12 PM – Simple Changes for Optimum Health”
with Susie Dittmar

I will be speaking today on some simple changes you can do to put yourself on the road to optimum health. I will begin to educate and inform you about natural health and some wonderful options I know to help you heal.  
As my mission statement says, “Nourishing a higher quality of life with OPTIMUM HEALTH and wellbeing free of aches and pains, health challenges, and weight problems. I’ll help you feel better!”
I have had a passion, and been a practitioner of holistic wellness, for 30-plus years. My education continues every day. I earned my Doctorate of Naturopathy (N.D.) from Trinity School of Natural Health. Naturopathy is the oldest-drugless school of healing in existence. An N.D. believes the human body has an innate healing ability, and your symptoms signal a nutritional deficiency in the system. I work with you to identify the causes of your health challenges, assist your body in eliminating toxins and then recommend (primarily) herbs and vitamins to correct the imbalance and stimulate your body’s own natural healing abilities. As an N.D., I blend centuries-old knowledge with a philosophy that nature is the most effective healer. And it’s been an amazing adventure of acquiring centuries worth of wisdom.
