What does it say about our society and food supply when the closure of a single “nutrition” plant can lead to a crisis that has a direct impact on the health of the most innocent among us? I’m not going to stir a debate about the cause of the baby formula shortage and how a […]

As I reflect on the past 20 years, I always come back to my firm belief that God has been guiding my husband, James, on this journey. This goes all the way back to the time before James purchased the practice and building that are now Natural Healthcare Center. When James spoke with Dr. Dennis […]

Two years ago, after losing strength in my right arm and chest and experiencing severe neurological pain, I had an MRI for the first time in my life.
