Sunshine & Smiles

Deborah Tryon and photographer Lani Garfield celebrate with Lauren at the Welly Awards in May.

Why do we do all this crazy health stuff?

Because more and more of us are beginning to see the significant value of maintaining good health as we age. We’re fueling our bodies with essential nutrition over taste, exercising and practicing mind-body therapies because they feel good both physically and mentally and create a more positive and happy self.

The day-to-day decisions we make to remain on this path take a lot of conscious effort, and we thrive on inspiration from others.

In May, I was honored to join Edith Morrey and a group of her friends to celebrate her 104th birthday. She also attended this year’s Wellness Awards where guest speaker Bill Davis, M.D., was thrilled to meet her. Edith attributes her longevity to being wheat and dairy-free for 80 years, and Dr. Davis proudly posted his photo with her on his Wheat Belly Facebook page.

We were delighted to once again honor those in our community moving health and wellness forward at the second annual Desert Health® Wellness Awards (pg. 3). It was a spectacular evening that brought together kindred souls with the common goals of being the best that we can be and helping others to do the same.

Sometimes, no matter how healthy you live your life, disease can occur. Shay Moraga, a local yoga instructor and health enthusiast is bravely fighting triple negative breast cancer. Her positive attitude and grateful spirit have inspired hundreds on Facebook, and we are honored to have her share her story with you.

We hope you find inspiration on our pages and thank you for reading.

May your summer be filled with sunshine and smiles ~
