"I understand the Elements Of Physical Well-being (Breathing, Hydration, Nutrition and Exercise). These physical elements are not just essential for a functional Healthy Body, but also a very important factor in keeping a Healthy Mind. The combination of a healthy mind & body enhances your Inner Power which leads you to a Positive State of Mind and allows you to Create What You Want.
My practice is simply finding natural health channels to help people reach and maintain excellent health without using harmful drugs, but instead good nutrition, herbal remedies, healthy supplements, customized exercises and what's most important; keep a happy, healthy and positive mind. My expertise and passion for what I do is the drive that keeps me, my clients and patients going.
My wife and I love life and nature. Together we are living our dreams to have the most complete, advanced and nature oriented wellness center for our community! We are delighted to welcome you to join our wellness family" Lou De Vettori
