Island Wellness Market is locally owned and operated, and is the only dedicated health food store on the island. The goal is to help the community achieve optimum health by sharing knowledge on the benefits of quality supplements, holistic therapies and a healthy lifestyle. Amy Sawyer is not relaxing during the fall either; there are several classes and workshops coming up, such as Reiki clinics, GMO Awareness class, Healthy Weight Management and the Vegan potluck. One class that is being offered is a one-day juice cleanse. This gives your digestive system a rest and revive, refresh and renew with fresh, organic, cold-pressed juices. It cost $60 and it includes all your juices for the day, detailed cleansing guidelines and other supplemental documents for making healthy food choices.
Reiki is a spiritual practice developed by a Japanese Buddhist, it uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands-on-healing as a form of alternative medicine. The market offers a free clinic; you would need to follow the market on Facebook to see when the next clinic will be.
October is Non-GMO Awareness Month; the market is offering an awareness class to support the project. GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses or other plants and animals. You can attend the class to learn more about the foods that are in this category.
And, they continue to offer a Vegan Potluck every month at 6 p.m. at the market. All anyone has to do is bring a vegan dish, one that contains no meat, dairy, eggs or any other animal by-product. Label your dish and include an ingredient list and your name. Bring your own serving utensils for your dish, and your own plate, fork and beverage. Island Wellness Market also carries other products such as the skincare line from Aubrey Organics USA. These products are made exclusively with ingredients from nature, certified organic, never tested on animals, and the Everyday Basics cleansers and moisturizers are value priced at under $10. Follow Island Wellness Market on Facebook to learn when the classes are being held and staying informed on a healthier lifestyle through articles and tidbits that Sawyer discovers.
