In a world that is increasingly stocked with unhealthy quick options that pull us in with their efficiency yet drag us down with their dangerous additions more and more people are beginning to realize the benefits to healthy lifestyles. At the Island Wellness Market you will find people who share in your belief that living a more health conscience lifestyle pays off in the end. Living a healthy lifestyle will make you feel better, look better and live happier. The Island Wellness Market is “a locally-owned market in Carolina Beach dedicated to providing all natural and organic products and to helping redefine wellness by educating our island community on how to live a more healthy, balanced life.”
The Island Wellness Market is the fruition of the desire of Pleasure Island local Amy Sawyer who wanted to share her knowledge of the benefits of healthy lifestyle options with her neighbors and community. “In 2009, Amy considered all to be well. She and her husband had been living in Carolina Beach for nearly ten years; both had solid, well-paying jobs with benefits; they were able to travel and enjoy life on the island, and were often surrounded by fun activities, family, and friends. A health scare that Thanksgiving redefined what wellness meant. As Amy recuperated from her ordeal, which included a hospital stay and a month of medical leave from work, she began to discover a new version of wellness. A high paying job loaded with stress is not healthy. Foods that drain the body of energy rather than fuel it are not healthy. Thoughts that are not centered on success and dreams and purpose have a negative impact. It was the beginning of a journey to her own true wellness - total health of body, mind, and spirit. Now, she is sharing that journey and knowledge with her island community. On March 1, 2012, Amy resigned from her corporate job and began Island Wellness Market - a local health food market geared not only toward providing natural and organic products, but also a forum intended to help redefine wellness by educating consumers on how to live a more healthy, balanced life.”
