“The concept of total wellness recognizes that our every thought, word, and behavior affects our greater health and well-being. And we, in turn, are affected not only emotionally but also physically and spiritually.”

A Message From Laura

Even before I suffered the damage to my vision, I was aware of how being active and following a sensible eating plan was important for an overall feeling of wellbeing. And thanks to my guide dog Wagner, I can still maintain my fitness by walking.

Whether you are living with a disability, a chronic condition or just want to make better choices for your health, I hope you'll find the information we compile here to be helpful for your overall wellbeing.
