It can be with the Look-Great, Feel-Amazing, Change the World Lifestyle, a holistic program to manage your mood; move your body (without wishing you were somewhere else); eat colorful, compassionate, glorious food; and get on the detox bandwagon so you can live in radiant health despite the stressors and pollutants of the 21st century.

The speaker is not only a certified Holistic Health Counselor (HHC, AADP), she walks the walk keeping off a 60-pound weight loss for over 30 years and exuding the vitality and exuberance you can realize for yourself by putting these simple principles to work in your own life at your own pace. This isnt about perfection: its about loving every day of your life.
