The 9th annual Amador County Holistic Health and Wellness Fair will take place on Saturday, January 26, sponsored by Motherlode Holistic Wellness Center of Jackson. The event will be from 11 am to 4 pm at the Amador Senior Center in Jackson, at 229 New York Ranch Road. It is a free event, open to the public, with a myriad of vendors representing complementary health resources and healthy lifestyle choices.
According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, a branch of the National Institutes of Health, “[m]any Americans use complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in pursuit of health and well-being. The 2007 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), which included a comprehensive survey of CAM use by Americans, showed that approximately 38 percent of adults use CAM.” Interest in these new and ancient therapies continues to grow, as people look for natural, non-invasive ways to promote health and healing.
The foundation for the Amador County Holistic Health and Wellness Fair is to provide the community an opportunity to experience natural approaches to health by showcasing vendors who specialize in a wide array of complementary health and wellness disciplines. In addition to supporting holistic health and wellness practitioners and products, the Amador County Holistic Health and Wellness Fair is committed to a healthy community, with green lifestyle choices such as eating locally, converting to solar, and recycling. The fair highlights the many choices we have available in our community to take responsibility for our health care choices, to live life joyfully and with care for our community and world.
There will be speakers and demonstrations throughout the day, information booths, and product sales.
Kneading Dough Bakery of Volcano will be offering a delicious and simple lunch of warm soup and baked goods at a great price.
