Dear Members - February 2019


Dear Members,

Ready or not February is quickly coming to an end, but the year is young and we have lots of plans for 2019. We will continue spreading the news to more individuals about a simpler, more direct healthcare model. We will begin meeting with small business employers to talk about the opportunities for their offering primary care to their employees for a low monthly fee. We will also be going out to different local organizations to spread the word. If you know of someone you would like to invite to join, we will say thanks with one free nutraceutical or botanical from our shelf for each new member referred by you!

We hope you enjoy this second edition Luminosity, A Newsletter by Ridgway Center for Whole Health. Here we will share interesting articles, research, recipes, and supplements.

And now, here’s a look at your membership services.

Ask about the “Living Matrix,” system. The system incorporates the visual tools of the Timeline and Functional Medicine Matrix that provide a clearer picture. LivingMatrix enables you to easily document the unfolding phenomena that lead to ill health – a process that often occurs over many years, perhaps even a lifetime. It gives you and your practitioner the “Big Picture” so you can take the necessary steps to build back your health and get the best outcomes possible.

We have partnered with AHNP Precision Health to offer the only Bredesen-approved protocol for preventing, treating, and reversing Alzheimer’s disease and cognitive decline. AHNP programs are designed to fit anyone, whether you’re already showing symptoms or simply hoping to prevent them.
