SA Natural ladies breakfast focusses attention on staying healthy the natural way

Carmen Human with Estie Schreiber who gave an insightful presentation on how to stay healthy the natural way.

Mopani Pharmacy treated more than 100 local women to a ladies breakfast on 9 November at Nou’sToeka, Nelspruit.

EstieScreiber of SA Natural Products gave a presentation on staying healthy the natural way. She highlighted the fact that our bodies constantly talk to us, drawing our attention to imbalances, overload or toxicity. By taking the time to get to know your body and observing changes, women can become more informed about their bodies’ health and take the necessary preventative measures for staying healthy. Some signs to look out for include little bumps on the back of the upper arms which indicates excess acidity or dry and flaky skin which might be linked to a sulphur deficiency.

Schreiber’s presentation was favourably received by the attendees with many requesting her to do a follow up presentation in the near future. Afterwards a buffet style breakfast was served and ensuring nobody went home empty handed, each was spoiled with a Sally Hansen hand cream and some Bio Strath tablets.
