Our Mission Statement
We are dedicated to helping others through education and consulting in the areas of nutrition and lifestyle choices. We believe that individuals are best physically nourished by nutrient-dense real food. At Biodynamic Wellness we embrace the principles of Dr. Weston A. Price and those taught by the Weston A. Price Foundation. Optimal health comes through real food, nutritional therapy when needed, the adopting of healthy lifestyle practices and the proper addressing of stress negatively impacting one’s mind and spirit. Our goal is to provide an environment where these areas of need can be well supported and where each person we serve will have the opportunity to experience their best potential for wellness.
The human body has been designed with an amazing capacity for self-regulation and self-healing. The body is constantly working to be at ease. If we pay attention to its signals and provide true nourishment for the body, mind and spirit, it will serve us well during our time on earth.

Since conventional craft supplies often contain toxic chemicals that are easily absorbed through your child’s skin, here are some non-toxic craft-making alternatives to try.
