Health and wellness expo coming to Troy Thursday

Published 3:00 am Saturday, June 20, 2015

Young Living Essential Oils is hosting the Elevate Health and Wellness Expo, allowing the Troy community to explore new options for health in everyday life.

Essential oils are health-promoting oils that are becoming more popular, and this expo will answer any questions one may have about their benefits.

“It’s a different kind of event that Troy hasn’t had yet,” said Lisa Michael, Young Living Essential Oils independent distributor and a host of the expo. “We are all changing our direction. Everybody is wanting to find a healthy way to live and promote their lifestyles. We can use [essential oils] to help benefit our lifestyles and a healthier life.”

The expo will offer classes, as well as information booth. Anyone can come and go as they please, visiting the booths and/or attending the classes.

Dr. Jim Bob Haggerton, who practices chiropractic medicine in Texas, will host two classes at the expo. His first class, at 4:30 p.m., will discuss pain and inflammation. Later in the expo, at 7 p.m., he will speak on ‘Hormone Essentials for the Crazy Swings of Life.’

Essentials Oils 101 will be held at 5:45 to discuss how to use the oils and what they do for the body and mind.

“People have a lot of questions about how they work,” Michael said. “It’s a basic information event. A lot of people don’t know what they are or have a lot of assumptions of what they are. We just want to try to give people options.”

Michael has been with Young Living for one year.

“It has revolutionized how I’ve looked at my own health and what I do daily,” she said. “It’s news that I can’t not share. I don’t want to keep it from others who could use the information. I started research about the company, and when I saw what it could do for me and my family, it changed what I do with my health.”

Other booths at the expo will include Zumba, jewelry, information on having a chemical-free home and an electromagnetic scan.

The scan is painless and simply tells what a body is lacking and what supplements it needs, according to Michael.

The CHHS band will also be at the expo. They will be selling snacks to help raise money for the band.

The expo is free and will be at Charles Henderson High School June 25 from 3:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

“It’s just an overall promotion of health and well being,” Michael said.

“We can change our lives in a proactive way. We just want Troy to know that there are options out there.”
