1st Holistic Wellness Fair

A fundraising event to promote Holistic Wellness in the community was organized by ADC and JCI Dagupan Bangus. The event was a convergence of advocates, speakers and consumers of healthy living. This was held last May 5 and 6 at the clubhouse of Palmas Verdes.

Holistic Wellness encompasses seven (7) aspects: Physical, Mental, Financial, Spiritual, Environment, Social and Emotional.


THE MARKET

There were about 30 vendors who participated in the said event with organic and unique items for everyone. Some of the products were not really widely available in Dagupan City hence, it was a good opportunity for the local consumers to gain awareness and access to such products.

 

THE TALKS

Aside from the market, there were also speakers who shared their knowledge. The listeners gained powerful insights.

 


Speakers from different industries and expertise came together to share their passion in promoting wellness to everyone.

One particular speaker from Manila, Dr. Marian Alonzo specializes in Integrative Medicine and serves as the Medical Chief for many years with The Farm Health Resort in Laguna. Cancer patients and people with illnesses including local celebrities, foreigners fly to The Farm and seek for Dr. Marian’s expertise for natural healing and science combined. Everyone benefited on the said talk imparting practical tips on health on how to balance individual’s seven chakras.
