‘Quest for Health’ presented to BPW

GREENVILLE--The Individual Development Program (IDP) Committee of the Greenville Business & Professional Women’s (BPW) Club hosted the Nov. 8 meeting held at the Brethren Retirement Center.

IDP Chair Jane Carroll and committee members Rebecca Zeedyk, Leigh Fletcher and Marilyn Fletcher planned the meeting that featured two speakers who spoke on The Quest for Health and how to create a safe and healthy home. The first speaker Liz Sanchez, a cardiology physician’s assistant and yoga instructor, conducts a workshop entitled ‘Yoga for Weight Loss.’ She gave an energetic presentation on being responsible for our own health. She emphasizes starting to calm your mind which will lead to a calm body and highly recommends meditation on a daily basis. Liz went over steps to elicit the relaxation response. She closed her program discussing the symptoms of heart disease in women.

Stephanie Green, RDH Marketing Executive for Melaleuca, the Wellness Company, covered indoor air pollution awareness and how to create a safe and healthy home. Many ordinary household cleaners and products contain toxins and chemicals that are harmful to everyone in the home. Green gave some examples of studies where toxic chemicals are causing harm such as household cleaners being ingested by children causing 3 million poisonings every year. Stephanie had examples of the Melaleuca products and told how they are used in the home to promote good health.

The Greenville BPW Club’s mission is to achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education, and information. The Club holds fund raisers throughout the year to raise money to grant scholarships to the young women of Darke County. The Club meets the second Thursday of every month for a dinner meeting.
