HANCOCK -- Kate Alvord will lead off the fall series of Optimal Wellness classes with with "Detox 101: Simple Ways to Avoid Toxins and Build Health" at 6:30 p.m. this Wednesday evening, Sept. 16, in Room 324 of the Jutila Center (old hospital) in Hancock.
"Please come join us!" Alvord says. "We will talk about detox: what it is, why we can all benefit from it, ways to avoid toxin exposures and a few how-tos for easy do-it-yourself detox methods. This is a topic that's become personally very important to me since my husband, Kraig, was diagnosed with multiple chemical sensitivities about five years ago. We've learned a tremendous amount about detox since then, and I hope to pass on some key information in our hour-long class."
The class is $10 at the door and includes handouts. The Jutila Center is at 200 Michigan Street in Hancock.
