The best gift you can give your teen is that of good health. It is in your hands to choose how you support your teen’s health and development. Good health begins with a strong foundation early in life. These developing years decide the fate of your teen’s physical, emotional, personality and mental development and it is during this time that you need to be proactive in providing the most appropriate environment and interventions aligned with nature.
