Help with allergies & sinuses from Ranicki Chiropractic Wellness Center, Pooler

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Free allergy checkup SavannahHow can Chiropractic Care help with allergies and sinuses?

Allergy season is here – and millions of Americans are facing months of suffering and living on allergy medicines they’d rather not take. There are , however, a few tricks that work for many people to make allergy season their favorite time of the year.

Consuming a daily tablespoon of local honey is a great trick for allergy sufferers. Since the way this trick works is to slowly expose the body to the pollens the bees collect, it does need to be locally collected and fresh. Check Ranicki Chiropractic Wellness Center’s favorite place to get local honey, Polk’s Plus in Pooler, GA. You can also check out the Farmer’s Market in Forsyth Park on Saturdays.

Since the nervous system influences the immune system’s internal threat alert, improving the communication between your nervous and immune systems thru chiropractic care can be a big help to many allergy sufferers. Details here.

Whole Foods Market opens in Savannah Tues. Aug. 13; Sneak preview tours available for $5 donation

Whole Foods Market Savannah opens Aug. 13 2013

Seems like just a short while ago when I wrote a column entitled “Hurry Whole Foods, Savannah is waiting!” in anticipation of a Whole Foods Market opening in Savannah. That wish is coming true this summer!

Whole Foods Market will open its doors Tuesday, August 13, at 9 AM at 1815 East Victory Drive in Savannah.

The 35,000 square-foot store features an organic salad bar, in-store smoked barbecue, fresh-made gelato, natural body care and nutritional supplements, and a parlor with 8 beers on tap.

Earlier this spring, Whole Foods Market teamed up with Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) for the Savannah Mural Design Challenge. Shoppers can see the winning design, a 20’ X 70’ mural, prominently displayed on the side of the building. The second place design will also be featured on limited-edition bags and t-shirts for sale at the store.

Whole Foods Market will also offer an early look at its newest Georgia store with sneak-preview tours. For a $5 donation to the West Broad Street YMCA’s Growing Edge Community Garden Project, curious customers can take a pre-opening tour of the store at a specified time slot. Tours are scheduled between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Friday, August 9, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, August 10.

Advance registration is required, and the link will be live on July 22: http://savannah.wholefoodsrsvp.com .

Tour attendees will be the first to get a glimpse of the new store, learn a bit about Whole Foods Market and the store highlights, taste samples, and receive a goodie bag. The store opens for business Tuesday, August 13, immediately following a bread-breaking ceremony (Whole Foods Market’s version of a ribbon-cutting,) with city officials and special guests. Customers arriving before 8:30 a.m. receive a free raffle ticket and are automatically entered to win a gift card ranging from five dollars to $500.

Whole Foods Market Savannah on Facebook here & on Twitter: @ WFMSavannah

We’d love to have Whole Foods Market Savannah partner SouthernMamas.com! So when you check out the new store, please tell them SouthernMamas.com is a great place to spread the word to local parents!
