Spring Newsletter


March 2015                                                                              Vol. 10/ No.1

Dear Friends, 
Spring is a time of renewal, including an opportunity to renew a commitment to our whole body health. In this issue, integrative pediatrician Dr. Lawrence Rosen highlights the risks of energy drinks, which are linked to a rise in hyperactivity and ER visits among tweens and teens. Holistic nurse Maureen McDonnell offers simple and effective steps for optimal gut health. 
In honor of Autism Awareness Month in April, we give you access to a library of helpful articles from Autism File magazine, providing hope and help for autism families.
Additionally, we’re pleased to announce a partnership between our Greening The Cleaning® program and Practice Greenhealth, the nation’s leading membership organization for institutions and businesses in the healthcare field who are committed to sustainability. This partnership allows us to share the award-winning Greening The Cleaning® products, which deliver the maximum level of efficacy at the least level of toxicity, along with our expertise in proper cleaning techniques.
Did you know that 100% of all profits from GTC® products help support the Greening The Cleaning® program in addition to funding education and research at our Center? GTC® supporters make possible the Environmental Health Center’s program of education and action devoted to the health and well-being of children.  And there’s more to feel good about…Greening The Cleaning® products are filled and nationally distributed by another not-for-profit organization - the Central Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Utica, NY. Together, we’re changing the paradigm of healthy cleaning and helping others. 
Wishing you great health and wellness,
Deirdre Imus
