Deirdre_approved_new_photo_11-6_FinalDear friends,

Spring is on its way, and with it comes a chance for renewal, a vital opportunity to clean up and clean out in all areas of our lives. If you’ve been feeling weighed down by winter, we’ve got just the stuff to get you revved up for spring’s beautiful gifts.

Have you been considering swapping that daily cup of joe for a pot of tea? Our medical advisor Dr. Ben Kligler offers tools for optimizing your health through everyday herbal teas. They are full of medicinal properties, and though teas like chai and mate might seem like current trends, herbal teas have actually been used for centuries to calm colds, ease aches, and promote overall wellness.

Spring cleaning might seem cliché, but why not take advantage of this age-old activity? Kick your professional cleaning into high-gear with our tips for high speed burnishing. This underused approach will make any floor shine! We explain the difference between buffing and burnishing, and how it can help smooth out scratches where dirt likes to hide. Check out our Greening the Cleaning® program, part of our sustainability efforts, which have won several awards in 2018, including the Practice Greenhealth Top 25 Green Hospital award.

As always, our healthy recipes will inspire you to take advantage of spring’s bounty of vegetables, and to eat the delicious rainbow all season long. 

Wishing you health and wellness,
