Scores of residents from the young to the elderly found their way to the health fair in the park, attracted by the lively music, a fresh juice bar and booths where anyone could take part in a host of free medical checkups– from nutrition counseling, mammographies and vision testing, to cancer, diabetes and dental screenings.

Aside from live DJ music and the an exhibitors plaza, visitors were treated to live stage performances and a “Get Fit Zone,” that offered a fun and interesting round of guided exercises and fitness demos for adults and outdoor play equipment for the children.

  1. In July of 2015. it was discovered that I got type 2 diabetes, By the end of the July month. I was given a prescription for the Metformin, I stated with the ADA diet and followed it completely for several weeks but was unable to get my blood sugar below 140, Without results to how for my hard work. I really panicked and called my doctor. His response?? Deal with it yourself, I started to feel that something wasn’t right and do my own research, Then I found Lisa’s great blog (google ” HOW I FREED MYSELF FROM THE DIABETES ” ) .. I read it from cover to cover and I started with the diet and by the next morning. my blood sugar was 100, Since then. I get a fasting reading between the mid 70s and 80s, My doctor was very surprised at the results that. the next week. he took me off the Metformin drug, I lost 30 pounds in my first month and lost more than 6 inches off my waist and I’m able to work out twice a day while still having lots of energy. The truth is that we can get off the drugs and help myself by trying natural methods….
