A different kind of health group


There is one lone woman trying to inform people about natural health. She is Cheri Papier. She’s been holding a health group at her apartment for several years. She does have a degree from Harvard in public health. “I do this because I like to help people find out about ways to keep healthy,” says Cheri.

She does take the natural approach.  I’ve learned about homeopathic  and integrative medicine. She likes to talk about vitamins, the right food, and taking care of yourself. She is also a Reiki Master, and sometimes discussed mental health.

The women, and men who attend the group show up every week.  It’s more than a health group. It’s a social gathering. They ask each other how they are, and give each other emotional support.

I asked them what they got out of the group.

Here are some answers:

“It’s enlightening for a group with a common interest, eating properly and a healthy lifestyle, to get together to discuss it.”

“I’ve learned a lot, I pick and choose between what i want to learn. I come for the friendship

People meet weekly to talk about good health and share friendship too!

too.”

“Although I don’t always agree with everything Cheri says, I always pickup some good information. It’s always good to have an open mind.”

Cheri also brings in guest speakers who talk about their experiences with living a healthy lifestyle.

It’s very important to feel connected to other people.

It improves your health!
