Ruth Kendall, owner, Honeytree Health

Certified Nutrition, Wellness and Sports, Thomas Edison State, Trenton, NJ

The Honey Tree has been in Northfield, NJ for 30 years, my husband Keith and I started off as loyal customers until we were given the opportunity to purchase the business. After 20 years of working in the holistic industry myself, I finally felt at home. My holistic journey began with my first child, wanting to feed her well and supplement myself properly. Then two years later my son was born. My son was diagnosed with Multiple Hereditary Exostoses, which required me to learn so much more about his nutritional needs. I knew I needed to do something different, but it was a struggle. I found myself becoming hesitant of the medical regime they required, and it became difficult to balance between an allopathic and homeopathic routine. I sought a natural intervention. 

Seeking the intervention, I found a light to a new career. I began working for a nutritionist in Atlantic County while going back to school for Nutrition and Wellness. I was a sponge to all the information. I am so grateful this path led me to where I am now. With ownership, I get the amazing opportunity to help others achieve their optimal health.

We are available for private consultation and instruction with access to practitioner level products that assist you in your best health outcome. Honeytree is “Where People Come to Feel Better” 

When it comes to vitamins, supplements, herbs, homeopathic and the latest in natural pain management and Ionized/Alkaline Water solutions, we are a one stop health shop. We cater to our customers’ special needs along with everyday requests.

At Honeytree Health, we are rooted in community. We network with local natural health businesses to bring you the best products and services available. We provide retail, education, workshops, cooking seminars, demonstrations of new and innovative products for our friends and neighbors.  

I want The Honeytree to not only be my home but our communities’ home. We support small businesses and feel very passionate about collaborating and making the world a better place. All the businesses we network with can reverse our space or simply come to relax.

Drop in to see us, we love watching our community grow!

egistration required (609) 926-2699.

About Michele:

There was something about moving the little pieces around and making a design that made me so happy – and continues to do so. Since that day, I’ve learned by trial and error as well as by taking classes, attending workshops, and studying the work of other mosaic artists. I love to experiment with new materials and surfaces but along the way I’ve discovered that I keep going back to stained glass and mirror. I’ve also discovered that there’s a great interest in mosaic art with many people eager to learn as I did.  That’s why I started to teach classes to share what I’ve learned.

"Foundations of Health-Keys to a Long Life" presented by Anthony Dissen, MA, RDN Time 6:00 PM Location 700 New Road, Linwood, NJ 08221

Foundations of Health - Keys to a Long Life 

 

Wednesday, September 5th @ 6pm - Demystifying Protein, Carbohydrates, and Fats
What is a carb exactly? Is there such thing as too much protein? Lets answer these questions, and more, by taking the  mystery out of nutrition. This month we will go into detail about what exactly proteins, carbohydrates, and fats are, where they are found in the diet, and how they each impact our overall health and wellness.

Wednesday, October 3rd @ 6pm - The Medicine of Meditation
One of the most important predictors of a long, healthy life, is the amount of stress we have in our  lives. Or, to be more specific, how  much control we feel we have over our daily stress. Meditation has been shown to be a deeply powerful tool for not only stress management, but for actually reversing cellular aging and preventing cellular damage. Join  us as we discuss the basics of meditation, and practice some easy meditation exercises!


Wednesday November 7th @ 6pm - The Power of Enjoyable Exercise
Exercise and physical activity is just as important for our health as the food we eat. However, most of the exercise and fitness programs out there actually do us more harm than good! This month we will explore exactly what kinds of physical activity and exercise have been shown to prolong and improve life and vitality, and how they can be practiced at home without ever needing a gym.

 

Wednesday December 5th @ 6pm - Lessons in Longevity from Around the World
There are whole communities of people around the world living to be 90 or even 100 (and older!) who are still active, happy, sharp, and healthy. So, what are they doing that the rest of us are not? Let us take a trip around the world and learn some of the common traits of the world's healthiest and longest lived people.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Anthony Dissen, MA, RDN, Instructor of Health Sciences, Stockton University, will bring exciting information about each topic weekly. Each class in this series will focus on a specific topic to give you and your family the tools and information needed to improve overall health and wellness.
