The second speaker, Sandi Sopko, will talk about RELIV International and how to build the immune system to live a healthier life. She studied diagnostic and cancer treatment at Deaconess Hospital School of Radiology.Judith Axelson, from Sun City West, will talk about and demonstrate “Healing Touch.” This program is an energy therapy in which practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.

Healing Touch is a biofield (magnetic field around the body) therapy that is an energy-based approach to health and healing.

These non-invasive techniques employ the hands to clear, energize and balance the human and environmental energy fields, thus affecting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

While at the Crown of Life Health Fair, attendees can get their questions answered and collect free resources from many local, senior care and health providers. They also offer expert advice on a myriad of topics including senior living options, home care choices, insurance alternatives, elder law and help with government programs.

There will be free food and door prizes as well.
