Thinking Outside the Bottle

I wonder how many of you looked at this month’s topic and thought “Oh, here we go – another article on antiaging?” I know, I sort of thought the same thing when I was assigned the topic.

It’s hard to believe that summer is over, and that Autumn is in full swing. Where do the days go? I recently had a yoga instructor make the most beautiful comment about the changing of seasons.

For over 30 years, I have watched our industry explode into a force in which we would never have imagined, with technology, ingredients, and equipment that truly change the face of the business. Although health and wellness have always been a component of our industry, now, more than ever, they are taking center stage. The topic of alternative medicine is a tricky one, clearly not…
