GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.  – Just in time to kick-off a healthier 2014, the inaugural Whole U GR Holistic Health Expo will take place Saturday, January 25 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the St.Cecilia Music Center.


The Expo will integrate the body, mind, spirit and community of Grand Rapids by featuring local health businesses, retailers and exhibitors. Organizers expect more than a thousand attendees will enjoy the seminars, hands-on cooking classes and demonstrations led by local health practitioners. Martha Cudlipp, co-founder of Whole U GR, was inspired to organize the event with fellow health practitioners, Christine Sharp (IE3 Bodywellness) and Naturopath Sarah Mokma (Rooted Well), afterexperiencing GR Unveiled at St. Cecilia Music Center this past year.


“I loved how intimate GR Unveiled was with a spotlight on localbusinesses,” Cudlipp says. “St. Cecilia offers the perfect, intimate setting for this kind of event and we have many superior health andnutrition businesses in Grand Rapids to showcase.” Local businesses that will be featured include Simple Truth Chiropractic, Get Waisted, WOTV 4’s Margaux Drake, Everbest Organics Owner Jim Sattelberg, and Doorganics.


“It doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to live healthfully,” Cudlipp adds. “We are hoping to expose attendees to various aspects of healthy living including organic food, eating local, fitness, supporting a healthy planet, disease prevention and more. Even small changes in these areas can have a large impact on one’s overall health.”
