Wellness – Part Two

Wellness as we know it means an active exploration of any and all ways we can each seek to be healthier and happier, whether we’re battling an illness, tending to someone who’s ill, or looking for a little tenderness in our later years.

In this week’s Wellness from the Ground Up: Part Two, we go beyond the statistics to take a peek at some ways Western North Carolinians pursue that overarching goal. Edneyville resident Martha Clyburn offers a look at what caregivers need themselves as they look after loved ones. Health care advocate Leslie Boyd says we need to “get real” with how we think about disease (and the people who suffer from one). Our look at pet health continues, and Mountain Xpress food writer Mackensy Lunsford provides another perspective on the school cafeteria.

In the coming weeks and months, look to our new weekly Wellness section for a variety of health-related articles, musings and experiences, ranging from straight news to first-person accounts.
