In June, we get the opportunity to celebrate our men. Whether it is our dad, our husband, son, mates or best friend - we want them all to know how much we cherish and adore them. So in the June newsletter, you will find books, presents and recipes that your guy will love! And, a special little shout out to my dad. The one who loves all of us so deeply, makes us laugh (always) and has taught us all so much. Love you daddy.
And remember, if you have a product, story or topic you want covered, we want to know. My team and I develop this newsletter around YOU! DonÂ’t be shy, let us know. All you have to do is email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Wishing you best health,
Dr. Joey Shulman DC, RNCP
