Ride For A Reason
We sell more Encompass Nutrients in our office than any other product. We love their products and how much they benefit our customers, but we also love their mission of giving hope to orphans by giving 80% of their profits! This past weekend, they sponsored a big bike ride. Not big in number of participants, but in how many miles they rode. Read more about it here!
If you followed our blog last year, you probably know about the Tough Mudder team we sponsored that competed in the World’s Toughest Mudder held in New Jersey in November. However, you probably don’t know the whole story! Watch this video to learn more about how they decided to do it to begin with, challenges along the way, and how they impacted the lives of 10 young girls.
New Kid on the Block
We are proud to announce that we are carrying Encompass Nutrients in all three of our CCWC locations (Lagrange office to open on April 15th)! If you have never quite known what dietary supplements to take, because there are so many products out there, then look no further! There seems to be an endless amount of supplements available these days. You could literally spend hundreds of dollars every month to try to give your body the nutrition it needs in order to fill in the gaps of your diet. Some of the major or more popular ones are multivitamins, probiotics, fish oil, and super greens. If you’ve ever wondered to yourself, “why doesn’t someone just make one pill that has all of that in it”, you would’t be the first. However, it’s about time one company finally did something about it!
Encompass Nutrients is a new company that decided to ahead and simplify the dietary supplement market with what they call an “All-in-One Nutrient”. They have combined 19 vitamins & minerals, probiotic, Omega-3 fish oil, and their own proprietary blend of Super Green Whole Foods. Their product is called Complete Adult, and Dr. Holley in our Millersburg office says “It’s going to change the way we prescribe nutrients!” They have also developed a Joint formula which is meant to be a companion to Complete Adult. Together, they make quite the pair, and Dr. Waggoner believes so strongly in it that he prescribes it to every patient of his over the age of 15! It’s beneficial for everyone, and you’ll not only feel better physically, but also knowing that you are saving time and money! A two month supply of Complete Adult only runs $35 and Joint Health only runs $20 for a two month supply as well.
But wait! There’s actually even more good news. Encompass has not only provided us with an amazing product to offer our patients, but they also have an awesome mission! They are committed to giving 80% of their profits to care for orphans around the world! So, you’re not only improving your wellness, but you’re also taking part in giving back to a great cause! That’s why their tag line is, “Building Health. Giving Hope.” They exist for a great purpose.
What are you waiting for?! You can either stop in to any of our offices to pick up your Encompass Nutrients or purchase directly from their website. We believe so much in what they are doing, we really don’t care if you buy from them directly or from us. Everybody wins!
One Idea how to Save Ca$h to Help Save Lives
Want to sponsor a family adopting an orphan, and/or sponsor a child? Not sure how to make it happen on a budget? How about biking to work?
Most of our readers know by now that I have been on a journey this year to lose weight (41 pounds down, about 50 to go). Part of that journey is creating a habit and lifestyle of being active. As part of that, I have been biking to and from work a couple of days a week. I was commuting by bike to my offices this week, and was thinking about how much gas money I was saving by riding. I will save at least $50 dollars in my gas allowance a month! Now, I could use that money to bump up my cable package, or buy myself something nice. But why not change lives with it instead?
$19 a month will go to a boy at Lifesong schools.
$20 a month is going to Village To Village International designated to the Fry family. They are adopting two orphans from Ethiopia.
$10 leftover I will take my wife out for coffee, and enjoy spending time with her.
What can you give up to gain!? Sounds strange but I’m giving up driving to work 3 days a week to gain health, gain the privilege to help others, and gain some extra date time with my wife.
Dr. Waggoner was recently a guest blogger on Lifesong for Orphans’ website. He wrote about his experience with child sponsorship and what it means to him and his family. Just head to this link to read what he had to say!
Be a Sponsor!
Community Chiropractic & Wellness Center currently sponsors the 8 children you see above through monthly giving to Lifesong for Orphans. Join us in helping break the cycle of poverty by providing a child with an education, spiritual mentoring, and food through your monthly donation. You could literally change a life through giving only $19 a month! There are 587 unsponsored children in Lifesong’s program. Will you help one of them become one less statistic? Watch this video to learn more!

Village To Village Intl. (V2V)
CCWC is proud to be a part of a group that underwrites the operational cost of V2V.
What does this mean to you? Every dollar that you give goes directly to the project or family that you have chosen to give to (other than a small merchant fee if you’re donating with a credit card)! How awesome is that?!
Right now V2V has a cool promotion going on! If you commit to $10 a month, you get a cool V2V T-shirt. For every $10 more a month we will add another T-shirt. You can go to the following link to give.
Just Because You Can’t Do Everything, Don’t fail To Do Something,
We Like Adoption Too!
If you read my profile on the staff page of this website, you’ll notice that my wife and I are expecting. Sometime within the next 4-6 months (Lord willing) we will be traveling to Thailand to bring home a little boy as our son. I have never met him. But I have lost how many times I have cried tears of joy thinking about meeting him for the first time, and welcoming him into our lives. My wife stumbled upon a video that does a beautiful job of showing/explaining the joys of adopting a child that needs a family to call their own. The first time I watched it, I couldn’t hold back the tears seeing the beautiful faces of these children, and this beautiful diverse family. Please take a moment to watch this video. There are millions upon millions of orphans in the world today. Ask yourself if you might consider adoption as well. – Aaron Waggoner, Director of Public Relations & Fitness
The Business of Tithing
“A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the Lord; it is holy to the Lord” – Leviticus 27:30
“Will a man rob God? Yet you are robbing Me! But you say, ‘How have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse, for you are robbing Me, the whole nation of you! Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,”says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.” – Malachi 3:8-10
The idea of tithing has been around for thousands of years. In fact, it’s not as much an idea as it is a command. Most Christians today apply this to their personal lives. My wife and I for example; we give 10% of our income to our local church we attend. We don’t really see this as an option, but do so out of obedience to scripture. However, there aren’t too many businesses that follow this same model of giving. Sure, there may be special fundraising days where a Continue Reading »
