Health & Wellness


Both writers for Lights UP North have a college degree in Physical Education and Health.  One can only assume then that we have a strong interest in health and wellness.  This interest has strengthened further when we had to do a lot of research in hopes of getting our children well after a huge fight with skin diseases and allergies. Below we try to share some bits and pieces of lifestyle changes and discoveries we have made along our journey.
