    Benyamin Bridges' Holistic Health Expo.

    in Music

    Born in Harlem, NY and was raised in Mt. Vernon, NY. I graduated from Mt. Vernon High School and also

    went to Shaw University for 1year and Mercy College for 1year as well.

    I started out in the health industry as a manager of a health food store in Mt. Vernon, NY for 3 years. The

    store was called Sunbeam Health Food Store in the late 80’s. I also I became the Assistant Director of a

    Holis+c Health Center in Brooklyn in the Crown Heights area, the center was called Heal Thyself. This was

    done in the middle 80”s I was a director there for 3 1/2 years. I also started my own Holis+c Health

    Center out of my home in Mt. Vernon for about 4 years it was called the Fountain Of Health Holis+c

    Healing Center.

    NYC Amazing Holistic Health Expo is working on starting a movement to reawaken people to natural

    medicine that is not as dangerous to the human body. Not only the physical remedy but also looking at

    the spiritual & mental aspect of healing the individual and the community we live in and the world

    community as well. It may sound like a huge task but we really don’t know the spiritual ability that we

    are capable of achieving. Once we tap into the God Given Ability that lies dormant within us then we can

    truly bring about true change.

    Join host Petula Beckles as she talks with special guest Benyamin Bridges about the Holistic Expo and how to take care of our bodies.

    You were bred to be a slave in a tightly controlled society. Your chains are invisible. Your schools teach you to be content with your lot in life while they train you to follow orders. Your history has been changed, gradually. Your grandfather knew more than your father and less than his. You are poisoned at birth by Mercury contaminated vaccines. A time bomb, if you will. The poisoning continues throughout your teenage years and adulthood  Clayton R. Douglas clay@freeamerican.com www.freeamerican.com www.shop.freeamerican.com

    in News

    Hear interview with Mike Parsons and Lou Campomenosi about what is going on across the country when most Superintendents and Principals are stepping in lockstep to promote Common Core.  Sad state of affairs as the bottom line should be the right thing for our kids vs the right mantra coming from the top down.  It is time for parents to become  the media and shine the light of truth to save their children and this nation.
