Thank you very much for your interest in Artemis in the City and the work that we are doing to help educate and empower people to take control of their own health and well-being; make better health choices; prevent or reverse disease and create a balanced life filled with good health, happiness and love.

Since forming, our holistic health and natural whole foods nutrition support services have been an important catalyst of healing for many people who needed to make nutrition and lifestyle changes in order to address various health issues and disease. For some people, Artemis in the City was their last hope for help where they finally found the help that they needed. Please read our client testimonials to gain an understanding of the difference we are making in people’s lives.

Throughout each year we have consistently spent a lot of time and resources educating people on the importance of lifestyle and food choices and inspiring them to live healthier lives in which they actively take responsibility for their own health. Over the years we have reached thousands of people with our important health messages through our exhibits, lectures, presentations, film showings, free health history sessions, media interviews, e-newsletter and online presence. Please view our event gallery and newsroom to see us in action.

Additionally, as a founding board member and vice president of the Historic Longview Farmers Market, many hours of community service work have been donated to help develop a local and sustainable market in order to create a healthier community. Please view our farmers market gallery.

Each year Artemis in the City incurs many costs for efforts to create greater awareness of the connection between food and lifestyle choices and health, and to help people live healthier lives. We consciously have chosen not to represent any supplemental products or sell advertising through our website in order to maintain an unbiased resource for health and wellness. In the future we plan to develop our own educational health materials as we grow and would also like to build an integrative healing center. Currently we are in need of support and many supplies including a better printer and vegetable juicers that produce high quality juice for people with autoimmune system diseases and cancer.

If you support the important work that we are doing or have benefited in some way from the information you have received, please consider making a donation to help Artemis in the City continue. Any support big or small that you can offer would be most appreciated. (Read Full Article to Make a Donation)

Take Action Now - Child Nutrition Reauthorization!

Posted: Mon, Oct 4, 2010
By: Danielle Heard, MS, HHC

There is still time for you to contact your congressional representatives to request that they pass a bill that will deliver significant funding, improvements and provisions to the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act in order to help America's children overcome childhood obesity and eliminate hunger.

This is an extremely important piece of legislation that includes the National School Lunch Program, School Nutrition Program, Summer Food Service Program, Child and Adult Care Food Program, Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) and other miscellaneous related programs. Your calls and letters to your representatives can help encourage the passing of a bill that will deliver enough funding and legislative change to significantly make a difference in the health of children.

Both the House of Representatives and the Senate have each been working on developing revised versions of the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act as the current version expired on September 30, 2010.

The House of Representatives Committee of Education and Labor finalized their version of bill H.R. 5504 in July 2010 but Representative George Miller, who is the Chairman for the Committee of Education and Labor has not yet announced how he will move forward with the bill. H.R. 5504 is titled "Improving Nutrition for America's Children Act," and would provide $8 billion dollars in funding for child nutrition programs.

Tyler, Texas emerges as a city that is leading the East Texas area in environmentalism.

Farmers Market Update, News Articles, Photos and Video

Posted: Sun, Sep 5, 2010
By: Danielle Heard, MS, HHC

To all my readers and friends, it has been a very busy spring and summer. So busy that I have had to take the past several months off from blogging and my newsletter. I can't believe that it is already September. I will do my best to catch you up!

2010 can be considered my year of the farmers market! In February 2010, I joined with a group of people in my hometown of Longview, Texas to form the Historic Longview Farmers Market. The first three months were spent developing the board, the board bylaws, the market application and rules and regulations as well as the logo and the website.

Because bringing fresh, local, sustainable food to my hometown community is so very important to me, I took the lead on researching area farmers, contacting them and acquiring them for the market. In just two months we grew from five vendors to 20 vendors that rotate in and out of the market. This is remarkable since these farmers are not wholesalers but are all high quality small independent farmers who truly love to farm and are conscious of how they are growing their crops and making their products.

On Saturday, May 15, 2010, the market opened with a sell out success! Joycelyne Fadojutimi of the East Texas Review and Bob Hallmark of KLTV Channel 7 News both attended to report on the market opening. I would like to thank both of these reporters for doing such a great job of covering the story. To read the East Texas Review article "Eating, Living Well," online click here or download the newspaper pdfs page 1 and page 2. Watch the video of Bob Hallmark's story below.

Buy Local and Fresh at the Historic Longview Farmers Market

Posted: Tue, May 11, 2010
By: Danielle Heard, MS, HHC

Saturday, May 15, 2010 marks the opening of the Historic Longview Farmers Market and the beginning of a movement to bring fresh local and sustainable food to the city of Longview, a city that is in need of better quality food.

Grocery shopping in Longview leaves the most health conscious person longing for quality food and culinary artists in a state of great depression. More often than not, the food found in the grocery stores is from many miles away and is not organic. By the time the food reaches the store, it is not fresh or vibrant, which is disappointing considering Texas leads the nation with 247,500 farms and ranches that cover 130.4 million acres (Texas Department of Agriculture). Instead, Texas ranks fourth overall in agricultural exports and is a leading exporter of cotton, feeds, peanuts, live animals, meat, poultry, animal fats, hides and skins, milk, grains and nuts.

The Historic Longview Farmers Market will provide the many wonderful growers and producers from all over East Texas a central location to showcase local and sustainable food along with other non-food products, and enable them to sell their products directly to the community. According to the Texas Department of Agriculture, 98.5% of Texas farms and ranches are family farms, partnerships or family-held corporations. The farmers market will not only help build the local economy, but it will give people the opportunity to buy food directly from family farms and find comfort in knowing where their food came from and the conditions which it was raised.

The home of the new farmers market is the historic Kelly Plow Works parking lot in downtown Longview located on (read full article)

East Texans Find Natural Health Alternatives at the Wellness Expo 2010

Posted: Sun, May 9, 2010
By: Danielle Heard, MS, HHC

Robert and Antoniette Rozean of Wellness Productions, Co. produced another great East Texas Natural Wellness Expo. The event was a great opportunity for people of East Texas to learn more about natural health alternatives and to sample some delicious organic quality foods and other products.

The expo was held at the Harvey Convention Center in Tyler, TX on April 17-18, 2010 and included approximately 100 natural health and wellness vendors. The event hosted a wide variety of professionals with expertise in areas such as holistic health, fitness, nutrition, chiropractic, colon therapy, water and air filtration systems, therapeutic health products, thermography, skin care, body massage, essential oils, environmental wellness, personal growth, health food, natural supplements, natural health for children and pets, organic farming products, energy healing and more!

Each year the expo hosts many national speakers who are experts in their field. This year the guest speakers included Doug Kaufman, host of the television show "Know the Cause," Sally Fallon Morell, President of the Weston A. Price Foundation and author of "Nourishing Traditions," Jordan Rubin, NMD, PhD and author of "The Maker's Diet" who healed himself of Crohn's Disease, and Robert Scott Bell of the "RS Bell Radio Show." During the two day event, there were many other guest speakers and demonstrators who presented educational information designed to help people take control of their health naturally.

I really enjoyed meeting and talking with the people that attended the expo. Some people traveled from many miles away to attend this special event in East Texas, especially those dealing with a serious health issue. I also enjoyed meeting many of the vendors, sampling their products and overdosing on the delicious food.

One of my favorite products at the expo was (read full article to also view photos)
