A HEALING STORY: Tina B's son Luke enduredover four months worth of oral and intravenous antibiotics, several ER visits and a surgery to treat a serious infection. After all of this, Luke's gut health was under attack as all of his healthy bacteria had been eliminated through these treatments. A concerned friend introduced them to Enrich by TRANONT.

Our quote for this month is from the esteemed buddhist monk Thích Nhất Hạnh. Born in Vietnam, Thích was a leader in advocating for peace in his country and throughout the world. He passed away after a full life of service on January 22, 2022. As we approach Valentine's Day this quote presents a deeper take on love.
"…So the question is not "how can we obtain love and understanding?" The question is whether we have the capacity of generating love and understanding ourselves. If we do, we'll feel wonderful, because these energies satisfy us and the people around us at the same time…"
— Thích Nhất Hạnh
