Message from Nathan Zassman
Aviva Natural Health Solutions is my personal concept of what a health and wellness company should be. With a broad and comprehensive product line, I feel that no other company offers the diversified and complete selection of health and wellness products found at Aviva.
Our retail center is located in the St. James neighbourhood of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. On display you'll find a comprehensive selection of nutritional supplements, natural body care products, aromatherapy products, air purification systems, water purifiers, lighting solutions, foot health products, organic beds, and much more.
The Aviva approach is to improve health and wellness by integrating proven health promoting technologies into a person's lifestyle. With certifications in nutritional therapy, I maintain a limited clinical practice, and prepare educational material on a wide variety of health topics for my clients and for publication on avivahealth.com. We also hold in-store seminars with guest speakers which are another great way to share information about specific topics, products, and healthy living.
I spend as much time as possible studying the latest published research to learn the most effective application of orthomolecular therapies, using vitamins, herbs, and foods for healing mind and body. Through continual research and study, my goal is to find the most advanced clinically-proven health and wellness products that can improve the health of my clients and our customers. I focus on products and solutions that can easily be integrated into one's lifestyle, so that health improvement can become so natural that no conscious effort is required.
