Business Spotlight: SoulFULL Conception

I have always been fascinated by the power of food and how it affects the body. Food is a language communicating with cells and DNA shaping our health and well-being. When we consume healthy, whole foods, our bodies know exactly what to do.

However, when we consume unhealthy, toxic food, the lines of communication become unclear, creating confusion, inflammation, and a cascade of symptoms, including fertility struggles.

My own experience in reclaiming my health has given me the knowledge and purpose to guide others in finding their power to take control of their health and embrace the incredible potential that lies within them.

I started my practice by working with people dealing with GI dysfunction and autoimmune conditions. I am a health detective – I dig deep to uncover the underlying cause of my client’s health issues and guide them to learn how to listen to their bodies to make sustainable changes to reach their health goals.

Over time I realized that so many of my female clients were looking for relief because they wanted to start or grow their family.

This led me to create SoulFull Conception: PurposeFull Living for a Healthy Body, a Healthy Pregnancy, and a Health Baby. The focus is preconception planning, providing women and their spouses with the tools and knowledge to achieve optimal health before attempting to conceive.

SoulFull Conception is a comprehensive guide to natural fertility, offering individualized recommendations and expert guidance from me and a host of experts. Amazingly, 5 or more lifestyle changes can reduce infertility risk by 80%! The program prepares couples with a plan of action to ensure the health of the couple and their future baby.

Optimizing health today has the potential to positively influence the health of seven generations to come. Miracles can unfold when the power of food and lifestyle are embraced. We each possess the power to create a healthier and brighter future for ourselves and generations to come.

Food is life – Taste Life!

Business Spotlight: Artcentric

Here’s a message from one of Wheat Ridge’s new business owners! We are excited to have you in the Wheat Ridge community.

Hello, my name is Russell Wilbar and I own Artcentric, a new art gallery / frame shop / creative space here in Wheat Ridge. 

Artcentric is not just a name on a sign, it is truly what we are! A place where art is created, fostered, and appreciated. Imagination and kindness is as important as the brick and mortar!  

Not only is Artcentric a place that does conservation grade fine art framing, we also feature creative classes and coordinate Art Shows from local artists. 

As a picture framer, I have over 25 years experience working with artists, interior designers, and creative professionals to make their art and design projects look amazing and come in at a budget that works for their needs. Using over 12 different vendors, we have a wide array of frame styles and price points available. We do every part of the framing process in house, guaranteeing superior quality and efficient timelines. Artwork, family photos, concert posters, family keepsakes, or just that something special, can be made timeless with the right design and care and we would love to help. 

Framing is not all we do here. We are dedicated to being a creative outlet to our community by offering classes (at all skill levels) and curated shows from local and regional artists.  

Here at Artcentric we believe that being creative is key to emotional and mental health. We are dedicated to being a creative hub where people in the community can come by, create something special, and meet other creative art lovers. 

We are so happy to be here in the gallery @ 38 building, located at 7172 W. 38th Ave. right along the Ridge @ 38! Come on by. We would love to meet you!

Business Spotlight: Mestizo Brew Cantina

If you’ve been watching the corner of 38th and Pierce, you have patiently witnessed the evolution of Mestizo Brew Cantina. What started nearly two and a half years ago, with a “Blue Bus” (aka: Mestizo food truck) parked in front of the former Quality Automotive as it was being converted to Mestizo Brew Cantina, is finally complete. And now that we are open, the brew house can be front and center, while the blue bus has found its permanent home out back.

Brewer-owned and operated, Mestizo Brew Cantina has a mission to provide the local community a unique brewpub experience in a vibrant, intimate setting, rooted in a passion for authentic Latin American cuisine, paired with the finest quality craft beer. The vision for Mestizo, pronounced: meˈstē zō, a Latin American term originally used to describe a person of both indigenous and European descent, is personal, reflecting owner/head brewer Ryan Piec’s Mexican & European heritage. Piec’s extensive brewing experience is grounded in the European brewing tradition. This, combined with a simple menu representing the bold flavors and ingredients of Mexican and Latin American cuisine, and you have Mestizo Brew Cantina. 

The community-feel and warm bienvenido you get walking into Mestizo pours out of our close-knit team. Mestizo’s amazing front of house staff, led by our Front of House Manager, Rachel Garofalo, is made up of familiar faces who already serve our local Wheat Ridge community in so many ways. And our seasoned, hard working, back of house team is committed to preparing each and every Mestizo menu item from scratch, con mucho corazon, as though they were cooking for family. We also ensure our back of house is receiving an extra 3% livable wage tip on every order. Taking care of our Mestizo familia will always be a core value of ours.

Mestizo Brew Cantina is deeply grateful to be opening its doors (and completing the official ribbon cutting as of Thursday!) in Wheat Ridge. Wheat Ridge is where we started raising our family nearly 10 years ago, bought our first home, and now, opened our first business. It is the supportive community of Wheat Ridge, including– fellow “Ridge” on 38th businesses & neighbors, WRBD, WR Chamber of Commerce, Localworks, Sustainabuilt, WR for Equity, Sustainable Wheat Ridge… just to name a few, that helped Mestizo get to this day. Muchisimas Gracias! 

Business Spotlight- XO Gifts

XO Gift Co. is so excited to be a part of the Wheat Ridge area community at Gold’s Marketplace. Owner, Kat Furr, had a gift shop on Tennyson Street in Berkeley for over 9 years and closed that location just after last Christmas. Having moved twice already on the street, the one new location seemed to be the answer. The shop opened just before Thanksgiving and has received a warm welcome from the local neighborhood. The excitement should continue as more great tenants continue to open up at Gold’s!

XO strives to carry 99% Made in the USA products, with about half of that being made locally in Colorado. With an emphasis on unique, handmade and upcycled products, they aim to have something for everyone and every occasion. Some of the wide variety of items include jewelry, tshirts, baby clothes, hats, glassware, tea towels, oven mitts, doormats, hot sauce, art, mugs, journals, bath products and much more! Jewelry made from skis, birdhouses made from Colorado license plates and 3D painted landscape collages are a few of the things that stand out as being unique. Kat believes that staying true to her own personal style when merchandising the store is what keeps it different from other places.

Check out the new shop at 10071 W 26th Ave if you haven’t already and see what XO Gift Co. has to offer for the loved ones in your life (that includes yourself!)! Afterall, Valentine’s Day is almost here!
