DurhamVeg Vegan Festival
DurhamVeg Vegan Festival acknowledged the growing trend of plant-based and vegan products. The festival was a big success with the vegetarian-friendly community and featured different types of delicious foods and desserts, as well as cooking demos and a great source of information. The goal of DurhamVeg was to create awareness and interest for region-wide residents in learning about veganism and the health benefits of such a diet. It promotes health, compassion for animals and consciousness about the environmental impact of our food choices.

As featured in BioClarity's article on "Best Acne Fighting Tips".
"For patients struggling with acne I recommend consistent hygiene practices using a gentle natural cleanser followed by a small amount of tea tree oil and coconut oil applied topically to the problem area. Both tea tree oil and coconut oil are antimicrobial. I also recommend pillow cases be changed regularly and that patients drink at least 2 liters of water daily. A key part of treating any skin condition, including acne, is that skin is often a reflection of something going on inside our bodies. There are only so many ways toxins can be eliminated from the body, with the skin being our largest organ—it often becomes a source of elimination. It is important to assess for adequate nutrition, sources of inflammation, food allergies or sensitivities, stress, and to ensure that the body’s sources of detoxifying and eliminating are functioning optimally."
