Alexandra provides insight on how  service members and their families can:
– Take control of their own health
– Free themselves from depression, PTSD, and chronic pain

From micro to macro – if each individual is physically and emotionally strong, vital, and energetic, the entire military will be too.  This creates Tomorrow’s Power for our nation.
