Event Creator Battled Chronic Health Challenges
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- If Sally Gilbert seems a little enthusiastic, she's okay with that.
Gilbert, the creator of the Anti-Aging Expo & Symposium, remembers another life -- one stifled by fatigue and chronic illness.
Now as energetic as ever, Gilbert is sharing her path to wellness with others.
The Anti-Aging Expo & Symposium is geared toward health-conscious consumers eager to enhance their lives through better nutrition, fitness and personal development services.
The event will feature national health experts and offer health-minded consumers a guide to living well.
"There are exciting options today for anyone who desires vibrant, healthy living," says Gilbert. "There's information out there, but it's not very well organized. It can be confusing for someone seeking a path to wellness."
The Booming Health & Wellness Market
Consumer interest in food, products and services geared toward wellness is higher than ever. The natural health and personal growth market has exploded into a $230 billion per year industry, Gilbert says.
The number of people age 45 and above has increased 39% in this decade alone, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.
That group has tremendous buying power, is increasingly well educated, and places a premium on delaying and preventing the effects of aging, Gilbert says.
With its appeal to those eager consumers, the Anti-Aging Expo & Symposium is a natural fit for wellness providers seeking targeted marketing in a slow economy.
Out of Desperation, a Vision of Empowerment
A single mother working in corporate America, Gilbert has battled debilitating allergies, fibromyalgia, peripheral neuropathy and a host of other health problems. At one point, she could barely make it through an 8-hour workday.
"I was desperate for solutions," she says. "I wasn't living -- I was barely existing. And worst of all, my kids suffered because I couldn't function at a reasonable level."
The Anti-Aging Expo & Symposium, which takes place in Charlotte next March, is Gilbert's way of sharing the wellness solutions that restored her vitality.
"I'm a living testament to self-empowerment," Gilbert says. "I want the Anti-Aging Expo to help others find solutions to their wellness challenges."
