Gratitude for being well

With a theme of “Mahalo, Gratitude and Appreciation,” the 11th annual Kauai Wellness Expo opened its doors to a variety of information and exhibits at the Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall.

“I had a scratchy throat and I am due to be a speaker,” said Patricia May on Saturday, taking in the help of Eva Cariffe of the Twin Design Shop in Eleele in utilizing a Tibetan hand-hammered bowl to alleviate her ailment.

“This year’s theme highlights the importance of being thankful for all we are blessed with,” said Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. “When you focus on gratitude, it actually brings more joy and laughter into your life.”

Comic Frank DeLima, described as one of Hawaii’s best living legends — laughter is wellness — headlined the event Saturday with a special performance at the event hosted by the Kauai Health and Wellness Association.
