The company’s Marketing and Public Relations Manager, Noma Ndlovu, said the two day exhibition which started on Friday last week was meant to give a platform to individuals, companies and specialists in health, fitness and lifestyle-related fields to showcase and sell their products as well as services to the general public.

“The idea behind this new exhibition is to provide the general public with information on latest techniques, trends and tips for healthy living and expert advice on how to improve lifestyles. We intend to make the expo an annual event. The response from the public was overwhelming,” said Ndlovu.

Ndlovu said free demonstrations and presentations were delivered by health specialists.

“During the expo several health specialists presented papers on areas such as herbal Medicines in Preventative Health, Grooming and Etiquette, Chiropractic Health and Feminine Health Care,” said Ndlovu.

Elizabeth Sibanda, a field officer with the Zimbabwe National Network for People Living with HIV/AIDS hailed the expo as a success.

“A lot of people were inquiring about the traditional fruits and food which we were exhibiting at our stand. ZNNP+ encourages both HIV positive people and those who do not know their status to eat lots of traditional foods which have fewer chemicals and are organically grown.”

Sibanda has been HIV positive for the past 17 years and she has not been on antiretroviral therapy.

Another exhibitor, Jennifer Broughton, a consultant herbalist who specialises in immune modulators for HIV patients and natural therapies, also hailed the health expo.

“Good health and indigenous medicine play a critical role in our response to HIV and Aids. We marketed a lot of our herbs which can cure diseases such as Arthritis, Asthma, Back Relief, Toothache, Fungal infections and immune Boosters,” said Broughton.
