The Health Museum Presents Body Worlds RX

This year I am on a journey of self discovery and renew.  I am guilty of self neglect.  It is so easy to forget about yourself when you are running around taking care of everyone else.  Life should not get in the way of self preservation, self care, or self love.
Thanks to the Health Museum for a preview invitation.  All opinions stated are my own based on my personal opinion.

How well do you take care of your one body?  Have you ever wondered what your heart looks like?
How big is your heart?  And I don't mean, how nice are you?  Do you suffer from an enlarged heart?  Do you know your family history?  All of these questions ran through my head.  A real reality check to face and see how our organs are affected.  Seeing them from the inside out.
Body Worlds RX was created by anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens.  She is the inventor of Plastination science.  The exhibit features Plastination, a complex technique that removes the fluids from the body and replaces them with plastics that harden.

This exhibit really woke me up.  I need to take better care of my body.  I need to learn more about my family history and make better choices.  This exhibit was like a fun Science class that showed you how the body really works. 
Prescriptions for Healthy Living on exhibit now until April 23, 2017.

Body Worlds RX is included in the cost of your general admission ticket purchase.
