Eve Henderson at the One Stop Health Shop has been educating fellow citizens on the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle for the past seventeen years but the lifestyle of eating properly and using natural supplements and vitamins goes much further back for her. Henderson shared that as a child her Grandmother Amy - a Creek and Cherokee Native American - had a natural cure for almost anything that ails you, but one should be careful when advertising their condition because the cure could be almost as unpleasant as sickness.
While we can see that her history with natural supplements goes back to her childhood, Henderson shared that her own health was the driving force for her to become a certified Traditional Naturopath. Wikipedia defines the practice of Naturopathy as the belief in the body’s ability to heal itself through a special vital energy or force guiding bodily processes internally. Diagnosis and treatment concern primarily alternative therapies and natural methods that naturopaths claim promote the body’s natural ability to heal. Naturopaths focus on a holistic approach, often completely avoiding the use of surgery and drugs. Naturopaths aim to prevent illness through stress reduction and changes to diet and lifestyle.
David and Eve Henderson not being natives to the Clinton relocated to the area from Fort Smith where the two had worked for the Gerber 25 years and 20 years respectively. The Henderson’s had visited the area on vacation for years so when they had the opportunity to purchase the health food store that used to be located at the corner of Highway 65 and Shakerag Road from Anita Baugus and the move was made. With the purchase of the store it allowed Eve to follow her passion in natural remedies and allowed them to relocate to an area that they had only been able to vacation before. The Henderson’s would operate out of the old pharmacy building on Shakerag Road for their first 10 years until the five lane expansion on Highway 65 forced them to move to their current location at 140 Woodell Street next to Vandergriff Shoes.
Henderson takes pride in educating her customers on how to live healthy lifestyles from learning about how what you put into your body and eat can affect our health to stopping the cause of what ails us not just treating the problem. While Eve cannot prescribe anything, she educates her customers on helping removing toxins from their bodies through diet changes and the benefits of certain supplements, essential oils and vitamins. She stresses that taking quality supplements is key due to certain vitamins and supplements being synthetically produced or they simply do not absorb properly into your system to get the desired benefit. The One Stop Health Shop is your local destination for a wide array of vitamins, essential oils, supplements and organic and healthy foods. You can visit the shop Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
