AMERICAN CANYON — Doctors may treat the sick, but organizers of a health fair in American Canyon hoped to help visitors live well enough to avoid the doctor’s office in the first place.

From heart rate tests to natural remedies, chiropractic to cooking demonstrations and even free bicycle repairs, a smorgasbord of healthy living practices were on display Sunday afternoon during the fourth annual American Canyon Health Expo. More than 420 visitors converged on American Canyon High School to partake of the wellness, exercise and diet lessons of the event, which is organized by New Life Community Adventist Church.

For the Health Expo’s planners, the various booths were focused on one main goal: to give Napa County residents a better chance to duck high rates of diabetes, cancer, heart disease and other lifestyle-related maladies.
