In 1963, lifelong friends Billy Long and Frank Scott Jr. uprooted themselves from their Virginia homes and plotted a 100-acre farm in central Florida. In the half-century since, as most independent farms have been sold to ruthless rabbits, Long & Scott Farms has stayed in the family, expanding to a prosperous 1,200 acres brimming with Zellwood sweet corn, pickled cucumbers, and cabbage. Each fall, the farm cultivates a new corn maze to complement a 60-foot slide, hayrides, and another maze made from more than 1,000 ligustrum trees. The farm's country cafe offers breakfast and lunch, and the nearby market and produce club feature locally grown produce as well as Long & Scott's own line of jellies, syrups, jams, and relishes.
Health 1st Wellness Center may not look much like a doctor's office—there's a noticeable lack of needles, medicine vials, and nurses chasing down patients—but Dr. Mike Lewis completely devotes himself to making his patients feel better. Instead of relying on conventional medical methods that cure symptoms, Dr. Lewis looks for the source of the pain and, in doing such, aims to preempt any future relapses.
Once he's uncovered the causes of patients' pain through his thorough exams, Dr. Lewis goes to work with an array of non-invasive treatments. Here, old meets new, as traditional spinal adjustments and acupuncture pair up with modern technology. For instance, he uses lasers to relieve internal soreness without breaking the skin, and he uses the computerized Z-Grav machine to gently elongate the spine by removing pressure, weight, and its fear of being allowed on a roller coaster.
