Sedona Wellness introduces SWAMMI.ORG & the Elmer J. Schettler Scholarship Foundation.
The Elmer J. Schettler Foundations was established in 2016 in memory of our beloved family member and friend, Elmer. He was dedicated to natural wellness, and shared our love of Ayurveda. Elmer is often remembered dearly for “paying it forward”. Although he far exceeded the prescribed prognosis, Elmer’s valiant fight with an insidious and rare form of cancer came to a rest in October of 2015.
