The second installment in our winter-long Wellness Series takes place on Thursday, December 17th at 6pm. Presentations by alternative and holistic healthcare practitioners from our community are designed to empower and educate the medical professionals, healers and helpers in our community so that our community thrives as a whole.
Discussions for Part 2 in the Wellness Series will include Healing and Preventing Injuries with Suzie Newcome from Namaspa and Immune Support through Food as Medicine with Mära Kevan from Märacupunture.
Wondering why and how chronic injuries develop? Want to stay active while healing rather than aggravating injuries? Wondering what your best options are when pain prevents you from enjoying the sports you love?
Founder and co-owner of Namaspa Yoga, Suzie Newcome shares her knowledge and experience as a 500hr Senior yoga teacher and deep tissue massage therapist, to help you understand why injuries develop and what your best options are for prevention and healing.
Mother nature provides everything that we need to be healthy in the form of whole foods from plants and animals. Our blood sugar affects mood, mental clarity, sleep, energy, skin, digestion, weight, hormones and pain levels. What we put in, is truly what we get out! We can choose to make ourselves prone to sickness and disease by eating processed, chemical foods or we can thrive and heal by letting food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.
