Our purpose is to provide a safe haven of drug-free healing and health education to improve the quality and longevity of the lives of people in our community.
It’s May! A month many of us wait all year for. The sun is shining and the bugs are still at bay. Warm weather has us outside and more active. It might seem surprising then to find ourselves feeling a bit out of balance. From headaches and digestive issues to tension and irritability, the transition to spring can stir up symptoms throughout our bodies.
The good news is we have tools to respond. Acupuncture and Nutrition Response Testing both work to reduce symptoms and bring us back to balance. In particular, it’s a good time to pay attention to the liver because of its role in many functions in our bodies and its heightened vulnerability in the spring.
Talk to us about challenges you're experiencing and schedule an appointment so you can enjoy the season to its fullest.
With warmer days finally in the forecast, you may be feeling that burst of energy for spring cleaning. Spring is a great time to clean up your health habits, too!
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has lots of helpful resources for healthier eating - from meals on the go to snacking savvy:
For a "deep clean" this spring, we have full body detoxification available through IonCleanse Treatment. Winter weather can lead us to eat comfort foods higher in sugar and carbs. Detoxifying can clear out excess candida growth that sometimes comes as a result and can help with weight loss goals that often come with the shedding of winter layers. Whether for toxin clean up, allergy onset, or pain relief, detoxification can help you feel more balanced and energized for the spring activities you love.
