Head to Heal with Naturopathic Medicine
Winter Quarterly 2014

Healthy Holidays!

Happy winter solstice! Although we are still a few days away from the solstice it is has felt like winter has been setting down roots for a few weeks now, inevitable once the fluffy white stuff comes around, and so we will embrace the change and Head to Heal Wellness is brimming with news to welcome in the winter season!

Our new location, although still in the process of transformation, is coming together very nicely. We are waiting with great anticipation to meet our living wall, which is making its way to us from Solar Gardens, in the next few weeks. We also are thrilled to have the dynamic doula duo of Angie Evans and Karen Herriot teaching prenatal, couples and doula classes from our wellness hub (see Angie’s article for more information on dates and upcoming courses) and  we are very excited to have the positive and passionate Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, Matthew Norick, join us starting this January 2015! In addition to his practice Matthew will be bringing Community Acupuncture to our wellness space – fantastic!

Our intention, for Head to Heal Wellness, is to create a wellness space that supports health through the mind, body and spirit. And with that, our minds and spirits can be lifted by the photographic art of Peter Scoular whose exhibit is on display on the main floor of Head to Heal Wellness Centre. Come and meet Peter on Friday January 23rd, 2015 from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm – pop by 2706 13th Avenue for his photographic opening where we will have snacks and dainties and check out  Peter’s beautiful photos.

Head to Heal Wellness will host a movie night at the end of February, on Friday February 27, 2015 at 7:00 pm  – it will be a free event and the movie is called Origins.

This winter newsletter is dedicated to those of you who find you need a little down time in all the chutzpah of the holiday season! It is never understated the need to take time for yourself and try daily to seek out stillness in the hustle and bustle. Wishing you a wonderfully relaxing peaceful holiday season and a very healthy new year 2015!

Clementine Dipped Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt lil’ numbers

Mandnarins, clementines or tangerines are a delectable and easy treat this holiday season on their own. Each one provides half your daily intake of vitamin C and a good shot of antioxidants. For those of you that are wanting to kick it up a notch and have a little something salty sweet with their citrus here is a simple and delicious way to knock it out of the park!

Prep time: 10 minutes

Bone Broth Soup

Nothing beats a bone broth soup in the winter months. Homemade broth made with veggies and bones is much more nutrient dense than anything you could ever purchase at a grocery store. Bone broth is high in minerals such as calcium and magnesium and contains essential amino acids.

Health thrives with Meditation

For thousands of years, meditation has been used as a powerful technique to bring about a state of relaxation and calm – a counter action to the stream of constant brain and thought activity we automatically engage in.
