Docere, or Doctor as Teacher, is one of the foundation tenets of naturopathic medicine, right there behind Vis Medicatrix Naturae, or the Healing Power of Nature (the Vis in PranaVis!). Docere is a vital part of PranaVis Medicine and who I am as a practitioner. You will always find me out in the community, sharing what I know and love.
In that light, I am excited to invite you to the first three PranaVis Medicineevents of 2016:
- All Things Bulk! Using whole foods is a crucial part of healing through nutrition, yet the bulk section at the grocery store can be intimidating. What do you do with all those bins?! Join me at the Tacoma Food Coop, Wednesday, January 20 5pm-8pm, for a free tour and discussion. You'll leave with renewed confidence and, of course, a handful of my favorite recipes.
- Open first to patients and friends, another yoga basics series. If I've recommended it to you (and I'm sure I have!) and you want a safe, small environment with a teacher you trust, here you go. Six weeks, upstairs in the cozy attic teaching space at Saravida Health and Wellness, Monday nights 6-7:15pm, beginning January 25 - February 29. Cost $72 (or $60 per person if you sign up with a friend). Please note: the space will only hold 6 people comfortably, I expect this to fill quickly.
- Paleo. Vegan. Pegan (yes, it's a thing!) Nutritarian. Blood Type. Mediterranean. There are so many diets out there, how in the world do you know what to eat these days?! If your best intentions for the New Year are already being tested, join me February 6, 2:30-4:30pm at Three Trees Yoga in Federal Way for a PranaVis Whole Health workshop on Sustainable Eating Strategies for Healthy Weight Management. As always, the first hour will be lecture, and the second hour a restorative, gentle practice suitable for even the newest beginner. Because how we eat is as important as what we eat. $35 in advance, $40 at the door.
And of course you can always find me in the clinic, seeing patients from 9:30-3:30 M-F. Please know that off hours and Saturday mornings are often available with enough advanced notice. I have decided to move ahead with insurance re-credentialing, as a solo practice, and have hired an integrated billing service - before long you can expect the seamless billing of insurance.
All the best in 2016.
