NORTH COUNTRY HOLISTIC CARE CENTER
Well we made it through a tough Winter! As our thoughts turn to Spring and the renewal it promises, let us also give attention to optimal wellness for ourselves, our friends and family and for the planet. The body has an amazing ability to heal itself if we give it a chance. Detoxification becomes important at this Season. Focus on vegetables that help to cleanse the liver such as the thistle vegetables, asparagus and artichoke and the dark green leafy vegetables such as kale, Swiss chard, arugula and dandelion greens. Get up and get moving - our bodies were meant to move. In Traditional Chinese Medicine all disease or injury is viewed as "stuck" energy - movement helps to mobilize the energy, eliminate toxins and get us "unstuck" in body,mind and spirit.
Our exciting and innovative new programs continue our commitment to achieving optimal health by relying on natural, non pharmaceutical therapies to help your body move toward balance and wellness.
At Last! A safe, effective way to manage the stress that impacts our health and robs us of our joy and quality of life.
Our Stress Relief Program works with biofeedback to help you learn to relax and break the cycle of damage caused by chronic stress. Our five week program will allow you to measure the effects of your current level of stress on your body and will teach you simple and highly effective techniques to respond in healthier ways to life's challenges. Call today to get started.
Immune Recovery Plan
Restore your Immune system with our leading edge program that evaluates and treats fatigued and damaged immune systems. There is an epidemic of autoimmune disease - Thyroid dysfunction, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Sjogrens disease, psoriasis, MS and arthritis to name just a few. Our program, using a functional medicine approach, gets to the root of the problem whether it be undiagnosed food sensitivities or allergies, toxins, chronic stress or a damaged digestive system. Using appropriate testing and using diagnostic and therapeutic interventions such as an elimination diet, determination of intestinal bacteria, yeast overgrowth syndrome, mercury or other heavy metal toxicity, we are able to help stop the ongoing damage and inflammation and restore appropriate immune function.
As our thoughts turn to our gardens and the beautiful, bountiful flower and vegetable gardens we are planning, be aware that unless you are choosing organic seeds and young plants, the flowers and vegetables in your garden may be toxic and fatal to bees, songbirds and monarch butterflies. Lowes, Walmart and Home Depot knowingly sell plants that have been treated with systemic pesticides called neonicotinoids (or neonics, for short). The seeds that these plants grow from are treated with the chemical and it is thus in every part of the plant, including the pollen. The insecticide acts as a neurotoxin (nervous system poison) and it causes fatal damage to the bee/bird/butterfly immune system. Even more amazing and outrageous, this pesticide is used routinely on food crops for human consumption, especially GMO (genetically modified) crops There is mounting evidence that this class of insecticides may be implicated in Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, ADHD and autism.
