Your health is the most precious asset you have.

She will be presenting a seminar entitled “The Seven Habits of Healthy Aging” on Thursday, July 4 at 7 p.m. at the Crown Isle clubhouse.

Admission is by donation and 100 per cent of the proceeds will be donated to the Comox Valley Transition Society (CVTS). A fire destroyed its main thrift store and this fundraiser will help the CVTS to continue to provide services for women who have experienced abuse in relationships and for their children. This seminar will be an exploration of the most important principles of health optimization. The latest research on how to enhance longevity and prevent disease will be discussed.

Learn how you can take stock of your current health and make optimal lifestyle and medical choices for your future. For instance, did you know that 50 per cent of people who have heart attacks and strokes don’t have high cholesterol and that there are other lab tests that can help predict your cardiovascular risk? Did you know clinical studies have shown that exercise is a more effective anti-depressant than Prozac? This seminar will arm you with the information you need to take charge of your health with safe, common sense lifestyle practices and natural medicine.

Topics will include: secrets of the longest living peoples, solutions for arthritic and back pain, the latest research on lab tests, foods that improve your energy and immune system, how to optimize your digestion to get the most out of your food, keys to cancer and heart disease prevention, stress management tools and much more!

Naturopathic physicians are licensed primary care physicians and provide full diagnostic workups and focus on health enhancement using a philosophy of lifestyle first, natural medicine second and pharmaceutical medicine third. They typically have eight years of university training.

Come on out to Crown Isle on Thursday, July 4 at 7 p.m. to learn ways to take charge of your health. Admission is by donation. For more information or to reserve a seat, contact Dr. Macdonald’s office at 250-897-0235 or via
