Naturopathic physician hosts information seminar

Naturopathic physician, Dr. Deidre Macdonald, is hosting an information seminar at Crown Isle Resort on Thursday.

Acute and chronic pain sufferers can come and learn about safe, natural treatments that help alleviate pain.

Naturopathic physician, Dr. Deidre Macdonald is hosting an information seminar at Crown Isle Resort on Thursday, June 27 from 7 to 8:15 p.m. She will discuss natural approaches to reducing inflammation in the body, including natural anti-inflammatory medicines and an exciting technology for promoting tissue healing and wound repair called low level laser therapy.

The seminar is by donation on behalf of Plant-A-Book International, which provides funding for an orphanage and school in a slum of Nairobi, Kenya. One hundred percent of funds raised will be put towards providing food, housing and education for some of the world’s most needy children.

Low level laser therapy is a safe, painless and highly effective treatment that speeds the healing of many back, joint, muscle and skin problems. Dramatic healing can be seen when laser light is applied to wounds such as diabetic leg ulcers, large bruises, burns and other stubborn wounds.

The same tissue healing can be felt for people suffering from arthritis, tendonitis, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, ligament issues, disc herniation, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, osteo and rheumatoid arthritis and post surgical recovery.

“When I started looking into this technology I was impressed that there have been 2,000 scientific studies done on it over 50 years,” notes Macdonald. “Excellent results are being achieved particularly with new breakthroughs in the technology. I am especially pleased that I can offer effective, lasting pain relief for arthritis sufferers.”

This seminar will also include important information about natural anti-inflammatory medicines and other natural methods of promoting tissue healing.

To pre-register for the seminar or to schedule a complimentary 15 minute consultation to find out if laser therapy is right for you, call 897-0235 or go to www.getwellhere.com. For more information about Plant-A-Book and the Kenyan orphanage they support, go to www.plantabook.org.
