Naturopathic physician hosts seminar

Are you lacking the energy you need to live the life you want? Are you tired of feeling tired?

Are you lacking the energy you need to live the life you want? Are you tired of feeling tired?

Come and learn proven strategies to improve your sleep and unleash your inner vitality.

On Nov. 18 at 7 p.m., join naturopathic physician Dr. Deidre Macdonald at the Crown Isle clubhouse for an evening seminar entitled Abundant Energy, Naturally.

Dr. Macdonald will discuss the hidden causes of insomnia and fatigue.  She will share powerful methods to overcome them with naturopathic medicine.

This seminar is by donation and all proceeds will be donated to Plant a Book, an organization that funds a Kenyan orphanage and school.

Topics will include: how to reduce your stress and improve your sleep, important information regarding thyroid and hormonal disorders, foods that boost energy, foods that zap energy, how blood sugar crashes contribute to burn out, and more proven, safe methods to improve your energy and sleep naturally.

Sleep problems include difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, or waking feeling unrested. The naturopathic medical approach to sleep includes teaching specific skills and strategies to improve sleep and using safe, natural medicines to help regulate the nervous system and promote restful sleep.

Often, sleep can be improved by identifying and addressing factors that are disturbing sleep such as pain, urinary problems, sleep apnea and more. Extensive research has proven that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for insomnia works as well or better for insomnia than medication and is a far superior long term option.

Admission Monday is by donation to Plant a Book. For more information, contact Dr. Deidre Macdonald’s office at 250-897-0235 or check out www.getwellhere.com.
