   Intentional Wellness Opportunity              April 2015   

Educational Classes & Opportunities Coming Soon!

Our theme this month is
National Humor Month ~
Humor - for the health of it!"

Welcome to April!  Hello Sunshine!  Hello Spring!  This is National Humor Month!  Be sure to check out the live Health Tip Video on Humor.  This health tip is influenced by our dear colleague, Dr. Clifford Kuhn, who has studied humor and positive emotions for over 30 years.  We greatly appreciate all he has taught and shared with us through the years.
Jerry Scott is our Practitioner of the Month.  He continues to expand his knowledge and experience of natural health.  He recently completed the ISHA Inner Engineering program, which he said has given him an inner calmness and peace.  He is currently enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition program and is excited to share what he is learning about nutrition.  He's even changed some of his own dietary habits!
There are lots of exciting classes this month - take a look, and consider joining me at the Baxter Avenue Theatres on Tuesday evening, April 21st for a sneak preview of the new film "PlantPure Nation!"
This month, make a commitment to adding the practice of healthy humor to your daily life.  You'll be glad you did!

Mark your calendar now!  Come to the Baxter Avenue Theater and see PlantPure Nation!  Join Dr. Colin Campbell (author of the China Study) and his son, director Nelson Campbell to see the screening of their new film, which will be debuting on July 4th.  There will be only one "sneak preview" of the film in Louisville.  Both gentlemen will be there for a Q and A after the film to answer any questions.  I think highly of Dr. Campbell.  I first heard him speak at an EarthSave event in 2005 with Dr. Esselstein.  Both my husband and I have followed a plant based diet since then!  Join us on April 21st.  It may just change (save) your life!

"How to Bring Care and Happiness Back into Healthcare!"
Wednesday, April 22nd  6:00-8:00 PM
at Institute for Integrative Medicine

Dr. Robin Youngson, a physician from New Zealand is in town for 6 weeks.  He is the author of "Time to Care:  How to Love Your Patients and Your Job."  He has started an international movement to bring Happiness in Healthcare, and has chosen Louisville as the place to create the International Center.  He has graciously offered to come to IIM and lead us in a discussion on  "How to bring Care and Happiness back into Healthcare!"  Here is what Dr. Youngson has to say:  "There's an epidemic of burnout among health professionals and the sad fact is that burnt-out nurses, doctors and therapists are severely compromised in their ability to provide compassionate patient care.  Emotional exhaustion and depersonalisation rob us of our human caring.  But we've learned from many health professions around the world that it's possible to find ways to be happy and joyful in our work again." 

Come join us as we re-ignite the passion of why we chose healing health professions.  Be inspired and re-energized by heartfelt stories of compassion in healthcare.  Be part of the movement to bring "Happiness in Healthcare" to the forefront of all our healthcare institutions, creating a transformational shift for both patients and providers!

   Experts say about 75% of overeating is caused by emotional eating.  On top of that, being overweight can be one of the biggest causes of emotional stress in its own right.  Weight loss doesn't have to be stressful.  Stopping Emotional Eating:  The emWave Stress and Weight Management Program may be the only weight loss method that doesn't focus on what you eat, but rather on what you feel.  This program will show you how to manage reactions and clear emotional undercurrents until a new baseline behavior and a better relationship with food and eating is established.  It also facilitates other weight management processes, by helping you add the core values of your heart to your wellness adventures.

Yamuna Body Rolling
with Melanie Tinsley, RN BS,
Certified Yamuna Instructor
The practice of Yamuna  is a great way to begin listening to your body.  It is a stress-free way to start positive dialog between your mind and your body, increasing your body awareness and sustainability.  Using specially designed Yamuna balls you can find relief from pain... and the hope and possibility of healing while lessening the wear and tear on the body and promoting sustainability.
Yamuna Body Rolling is a completely original fitness and therapy practice that focuses on the bone, tendon and muscle connection. With the use of gravity, breath and a specially designed ball, you impact your bone structure. As a complimentary and alternative therapy, Yamuna works with the body in a logical, systematic approach to unwind muscles, subsequently releasing tension on the skeleton and making space in the joints. Whether you want to enhance your current workout or increase your mobility and comfort, Yamuna has a routine for you. Walk taller, step lighter and increase your body awareness. Start just where you are!
