Mid-March 2016
Welcome to March! National Nutrition Month!
One of my favorite times of the year - the weather warming, the trees and flowers blooming, the birds have returned and evidence of new life is everywhere! 
If you are sensitive to allergies this time of year, you may need to stock up on your D-hist, which is a wonderful natural antihistamine that won't leave you feeling drugged or groggy.  See the bonus Health Tip for more information about D-hist.

Our theme this month is:  " Organic Food - It Does a Body Good!  Eat Clean for National Nutrition Month!"  See the Health Tip this month to learn more about why Organic foods are so beneficial for you.  And check out a link to farmer Paul Izak's song about eating clean in the Community Events section!

Betty Greaver is our Practitioner of the Month Having completed her certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, she has lots of great information to share!  Check with Betty for her special offerings this month: 502.295.6251.

There's a new opportunity coming up in April - so many of you are asking questions about the APO E gene testing, Hormone challenges, and Gastro-intestinal issues... We are beginning Initial Consultation Group Sessions for each of these topics... An initial consultation will be held with a small group of clients all interested in the same path, and then all follow-up appointments will be individual.  If this works for you, there is even a cost savings for your initial session!  Call for more information! 502.253.4554

Also, April 14th is the date of our next Vasolab C-IMT testing at IIM.  Easy and painless...without risk or side effects, measuring the C-IMT allows us to take a literal snapshot of a person's vascular health... and can detect the early stages of heart disease, even in teenagers.  Call for your 15-minute appointment at IIM:  502.253.4554

Enjoy March!  Commit this month to eat all organic foods and just see if you notice a difference in how your body feels and your mind works.  Join in some of our many classes!  Happy Easter!  Happy Spring!
~ Love, Kim

Here's An Additional IIM Health Tip of The Month:
IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN ...ALLERGY SEASON!


It's that time of year again!!  Allergy season. 

Are you one of those that runs as far away as you can from blooming trees and flowers due to hay fever?  The beauty of early spring can be overshadowed by the misery of allergic rhinitis (hay fever) if you are reactive to pollens from trees, grasses, weeds and perennial spring flowers.



*  First, understand that 70-75% of your immune system is in your gastro-intestinal tract.  A good probiotic can rebuild and restore healthy microbiota in the GI tract, which may make you less reactive to pollens.
*  Limit (better yet - avoid) dairy products, which are mucolytic by nature.
*  If you still develop hay fever symptoms, we suggest a great product by Orthomolecular called D-hist.  This supplement has Bromelain, Quercitin, Vitamin C, Stinging Nettles and NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine), which work very well to minimize the symptoms of hay fever.  Several patients that I've worked with have had such great success with D-hist, that they were able to stop their allergy shots.                                                     

 
Give us a call if you start that familiar sneezing this spring!

What is C-IMT?
C-IMT or Carotid-Intima Media Thickness assessment is an easy and painless procedure now available to you.  C-IMT is without risk or side effects and is more predictive than any other screening available.  For decades ultrasound has helped physicians "see" developments and problems inside people's bodies.  Combining ultrasound images with recent computer software advancements, we can measure and analyze critical regions inside our blood vessels like never before.  Measuring the C-IMT allows us to take a literal snapshot of a person's vascular health.  This analysis is sophisticated enough to assess your individual risk.  It can detect the early stages of heart disease, even in teenagers.

Now you can take a proactive approach and be screened for cardiovascular abnormalities quickly, conveniently and inexpensively.  If detected early, Cardiovascular disease can be prevented.

Make your health a priority.  $165 includes consult with Kim Evans.  FSA/HSA eligible expenses.  Schedule your visit for Thursday, April 14th!

"Greetings!  Happy Spring, almost!  I love March for many reasons... I love the promise of spring.  I love the breeze and the wind.  I love seeing new growth and color.  And it's my birthday month!"

Collaborative Practitioner at IIM...After graduating from Spalding University with my RN, BSN, I worked in many areas of nursing including CCU, Pulmonary Rehab, and as a Certified Rehab Nurse at Frazier Rehab for over 20 years.  I have been blessed to be part of the Institute for Integrative Medicine since 11/11/11.  It is such an honor and a privilege to work with so many like-minded individuals.  In this supportive and collaborative "home", I continue to pursue my holistic nursing, health coach, and massage therapy practices.

Current focus:  My focus for my career and education is on detoxification for body, mind and spirit.  I have enjoyed teaching meditation for KyOne Health patients in their Healthy Lifestyle Centers and for my own private clients.  As a Breast Health Advocate, much emphasis is placed on detoxification for the body.  As a Health Coach, emphasis is on clean, real food for detoxification.  I continue to do massage, and I am currently a student practitioner of Healing Touch for detoxification of the body.  I am passionate about helping others lead a better, cleaner life, decreasing risks of chronic disease and increasing compassion and peace.

Nutrition Health Coach & Educator... I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in July of 2013.  I'm enjoying being a health coach, with many of my clients wanting information on gluten-free and food intolerance challenges.  Being a Nutrition Health Coach is an exciting way for me to express my passion for helping people.  Feel free to contact me this month ~ we'll explore your health and nutrition!  502.295.6251

Meet John Malloy:  "As an executive at one of the leading utilities in the nation, I came to yoga many years ago to escape the busyness and noise of this world to seek a more spiritual and grounded life.  Yoga brings together the mind, body, and spirit, thus a more integrative wellness way of life.  Now in my 50's, yoga continues to be a vital part of my life providing universal healing and elimination of discomfort.  In my yogic years, I have found an inner peace that ultimately led me to becoming a yoga instructor.  As an educator by nature, teaching yoga allows me to pass on this stillness of the mind to those seeking a higher and thus better quality of life.  Through yoga we can all strive to be in this world, but not of this world!  I encourage you to step out of your noisy world and onto a yoga mat!  Namaste!"

Savor the Flavor of Eating Right ~
March - National Nutrition Month 2016
Sponsored by the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics

National Nutrition Month is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics.  The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices, and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.

The theme for 2016 - "Savor the Flavor of Eating Right" - encourages everyone to take time to enjoy food traditions and appreciate the pleasures, great flavors and social experiences food can add to our lives.  How, when, why and where we eat are just as important as what we eat.  Developing a mindful eating pattern that includes nutritious and flavorful foods - that's the best way to savor the flavor of eating right!
