Spring has Sprung!
Spring Into Health!
Springtime is upon us! It may not look or feel like it when you walk out of your door, but it is here and there is a bit of a buzz in the air. There is an expectation and an acceptance of renewal and newness that accompanies this season. We have no choice but to feel it as it surrounds us in the budding of trees and flowers. Today begins the Spring into Health Event at Flourish and Balance Integrative Medicine and I look forward to seeing you take advantage of the energy of this season and either starting fresh or starting again on your journey toward optimal health.
Spring (as a verb) describes action. There are a number of meanings depending on its use but a few of the definitions that catch my attention are: to move or jump suddenly or rapidly upward or forward; to originate or arise from, however, my favorite definition is to move quickly and suddenly toward a particular place or to a new condition. We are in the midst of a season dedicated to being in a different place. This can be physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually. I believe that it is never too late to begin, whatever that new beginning may be. As a Naturopathic physician, I believe this to be true about your health in particular. It is never too late to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Even if it means just improving your quality of life.
I often remind my patients of the amount of control that they actually have over their health. Outside of genetic factors, and these days, even with certain genetic predispositions, we have the power to effect great change in our health and lives. I think that embarking on the journey toward better health starts with investigation and requires commitment and consistency. One of the guiding principles of Naturopathic medicine is to treat the root cause. I complete a thorough investigation of an individuals health concerns addressing not only the physical aspect of the symptoms experienced but the psychological and emotional as well. In this way, both myself and my patients understand the connection between the mind and body and together, we develop a multi-pronged approach to their health concerns.
I encourage you to take advantage of this season of renewal and literally, spring into the next phase of your life with better health-on all levels. There is so much that Naturopathic medicine can offer to you on this journey. Schedule an appointment today so that we can get started!
