- "Natural Strategies for Chemical Detox"
Workshop at the Center for Health and Healing -- Saturday, June 9th, 2017
In our modern world we are often exposed to many harmful chemicals. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent and reduce this “body burden” so health is restored and symptoms resolve. This class will cover commonly encountered environmental chemicals, such as toxic metals, household cleaners and pesticides. Learn about their sources, effects on health, and how you can “Go Green” and eliminate or minimize exposure. We will focus on both home-based and more supervised clinical strategies for doing a natural cleansing detox that optimizes a healthier, more vibrant and toxin-free life.

- "Ecotherapy: How Environmental Connection is Good for You"
Free talk at Leonard Park Tea House, Mount Kisco, NY -- Saturday June 2nd
We all know how good it can feel to get outside. But did you know that regular “Nature Time” is quickly becoming an acknowledged healthcare intervention? Studies are showing that the more time you spend connecting with the natural world around you, the better it is for your health, including your blood pressure, digestion, immune system, sleep and stress.
The practice of “ecotherapy” helps you notice the absence of nature in your life, and identify ways that you can incorporate more of the therapeutic and restorative value of a deeper connection with the natural world into your life. More than just helping you “feel good”, this process grounds and harmonizes you in ways that can be measured, bringing health and healing to your body and mind.
This interactive presentation will share some of the evidence that prove just how true “Nature is Good for You”really is. You’ll learn about some amazing programs
designed to get the most out of a healthy outdoor experience, gain techniques to help you maximize the benefits of the natural world all around you, and leave
having gotten much more than just a ‘walk in the park!”
