We Can Accomplish Amazing Things Together.
When faced with an illness or a health challenge, our current health care system offers many important treatments and medications, but this may not always be enough. Certainly, treatments and medications can be helpful and often necessary, but it can also lead to a sense of being stuck in a cycle of taking medications, partially suppressing symptoms, and creating side effects. This standard approach is to illness, may be necessary in some conditions, but is often incomplete.
The tools offered at Nurture Healing can help you focus on the things that you can do to enhance your own wellness.
Instead of just trying to get rid of an illness, it is time to focus on wellness.
When you focus on creating wellness, you find the conditions in your life that best serve healing, regeneration and renewal in the body. You become aware of all the ways you can contribute to the potential of health within your body and empowered to shift the way you live to align with greater health.
The Wellness Programs and Workshops focus on specific, realistic, and positive actions that can help you feel better through five pillars of wellness: mindfulness as medicine, food as medicine, relaxation as medicine, movement as medicine, and joy as medicine.
The Five Pillars of Wellness
Because feeling good is NOT just about luck, or genetics, or circumstances. What you do each and every day matters.
I really enjoyed the wellness training sessions.
Joanna has created an integrated, empowering course supported by extensive research and resources.
Dr. Garritano has provided me the means to realign myself so that I can get to a better state.
I can’t say enough about these classes.
Supporting your health and wellbeing takes commitment and a willingness to prioritize feeling better.
If you are ready and committed to your wellness, and you are looking for support that can help you make a significant impact; if you are ready to take charge of your healing process; if you are ready to have the peace of mind knowing that you are doing what is best for your body, mind and life; if you are tired of feeling helpless, overwhelmed, and dependent on others for relief of your symptoms; and if you are ready to feel better, to have more energy, more vitality, and more joy in your life, then join us!
These programs and materials are not right for you if you just want a quick fix.
For the majority of health problems we face today, there aren't any magic pills or one-step "fixes." Healing often requires whole systems approaches where wellness is actively created and the root causes of illness are discovered and addressed.
Wellness is a practice - a way of life.
One thing we know for sure is that the body is incredibly resilient. It can change and heal and often recover when given the proper conditions. Wellness is an active ongoing process. Wellness is about becoming educated, empowered, inspired, and ultimately, an active participant in creating your health. When you are committed to the practice of wellness in your life, you are giving yourself, and those you love, a true gift.
Bodies are designed to heal just like seeds are made to grow.
The tools shared in these programs can help you sow the seeds of wellness in your life and help to restore greater health in your body.
Though we cannot control everything that is (or isn't) going to happen in our bodies, we can certainly make a positive impact and tip the scales toward greater wellbeing. But we must first plant the seeds of wellness, give ourselves time to adjust, create habits that stick, and then allow wellness to grow over a period time.
Your body is not static. The body you have today is literally not the same body you had 6 months ago and it is going to be different 6 months from now. The trillions of cells in the human body are constantly moving and changing, dying and being born anew. Scientists estimate that, every week we replace the lining of our intestines; every month we shed and replace our entire skin, in just three months we make a whole tank of fresh blood, and every year we generate a mass of cells equal to our own body weight. Many cells in our bodies are literally remade anew each and every day.
