The wellness materials, programs and workshops offered at Nurture Healing are designed to help you optimize your wellness and support your body’s ability to heal.
This is about practicing wellness. When we acquire wellness skills and practice wellness in our lives, we can promote healing, regeneration and repair in our bodies. Certainly, there are times that we may need medications or treatments, but when we practice wellness we actively and intentionally bring greater health and wellness into our lives.
The Nurture Healing Wellness materials, programs and workshops focus on lifestyle techniques and skills that help to decrease inflammation, support cellular renewal, and alter the biochemistry in the body to enhance recovery, health and vitality.

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. Although a treatment based approach can be helpful and often necessary, this 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 to illness can often feel incomplete.
The tools offered at Nurture Healing can help you focus on those things that you can do to enhance wellness, recovery and renewal.
It's 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 Nurture Healing Wellness Materials, Programs and Workshops focus on specific, realistic, and positive actions that can help you feel better by using 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 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 information or 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 you can 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 find ways to help yourself feel better, to have more energy, more vitality, and more joy in your life, then learning and practicing wellness skills may be right for you!
The wellness 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." In addition to treating illness, healing often requires whole systems approaches where the conditions of wellness are actively cultivated. You are welcome to learn more about how to practice wellness in your life by receiving a free electronic copy of the Nurture Healing Wellness Handbook.
Wellness is a practice - a way of life.
The body is incredibly resilient. It can change and heal and often recover when given the proper conditions. Bringing greater wellness into your life 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.
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 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.
As you implement wellness tools and skills, you are actually giving yourself the opportunity to grow a healthier body from the inside out.
The Nurture Healing Wellness Materials, Programs, and Workshops can offer you tangible skills while giving you flexibility, guidance, and support.
The first step in achieving greater wellness is making a commitment to your wellbeing. Once you make a commitment, the seeds of health are planted and greater wellness can begin.
You can gain wellness skills in the personalized Nurture Healing Wellness Support Program, in Wellness Workshops or in Food as Medicine Workshops. Or if you are unable to make it to a live workshop or personal appointment, you are welcome to receive supportive information through the free Wellness Materials offered on this site.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Nurture Healing Wellness Programs are not a replacement for medical care. Instead, the Wellness Programs offer dynamic educational opportunities for individuals to receive detailed information and guidance about how to use wellness skills to create greater health and wellbeing in their lives. If you are facing a particular diagnosis or a health challenge, you should still receive appropriate medical treatment from your doctor or qualified health professional and implement any tools from the Nurture Healing programs under the guidance of your physician as necessary.
If you are unable to attend a live workshop or program, that shouldn't stop you from having tools and strategies that can help you improve your health.
