As the school year kicks back into gear so should the healthy habits that you and your children have before practiced. Notice how I said “practiced,” because we all know during the summer-vacation months we tend to indulge a little. Maybe you have had one too many backyard barbecues, or three too many trips to the favorite ice cream shop down the street. Whatever your summer vice may be don’t worry about it, you can regain those healthy habits from before and introduce them into your children’s lives! continue reading
In addition to using acupuncture and other forms of traditional Chinese medicine, there are other ways athletes seek to up their game. One of the simplest ways to increase performance is by watching what you are consuming. You ever heard the saying you are what you eat? Chances are you have, if not, well I am glad that now you have, because there could not be a truer statement. continue reading
A study published by the JAMA Internal Medicine found that more than 70 percent of Americans consume more than the recommended daily amount of sugar. Sadly, most of us are addicted to sugar, which happens to be hidden in most of the foods and drinks we consume. Added sugar can cause a whole array of problems that can be short term as well as long term. If you are experiencing health problems, lowering your sugar intake may be one of your best options. Below are 10 truths about the ugly side of sweets. continue reading
Quit the tobacco, and don’t start if you haven’t already
It should be common sense now that smoking or chewing tobacco can lead to multiple types of cancer. If you are trying to quit, you are not alone. Try joining a support group or making a plan for yourself to set goals for quitting. Facing addiction is hard, but not using tobacco can save years of your life.
A healthy, well-rounded diet can do wonders for lowering your risk of cancer and overall wellbeing. Cut out processed sugar and instead focus on whole foods such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Salmon is full of omega-3 fatty acids that have been shown to help fight cancer. Other fish that can help reduce the risk of endometrial cancer in women include halibut, sardines and tuna. continue reading
Get rid of leftovers
The holidays bring delicious homemade food, and along with that come the leftovers. Holiday leftovers can be just as good as when you cook the meal the first time and become a tempting go-to snack. Time to let go. Toss the leftovers, they most likely aren’t the healthiest dishes and it’s time to start fresh.
Most Americans do not drink enough water, and there is no better time to start than now! Fill up your glass at least 8 times a day. Some find it easier to carry a water bottle throughout the day to remind yourself to keep hydrated. Staying hydrated can flush out toxins and detox your body, as well as keeping you feeling good. continue reading
We’ve always the heard the saying to enjoy everything in moderation, and that is definitely true when it comes to holiday foods. Don’t try to deprive yourself during the holidays, it most likely won’t go over well. Having an extra holiday treat here and there won’t kill you. You’re allowed to indulge a bit, just keep portions small when it comes to holiday desserts and make sure you limit how often you eat them. Going the whole season without any treats is cruel and will most likely end in binging later, so have your guilty pleasures, just keep them in moderation. continue reading
with Kathy McNeely, MS, CNS, LDN
Nutritionist & Health Coach
This fall Center Point Healing will offer a 2-day detox workshop series exploring the health benefits of detoxification. Participants will receive all they need to prepare and carryout a successful seven-day cleanse and will be supported in their own detox experience by Kathy McNeely, a licensed nutritionist.
1- Introductory Workshop: Thursday, septmber 24 at 7:30 pm at Center Point Healing
The first workshop takes place 2 days before the detox begins; it will highlight the specific health benefits of detoxing as well as prepare participants for what they might expect. Participants will be fully prepared with a detox protocol, shopping list, recipes and self-care tips for their own detox.
Many of the above materials will be sent to the participant 6 days before the detox begins via a password-protected website. Participants are encouraged to use the six days before the detox to stock their home with whole foods and other detox supplies and to reduce their sugar and caffeine intake (doing so will minimize strong reactions your body may have during the detox).
2- Teleconference:Sunday, September 27 at 7:30 pm
Participants will have the option to check in via telephone to discuss their first two detox days.
3- Final Meeting Thursday, October 1 at 7:30 pmat Center Point Healing
This meeting will serve as a second check-in and will prepare participants to end the detox. Participants will learn more about the changes their bodies and minds will have gone through during the detox, and will receive tips and advice on how to reintroduce foods, tools for observing body reactions, guidelines for how and when do their own future detox, and suggestions on how to continue eating “clean.”
Email support: Participants will receive email communications from Kathy throughout the week of preparation and detox including messages of encouragement, recipes, ideas for self-care, journaling tools or tips to help increase awareness and get the most from the detox.
Connection & Sharing: A Facebook page will be created for participants to share struggles, support, ideas, discoveries and recipes. Participation in this group is optional, and it will be moderated by Kathy McNeely to help with questions and concerns that arise during the detox.
COST: $65 per person

“My body is talking to me differently and I’m listening. It feels good!

With autumn approaching and the beginning of the yin cycle, the energy of plants is moving down into their roots, helping the body become aware of the energy of the season. This season is a time for the body to begin gathering energy for the colder months to come.
The lungs and large intestine are the organs associated with fall. The lungs are responsible for the circulation of Qi (the body’s natural flow and circulation), and are also very susceptible to cold and illness. For this reason, it is important to stay healthy and warm during the season. If the Qi circulation is weakened, muscles will not be able to warm the body properly. continue reading
