We are entering a new season and with that we find inspiration, excitement, and a lot of things to do!
You know all too well that a healthy body will help you enjoy all these activities – as well as each and every day – to the fullest. So September and October are the perfect time to begin a new health regime.
Let’s start by simply eating more vegetables or trying yoga (pg. 1); by chewing your nutritional smoothies (pg. 15) or exercising to improve balance (pg. 4) and help reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (pg. 24); healing through water (pg. 22) or through song (pg.25); or learning about potential remedies for your migraines (pg. 12), autoimmune disorder (pg. 18) or sports injuries (pg. 21). These are just a few of the articles you’ll find in this issue of Desert Health.
One of the greatest compliments we’ve received from readers is their surprise at how much free information our health care practitioners provide in Desert Health. We take great pride in this. It is a shared mindset of all involved in our publication to better the health of our community by providing medical, natural, fitness, and wellness information and services.
In addition to reading about it, Desert Health also provides the opportunity to meet many of our practitioners through Desert Health Fairs at country clubs and community centers throughout the Valley. Last season we produced successful events at PGA WEST, Trilogy of La Quinta, and Toscana Country Club in Indian Wells. We also had a very active pavilion at the Humana Challenge.
These single day events are free to members (and/or the public) and provide hearing tests, eye exams, flu shots, B-12 shots, product samples, and/or blood pressure tests, and most importantly, the opportunity to meet many of the doctors and practitioners who provide the helpful information you find in our pages.
This season we would like to add three more clubs to our schedule. We are looking for clubs with active, participating members who value the benefits of health-related resources and information. If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity and presenting your club for consideration, please give me a call or email.
As always, we thank you for reading Desert Health and look forward to seeing you out and about this season!
