Did you know you can train your brain to develop a skill much in the same way you can train your body to develop a skill? Think back to when you learned how to ride a bike. At first, it probably felt completely foreign to your body. But over time, the more you practiced, your body slowly became used to the feeling of pedaling, keeping your balance, directing the bike, and paying attention to your surroundings. You naturally developed the muscles, coordination, and rhythm needed to stay on the bike. Eventually, it became a habit. It’s actually a very similar process when you are teaching your brain to do something like getting calm, focusing, and regulating your emotions — you have to train it.
Join us in the Oak Room for a nutritious three-course meal from the PALM Café and a discussion from functional medicine physician Dr. Karrie Hohn. As we age, maintaining a consistently healthy weight can become increasingly challenging. Dr. Hohn will reveal some of the lesser-known factors associated with weight gain and address the reasons why weight maintenance can be such a challenge. She will provide tips to correct course if you’ve noticed your weight creeping up, tools you can use to manage your weight consistently in the long-term, and ways you can balance your lifestyle to give yourself the best chance of success.
We get it: making changes to your health habits can feel really overwhelming, especially if you’re just starting out. It’s true, there are a lot of components to managing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle: proper nutrition, regular exercise, stress management, treating underlying conditions, and staying motivated. While all of these components are important to bring to the table if you want to sustain a healthy lifestyle in the long run, there are plenty of ways you can start small and ease yourself into it.
Join us for an evening with Jillian Tedesco, founder and CEO of fit-flavors and Le Cordon Bleu certified chef. Jillian will tell her personal story of how Dr. Karrie Hohn and Ashley Kumar at PALM Health assisted in her healing, specifically through the Elimination Diet and figuring out the root cause of her symptoms. She will address how going through the protocol at PALM served as an inspiration for the anti-inflammatory menu items she developed at her own company, fit-flavors.

Have you ever had a persistent symptom that just won’t stop bugging you? Maybe you’re struggling with fatigue, or your gut is constantly irritated? The causes of symptoms like these are often hard to get to the bottom of — and believe it or not, sometimes they may be caused by a problem somewhere else in your body that you might think is unrelated. But how do you find the root cause and treat the problem?
Inhale, exhale. Sounds simple, right? If your chest rises and falls with your breath, there’s actually a better way to breathe: with your diaphragm. Diaphragmatic breathing increases how much oxygen gets into your blood, reduces blood pressure and heart rate, helps you relax, and improves muscle function during exercise to prevent injury and strain. Join Ashley Kumar, physical therapist and personal trainer, for an interactive seminar in the Oak Room to learn proper diaphragmatic breathing techniques that you can incorporate into your daily life and workouts.
Calling all runners: how do you optimize your running performance while staying healthy? Like any sport, running can take its toll on your body over time, especially if you have improper form, injuries, inadequate nutrition, and unsupportive gear. Whether you run one mile or ten, it’s important to make sure you are employing healthy running habits so you can get the most out of your workout.
Summer is here, and you know what that means: lots of heat and lots of sun! With high temperatures and more sun exposure, your body has to work extra hard to regulate its own functioning. That said, there are two big things you can (and should) do to help with that process: hydrate and replenish your body’s nutrients.
