Join us in the Oak Room for a nutritious three-course meal from the PALM Café and a discussion from Dr. Kevin Cloninger, Director of Well-Being Coaching. The search for greater well-being, greater self-understanding, and greater health and happiness is as old as the hills. Wellness is much more than “self-care,” buying fitness trackers, or doing the latest fad diet, but in the current media environment it is hard to tell. In this presentation, Dr. Kevin Cloninger will look at a more expansive definition of, and approach to, wellness and what is actually needed to improve both mental and physical health. He will also discuss why there is perhaps nothing of greater importance than the search for well-being as we face the multiple overlapping crises of our times.
Why should you stretch? Your first thought may be, “to become more flexible.” Understandably, many people discount stretching for this reason, since it is not everyone’s goal to become more flexible. But stretching is one of the most important things you can do for your body's health and fitness.
Most of us know how to recover from a stressful day: we find ways to disconnect for the evening, spend time in quiet or with loved ones, or even perhaps get outside for a walk and fresh air. Letting your mind rest and process that stress allows you to come back ready to take on the next day. Interestingly enough, this kind of recovery doesn’t only apply to environmental stressors that affect your mental state. Physiologically, your body works the same way.
Are you tired all the time even though you get plenty of sleep? Do you crave salty foods? Do you have frequent body aches or digestive issues? If you experience these as well as a collection of other symptoms, you may have adrenal fatigue. In this live Zoom webinar, our PALM Health experts will address what adrenal fatigue is, which symptoms indicate adrenal fatigue, what treatment options are available, and which supplements may help heal the body.
If you are prone to fluid retention or if you experience swelling in your arms and legs, it could be a sign of poor lymphatic drainage. In this seminar, massage therapist Bronson Thorn will explain how lymphatic massages can help rid the body of toxins and restore balance to the lymph system, part of the body’s immune system that helps fight infection. Bronson will also highlight the benefits of using castor oil packs and demonstrate proper dry brushing techniques.
Are you finding it challenging to understand why you should develop a fitness routine or where to begin? In this seminar, personal trainers Katheryn Scauzzo and Andrew Tucker will provide motivation for individuals to start a new fitness routine and direction to develop a sound plan for implementing specific exercise goals.
In this Lunch and Learn, world-renowned psychiatrist Dr. C. Robert Cloninger, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Washington University in St. Louis and Director of the Anthropedia Institute, will describe how to recognize and cultivate personality traits that help us to live more healthy, satisfying, and meaningful lives. Using the Temperament and Character Inventory, which he developed, he will identify how the way we learned to adapt to life’s challenges and opportunities affects our physical, mental, and social well-being.
