You know your health is important, but so is the relationship you have with the person in charge of overseeing your health: your doctor. At PALM Health, your physician wants to develop a beneficial partnership with you to help you get the most out of your medical appointments. What questions should you be asking your doctor about your health? What can you do to prepare for your annual preventive visit? In this webinar, nurse practitioner Amanda Peregrin will address questions such as these and provide practical tips to help you become an empowered patient.
In chaotic and turbulent times like these, it can be difficult to keep your bearings. This webinar with Dr. Kevin Cloninger, Director of Well-Being Coaching at PALM Health, will explore the importance of silence for well-being and discuss how to overcome the obstacles to taking time for yourself in the agitation of modern life.
Well-being is about having the inner resources to meet stress while being in the midst of it. PALM Health is pleased to offer virtual educational workshops to help individuals increase well-being and resilience to stress. Know Yourself Workshops are designed to help you improve your overall well-being and awareness. In this workshop, participants are introduced to the groundbreaking Know Yourself DVD curriculum, which offers tools, concepts and self-reflection exercises to help foster calmness, self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and mind-body health. The workshop takes place over three consecutive weeks, with a 90-minute virtual meeting each week. Each week the Anthropedia Certified Instructor leads workshop participants through the content, offering additional material and reflective exercises to enhance learning.
If you feel stiff and unstable in your daily activities, if you work out frequently but would like to expand your range of motion, or if you are completely brand-new to exercise, this sequence of stretching poses is for you.

Most of the things we do on a given day we do on autopilot. Rarely do we take the time to stop and ask ourselves why we do what we do. Studies have shown that it is precisely this process of growing in awareness of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that allows us to grow in freedom and happiness. Join Well-Being Coach Sarah Lewis for a discussion on the nature of thought, suggestions for becoming more aware of our thoughts, and recommendations for growing in well-being.
You’ve probably heard of acupuncture before, or even have some experience with it. You may have wondered, why are needles used? What do they do? Does it hurt? It may seem like an intimidating treatment at first glance, but the benefits of acupuncture and acupressure extend far beyond what you might think—and so does the science behind it.
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.

Have you ever wondered how our bodies process the chemicals found in our air, on our food, and in products in our homes? What happens when we are exposed to excessive amounts of these chemicals? In our modern, industrialized society, toxins are constantly surrounding us and creating an increased burden on our bodies’ natural detoxification pathways. We may notice these effects in our bodies over time with signs like decreased energy, brain fog, sluggish digestion, skin rashes, headaches, and other potential symptoms.
With increased exposure to pollutants, the human body is more challenged than ever before to sustain well-being. In this webinar, Dr. Emily Guilfoy, Wellness Therapies Lead, Chiropractor, and Acupuncturist at PALM Health, will explore ways to support the body’s natural detoxification pathways and how to incorporate these practices into your daily wellness routine.
