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.
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.
Does it feel increasingly difficult to maintain your weight as you age? If so, there may be a biochemical reason the number on the scale keeps creeping up. As we age, our bodies become much more susceptible to inflammation and less resistant to hormonal and environmental fluctuations.
Metabolic syndrome refers to a cluster of risk factors that includes increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol levels, which may increase your chance of developing serious health conditions. In this webinar, Dr. Karrie Hohn will discuss the root cause of diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular disease and how to treat the symptoms of metabolic syndrome to reduce your risk of developing further health conditions.
Your “gut” is more than just your stomach: it is actually a group of organs that starts with the mouth and ends with the colon. The health of this system has a profound impact on the overall health of your entire body. Join us for a webinar with nurse practitioner Sarah Bird, DNP, who will discuss the importance of maintaining excellent gut health and how you can influence your microbiome to improve your immune function, mood, and metabolism.
Well-being is about having the inner resources to meet stress while being in the midst of it. Our educational Know Yourself Workshops are designed to help you improve your overall well-being, awareness, and resilience to stress. In this virtual 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 (see times and dates below). Each week the Anthropedia Certified Instructor leads workshop participants through the content, offering additional material and reflective exercises to enhance learning.
There is a French saying, “c’est en forgeant qu’on devient forgeron,” which translates to “it is smithing that makes the smith,” or “it is in doing that we become.” Working towards meaningful goals is inherently transformative. Accomplishing personal goals improves our sense of purpose, self-efficacy, and satisfaction with life. In this webinar, well-being coach Sarah Lewis will teach you to formulate, set, and take action on your goals using the SMART method and concepts from Anthropedia’s Know Yourself workshops. This will be an interactive webinar: please have a notebook and writing utensil on hand.
