I am aware that there is never enough time during appointments to give our patients all the information about what we do and what advice we can offer. With this in mind, I am starting a series of free monthly health talks to cover many of the common problems that patients suffer. These will include topics such as back pain and arthritis.
The talks will not be restricted to patients but will be open to anyone interested in finding out more about chiropractic and healthy living.
One aspect of chiropractic concerns the principle of helping the body to use its own natural healing mechanisms. With this in mind, these free monthly health talks will focus on providing evidence based information to enable you to make informed choices about your wellbeing.
Many of you are already aware of my passion for understanding more about the marketing myths around what we eat and what we should avoid in our environment.
There has been recent media coverage concerning saturated fat. It seems it may to be not so harmful afterall as some heart specialists are reporting that perhaps we should be eating more of this rather than polyunsaturated fats1.
Confusion and bewilderment is often what my patients express when we are discussing what foods to eat and what to avoid. Understanding how to read labels and cutting through the food marketing jargon can be a nightmare when trying to eat healthily.
The talks will provide an excellent opportunity to discuss what is really good for you and what is not so good. They are open to everyone but as space is limited in the upstairs studio, booking is required. Refreshments will be provided.
The first free monthly health talk will be on Thursday, 10 April 2014 at 1.30 pm in the upstairs studio at Hiltingbury Chiropractic. The subject is ‘Managing Arthritis’.
If you are interested please either email us on email@example.com or call 023 8027 3545 to book your place.
