Nurturing Your Emotional Well-Being While "Social Distancing"

As you tend to your body and support your immune systems, please make sure you’re also nurturing your emotional health.  With more time at home we don’t want to underestimate the importance of taking care of our own mental and emotional well-being.   You would not be alone if during this unique time you found yourself feeling all sorts of emotions that may or may not be typical for you.   Some feel grateful for time off, others feel anxious; some find themselves impatient with family, and naturally many feel concerned.   It’s all so understandable given what we are living through right now.   Many people don’t have their jobs and commute to occupy their time and the increased family time is an adjustment.  Even my dog looked at me the other day as if to say “When are you leaving … I need my nap.”

Your immune system is designed to protect you from illness every day, but it can become overwhelmed during the winter cold and flu season. It can also be weakened due to environmental factors such as poor sleep, diet, and stress. There are lots of quality oral supplements that can support the immune system, but your body doesn’t fully absorb this type of supplement since they must first be processed by your digestive system. You can strengthen your immune system with an IV vitamin drip specifically designed with the vitamins, mineral and nutrients that support your immune health. 100% of the nutrients are absorbed into the body so they can work immediately at the cellular level.

Powerful Benefits of Putting Your Feet in the Dirt!

Oct 10, 2019 11:28:12 AM / by Sarah Leach, LaC posted in Wellness, grounding, spa

E A R T H I N G —also called Grounding— is all about energetically connecting with Mother Earth. This, of course, is amazing on a soul/spiritual level but there’s also a more scientific angle to the practice. To put it briefly, when your bare feet (where your largest pours are) or skin comes in contact with the earth, free electrons are taken up into the body.  These electrons could be referred to as nature’s biggest antioxidants and help neutralize damaging excess free radicals that can lead to inflammation and disease in the body. The earth has an infinite supply of free electrons, so when a person is grounded, those electrons naturally flow between the earth and the body, reducing free radicals and eliminating any static electrical charge.

Recently I’ve discovered float tank therapy as .
