Wellness is spreading on campus!

Hello Everyone!

I just wanted to share about the amazing panel we had Thursday night in the wellness center called “Sustainable Wellness.” Myself and my fellow classmates sat on a panel to talk about what sustainable wellness means to us and examples of what we do in our life.

For me, I had a hard time putting it into words because I feel as though I live my life to keep myself well. Whether it is watching what I eat or preventing a cold from getting worse, I live each day to consciously keep myself healthy. I shared a quote with the group because it summed up exactly what I was feeling...“Take care of your body because it’s the only place you have to live.”

We had a really amazing session with the students talking about their struggles with stress, healthy eating, time management, and their overall health. For all of you who were at this panel, please use this as your way to reach out to me about events you would like to see on campus. I am currently working on putting together two events before the end of the semester in regards to stress management. I will keep your posted on all of that.

Also, THIS WEEK we have 2 great events on campus.

Don’t forget TONIGHT we will have The Food Mood Connection in a new location. It is in A&S 165 at 5:30PM to 7:00PM. Learn how the food you eat affects your mood.


Tuesday night I will be showing an amazing movie called Food Matters! It is a personal favorite of mine and many of my classmates and I hope you can take the time out to see it. It talks about supplements, vitamins curing cancer, foods you should be eating to change your health, and how the food we eat makes up who we are and can actually be used as medicine!

Check out the trailer below.

Food Matters will be shown in the Little Theatre, Tuesday night at 6pm.

Hope to see all of you on campus this week!

CRAZY SEXY CANCER

 

Hello Everyone!!!

 

 

This upcoming Tuesday, October 25th will be a very PINK day on campus in honor of breast cancer awareness.

There will be events going on all day long so be sure to take part in something.

 

 

My background is in holistic health which is all about preventing disease, treating the whole person (not just the physical body), and using complementary and alternative medicine to aid in healing. Truthfully, when it comes to breast cancer awareness, my passion does not lie in painting the town pink or raising money for the cure. My passion lies in the prevention of breast cancer altogether.  I hope for a day that we will not need to walk, wear pink ribbons, or lose mothers, daughters, grandmothers, sisters, best friends, and loved ones to this terrible disease.

I hope you all will stop by the table I will be sitting at on Tuesday, October 25th to learn about what you can do to prevent breast cancer. We live in an extremely toxic world and the choices you make today have the power to prevent disease like breast cancer for you and those around you.

I will also be showing Crazy Sexy Cancer in the Little Theatre at 6pm. This movie is shown in some of the holistic health classes and Kris Carr has been seen on all sorts of media including Oprah. Kris Carr, a cancer “thriver,” is an amazing woman who feels more alive by her own cancer diagnosis than she ever was before she found herself sick. She calls her tumors her beauty marks and is quickly becoming a healing guru.

 

I was lucky enough to turn on the TV this morning to see Kris Carr on the Gayle King Show. She said how while she supports the push for early detection of cancer, she pushes the no cancer/zero detection push. Tuesday night after the movie we will also have a discussion about the movie with all who are willing to share. Crazy Sexy Cancer will be shown on OWN this Sunday for those who can’t make it to Tuesday’s screening.

 

 

I promise you this movie will make you laugh, cry, smile, and be amazed at the journey you go on. Most of you will read this and wonder how CRAZY and SEXY go with cancer. Make sure you come to see the movie Tuesday night to find out.
