We are soon entering the Holiday Season and so I wanted to share a few things with you.
Holiday 30-Day Health Challenge. I am rolling out a video series starting today that is similar to the one I did last spring, but I will be covering some different topics and many related to the holiday season. The Spring Challenge was a fun series and a good way to connect a little. I will cover many topics and condense them into little bite size versions with a daily challenge. I invite you all to sign up to receive these daily videos. You can also share this with anyone you would like. It is a great way to spread the messages of health as we head into a generally stressful time of year (and compound that with COVID).
Also on the health challenge page accessible through the link above is a Holiday Survival Guide with some helpful tips that I hope you will enjoy to maintain your sanity as we close out 2020!
Virtual Visits: During this COVID surge that will likely only increase as we approach the holidays, we are transitioning to mostly phone or virtual visits. If you have an issue that absolutely requires an in-person visit, we will take precautions and try to make it work.
Updated Food Page on the Member Site: Check out the updated food page. There are many resources on there - including the video on the Microbiome Mash-up. Please check that out and I encourage you all to start doing the mash-up daily to help gut and immune health.
Brain Spotting: I have talked with many of you regarding brain spotting in the past. This is an eye movement therapy to help with a history of trauma. It has actually been found useful in most everyone, as we all have been exposed to various trauma's in our lives. If you are having trouble with heightened nervous system symptoms (palpitations, high heart rate, dizziness, depression, anxiety and more) or a history of trauma, I highly recommend checking into this therapy. I recently found a practitioner that does this locally both in person and zoom. Her contact information is: Alison Rusk. 320-429-8554. www.healwholehealth.net
We will be offering a free zoom call on Thursday December 3rd at 5:30pm where Alison will be available to tell us more about brain spotting and answer any questions you may have.

Virtual Member Gathering: I will be hosting another virtual gathering of members November 30 at 7:00 PM to answer questions and concerns common to all members. I will also be able to address questions related to the surge in COVID cases and can discuss what we are able to provide to members and their families. These gatherings are included in your membership and do not reduce your time bank.

As mentioned in the last member update, I am starting to host more virtual group visits.
For members who are new to the group visit concept:
Group visits are an excellent way to "stretch" your Time Bank as we address specific questions you have, and most questions will be applicable to everyone on the call. Group Visits vary in length depending on the number of members attending and generally last an hour or longer if 5 or more members are in the meeting. (Less if only 1 or 2 members are in the meeting) Your Time Bank will be reduced by 10 minutes when attending group visits.
The upcoming group visits are:
CIRS Group Visit - Wednesday December 2nd 5:30pm
Neuroinflammation Group Visit - Wednesday December 9th 5:30pm
Autoimmune Group Visit - Wednesday December 16th 5:30pm
You can register for these events on the EVENTS CALENDAR
Events Calendar Has Been Added to the Member Site!
You can register for the events mentioned in this email by using the above links or by visiting our new Event Calendar. Going forward, all Flourish events will be posted to the calendar.
Lab Draw Date: If anyone needs updated labs, our next lab draw date is November 30 starting at 5:00 PM. You can use the link below to get your name on the schedule for labs. Once you submit your request, we will get back to you with a specific time. Please let us know if the time we provide does not work for you and we will do our best to figure something out. We space lab draws 10 minutes apart to keep wait time minimal or non-existent.
To maintain social distancing, please remain in your vehicle when you arrive for your lab draw. One of us will come out to let you know when it is your turn.
Available Lab Draw dates will be added to the Events Calendar as they become available.
Whew! Another long member update! Thank you for taking the time to read this and I look forward to working with you to stay healthy and enjoy this blessed time of year!
