Coming soon, advanced Medical Qigong study and an Advanced Shiatsu Certification program!
We hope your Labor day weekend is relaxing and fulfilling.  We are also basking in the fruits of our "labors", as we are all very lucky to have such great clinical successes with the modalities offered at the clinic.  Plus, the garden around the reflexology path is doing great!   
This newsletter focuses on cold and illness prevention as we prepare for fall.  Prevent the winter blues before they come on with appropriate supplementation and adequate qi movement through Qigong, meditative techniques such as the DNA activation workshop, Cobblestone walking, or bodywork and acupuncture.

Bio-Immunozyme Forte
Biotic's solution to warding off colds and flus.
Bio-Immunizime Forte
Bio-Immunozyme Forte™ is a unique, broad-spectrum formula which may be used in lieu of a general multiple vitamin. It consists of a variety of nutrients and factors which support immune function like Vitamin C, and bioflavonoids.  Also included is Neonatal Thymus gland concentrate which is one of many nutritive elements which support neutrophil production and cell mediated immunity.  Zinc, an essential cofactor for over 70 enzymes, is of vital importance for the highly proliferating cells of the immune system, particularly monocyte and macrophage function, as well as affecting the number and activity of neutrophil granulocytes and natural killer (NK) cells. Vitamin A maintains a distinct action on cellular immunity.  In addition to its role in the support of mucosal surfaces, it also aids in maintaining lymphatic tissues, and in antibody production, particularly that of secretory IgA. Another antioxidant with marked effect on immuno-activity is vitamin E, which in addition to its protective effects on gastric mucosa, has been shown to improve immune responsiveness, as evidenced by a decrease in lipid-peroxidation, ie. PGE2. Other ingredients in Bio-Immunozyme Forte™ include: L-Lysine, Echinacea, Capsicum annum, Chlorophyllins, methyl donors and Lactobacillus acidophilus (DDS-1).

We recommend taking Bio-Immunozyme Forte when you feel the beginnings of the cold.   As many know, we are most susceptible to catching a cold when we are overworked and under-rested.  Bio-Immunozyme Forte provides glandular support to replenish us.  Take it with the Chinese formula Yin Qiao San!
Activate your DNA for Health and Happiness
A workshop with Lindy Ferrigno, CI (AOBTA), ABT Dipl. NCCAOM, LMT on 9/20

  Lindy's DNA poster

In this workshop, Lindy will give you information about the physical DNA and its virtual counterparts.  She will then guide you into Beta and Theta brainwave states from which you will learn to command the activation of your DNA's potential on all levels of being.  This process may be done sitting in chairs or lying down.  Therefore, we invite all levels of mobility and flexibility to participate.
DNA holds the Divine Blueprint of perfection within us.  It monitors and manages the growth, repair, rejuvenation and termination of every cell in the body.  It is the regulator and timekeeper of each cell's biological clock.  DNA Activation returns purity and health to every cell in your body.
