Summer Detox for the Busy! There’s Still Time.

Summer Detoxification with Dr. Judith Ancheta, Naturopathic Doctor

What Your Community Naturopathic Doctor Has Been Up to This Summer!

It has been a terrific summer full of learning (and teaching!) in the naturopathic trenches here at the Richmond Hill and Markham Clinics.  This past summer has been filled with attending various events which you may have seen us at, some of which included being at our local LA Fitness Vaughan Gym and Health Club, at the Canada Day Celebrations at our local Richmond Green Park, participating in On Richmond Hill Community meetings at the Richmond Hill Centre for Performing Arts, in and around the aisles of Loblaws Markham with the community registered dietician participating in the Diabetes Workshop for patients of the Markham Family Health Team and attending this upcoming weekend’s Maplefest Festival 2013 at the Maple Community Centre.

With all these terrific events supporting a healthy community, the highlight of it all has been the one-on-one mentorship that has been taking place with a fury through educational partnerships with the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine Preceptor Programme, which trains delightful Naturopathic Medical Interns in our community clinic setting who are preparing for practice and also working with the York District Catholic School Board High School Co-Operative Education Programme Students.  It has been an inspiring summer, with evidence that the best is still yet to come with our quickly approaching Fall season.  Stay tuned and see you in and around our lively community!

For the Health of our Children and our Communities

A special thank you to lovely teacher Wendy Vaiopoulos for inviting me to attend the Children’s Wellness Expo 2012 at the Varley Art Gallery in Unionville.  Candid pictures were taken by talented photographer, Craig Richardson which you can see here.  Cheers to the health of our community!

You Are Cordially Invited to Attend the Children’s Wellness Expo 2012!

Children’s Wellness Expo is this Saturday, June 16, 2012!

This event is to raise awareness of the products and services available in our community that promote the health and wellness of children and their families.  The founder, Wendy Vaiopoulos is a lovely Ontario teacher who is passionate about supporting our children’s academic growth.  She is also passionate about connecting children and their families with professionals in our community who are committed to providing holistic services for health and wellness.  I am very excited to be invited to this community event at the Varley Art Gallery in Unionville, Ontario.

In addition to this event, Wendy is generously donating her hair and raising money for A Child’s Voice Foundation Angel Hair for Kids, an organization which I am also pleased to have contributed to in the past.  These wigs are provided at no cost to under privileged Canadian children who have lost their hair due to illness and/or medical treatment.

Please invite your family members, children, friends and neighbours to attend this year’s Expo.  I look forward to seeing you there!
