News from Michele
I became a member of the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation (PPNF). It is a non-profit education foundation, headquartered here in San Diego (Lemon Grove), committed to reversing the trend of declining health in our modern world. I attended a couple of their classes this year and was very impressed by their professional staff, their extensive library, and their well-researched speakers. If you are looking for more alternatives to prevent or reverse health conditions, PPNF is a great resource.
When I was at PPNF, I took two courses by David Getoff, a naturopath and clinical nutritionist. Whew, I was blown away with his data-rich, researched-based information about diet, supplements, cleaning products, toiletries, light bulbs, and more. Seriously! What he shared with us helped me improve my life even more – now taking dietary supplements, cleaning up my diet (working towards minimal-no sugars, starches, and alcohol), and minimizing all the toxins and stressors in my environment (changing over to non-toxic cleaning agents, clearing things that don’t work for me, etc.). People in San Diego can attend his courses at PPNF (call PPNF and ask about David’s schedule for his “Attaining Health in the 21st Century”) and anyone can take his course online anytime, Attaining Optimal Health. Let PPNF know I referred you, too. You won’t regret it!
Lastly, I met Esther Gokhale, author of 8 Step to a Pain-Free Back, and took her Gokhale Method Foundations Course. Extremely informative and she helped me broaden the concepts I learned about the spine which was supported with her research. She teaches you easy techniques that you can do personally to lengthen the spine (creating space between though discs!), which ultimately can help you get rid of back pain, specifically “StretchSitting” and “StretchLying” on your back and on your sides. You can do these techniques throughout the day and as long as you want. She says these techniques are better than an inversion table and cheaper too! Esther’s book is probably your local library so you can review it before buying it. Definitely participate in her free online workshops. I maybe on the call too! If you are interested in taking her course, but you don’t see it scheduled for your area, send her periodic requests and follow-up on them. More than likely she will request 8 or more people to be in class – well worth it!
To your health!
Body Sense blends features on a variety of massage-bodywork therapies with tips for healthy living. The Body Sense philosophy considers massage-bodywork therapy an integral facet of a healthy lifestyle, not just an indulgence. Body Sense is about educating the client, too! I personally enjoy reading Body Sense, because the articles are short and informative. Instead of “hearing it” from me, you can benefit from reading from other holistic health writers, too.
The Summer 2014 issue of Body Sense has just been published! Here’s a listing of the main articles:

I hope you take pleasure in reading Body Sense as much as I do! More issues can be found in the Body Sense Digital Archive.
Are you dependent on pain medications or considering splints and other supportive devices (like canes, shoe inserts, etc.), shots (like cortisone, steroids, etc.), and surgery to alleviate pain?
Are you tired of chronic pain, tingling, numbness, always getting injured, experiencing stress fractures, and lack of strength anywhere in your body?
Do you want improved movement, better range of motion, and restful sleep?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, I can help you with the connective tissue massage-bodywork therapies I use during sessions.

I would like to partner with other health practitioners (orthopedic surgeons, dentists, naturopath doctors, chiropractors, psychological counselors, athletic and life coaches, acupuncturists, movement instructors/practitioners), health facilities (gyms, exercise studios (karate, yoga, dance)), and small businesses in the city of San Diego. My sessions with clients do complement these services to bring about more health and well-being to people. If you have any recommendations, please connect us by sending them my e-newsletters and contact information, OR I would be happy to contact them directly!
I can provide demonstrations and classes about health and massage-bodywork to businesses and their employees. You can review the My Calendar link on my website for the talks and health/wellness events I’ve completed in the past in the San Diego community.
