Feeling energized, healthy and happy is easier than you think!
If you didn’t catch our last post on Fitness in Downtown New West - my name is Sidney Shindle. I am a holistic nutritionist, private chef, baker and former national level synchronized swimming coach! I am also the owner of Veritas Wellness, a nutrition and wellness consulting company right here in Downtown New West. Over the next few weeks I am sharing some of the most convenient and effective ways to help you feel your best in 2018, all here in beautiful New Westminster. Whether you’re a long-time wellness guru or someone looking to make a few changes, these posts are meant to help guide you wherever you may be on your path to wellness.
Wellness Tip #2 - Take the time to take care of yourself.
If you’re looking for ways to boost your energy levels, reset sleeping patterns or learn more about nutrition, Downtown New West has a handful of amazing practitioners to choose from. Visiting a naturopath, acupuncturist or nutritionist is a great way to learn about how to approach disease, skin issues, autoimmune conditions and more from a holistic point of view. Instead of focusing on how to hide the issue, holistic practitioners get to the root of the problem. The base of their approach is to get to know you as an individual so they can better address the why and how in order to heal you from the inside out, rather than putting a band-aid on the problem.
New West is also home to many RMT’s and chiropractors to help you work through injuries and more. Here is a list of some of the many practitioners who call Downtown New West home.
Polo Health + Longevity Centre
Polo Health + Longevity Centre is a wellness clinic with a multi-disciplinary, integrative and holistic approach to preventative health care. Their team of practitioners - naturopathic doctors, medical doctors, nutritionists, counsellors, acupuncturists and colon hydrotherapy technicians, work synergistically together to discover the root of illness, to treat the underlying cause of symptoms, and to empower patients to make lasting lifestyle changes that support prevention.
Gathered Roots offers acupuncture in both a private and community setting. For those looking to cut down on the cost of acupuncture, opting for a bed in the communal part of their space means you may have other patients in the room with you, cutting the price without cutting the level of care you receive.
