Healing Through Naturopathic Medicine

Week of February 22, 2025

Here we explore foundational principles of wellness from the perspective of a Naturopathic Doctor (ND). The Ranch offers an ideal place to dive deeply into practicing the principles discussed, and participants will leave with practical, creative ideas for implementation in daily life. We begin with an introduction to Naturopathic Medicine, followed by a lecture on the therapeutic benefits of water, both during times of health and illness, and then an experiential session on mindful eating. Finally, we will discuss strategies to proactively support the mental health of our youth, knowing we all want young people in our lives to thrive.
