December meetings - daytime now at AUMC 12/9, evening on homeopathy 12/16

We are doing one more trial daytime meeting on Thursday, December 9, 10 a.m. to noon. We'd hoped to meet at an Alexandria library, but there was a scheduling mix-up, so we'll be in Arlington at our regular evening location, AUMC, 716 S. Glebe Rd., Arlington, VA 22204.

We can discuss whatever is on people's minds. Some folks might want to revisit the November meeting's discussion of "holistic holidays" or talk about craft night and ways to include beauty in our evolving holiday rituals.

Daytime meetings will continue only with volunteer support/coordination. Let us know if you're interested!

The evening meeting this month is "Homeopathy 101" with Dr. Christopher Johnson of Thrive Naturopathic on December 16, 7-9 p.m. at our regular location of AUMC. Hope to see you there!

Addressing special diets and allergies in January and February

If you have or suspect someone you love has food sensitivities, you won't want to miss our January and February meetings.

On January 20, 2011, Cheryl Harris of Harris Whole Health will be talking about "Special Diets" including gluten-free, dairy-free, the Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) diet, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) and other special diets. She will focus on the whys of these diets -- how they work, what issues they address -- and will provide some suggestions for trying or sticking to these diets.

On February 17, 2011, Dr. Venus Seleme of Seleme Chiropractic Wellness Center will speak on the topic of "Allergy Elimination," an energetic way to clear or reduce the symptoms of food, chemical and environmental sensitivities without medication. She has a background in N.A.E.T. and Applied Kinesiology.

These presentations are sure to shed light on lots of health concerns and issues of other symptoms, like mood and behavioral disorders.
