Whole Body Healing: It's Just a Step to the Right
Dr. Terry Jaklin – Naturopath
Our beautiful brains are created for balance. The Left brain instigates the stress response to get us away from the saber tooth tiger; and the Right brain lets us know the danger has passed and it's time to relax. Today we live in the grip of stress. We can't get away from it. We rarely engage our bodies in activities that invite us to relax.
Join Teri Jaklin ND for an entertaining and enlightening seminar that looks at the dastardly effects of stress on the body from hormones to belly fat-sleeplessness to digestive distress-and discover creative ways to step to the Right of your Left brain. Learn and participate in easy activities that promote the relaxation response to instill peace and happiness.
Teri Jaklin is a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine and practises in Waterdown. Her interest in naturopathic medicine began in the early eighties with a personal search for "more" when it came to healthcare.
