October 2017 Newsletter

A note from the midwives: 

Winter has come upon us quickly! We are careful during the changing of the seasons to keep our families in good health because we know that periods of change can stress our bodies. All of us at The Birth Center try to help our clients to achieve and keep good health. Therefore, we have planned the upcoming seminar on keeping your family healthy in Cold and Flu season. There are many ways to keep your family healthy and we want to remind you of a few of them:

  •  Essential oils for cleaning the air and surfaces (we have oils available in our center) some of them are:
  • Wild Orange Peel, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Leaf, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Leaf, Rosemary Leaf/Flower, Lemongrass and Melaleuca which is Tea Tree
  • Herbs to strengthen and assist the body. Some of them are:
  • Garlic, Onion, Ginger, Sage, Echinacea, Cinnamon and Elderberry
  • Exercise to keep the blood circulating, lungs and muscles strong.
  • Even walking which gives you fresh air with your exercise (not recommended when we are having an inversion)
  • Meditation to calm the mind and decrease stress.
  • There are so many ways to meditate; traditional meditation, Yoga and Tai Chi, listening to music, even reading can be a form of calming meditation
  • Full spectrum lighting in your home to decrease symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder or ‘SAD’
  • Ask for ‘full spectrum’ bulbs at your home improvement store, consider having flowers in your home as well
  • Living plants in every room to clean the air. These also decrease symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder or ‘SAD’. Some plants that clean the air well are:
  • Chrysanthemum, Spider plant, Dracaena, Mother-in-Law’s tongue or Snake plant, Peace Lily and the Boston Fern
  • Good nutrition to nourish and strengthen the body.  Our November seminar will focus entirely on nutrition- led by Paige Smathers, RDN.

Remember to enjoy the season and if you do come down with something, call us! We would love to help you.  --Becky and Eve
