Supplement seminar goes Saturday in Stratford
The Council for Health Improvement through Research and Practice (C.H.I.R.P.) is presenting its first in a series of three seminars on current health issues.
The first event is Saturday, Jan. 16, 10 a.m.-noon at The Robert L Cotton Centre, 57 Bunbury Rd., Stratford. The seminar topic is Supplementary Vitamins and Minerals: Reality and Fiction. The presenter is Dr. Gretchen MacLean, a licensed naturopathic doctor and the owner of the Island Wellness Centre.
“The topic is of special interest following CBC’s Marketplace and Fifth Estate research and programming on supplements, asking the question: Are you getting what you’re promised?” a news release states.
CHIRP welcomes health researchers, health care professionals and all interested Islanders to this seminar. The format of the seminar encourages dialogue with, and among, the participants.
CHIRP is a P.E.I. based not-forprofit, which acknowledges that health and illness involve the dynamic interaction of body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Complementary medicine involves varied health approaches, both research and therapy, which can function cooperatively alongside conventional medicine. There is a rapid growth of knowledge and practice of energy therapy and all aspects of complementary medicine. Most forward-looking health researchers and health professionals have a growing awareness that there are multiple solutions to many current health problems.
The seminars are designed to promote everyone taking ownership of their own health in a proactive and preventative fashion. CHIRP emphasizes the need for all people, not just professionals, to be knowledgeable about the causes of illnesses, the possible solutions, and the most promising outcomes.
