New Year, New You: Clinic offers integrative medicine courses

February 6, 2019

WABASHA — Between February and May, Saint Elizabeth’s Community Clinic will offer a four-part series of classes on integrative medicine.

Each class will meet twice during a given month, so community members have two chances to continue their education.

Dr. Soleil Arrieta, a doctor at Saint Elizabeth’s clinic, will lead the courses.

The schedule is as follows:

• Introduction to Integrative Medicine will be offered from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday and from 10:15 to 11:15 a.m. Thursday. The session will compare integrative, therapeutic medicine to alternative and functional medicine.

• Ingredients for an Anti-Inflammatory Lifestyle will be offered from 10:15 to 11:15 a.m. and 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. March 14. The class will discuss the causes of prolonged inflammation, the related health risks, and how to use food to combat the condition.

• Holistic Approach to Managing Chronic Pain takes place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. April 3 and 10:15 to 11:15 a.m. April 4. The session focuses on alternative, non-opioid pain management techniques like nutrition, vitamins, physical activity, and more.

• The last class, Dry Needle Therapy: What is it and How does it work?, will be offered from 10:15 to 11:15 a.m. and from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. May 2. The session will explain dry needling, which is different from acupuncture or wet needling.
