Healthy Lombard Fair

This was an exciting weekend for the NUHS Whole Health Center! Naturopathic interns participated in the annual Healthy Lombard Fair held at the Yorktown Center mall as representatives for NUHS and the NUHS Whole Health Center.

The Healthy Lombard Fair is a gathering of health-oriented organizations within the Lombard area. Health centers, universities, exercise groups, and health-oriented businesses gather in one spot to promote healthy living. One could find care and strategies, suggestions and ideas for a healthy lifestyle ranging from prenatal.

We naturopathic interns from NUHS represented our school and all programs provided by the NUHS Whole Health Center thoroughly and had a great time while we were at it. We discussed our wide range of services available at the clinic such as...

  • Naturopathic Care
  • Chiropractic Care
  • PTSD Clinic for returning veterans from overseas
  • Acupuncture
  • Traditional Chinese Medicine
  • Massage Therapy
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Detoxification Programs
  • Weight Loss Clinic

Finally, a new local cable access program supporting healthy living in Lombard asked each of us to give a healthy tip of the day for the local program. So, each of us (Kish, Heather, Jerrica, and yours truly) took a turn in front of the camera to give a daily healthy guideline for the show's viewers.

The Healthy Lombard Fair was a great way for our interns to gain practice and exposure with the general public to speak about naturopathic medicine (or as I like to say 'conservative primary care') and generate some positive publicity for our clinic here at the school. 

Until next week, stay warm and look for spring coming around the corner!
