Holistic Methods to Promote Sleep Workshop
July 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
With Naturopathic Dr. Penelope Houghton
More than one-third of Americans are affected by sleep problems according to the CDC. Health challenges, including cancer, are among the leading reasons of sleep disturbance. On Friday, July 13, 2018, Dr. Penelope Houghton of Acadia Naturopathic Medical
Clinic will present the workshop, Holistic Methods to Promote Sleep from 11:00 am – 12:00 noon.
Dr. Houghton will explore with the group how sleep can be affected by pain, the side effects of treatments, and the anxieties about the impact of illness on our lives, and in turn, the
importance of sleep in helping a person cope and heal. The discussion will look at strategies to help yourself when you experience disrupted sleep at home, and therapies that can be helpful to restoring circadian rhythms and healthy sleep cycles.
Dr. Houghton established the Acadia Naturopathic Medical Clinic in Ellsworth in 2004. As a naturopathic doctor, Dr. Houghton believes that health is a process of enhancing the body’s
innate capacity to heal, as well as helping patients to find the balance among physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions of well-being. Her practice offers holistic health care and a range of treatment modalities for people of all ages and many conditions.
This event will be held at the Beth Wright Cancer Resource Center at 23 Commerce Park in Ellsworth. It is free of charge and open to all. Please call 207-664-0339 with questions or to
