Holistic Methods to Promote Sleep Workshop Scheduled for July

Dr. Penelope Houghton will present healthy solutions

Ellsworth, Maine—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 how sleep can be affected by pain, side effects of treatments, and the anxieties about the impact of illness on our lives and the importance of sleep in helping to cope and heal. The discussion will look at strategies to help when one experiences disrupted sleep and therapies that can help restore circadian rhythms and healthy sleep cycles.

Dr. Houghton established the Acadia Naturopathic Medical Clinic in Ellsworth in 2004. As a naturopathic doctor, she believes that health is a process of enhancing the body’s innate capacity to heal. Her practice offers holistic healthcare and a range of treatments for all ages.

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 register.
