Dr. Zimmer to present at IECA - "Optimizing Mental Health: A Naturopathic Medical Approach in a Therapeutic Base Camp Environment" - Pacific Quest: Wilderness Therapy for Teens & Young Adults

PQ’s Naturopathic Doctor Britta Zimmer is presenting at IECA in Philadelphia!  This is exciting news for the PQ team as we value the integral role of health and nutrition in the therapeutic process.  For those of you attending the conference please make sure to check out Dr. Zimmer’s presentation on May 5 at 2:45 pm.

The session will demonstrate, through clinical examples and current research, how optimal nutrition and positive lifestyle modifications can decrease mood, anxiety, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorders. Optimizing nutritional status, regulating sleep patterns, promoting exercise, and teaching breathing techniques facilitates the therapeutic process. As the physical body becomes more balanced, the mental / emotional body becomes more receptive to therapy. The value of a sustainable model of growth, self-care, and health will be demonstrated within therapeutic environments.
