The Self-Care Revolution D

by Dr. Robyn Benson

iabetes. Alzheimer’s. Obe- sity. Cancer. With disease and depression running rampant,

it’s not surprising to learn that we run the risk of exposing ourselves to over 80,000 toxins in our modern day-to-day lives. Enter the Self-Care Revolution™, an inspiring, educational 12-month series of weekly 60-minute telesemi- nars, Q&A calls, self-care journals and self-assessment tools. The series is designed to promote more holistic, patient-centered solu- tions to the current disease-management model of healthcare. Inspired by Dr. Robyn Benson, DOM, a specialist in pain management, women’s health and family medicine, and sponsored by San- ta Fe Soul Health & Healing Center, the Self-Care Revolution is bringing together world-renowned leaders in the field of complementary and alternative medi- cine with those who wish to actively attempt to prevent or reverse disease. “Be your own best health-care

advocate” is the first of five pathways that Dr. Benson speaks about regularly in order to prevent illness and stay well. The compound effects of self-care choices made daily—which includes food, exercise and stress manage- ment—have a profound effect on

personal health throughout life. “Daily choices that aren’t in alignment with your well-being can ultimately lead to disease which can take years to be expressed,” says Dr. Benson. “Self-care is the true healthcare and now is the time to commit to sustainable self-care strategies.” The Self-Care Revolution connects members with coaches who provide mentoring and guidance. The potential transformation includes such things as fat and weight loss while learning about foods, reducing the need for medica- tion, improving mental clarity and focus, increasing energy and stamina, reducing aches and pains, and lots of other important information intended to help people empower themselves to make wise choices for themselves and their families.

Subscribers to the series receive access to weekly 60-minute telesemi- nars, Q&A calls, self-care journals, and self-assessment tools on the following topics:
