Fall is here, traditionally our best weather of the year, and so far it is looking great! Be sure to take advantage of the last of our long days and get outdoors for your exercise as much as possible.
Remember, the most important thing about exercise is that "you just do it"! It doesn't have to be the perfect 90-minute routine, even 15 minutes is much better than nothing. So take great care of yourself by finding the exercise you enjoy most and get into a routine of doing it on a regular basis.
Dr. Dale and Laurie Out of the Office
We are headed to Tahoe for some R&R. I will be out of the office from Thursday, Sept. 15th - Monday Sept. 19th, and will be in the office all day Tuesday, Sept. 20th.
Of course while I am gone you now have two choices to take care of your health care needs, Dr. Kara Aldrich and Dr. Mark Carnaghe, both will be sure to do a good job of replacing me while I'm gone.
Be Prepared for Cold and Flu Season - Special Discount on Immune Packages
The Cold and Flu Season is upon us once again. Last year many of my patients were prepared to jump into action at the first sign of an infection, and for those who did we had excellent results.
The key, as always, is to Be Prepared! That means having the products from Dr. Dale's Immune Protocols on hand to start taking at the first sign of an infection. This is the most important step you can take to minimize the chances of any infection really setting you back.
Here is my Immune Protocol Refrigerator Page so it is easier to know what to do right away. Please be sure to open the attachment, print it out and place it on your refrigerator.
Also, if you feel your immune system is not as strong as you would like it to be, please call for an appointment ASAP. During your appointment I can specifically assess what you can do to strengthen your immune system, therefore increasing your resistance to the bugs that are coming our way. We have some new products that are great for this situation.
Monthly Product Specials: To support you in being well prepared for the cold and flu season, I have the following special discounts: Receive a 10% discount on Large Im-Encap or Immune Balancing Complex and Q. Colostrum or IgG 2000. Family Pack: Buy two of either of the above packages and get an additional 5% off. The above Specials are effective until Oct. 15th! If you want to add Humacel (formerly Ultimate Defense), we will extend the savings to that also. If you want to do the Infection Prevention Program listed on the Refrigerator Page, buying one or more of each, you will receive 10% off of that also.
Great News - A New "Cold and Flu Workshop" is Coming to the Clinic
On Tuesday, Sept. 27th, Dr. Kara and Dr. Mark will be presenting a workshop titled "Don't Let the Cold and Flu Season Rule Your Life". Learn all about colds and flues, risk factors and causes, and most importantly how you and your family can strengthen your immune system and stay healthy! This is a complimentary class for patients and their guests. We expect it to fill up fast, so please call to register ASAP.
The Gaucho Men's Soccer Team is off to a great start and currently ranked 6th on the National Coaches Poll! Their next home game is Friday, Sept. 23rd, so come out and cheer on a very exciting group of young men. Also, there is a great video on the Gaucho Website covering in a few short minutes the rise of the Gaucho's to national prominence through or over the years. This short film is well worth watching, and includes the highlight of the video showing the Harder Stadium Goals being taken to the sea by the students after we won the National Championship in 2006! This is not to be missed.
I plan on sending out a second newsletter toward the end of this month, with some very interesting new research notes and articles, including one on nutrition for your kids, How to Grow Them Smart and Healthy!
