Healthy Insight Events

FALL 2022

We all want to be healthy and happy, so an improved awareness of our bodies is a great benefit that can help with a shift in health, mindset and energy.

Once a month, Freson Bros. Edmonton is proud to host experts in their field, sharing their knowledge on ways to gain a better understanding of our bodies and how we can support them to be the best they can be. 

At each event, the expert will help you learn more about your body and includes a glass of wine or kombucha and a charcuterie spread. Discounts will be provided for the evening on any purchases from the Freson Bros.

Key Factors for Immune Health

Mood & Mental Health
Edmonton: Wed. Nov. 9 - 6pm to 9pm

When October hits and the first snow (yikes!) makes its first appearance, do you struggle to feel energetic and motivated? Would you rather curl up on the couch and watch Netflix all day? Or do you know someone around you who feels this way? If you answered yes to one or both of these questions, you might want to learn about different ways to support your mental health during Fall and Winter seasons. Come join Dr. Paradis ND for a talk on easy and actionable things you can do to feel like your best self.

Digestive Health
Edmonton: Wed. Dec. 14 - 6pm to 9pm

Holidays are an amazing time of the year to see friends and family and for some people to go on a vacation. Many people gather to share a meal and enjoy festive foods. Digestive issues are one of the most common concerns we help people with in the clinic after the holidays. What if there were ways to prevent bloating, constipation (or diarrhea), heartburn and other common digestive issues and not let all this get in the way of how you enjoy your holiday season? If you would like to find out ways to support your digestive health, join Dr. Paradis ND for a chat this December!
