As we are nearing the end of 2014, we want to take this opportunity to say “thank you!” to all our patients who have supported us this year. Many exciting events took place in 2014. Here is a summary of what happened this year:
During the annual Naturopathic Medicine Week in May, Brio hosted a movie screening of “GMO OMG” by Jeremy Seifert. Following the movie, we had presentations from local experts: Harold Steves, Colin Dring and Theresa Lynne. The evening concluded with a stimulating panel discussion.

In the Spring, the Brio team participated in a number of community events. We took part in the “Nurse Next Door” Wellness Show, the health shows at the Fairmont Hotel and Delta Hotel, Canadian In-Home Care Information Session, and a number of health talks at local community centres. Please contact the office early in the year if you would like one of us to present at your group or organization.
This year, we celebrated our 10th “Weight Loss Rehab” class! Our graduates have raved about this program! It is a 12 -week course that teaches you how to transform your metabolism, optimize immune and hormonal functions and prevent disease. If you would like to learn how to eat a whole foods diet and safely shed unwanted weight, please call to find out more. We are now taking registrations for our upcoming January 2015 class.
During the summer, we added Dawn to our administration team! Dawn has an undergraduate degree in psychology and has administration experience working in her family business. Dawn is at our office three days a week, and attends the Holistic Nutrition Program at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition (CSNN) on the other days. We are so happy to have Dawn join the Brio team!
If you haven't visited the clinic recently, please come by to see our newly completed reception and seating area. The "west coast" style is bright and fresh, yet warm and relaxing! Drop by and enjoy a cup of tea! Click on this link to see pictures.
Lastly, every year near Christmas time, we have our annual food drive benefitting The Richmond Food Bank. We are taking food donations between now and December 19th. Each time you donate, we will enter you into our lucky draw. This year we are giving away a FitBit Activity Monitor!
From all of us at Brio, we wish you a wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
