Community Involvement

Much of the talk in our office is about physical wellness, but since we treat the whole person, this post is going to focus on another area of wellness –community involvement.

A sense of connection with one’s community has many positive effects on one’s mental and emotional health:

  • You become a part of something bigger than yourself
  • You have a feeling of belonging
  • You have a feeling of purpose
  • You become involved in helping create health in your environment
  • You establish new friendships
  • You encounter new ideas
  • And many many more

VFM recently reached out to the community by attending a screening of the movie Numen that was hosted by Mountain Mel’s at the Sandy Public Library.  The focus of the film as well as the movie was on community involvement and herbal medicine.  It is a lovely film and comes highly recommended for those who would like to learn more about the subject of herbal medicine and its worldwide importance.  Mountain Mel’s is focused on bringing herbal and holistic medicine into the eastern county community specifically in the Welches area; be sure to contact them with any interest or ideas you may have.

The doctors of VFM also engage in many ongoing community activities, from teaching at all levels to directing plays and to being involved in our local schools and organizations we are always on the lookout for ways we can contribute to the community.  Let us know how you are involved in the community, and let us know how VFM can show our support.
