Natural Awakenings New York City

A New Life With Rheumatoid Arthritis

Is Rheumatoid Arthritis affecting your morning routine?  Would you like the strength and flexibility to move comfortably throughout your day? Perhaps you are overwhelmed by medications and their potential side effects.  Naturopathic Dr. Ivy Branin and Ruschelle Khanna co-owner of Brevi fitness have teamed up to design a fun and informative workshop in NYC that focuses on your health and helps uncover the underlying cause of your rheumatoid arthritis.

If you don’t want to cover up your symptoms and prefer prevention of flare-ups with the least invasive treatment as possible, then their nurturing, straightforward approach is for you.  In this workshop, you will learn about proper nutrition to prevent flareups and increase energy and how to maintain optimal fitness as well as exercises to help with range of motion and stamina.  They offer tips on navigating supplements effectively and managing side effects of medications naturally.
