Seattle-area Seniors Show Great Interest in Naturopathic Solutions

Era Living and Bastyr University Collaborate to Present Educational Series about Options for Health & Wellness for Older Adults.

Ida Culver House Ravenna is conveniently located within walking distance of many shops, and near the University of Washington.

Ida Culver House Ravenna hosts 'Just Breathe' on March 19th which begins the Bastyr University - Era Living collaborative series of wellness education for older adults in Seattle.

Studies have shown that by taking a proactive approach to one’s own health can lead to not only a longer life but one filled with better quality as well.

Bastyr University and Era Living are collaborating to enhance the health and well-being of older adults with a year of free workshop offerings at Era Living communities located throughout the Seattle metro-area.

Topics range from nutrition and supplementation to movement and alternative therapies to combat inflammation, stress, pain, moodiness, weigh issues and more with the desired result of a more educated older population.

“Part of the goal of naturopathic medicine is to prevent problems from happening before they start,” says Bastyr University President Daniel K. Church, PhD. “Studies have shown that by taking a proactive approach to one’s own health can lead to not only a longer life but one filled with better quality as well.”

This collaboration is savvy for both Era Living and Bastyr; seniors are the fastest growing segment of the American population, yet often have little knowledge of natural medicine and its benefits. Since the partnership began one year ago the presentations have been welcomed by seniors from throughout the Seattle area.

“Lectures by Bastyr professors at Era Living communities have received some of the highest attendance of all the classes offered as part of our lifelong learning program,” says Era Living Programs Development Manager, Tina Hall. “Era Living residents, their families, friends and neighbors all want to learn more about natural ways to be and stay healthy. Bastyr and its team of wellness focused practitioners are helping our residents feel great in mind, body and spirit.”
