The holiday season centers around friends, family, and fun, but without the proper safety precautions, it can take a turn for the worse. Thousands interrupt their plans to visit the emergency room for winter-related injuries. Keep you and your loved ones out of the hospital with these easy-to-follow safety tips:
Reduce the Risk of FireParticularly prominent in winter months, residential house fires -- nearly 47,000 each year according to the Red Cross -- often spark from malfunctioning or improperly used heaters, unattended candles and misplaced decorations.
Help prevent injury and property loss by keeping flammable objects at least three feet away from heat sources, and never leave lit candles, fireplaces and stoves unattended. Equip each floor of your home with smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
Avoid FallsFalls associated with home decorations account for nearly 6,000 emergency room visits each year. Minimize your risk of injury by taking extra care when hanging decor, and if you need a boost, use a ladder or step stool. When you have a more extensive project like lights on your home's exterior, consider hiring a professional to tackle the work for you.
Be Cautious With PlantsWhile plants like mistletoe, lilies, holly and poinsettias add a festive touch, they can also be dangerous to your furry friends. From intestinal distress, vomiting and diarrhea to seizures and fatal heart problems, pets can suffer if they decide to give these varieties a taste.
Looking forward to enjoying the holiday season? Help ensure you do just that by taking these safety precautions.

A new year means its time for a New Years Resolution! And just like last year, youve convinced yourself that by signing up for a Club Fit membership youll finally be able to take charge of your health and fitness.
Maybe youll do cardio a few times a week, or perhaps youll take a few fitness classes, such as our Spinning Class or our Corporate Noon Boot Camp, that way youre really committed to improving your health.
But let me fill you in on a dirty little secret: Roughly 78% of people FAIL at sticking to their New Years Resolution fitness goals. 78 percent!
Why is that, you wonder? Its because without a well-developed fitness and nutrition plan, you are unlikely to stay on track with your goals. And when you stop seeing progress, you stop going to the gym altogether.
Thats why I believe its critically important that you work with one of the FitPros at Club Fit for a minimum of 5-10 appointments. You are already investing in a club membership, now you need to invest in educating yourself on how to take care of YOUR body and work towards YOUR fitness goals.
Trying to stick to your resolution without help is like trying to do karaoke without knowing the words to the songyoure destined to fail! So sign up today to work with a FitPro and invest in yourself! Its the best investment you can make.

2016 has been a year of big changes at Canby Clinic. In July, the Oregon Health Coop failed and we were left with thousands of dollars in unpaid claims. Insurance companies continue to discriminate against naturopaths and our insurance reimbursement rates keep going down while our expenses keep going up. This creates a challenge. After researching different business models, we decided to convert Canby Clinic into a membership medical practice. Members pay a very affordable monthly fee of $25-$100 depending on age. There are no limits on doctor visits and the membership covers all the primary care services we provide.
To support this new endeavor, we have assembled a team of five skilled naturopathic physicians with over 40 years of combined experience. Each of the physicians brings a unique background of knowledge and talent. We work together as a team to best serve our patients. The physicians are trained in all the therapies we provide including prolozone, IV therapy, and our new radiofrequency machine which can remove moles and skin tags.
The new membership program will not only allow the physicians more freedom of practice, it takes down many barriers to receiving ongoing care for our patients. We are limiting the number of memberships so we can provide outstanding accessible care to our patients. Our goal, as always, is to help our patents achieve optimal health in a timely manner. We offer 15 minute meet the doctor appts if youd like to check us out. (503)266-7443.
