hgwELDERS.Org: Native Lifestyle Medicine, Tradition & Kinship

Herbal Gardens Wellness employs a holistic approach rooted in Lifestyle Medicine to address the health needs of Native American Elders in Colorado. Through a combination of individual and group medical appointments, they focus on integrating natural remedies and lifestyle adjustments tailored to the specific cultural and biological contexts of Native American communities.

In individual appointments, practitioners work closely with Elders to create personalized wellness plans emphasizing traditional healing practices, nutrition, physical activity, stress management, and herbal remedies. These plans are designed to address chronic disease symptoms while respecting each individual's unique cultural background and preferences.

In group appointments, Herbal Gardens Wellness fosters a supportive community environment where Elders can share experiences and learn from one another. This collective approach encourages peer support and helps reinforce positive lifestyle changes. Group sessions may include traditional ceremonies, group movement activities such as round dances and powwows, and traditional Tribal nutrition and herbal medicine walks with workshops.

Overall, Herbal Gardens Wellness's use of the Lifestyle Medicine modality for Native American Elders in Colorado represents a culturally sensitive and practical approach to reducing chronic disease symptoms, ultimately promoting the well-being and longevity of this community.
