Do you find yourself, as we do, beginning to look more inward as we catch our first glimpses of that beautiful, crisp fall weather? There is something about this change in season that compels us to find additional ways to nourish both our bodies and minds. Your friends at Selby are here to support you during this transition.
Molly’s online meditation series continues
Due to popular demand, our gifted Molly Kubinski will continue her weekly meditation series into the fall season. This is a free offering and is open to all- no need to be a current patient of the clinic. New to meditation? That’s ok! Molly will guide attendees through a relaxing 30-minute session every Tuesday evening from 6:00-6:30pm.
(And don’t forget- Election Night falls on a Tuesday. Consider this meditation as a great stress buster!)

Herbal soup mixes- the perfect transition to soup season!
As we enter fall, the thought of a warm, nourishing bowl of soup becomes more appealing. Did you know that our clinic carries a delicious mix of raw herbs that adds incredible health benefits to a batch of bone broth? Many of you already know and love this mix for its mild, sweet flavor and because it is very easy to prepare and modify to personal tastes. It is the perfect way to stay warm and boost your immunity during the colder months!
But what herbs are in the mix, and what do they do? Here is a brief overview of some of the benefits you can expect from a single bowl of soup:
- Mu Er (Wood Ear): For dry cough, dry throat and mouth and other symptoms of dryness.
- Huang Qi (Astragalus): All types of Qi deficiency syndromes.
- Lian Zi (Lotus Seed): For loss of appetite and diarrhea due to weak digestion. Soothes irritability and restlessness.
- Shan Yao (Dioscorea): Treats Qi and Yin deficiency.
- Gou Qi Zi (Lycium Fruit): For deficiency due to overwork and aging, for weak vision and for chronic cough.
- Dang Shen (Codonopsis): For all types of Qi deficiency syndromes, especially with weak digestion.
- Long Yan Rou (Longan): For deficiency of blood, with poor memory, heart palpitations and weakness.
- He Shou Wu (Polygonium): Replenishes Jing (essence), nourishes Blood and eliminates toxins.
Prepackaged bags of soup mix are sold at both clinics, so give us a call or ask about them the next time you are in!
