THIS ORACLE TEMPLE EVENT WILL BE OFFERED VIA ZOOM.
To register and participate, contact Darcy@TheOracleInstitute.org for Zoom Instructions.
Please join us the 2nd Friday of the month for the Oracle Temple Spirituality Salon. Each month, we select a new theme to explore, with topics ranging from sacred texts, to indigenous wisdom, esoterica, and New Age theosophies. We then engage in a spirited discussion, and we welcome you to share your thoughts and help us learn more about ourselves, each other, and God.
April's theme will be Naturopathic Medicine, with Dr. Sarah of Collective Health Center. She will also touch on the attempted bill HB 2044.
Dr. Sarah Giardenelli, ND, MSOM, LAC, was born and raised in upstate New York. She completed her undergraduate studies in pre-medicine and psychology at the State University of New York at Buffalo. Knowing from an early age that she wanted to help people achieve optimal health naturally, she found her calling at the National College of Natural Medicine, in Portland, OR. After six years of study, Sarah earned both a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine with Honors in Research and a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine. She then completed her naturopathic residency at Clifton Springs Hospital & Clinic, outside of Rochester, NY.
She also is President of the Virginia Association of Naturopathic Physicians
With over 10 years of clinical experience, she has special interest in integrative medicine, clinical nutrition, environmental medicine/ toxicity, pain, and chronic disease management, Chinese and Western herbal medicine, women’s health, gastrointestinal health, and geriatric health. She works to help uncover root causes for patient's ongoing health challenges and provides a personalized approach to optimizing health based on lifestyle and natural medicine.
Dr. Giardenelli sees her service in the healthcare profession as an honor, part of the change to provide a better healthcare system for the community. Her passion for integrative and natural medicine stems from her own personal experience of relief from years of digestive and intestinal chaos and family experience of healing with natural medicine. This passion for improving the health of her community, one patient at a time, lead to the founding her practice, Collective Health Center, in Leesburg, Virginia in 2018.
