    At this supportive Q & A panel discussion, our guest hosts will be offering their professional advice to aid those who are looking for answers to assist them in improving their physical and emotional well-being. 

     

    Guest panelists:

     

    Dr. Nancy Iankowitz, DNP, RN, APRN, FNP-BC, Director of Holistic and Integrative Healing LLC, is a certified family nurse practitioner by trade, mother by choice, and writer by nature. Her books facilitate healing through storytelling, so adults and children of all ages may learn how to cope with anxiety and improve communication in their relationships. Her articles separate fact from fiction to allay fears and educate the public about wellness practices to protect themselves and loved ones from the flu, sinusitis, back pain, COVID-19, and more. As a Reiki practitioner she teaches self-healing, as we all have that power. As a functional medicine provider (over 30 years), she embraces a SYSTEMS – based rather than ‘symptoms – based’ approach to wellness. Eastern and western wisdom are blended to individualize treatments & recommendations for each patient.

    Carol-Lee Kantor, MSW, now retired, worked professionally and also as a community volunteer in the fields of Education, Recreation, Community and Medical Social Work, Arts Administration, Community Theatre and Media for over fifty years.  She holds a BSc. from Sargent College, Boston University; a MS Ed from Western Connecticut State University at Danbury and a MSW from Wurzweiler School of Social Work, Yeshiva University.

    Carol-Lee resides in Holmes, where she and Joseph, her husband of 57 years, raised three daughters Jill, Hilari and Lynel (all PCS graduates).  At present, they feel blessed for many wonderful visits with their families, their grandchildren and friends.

    At this time, Carol-Lee feels she is learning many new technical and communication skills as she and her loved ones cope with the stresses and strains caused by the Pandemic. She looks forward to the opportunity for a community dialogue on how we are being impacted as well as how we handle the many challenges we encounter at this time.

     

    Gabrielle Semel, ERYT 500, AHC: As Founder of Pawling Yoga & Wellness, Gabrielle is committed to the lifestyle of Yoga and Ayurveda, and has been sharing practices supported by these healing sciences for 13 years. Her approach begins with the intention to connect with each individual, to hold the space for healing, and offer guidance that honors and embraces where one is on his/her own path.

    A graduate of Rutgers University with a BS in Exercise Physiology, Gabrielle moved on to yoga to broaden her understanding of movement and the body-mind complex. Her training began with Amy Pearce-Hayden for 200-Hour Teacher Training certification at The RajaHatha School of Yoga in 2006, and four years later traveled the path of the 500-Hour Teacher Training with certification in 2011. Inspired by her students, and with a commitment to learning and devotion to service Gabrielle continues to dive deeper in search of a broader understanding of the healing process. She currently has the privilege of studying Ayurvedic Medicine with Dr. Somesh Kaushik at his Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Clinic in Cross River, NY.

    Prevent Type 2 will give you a full year of support to help you to: 

    • Eat healthy
    • Add physical activity to your day

    • Stay motivated 

     

    Please join us. 

    YOU CAN MAKE A CHANGE FOR LIFE

     

    Putnam Independent Living Services and the Pawling Library partner to offer the National Diabetes Prevention Program Virtually 

    Luke is one of the 84 million Americans who have been diagnosed with prediabetes, a condition where your blood sugar is high but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as Type 2 diabetes. He completed the Prevent Type 2 National Diabetes Prevention Program and had this to say “I’ve lost over 30 pounds.  It’s been a slow, steady change over the year I was enrolled in the Prevent T2 Program at Putnam Independent Living Services. I feel great!” 

    One in three American adults have prediabetes. You can take the CDC Risk Test at https://doihaveprediabetes.org / for a quick (2 minute) answer to what your risk is for developing the disease.  If you’re at high risk it’s a good idea to see your health care provider for a blood test.  The good news is that with an early diagnosis prediabetes can be reversed.  With December kicking off the holiday season, it’s a good time to get started.  

    By joining the National Diabetes Prevention Program you’ll learn how to make small changes, like altering your diet and exercising more which can help to reverse prediabetes and prevent type 2 diabetes.  You’ll read labels and make choices, keeping in mind that, if you plan for it, a small serving of your favorite holiday food it doesn’t have to be on the naughty list. 

    You can help to holiday proof your plan by making sure you keep moving. Walking with friends and family is a great activity after a holiday meal. Even when the weather is chilly you can dress appropriately and enjoy the crisp winter air.  

    Luke offers some advice “You have a lot on your plate this time of year so it’s also important to plan ahead and remember portion control.  Portion control was key for me.  Skip the seconds and stick to drinking water to eliminate high calorie beverages.”    

    Prevent Type 2 is a one-year program that offers a Life Style Coach, a Center for Disease Control (CDC) curriculum and the support of participants like you who are ready to get serious. The Life Style coach helps participants reach the goal of losing 7% of their body weight and increasing physical activity to 150 minutes or more every week.    

    PILS is partnering with the Pawling Library to offer the National Diabetes Prevention Program free to adults in Dutchess County in January 2021. Sessions will be delivered to the group remotely and participants will need a phone, tablet or computer with internet access.  

    Luke endorses the program heartily, “My tests show that I’m no longer prediabetic and I credit the Diabetes Prevention Program for the help and support. “   

    To find out more about Prevent Type 2 contact Lonna Kelly at 845.228.7457 ext.1110 or email lkelly@putnamils.org. Additional information is available at http://www.putnamils.org/diabetes-prevention-program / Westchester Independent Living Center (WILC) and Putnam Independent Living Services (PILS) are consumer controlled nonresidential centers for independent living, which provide information and advocacy to persons with disabilities.

    Addictions come in many forms: drugs, alcohol, smoking, food, sex, shopping, work, exercise, social media, negativity, etc. They provide a temporary escape from stress. But, when inappropriate methods are used, an imbalance occurs. The root cause of the stress, hidden in the unconscious, is not resolved. And, a vicious cycle ensues.

    Ayurveda is a healing system that not only restores balance, its methodology removes the unconscious blocks that create chronic stress. Ayurvedic treatments such as diet, nutritional herbs, meditation, therapeutic Yoga, and an herbal detoxification process known as panchakarma, work hand-in-hand to create a shift on a physical level, as well as on a mental and spiritual level. The result is a transformation and unification of body, mind, and spirit that resolves the separation responsible for the addiction. Your true self emerges and the addiction is no longer necessary.

    About our presenter: Dr. Somesh N. Kaushik is the owner and chief medical practitioner of Dr. Kaushick’s Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Clinic in Cross River, NY. With over 35 years’ experience as an Ayurvedic physician, Dr. Kaushik’s medical training is extensive. He is one of the most experienced Ayurvedic physicians in North America and is the recipient of the Dhanwantri Award, his profession’s highest honor. Dr. Kaushik recently founded the Institute for the Advancement of Ayurvedic Sciences, a research and teaching institution.

    After completing the 6 ½ years of schooling for his Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (BAMS) from Kurukshetra University, India, in 1983, Dr. Kaushik worked as an Ayurvedic Medical Officer for two years. 

    Upon moving to the United States in 1985, Dr. Kaushik received his Masters of Public Health (MPH) and Masters of Public Administration (MPA) from the University of Alabama in 1988. He then worked as an Epidemiologist and Director of HIV/AIDS Sero-surveillance Program with the Alabama Department of Public Health in Birmingham while maintaining an Ayurvedic practice.

    In 1999 he moved to Connecticut and received his Doctor of Naturopathy (ND) from the University of Bridgeport, CT in 2003. He taught Ayurvedic Medicine and Public Health at the College of Naturopathic Medicine, University of Bridgeport, as well as serving as the Director of Admissions there. He has been a faculty member with the University of Bridgeport, Division of Health Sciences since 2001. Dr. Kaushik co-founded the Institute for Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Therapies in Fairfield, CT in 2006.

    Dr. Kaushik lectures on Ayurvedic Medicine at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, Portland, OR, as well as at various national and international symposiums and events.

    Each year, Dr. Kaushik and his family travel to India to set up camps offering free medical care for underserved populations. He’d like to expand this service to other countries as well.
