Who's down with PPC? Yeah you know me.
Who is the Patient Physician Cooperative (PPC)? These folks are a non-profit healthcare co-op, who cuts out the insurance middleman and connects doctors (and other providers) to those needing their services. By becoming a member (roughly the cost equivalent of a gym membership) patients can choose from two plans and get a great deal on the healthcare services they need. Below are details from them. See their website or call me at 503-960-2162 for more information.
The creation of the PPC comes at a time when many people do not have an affordable solution to gaining access to preventative and medical care. People who would want to change how health care is organized in their communities have banned together to join and support the PPC. This includes the self-employed, insured but would like complementary care, those who work for small businesses, as well as, local primary care practitioners, such as Medical Doctors, Chiropractors, Physician's Assistants, Naturopaths, Doctors of Oriental Medicine and Nurse Practitioners.
Can't afford health insurance but know you're long overdue to see a doctor? PPC's got your back. Have crummy health insurance coverage through your work, where between your astronomical deductible and the minimal care (did that doctor even make eye contact with me once?), you're not even using it anyway? PPC's got your back. Call the office at 503-960-2162 for more information and you can sign up during any office visit with Dr. Angela. Quick, simple, easy and just like that, you have a doctor who's on your side.

HeartMath biofeedback technique
Thank you for reading.
To your good health,
Do you deal with stress, anxiety and tension in your body day in and day out? Many do. Some are able to not let stressful events, people and situation get to them, but most of us end up feeling emotionally drained at the end of a work day.
Several years ago I was introduced to HeartMath, a type of biofeedback which teaches users to reconnect with their body and emotions through use of heart rate patterns. The effects are usually immediate and profound. Simple techniques are learned and practiced for as little as a minute or two a day. Doing this allows for reintegration of the underlying physiology of the cardiovascular, endocrine and nervous system. It balances you from the ground up. And living from a place of balance is what we could all use a little more of.
Some of the many health and emotional issues which can be addressed at their foundation by HeartMath: hypertension, stress/anxiety, depression, pain management, anger and emotional volatility, fatigue or feeling burned out, assistance in optimal weight management, better immune system response, and moving beyond a sense of overwhelm and inability to time manage.
Look for our announcements later the month as we will soon begin offering HeartMath training sessions, either as part of an office visit with Dr. Angela, or as a stand alone appointment. A short series of training is recommended, with daily practice done between weekly appointments. We are excited to be offering this simple, easy tool which addresses some of the most hidden and hard to treat illnesses.
After seeing the profound effects using HeartMath on patients and myself, I can't wait to being HeartMath sessions here at Rose City Health Clinic.
To your good health,
