Naturopathic Medicine
   with Dr. Terra Winston
   sponsored by Ken Robertson
   ZOOM # 83/Hybrid #32
Dr. Terra Winston graduated from Bastyr University in 2016 and spent her first 4 years in practice at Evergreen Center for Integrative Medicine in Seattle, learning how to treat complex chronic illness (such as Lyme disease and long-haulers syndrome) and honing in her physical medicine skills. In early 2020 she relocated to her hometown of Wenatchee, WA to open a private practice specializing in regenerative and root cause medicine.
As a life-long athlete Dr. Winston has a passion for sports medicine and loves keeping athletes in the game. She believes hands-on therapy is essential when it comes to pain relief and is skilled in manual adjustments, craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, IV nutrient therapy and several injection techniques that encourage healing of damaged tissues that wouldnt normally heal on their own.   Learn more at the meeting.

Website definition/statement
Naturopathic medicine is a branch of medicine in which a variety of natural medicines and treatments are used to heal illness, using a system of medical diagnosis and therapeutics based on patterns of chaos and organization in nature.  It is founded on the premise that people are naturally healthy, and that healing can occur through removing obstacles to a cure and by stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities.
The foundations of health in natural medicine are diet,  nutrition , homeopathy, physical manipulation,   stress management, and exercise  .  READ MORE

Time to get in the game! With only six weeks left to procure items for this season’s For the Kids Wenatchee Rotary Auction, all teams and all divisions need to choke up those bats and bring in some taters, baggers, double baggers, triple baggers, and Grand Slams!
Jacksonville continues to dominate the league with $11,050 in items donated. Rookie Natalie Williams delivered this week with dining and golf at the Highlander to push Captain Joltin’ Joe St. Jean and his Jumbo Shrimp even higher atop the leader board.
While the Super Scampis are tops overall, their Red Apple (South) Division as well as the Orchard (Central) Division are drinking lukewarm buttermilk being served up by the three dynamic teams that make up the Springwater (North) Division. Springwater managed by “Jettison Jim” Brink had delivered the highest divisional total at $15,187. The top spot in the North has been a seesaw battle against Rachel “Stinger” Evey’s Sugarland Skeeters and Iron Man Iniguez’s Reno Aces, currently at $7,630 and $5,007 respectively. Tag you’re it, Ricardo! Also, look for DeRobles, The Destroyer’s Charlottesville Knights to play the spoiler in the North sitting on $2,550 in items procured.
Jacksonville shouldn’t get too complacent down South, as word is the Kala Czar and his Tacoma Rainiers are working on a New England trip to push their current total of $1,400 up there into the Jumbo Shrimp’s orbit. Meanwhile, we can never count out Ole Peters and St. Paul Saints, where Dancin’ Don Myers donated a handmade Adirondack chair this week, which will pair great with some fine Horan Estate wines acquired by teammate Mark “Cool Whip” Kulaas.
Meanwhile, the Orchard Division is led by Strike Z and his Albuequerque Isotopes with $3,530. We are getting reports that Captain Razzle Dazzle Rasmussen and his Lehigh Valley Iron PIgs are ready to “Release the Beast” and bring in the bounty acquired by Hall of Famer Leonard Singhose to send their total over the fences. He better get Slugger Singhose in play soon, because Jessi “Mad Dog” Mendoza has his El Paso Chihuahuas are nipping at Lehigh’s heels with only $75 separating the two teams (as we said last week, don’t bet against the underdog).
The score for all teams is about $35,500 in procurement items for the auction, and while a 350 average is bonkers on the ballfield, it is nowhere near the mark when the league’s goal is to bring in $100,000 in procurement. Keep in mind, what Yankee Great Yogi Berra said: “A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore!” So fire up those swings and let’s knock a few out of the park!
Don’t forget to get items to Pete, Mike or your team captain. These folks also have auction procurement slips or you can download the slips in both English and Spanish at
