What Christmas Means to Us

Here’s what the StoneTree team is thinking about this Christmas…

“Christmas lights, the Grinch, tourtière, stockings full of wrapped presents, clementines, bubbles with canned peaches and an absolute belief in the “magic” of it. It is all the things that happen EVERY year no matter what that connect us as a family to all the generations that went before and all the ones to come.”
-Dr. Tara

“Family and food”

“Christmas for me this year has been all about another baby. .. a little bundle of LOVE named Lauren Isabel Thomas..born to my daughter Brooke and Andy in Toronto on Nov 22nd….. Christmases from now on will be very special.”
– Barb

“Quality time with family. Strangers being more ready with a smile. Believing in Santa… the spirit of Christmas. Snowflakes. Soft lighting. Cozy evenings.”
-Dr. Shelby

“FAMILY! Christmas Eve we sit and write a love letter to each member of our family. Relaxing in PJ’s on the couch in front of the tree at my parents log cabin in the woods. Chevy Chase Christmas Vacation, smoked salmon, snow, nature walks.”
-Dr. Kendra

“Christmas is about the Joy of Giving. The exhilaration from gifts of love, time, helping hands, cooking, as well as those under the tree. The smell of pine needles, turkey and stuffing. The sounds of laughter and traditional songs filling our homes with warmth. To be surrounded by so much love from family and friends…enough to carry you through until the next time.”

“The excitement, the anticipation, the overall warmth of generosity and human kindness in the air, and the sharing of family traditions with the next generation.”

With much love and best wishes to you and your family,
Merry Christmas from the StoneTree Clinic team.

It’s That Time! Using Your Remaining Benefits

For those of you with workplace benefits covering naturopathic medicine and other health services, now’s a great time to check to see if you have any unused coverage.

Most plans cover quite a wide range of StoneTree services, including:

  • Naturopathic consults–the appointments with your ND
  • Lab tests, like food intolerance analysis, blood tests, toxic metal screening, hormone testing, etc.
  • Treatments like IV therapies and colon hydrotherapy
  • Nutritional consults
  • Facial rejuvenation acupuncture with our resident skin wizard Dr. Kendra

There are still clinic spots in December to get it all done. Just contact the office at 705-444-5331 or feelbetter@stonetreeclinic.com and we’ll organize it all!

Food Bank Drop Off

Once again the team at StoneTree clinic will be collecting items for our local food bank.

As many of you know, gluten-free products and dairy alternatives can sometimes be very expensive. Imagine needing assistance with food and also having a child with celiac disease or a dairy intolerance–it’s an overwhelming situation, and often food banks don’t have many contributions that fit those needs.

This year, as in the past few years we will be trying to focus our attention on stocking up our local food bank to support those families.

Of course, we are also happy to accept any donation. This great little article gives some wonderful suggestions on what food banks need and want but never ask for–things like spices, feminine products, socks, toiletries and soup packets are all greatly appreciated.

You can drop off your items at the clinic (115 Hurontario Street, Suite  200, Collingwood, ON) from Monday to Friday until Christmas Eve at 1PM.

Happy holidays to all,

The StoneTree Team
