After a year of cleaning up, restructuring and tending to family, CREWC will re-open this fall with programs on health, healing and sustainability; spaces to rent for holistic health practitioners and workshops; an online store; and a holistic assessment service.

For those of you who haven’t visited Carp Ridge EcoWellness Centre, it’s on 190 acres of rocky wilderness overlooking the Carp River valley, about thirty minutes northwest of downtown Ottawa. Trails wind through magical wetlands filled with wildlife. White pines, ash, spruce and ironwood are home to songbirds, hawks and owls. There is a holistic clinic, a learning centre, a yurt, two straw bale cabins, a pond cabin and three colourful office cabins as well as two tents on platforms, each with their own woodstove and composting toilet which practitioners can rent for treatments or workshops. A large deer-fenced garden awaits planting and is growing wild medicinal herbs in the meantime…

Over these last eighteen years we have run programs ranging from holistic family retreats to professional development courses for doctors of all stripes. CREWC hosted the first Forest School in North America, which continues in the form of Ridgewoods Outdoor Programs for 3-6 year old children run by experienced teacher Sara Raeesi.

However, the central activity at CREWC has been the Carp Ridge Natural Health Clinic, now simply Carp Ridge EcoWellness Centre, where many conditions were treated, including cancer. For several years we also offered a Healing House where patients could stay, be nourished with healthy food according to their body type and condition, and cared for by a team of holistic practitioners.

The results we saw amazed even ourselves. After starting to use a new concept of disease and healing called German New Medicine, we witnessed many cancer patients recovering without their treatments. In ten years we saved our provincial health insurance (OHIP) over two million dollars. Now we would like to put our experience into programs to pass on this extraordinary knowledge, both to the public and other health care practitioners.

Starting this fall after an open house in September, there will be classes such as meditation, body types & cooking; health assessment services; and products for health, healing and a sustainable lifestyle. We will begin offering monthly healing circles by donation in the village of Carp to introduce the idea of emotional work being as important as diet, exercise and adequate sleep. And I’m pleased to announce that the Ask a Naturopathic Doctor column will restart in Tone! Please email your questions to katherine@ecowellness.com.

After 16 years we are coming to the end of an era as Carp Ridge Natural Health Clinic closes its doors August 30, 2014 with the exceptions of the IV Therapy Suite and the practice of Leesa Kirchner, ND, FABNO, who will remain at Carp Ridge until October 31, 2014.. Katherine will be taking some much deserved time off to rest, write, and focus on her family. The plan is to rent the clinic building as a residential home, and keep the tents, cabins and yurts available for practitioners to have some healing spaces. Sara will be moving the Ridgewoods School back into the Learning Centre building, but it will also remain an option for rentals on evenings and weekends.

If you are interested in renting a cabin, yurt, tent, home or Learning Centre building please contact Lori at 839-1198 x305 or lori [at] ecowellness.com

We welcome you to join us for fun, food and information at our final Annual Open House, Saturday June 21 from 11am to 1pm. There will be activities for the kids and nutritious snacks.
