PHASCO wellness program ready to kick off

Health and wellness program coming up

Patrick Rurka has been a practicing pharmacist for almost two decades and he has no doubt that medications are an important piece of the puzzle when it comes to the overall well-being of individuals.

But, medications are not the only piece of the puzzle, he said. “There is so much more,” he added.

Last year Rurka, who has a passion for helping people achieve their goals in a holistic way, successfully launched a program in Rimbey designed to help participants find a path to peace, happiness and abundance in all areas of their life.

PHASCO Health (peace, happiness, abundance, significance, connection and open heartedness) Growing Your Best You, is a 12-week program focusing on the 5A’s, assessing, awareness, acknowledging, action and actualization.

The program went over very well with close to 100 participants, receiving excellent feedback and Rurka is excited to offer it again this year.

“I believe that we could make Rimbey the healthiest community in Alberta by teaching the principles to as many people who will listen. People are feeling healthier, have lost weight and are feeling happier,” he said.

The program is tailored to help individuals achieve their goals by changing mindsets and removing barriers that have held people back.

By first identifying the emotional needs, the group is able to learn the appropriate tools and techniques needed to change their emotional state into a positive mindset.

People are encouraged to set their own goals.

Phasohealth has a vision of empowering people to grow into their truest potential by providing a path of peace, happiness and abundance.

Its mission is to develop a systematic series of learning tools for every day people which will educate and empower them and provide a roadmap to their personal happiness.

The next course begins on Sept. 18. Members of the Phascohealth staff are Patrick and Heather Rurka, Sharon Rennecke and Leanne Coleman.
