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.

Rurka, who has a passion for helping people achieve their goals in a holistic way, has launched a program in Rimbey that is 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. Members of the Phascohealth staff are Patrick and Heather Rurka, Sharon Rennecke and Leanne Coleman.

The first program recently finished with around 60 participants.

Rurka said it went very well and he was encouraged by the participation and the positive feedback.

“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 their emotional needs, participants are able to learn the appropriate tools and techniques needed to change that emotional state into a positive mindset.

People are encouraged to set their own goals.

Phascohealth 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 April 11. For more information check out ad on the Health and Wellness page in this edition of the Rimbey Review. treena.mielke@rimbeyreview.com
