DescriptionDesigned to address the underlying causes of chronic debilitating conditions and empower attendees to create lasting change in their health, the Sedona Women's Healing Immersion will showcase an impressive line-up of instructors, including renowned immunologist and practitioner of Lifestyle Medicine, Dr. Saray Stancic, subject of the forthcoming breakthrough documentary, “Code Blue: Redefining the Practice of Medicine.” Representing a variety of healing disciplines, the instructors will provide inspirational guidance from different evidence-based medical, psychological, nutritional, spiritual and creative practices that enhance long-term wellness. The registration fee ($1,495 for a shared casita and $1,735 for a private casita) includes the program, room, three delicious healthy meals each day, all class materials and books. A limited number of private sessions with the instructors will be available at a discounted rate.

The first presentation of the retreat will be “Lifestyle Medicine: Unleashing the Power of Self-Care,” by Dr. Stancic, who is triple board-certified in Internal Medicine, Infectious Diseases and Lifestyle Medicine. Dr. Stancic’s personal journey began when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in her third year of residency. After five years of scrupulously following her doctors’ protocols, she was confined to a wheelchair. Dr. Stancic became inspired by several studies that she found in peer-reviewed medical journals detailing the link between diet and chronic health conditions. She discontinued her medications and focused on changes to her lifestyle, which included adopting a whole-food, plant-based (WFPB) diet, regular exercise, committing to a meditative practice and incorporating techniques to get restorative sleep. Remarkably, her symptoms began to improve and after just 2 ½ years she was able to dance with her husband at a wedding. Subsequently, after five years of being faithful to these lifestyle changes, she was able to run a marathon after years of struggling to walk unassisted. Since then, she has become an advocate for WFPB living and is the founder of Stancic Health and Wellness, an innovative medical practice that aims to educate and empower patients to achieve optimal health through better nutrition and lifestyle changes. In 2018, Dr. Stancic was appointed Chief Medical Officer for WellStart Health, a digital, team-based intensive lifestyle change program. Her mission is to spread the power of Lifestyle Medicine on a global scale and spark much-needed change in the training of physicians.

Wednesday evening will also feature a welcoming meditation led by Ilchibuko Todd, who has spent over a decade mastering Universal Qi energy. Her passion is sharing the ancient prescription of mindfulness, meditation and movement to awaken the healing power within. She will conduct other sessions throughout the retreat, including an evening Full Moon Meditation and Release Ceremony. Each day will conclude with a restorative sleep preparation exercise.

Other medical aspects of healing will also be addressed by Dr. Diana Mendoza, a board-certified Naturopathic M.D. in Arizona, and Michelle Boyer, PA-C, one of Northern Arizona’s leading providers in the area of chronic pain management. Inspired by her belief in the power of the human body to revitalize itself, Dr. Mendoza will be speaking about nutrition as a way of healing from the inside out, giving specific practical tips on how simply changing the preparation of foods can target different areas of healing. She will also be providing acupuncture sessions throughout the retreat. With more than 17 years of experience in pain medicine, neurological care and spine care, Michelle Boyer has established herself as a pioneer in the cutting-edge field of
