Education & Peer Support Group


Research shows that strong social connections help us to heal faster, maintain stronger immunity, lift mood and generally lead to a longer, healthier life. In this spirit, we host an educational peer support group. It is called “Blossom” to reflect our mission to help you thrive and achieve your best state of health, happiness and living your life’s purpose!

Whether you are learning how to follow a therapeutic diet for conditions such as diabetes, digestive problems, autoimmune disease, cancer or other conditions or just wanting to improve your lifestyle choices to support optimal health, chances are very good that you will improve your success (and enjoy the journey more!) if you share and learn from others.

Each session will provide a combination of education (provided by our team members and invited guest speakers) and also support, including time for participants to share challenges as well as insights and tips to learn from each other.

Topics are:

  • Making it Happen: Key Tips for Making & Sustaining Lifestyle Changes

  • Rising Above: Building Stress Resilience

  • Harnessing the Power of Food, and Detoxification

  • Optimizing Sleep for Healing

  • Movement for Fun, Energy, and Health

  • Connections: Healing and Health through Relationships & Community

For more information, contact our Blossom Coordinator Susan Benke at 925-658-0661 and/or your practitioner(s) at Pacific Integrative and Functional Medicine.

We hope to see you there!
