January Show

Sun., Jan. 14, 2-4 pm, free

Join us for refreshments and meet our featured artists, Renee Habibi and Shelley Lebel. Renee enjoys the bold vivid color of oil painting, but has also created work in many media including clay and wood sculpture and watercolors. For the past three years, she has been drawing and painting with liquid inks. Her inspiration is nature in its many colors and forms.

Shelley is best known for her mixed media whimsical style and sense of humor. She dabbles in many mediums, techniques and substrates but continues to be drawn to bright colors, bold lines and simple designs.

21-day Sugar Detox info session with Holly Morello

Wed., Jan 17, 7 pm, Leedy Grange Hall, 835 NW Saltzman

Join me for a free info session for the 21-Day Sugar Detox program. Those in attendance will receive a special discount for my upcoming group that is starting on January 31. Classes will be at 7 pm and will run Wednesdays through March 7.

As a long time citizen and contributing member of the Cedar Mill community, I am pleased to introduce my practice, Nourishing Excellence Nutritional Therapy, LLC, which opened in 2013 and been steadily growing. As a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, my passion is to inspire hope and to empower my clients to heal themselves by applying a mind-body-spirit approach in helping them overcome a variety of chronic health challenges that are impacting their lives.

One of the foundational approaches I take with new clients to help them improve their symptoms is to guide them through an anti-inflammatory diet, which is also powerful in helping them manage blood sugar imbalances. The impact of too much sugar is far reaching—most people are surprised how much sugar they are actually consuming because it’s in nearly all processed foods labeled with all sorts of names besides sugar!

In February, I will be guiding participants through The 21-Day Sugar Detox (21DSD) using the book, The 21-Day Sugar Detox Daily Guide by Diane Sanfilippo as our text. As a holistic nutritional therapy practitioner, what I love about the 21DSD is that it teaches you how to bust sugar and carb cravings naturally by incorporating nutrient dense whole foods that are delicious!

Curious? You can download The 21-Day Sugar Detox Official Program Rules for free here: Also, the author, Diane Sanfilippo will be at the Bridgeport Barnes & Noble on February 9th at 7 pm – I’d love it if you’d join me there!

For more information, contact Holly Morello, NTP, at and 971-279-8181.

World Of Smiles Pediatric Dentistry Grows Up

World Of Smiles was founded in the Cedar Mill area by Dr. Michelle Stafford in 2008, and has since expanded into North Portland. Now World of Smiles is growing up with the addition of a dedicated teen clinic! The new office is located in Suite 220, just across the hall from our West side location, allowing parents to continue scheduling their teens with younger siblings at the same time.

This transitional practice will focus on preventative care for teens and young adults, including regular cleanings, exams, x-rays, and sealants. The office will continue to offer nutritional counseling as well as acting as a resource on the dangers of tobacco and marijuana use and other teen issues. In addition to basic care and hygiene, the clinic will treat small fillings, and provide some extractions. Only once their dental needs regularly exceed this scope with concerns like root canals, aesthetic crowns, and third molar extractions will it prove necessary to find those young adults a new dental home with a referral to a trusted provider.
