“A Business in Wellness and Lifestyle Management Services”
Janette Strong, Public Relations & Secretary, IB SIG
My name is Janette Strong and I am the Public Relations person of IB SIG. The reason I became an RPN is the same reason why I also got into nursing in an independent practice setting and business. I felt that the public needed access to specialty health promotion/disease prevention strategies that were not being met within the OHIP funded healthcare system, but at the same time could benefit from a regulated healthcare provider like a nurse.
Since 1992 I have provided wellness and lifestyle management services and up until November 2018 in the specialty of colon hydrotherapy. My current clinical practice has been affected by the COVID-19 restrictions, so currently I do nutritional, diet and lifestyle consulting as it relates to an individual’s genetic profile. This can be done via phone and online. Any health concerns beyond the nursing scope of practice will be addressed by working collaboratively with naturopaths, medical doctors and other allied healthcare practitioners to create a coordinated plan of care for clients so they can achieve optimal health and wellness.
I hope to teach Tai Chi exercise for health and stress management and offer Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) for the management of pain and a broad variety of health conditions once COVID-19 restrictions are removed.
The most important thing I do for clients is to educate and empower them so that they have control of their health with the knowledge and tools to stay optimally well. I keep myself up to date with the latest scientific research as it relates to health promotion and disease prevention in my area of practice to create an integrated natural health approach for my clients...nurses included!
