2021 Scrooge Christmas Toy & Food Drive
2021 Scrooge Christmas Toy & Food Drive, Monday, Dec 6th, 2pm

The Scrooge Christmas Toy & Food Drive collects toys & food for needy children of Hall County. Starting on November 27th (the Saturday after Thanksgiving) you can start bringing down your donations of unused toys and non-perishable food and place them under the gorgeous tree in the main lobby of the clubhouse. As many of you have seen in years past, the holiday spirit here at VDC is astounding and we fill the entire lobby with fantastic toys and food for needy families and children of Hall County. It is truly a moving experience.
 
If you don't have time to shop you can drop off checks or cash to the front desk. Checks can be made out to: Hall-Dawson CASA.
On Monday, December 6th, at 2PM, representatives from CASA and the Hall County Sheriff Department will collect all the donations, load them up, and distribute them to the families in need. Our Village Singers will be on hand to entertain us. Let’s make it even better this year!

Atlanta Integrative Wellness Center Seminar
 
Dr. Tedder will be here Thursday, December 16, 11am.
 
Dr Tedder is committed to sharing his insights with people and patients world-wide on how to create an optimal internal healing environment without the use of drugs or surgery. Dr Tedder is a well-known Upper Cervical Specialist. He has completed over 500 credit hours in formal post-doctorate training at the prestigious Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies in Neurology and the Knee Chest Upper Cervical Specific (KCUCS) Brain Stem Procedure and uses the most current knowledge within the fields of applied neuroscience, neurology, human physiology, spinal biomechanics, and wellness in clinical practice.
 
He will be speaking on laser treatment for Neuropathy.
 
LED Lights
Our LED lights increase circulation up to 400%. With Neuropathies, one of the major problems is that blood is not getting to the nerves in an adequate capacity. Blood carries oxygen, nutrients, and immunity to the area and unwanted products away. If your nerves do not get blood, they start to die. Infared therapy has been cleared by the FGDA for improving circulation and relieving pain and inflammation. LED lights are proven to increase blood flow which gives your body the ability to start the tissue and nerves repair process. 
 
Laser
When nerves get damaged, there is only one solution that is viable solution, the nerves must be fixed. In today's healthcare there are no surgeries or medications that will accomplish this. The only way this can happen is if you give your body the nutrients it needs to be able to accomplish the repair. Our laser aids the body 2 ways:
is stopping inflammation from accumulating and damaging the tissue is to aid the body in production of proteins and amino acids. The laser helps the body in the myelin sheath. 
 
Vibration
Falls are the #1 cause of death or serious injuries each year for people over 55. This occurs as the nerves related to balance and strength deteriorate or die and the muscles, soft tissues, and joints in the feet, knees, legs, hips, and low back gets weaker, atrophied, and damaged like yours right now. 
 
Please RSVP to the front desk.

If this is something that you are interested in doing please make your sign and drop it off at the clubhouse and the VDC staff will bring them over to the hospital.
