You just want to feel
like YOU again.
Luckily, you’re used to solving everyone’s problems (let’s be honest – you’re the go-to-person at work, your friends know you’re always there for them and you’re likely the only reason your partner has had clean clothes to wear since the early mid early-2000s – so, you have a problem and…
…pass the coffee…
You nailed it!
You’re in exactly the right place.
You might be a wee-bit or a lot-a-bit off course with your health but you’re here and that’s ALL that matters.
We are the KuRated Care Collaborative.
A women owned and operated Clinic located in Kingston, Ontario.
We support women, just like you, in achieving their highest health potential because we know that when women are well – we change the world.
Our team has over 35 years of combined experience in Women’s health – specifically dealing with complex chronic health concerns including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Acne, Eczema, Psoriasis, Weight Management, Hormone Health (PMS, PMDD, PCOS, Perimenopause, Menopause, Fibroids, Endometriosis, Fertility), Thyroid Conditions, Burnout, Anxiety, Depression, Migraines and Autoimmune Conditions among others.
Verb. To curate something is to carefully choose, arrange, and present different items in order to get a particular effect. In art, a term applied to someone in charge of selecting, arranging, and presenting material (for an art exhibition or museum).
How fitting considering healthcare is an ART and SCIENCE.
For centuries, the benefits of water and bathing in mineral rich waters at the spas has been practiced, especially in europe.
Come the 19th century, the buildings were usually separated by function — with the Trinkhalle, the bathhouse, the inhalatorium (for inhaling the vapors), and the Kurhaus or Conversationhaus that was the center of social activity. We are a care collaborative that believes strongly in the healing power of community and that – community care is the future of medicine.
In Germany, the tradition survives to the present day. ‘Taking a cure” (Kur) at a spa is generally covered to a large amount by both public and private health care insurance. Usually, a doctor prescribes a stay of three weeks at a mineral spring or other natural setting where a patient’s condition will be treated with healing spring waters and natural therapies. Most Germans are eligible for a Kur every two to six years, depending on the severity of their condition. Germans do still get paid their regular salary during this time away from their job, which is not taken out of their vacation days.
Sounds great, right?
Well…you can’t overnight with us just yet but you can join our community and experience the transformation of KuR for yourself.
KūRated living isn’t about a pristine house full with the smell of gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, home baked bread, white pants and puppies that don’t pee in the middle of the kitchen floor. It’s not a place at which you arrive. It’s living life – awake. It’s an acknowledgement that progress trumps perfection and community is queen. So long as each of us is making the moment to moment choices necessary to move us in the direction of health and happiness, we’re leaving our families, our communities and the world a better place than we found it.
What do we ask of you?
