Wellness Tip of The Month

Take a breath....Slow breathing, and meditative practices such as yoga and tai chi decrease stress hormones.  Stress hormones are known to elevate renin, a kidney enzyme that raises blood pressure.  Try 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes at night.  Inhale deeply and expand your belly.  Exhale and release all of your tension.








Health & Wellness Director:

Romi Ruiz  



I have been in the Health Care field for 23 years.  I am a Medical Assistant, certified in CPR, and am currently employed with St. Jude Medical Center as the Community Relations Specialist for the hospital.  I coordinate and attend health fairs, health related lectures, and community wellness events throughout North Orange County.  I promote education and wellness, including injury prevention to the community at large, including the underserved.  I am a certified Child Passenger Safety Technician, and have a special love for preventing unintentional injuries.  My goal is to promote wellness and to educate both tribal members and our local communities via mind, body and spirit.  I am here to serve. Please let me know what your needs and health concerns are, so that we can work together to gather and provide appropriate information to stay well, and live long, enriched lives with those we love.
