Wellness Tip of The Month


Regular walking lowers blood pressure, promotes better sleep and gives you more energy!  Regular walkers have fewer heart attacks and strokes, lower blood pressure and higher levels of HDL (healthy cholesterol) than non-exercisers.  And the reason is simple: Daily physical activity- including walking- can lower blood pressure and LDL (lousy choleserol), decrease the risk of many cancers and improve immune system function.  Plus, it improves quality of sleep and keeps you energized.  Yet another amazing perk: For every hour a person walks, she adds an hour to her life! 







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 a local hospital as the Community Relations Specialist.  I coordinate and attend health fairs, health related lectures, and community wellness events throughout North Orange County.  I promote education and wellness, which also encompasses 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.
