April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month


Aloha mai kakou and welcome to Aunty’s Health Minute brought to you by Hui Malama Ola Na `Oiwi — Helping all of Hawai’i Island Live Longer and Feel Better, Together.  I am Aunty Edna ….reminding you that April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Life as we know it today, can be very stressful. It’s easy to over-react while under pressure and make unhealthy choices.  Constant stress can affect our health and our ability to empower and support a longer, healthier lifestyle for our keiki and our `ohana. It is important to remember that you and I are role models for the generations that follow. Lead by example; maintain a positive attitude, exercise patience ….invest time and energy in teaching your keiki with love and understanding. Strength and knowledge will empower them to lead healthier lives throughout their lifetime.

Hui Mālama Ola Nā `Ōiwi… Helping all of Hawai`i Island Live Longer and Feel Better.

Find balance in life.


Aloha mai kākou, I am Po`okela Ikaika Dombrigues.  As the Native Hawaiian Lapa`au healer for Hui Mālama Ola Nā `Ōiwi and Hawai`i Island, I care about the health of our people.  I am concerned about the lifestyles we live today; many of us suffer with health issues in our `ohana.  Maybe we forgot how to keep balance in our lives and just don’t know how to resolve our issues.  Our ancestors understood the purpose of “Ho`oponopono” and its spiritual connection in healing the mind, body, and spirit.  At Hui Mālama, our Traditional Healing Program will help you find ways to care for self and `ohana.  Like— spend quality time with your `ohana, take a walk with nature, or get some ocean therapy!!


Let us help you re-connect with the things that matter….and help you regain balance in your lives.  For more information on island-wide Native Hawaiian Traditional Healing workshops, Lapa`au classes,  and one-to-one consults.  Call Hui Mālama Ola Nā `Ōiwi at 969-9220….Helping all of Hawai`i Island LIVE LONGER and FEEL BETTER!!
