Be Your Own Doctor in Today’s Imperfect Health Care System
7:00-8:00PM | October 22, 2018
We are in a great mess with health care systems in the world, especially in the U.S. We are spending an increasing amount of money on it per capita, and we continue to have terrible health outcomes. Something we are doing is not right. Sadly, many of the diseases that the health care system is trying to manage are the products of lifestyle that could be avoided if we are educated on making better lifestyle choices earlier in life. Some of these key factors include what to eat, what not to eat, how to exercise and how to effectively handle stress.
In this class you will learn:
- How to make healthy lifestyle choices by going to the basics of eating wholesome foods including slow-digestive carbohydrates, low intake of proteins, and high quality fats.
- Why is refined soybean oil and high fructose corn syrup toxic for our body? Why is it widely used?
- The difference between conventional meats and organic grass-fed meat
- What is bio-individuality, and how you can enjoy eating healthy foods according to your choices.
- The importance of Primary Foods (Physical Activity, Relationship, Career, and Spirituality)
Samples of wholesome brown rice veggie/salmon rolls with pomegranate chutney along with refreshing cucumber water will be served. Complete recipes will be distributed to take home.
