Let Food Be Your Medicine

The Father of Medicine said, “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food”. While traditional or “allopathic” medicine is barely a century old, the practice of natural medicine using nature’s pharmacy can be traced back through ancient civilizations. Plants have yielded many natural medicines that help us heal ailments without harmful side effects. Many herbs, spices and food used by our grandmothers still continue to work and do not have the toxic side effects of pharmaceutical compounds. This workshop will focus on everyday foods that change moods, have medicinal qualities, interfere with or aid digestion, increase or decrease inflammation and slow the aging process. Instructor: Dr. Shellie Fraddin

Come learn why the oldest continuously practiced medicine on the planet is still relevant now more than ever.
