 Building a Healthy Nutritional Foundation is the start to all healthy lifestyles.  The saying “your house is only as strong as the foundation it is built upon” also applies to the human body.  This class will discuss the basic nutrients we should all be getting in our healthy eating plan and how to get them from the foods we are eating so that we can build that strong foundation. In addition, we will discuss using foods as “preventive medicine”.   Numerous examples of foods we can incorporate into our healthy eating plans will be offered, explained and tasted.

For example, did you know that Sesame Seeds offer a wonderful, highly digestible form of calcium – better than diary?  We will also discuss “Health Destroyers” which we will work on eliminating from our diets.  In addition, we will discuss the current state of our food supply, GMOs, exercise, and mental emotional effects on health and various health tips.

This class will discuss the need to detox the body.
Just like your car gets clean oil, we need to clean up our body.  Out with the old, and in with the new.   Our bodies are continually regenerating and we need to make sure our “regenerating organs” are working at their optimal levels.  There are many forms of detoxing at all different levels.  We will cover the basics all the way to intense detox programs.  It’s all about the colon, liver, kidney and bladder!  Get ready to learn how to do some housecleaning on the cellular level!
