• Food as Medicine
The fundamentals of mindful consumption as a source of healing. Learn the ancestral wisdom of using food as medicine and modern ways to heal your body through nourishing dietary choices. Health, sustainability and our global environment are not only interrelated, but inseparable. This presentation aims to integrate holistic preventative nutrition with responsible practices. By maximizing edible nutrients and engaging in close-to-home community collaboration, chronic disease and mortality can be reduced. Although the concept that local foods and herbs have medicinal value predates our modern civilization, we are being called to find innovative ways to cultivate our gardens and practice integrative home-based healing by returning to the root of nourishment, restoring balance, and remembering respect for the Earth's natural resources.

The ancient Chinese healers devised a fascinating system for creating balance in the body, based on five primary elements, each relating to an organ and emotion.

• Travel Illness Prevention
The last thing you need when travelling with family or on a solo adventure is to be burdened by illness and miss out on days (or weeks) of scheduled plans. Save time, money, and avoid "Montezuma's Revenge" by following a few simple guidelines and keeping a preventive 1st aid/digestive kit on hand.

• Movement of Qi- Exploring DaoYin
Every day, hundreds of thousands of Americans are diagnosed with diseases related to stress and stagnancy. Instead of becoming one of these statistics, learn to open your Meridian channels, activate Chakras, circulate blood and lymph, and move the "Qi" or Prana life force energy throughout your body to prevent injury and illness.
