The Art of Nutrition

The field of diet and nutrition has developed rapidly in recent years; today a multibillion dollar ‘wellness’ industry that polarises both public and medical opinion.

Is nutrition a quack science promoting over-priced-under-effective supplements and exotic imported ‘superfoods’? Or does it hold the answer to a health system in dire need of more effective curative protocols?

Science is objective by definition; the subject of nutritional science however, the human being, is not; it is organic, emotional and difficult to comprehensively classify. For the data we can be grateful, for we are better served when we have access to information. Interpretation however, and making the information relevant to individual health and wellbeing, is an art.

This workshop is a practical introduction to the foundational principles of diet and nutrition, designed to be informal yet informative, and includes a comprehensive manual with advice and guidance for sustainable eating practices that protect digestive health without compromising the joy of food!

The Anatomy of Stress

The term ‘stress’ refers to any physical, mental or emotional stimulus that alters the way we perform, think or feel. Change, whether good or bad, is stressful. Worry also brings about stress; indeed, stress is an unavoidable part of daily life.

Some people handle stress relatively well and it has little obvious impact on their health. Others can be negatively affected by stress, leading to symptoms of fatigue, headaches, irritability and low self-esteem; plus, elevated blood pressure, loss of appetite and gastrointestinal disorders.

Prolonged stress promotes inflammation of body tissues. Although inflammation is a normal aspect of human physiology, too much can cause harm and compromise immunity.

This workshop showcases the biochemical processes of stress on the body; and helps participants to identify areas of stress in daily life, assess the effects on wellbeing, and prioritize where to reduce or remove stress through dietary modifications, physical exercise, breath work and meditation.
