The Medicinal Effects of Good Nutrition   

In-Person Class:  The Elderwise classroom at the Vineyard Church.

There are many reasons why we should pay attention to what we eat. Good nutrition is very important for our health, and maintaining a fine balance of nutrients is what helps us stay healthy. The processed foods many of us frequently and repeatedly consume may be convenient and tasty, but they can, and often do, compromise our health. Do you want to learn more about how good nutrition can make a big difference in your health? Are you interested in knowing about the DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) and whether fish oil supplements really help lower your cholesterol? Are there any health benefits in consuming garlic and ginger? Join us for this class to learn more about how food acts as medicine – not only to maintain health and wellbeing, but to prevent and treat disease.
