JUNE 2013 Upcoming Programs
A Women's Health Series Lunch Break Seminar
Jennifer Raichlin, certified wellness coach with Waterfalls of Wellness Healing Center in Bristol, Tenn., is guest speaker for "Raw Food for REAL Health." Scheduled for Tuesday, June 11, 2013, at noon, location is the East Tennessee Room, D.P. Culp University Center.
For years it has been no secret that more fruit and vegetables in our diet are beneficial. Today many individuals have taken that concept to a new level in advocating a "raw foods diet." In fact, a diet rich in raw vegetables can lower your risk of breast cancer, while eating lots of fruit can reduce your risk for developing colon cancer. This growing movement is drawing Americans looking for overall well-being, purification, longevity, more energy, and a cure for diseases like chronic fatigue syndrome, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, and even cancer.
Raichlin's "raw foods" presentation centers on how raw eating is a very friendly eating philosophy for those with high blood pressure, diabetes, and Celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Her seminar outlines the basics of eating "raw" and the amazing health benefits that can be achieved.
