Program Description

Event Details

Are you interested in learning about alternative health care? Join coordinator, Dick Norred and other community members in a study group for an informal monthly discussion of a variety of topics on natural health on at 5:00 pm the 3rd Tuesday of every month in the library’s Founders Room. The primary focus of the group is to study the documented examples and scientific health benefits of local, GMO-free, organically grown, healthy, high nutrient food. A secondary focus may be on the health benefits of other healthy alternatives such as exercise, yoga, meditation, etc. As specific interests develop, the group will host 3-5 minute roundtable presentations by members. Then an outside speaker who is an expert in the field of health and nutrition, or a naturopathic doctor, would give a 30-minute presentation on a topic they are knowledgeable in.  Dick Norred will initially facilitate the group, however additional facilitators would be a welcome addition in the event that Dick is unable to attend on any given month.

For September's meeting, we will watch a 24-minute podcast by Dr. Mark Hyman, MD, and Dr. Elizabeth Boham MD, MS, RD, entitled "Optimize your Health and Wellness Today!" We will also view a 3:20 interview of Dr. Cass Ingram and then discuss Dr. Ingram's book on "Eat Right to Live Long". There will be a handout on how to improve your immune system for those who attend the meeting.
