October 25th: What on earth has happened to my food?!
The story of what has happened to our food supply matters more in understanding our health today than anything else. This story, when told properly, contains a collective answer for how and why we have become so sick and tired. It also contains the keys to becoming not sick and not tired. In this seminar Sonia will help you throw out the confusing notion of “healthy” and “natural” food and make it is easier to get back to the basics of what food is. You will learn how to shut out the noise of all the nonsense nutrition studies and click bait on social media and how discern between a sales pitch for supplements and sound nutrition advice. Along the way you will gain memorable insight into the relationship between the food you eat and headaches/migraines, diabetes, cholesterol, anxiety/stress, the post-lunch dip and the 4 pm drop.
Highlights of this foundational seminar:
With some help from Sonia the audience will reconstruct the “race up super food mountain” to prove to themselves that there is no such thing as healthy food
Lifting the veil of marketing and pointless nutrition studies via the concept of ‘parking lot science’ and ‘nutritionism’ you will realize that nutrition is not rocket science (and that’s the problem.)
To further enlighten, Sonia will dive a bit deeper to explore the damage that the compartmentalization of our body systems and organs, and the specific nutrients they need, has done.
