FOOD AS MEDICINE with Drew DiVittorio
October 11, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” —Hippocrates
Learn to thrive through healthy eating and enjoy a night of tea tasting.
Most of us realize that what we eat matters, but these days we face so much confusing and conflicting information, that it’s hard to know how to incorporate healthy eating into our lives without feeling bewildered, frustrated, or deprived.
Imagine if you could combine the best of ancient oriental medicine and modern nutritional science to help you not just feel better — but thrive.
Join us for Food as Medicine — a workshop series designed to show you how to improve your health and well-being.
Led by Drew DiVittorio, founder of the New York Institute of Herbal Medicine & Nutrition, this powerful 2-hour introductory class explores what is in the food we’re eating, and how eating what is right for your body type can aid in regenerating and detoxifying your body, strengthening your immune system, and preventing disease.
Through discussion accompanied by activities, such as sampling healthy medicinal teas, you will discover how the right nutrition can also help you:
- Treat common ailments, including allergies, digestive disorders, and cardiovascular problems
- Achieve healthy weight loss
- Promote longevity
- Reduce stress and regulate your mood and emotions
Nutritional goals more specifically geared toward you, your body, and your lifestyle can boost your energy, help you fight illness, enhance your clarity of mind, and bring you into greater balance with the world around you.
“Drew is extremely knowledgeable. He breaks down complex concepts and strategies into simple, digestible terms and examples – it’s such an awesome feeling when it clicks!”
—Jen, graduate of the New York Institute of Herbal Medicine & Nutrition
