Drew DiVittorio, Dipl, (NCAAOM)
The amount of nutrition information available today is overwhelming, but this workshop will break it down and show you how to optimize your health through the food you eat. Combining ancient Chinese Medicine principles with modern nutritional science, Drew DiVittorio, founder of the New York Institute of Herbal Medicine & Nutrition, will explain how food can:
- treat ailments including allergies, digestive and immune disorders, respiratory, and cardiovascular problems
- support healthy weight loss
- alleviate chronic pain
- reduce stress
- regulate your moods and emotions
- promote longevity and well-being
Each session will include lecture and hands-on activities, sample medicinal herbal teas, and healing recipes. Nutritional needs and goals vary among individuals, so Drew will assess participants individually and help you design a personalized diet and herbal program.
You will come away with an understanding of how food affects, supports, and can heal your body and prevent disease, a personalized diet plan, as well as simple delicious recipes to support your health and well-being.
