On November 3, we’ll focus on: Nutrition
Nutrition is nourishment for the body and energy for the mind. Understanding the relationship between food and your body can lead to better choices and improved wellness.
Why, after all the great advancements in medicine over the past several decades are so many people dying from poor diet? Because medicine is not a substitute for nutrition. Research has consistently shown the importance of a good diet on your health, energy levels and longevity. What you ingest also affects your mental health. For example, you can adjust your serotonin levels by varying the amount of carbohydrates in your diet.
In this session, learn useful, practical tools and tricks for improving your nutrition.
