Health & Wellness Workshops
Changes happen inside an aging body that makes it more difficult to
absorb some nutrients more than others. Discover the four vitamins
and a mineral that become increasingly important with aging and how
age associated muscle wasting threatens an older person’s independence
and quality of life. Learn about energetic aging and how changes in
diet combined with a good physical activity program can help us stay
healthy and active well into old age. This workshop will help you
make sure you are getting enough of the right types of activities
and all the “PowerFuel™” foods you need for energetic aging!
Building Better Bones
One out of four women and one out of eight men has osteoporosis in
Canada. Each year, 75,000 people break a bone because of the disease.
Why? Because of a lack of physical activities and poor food choices!
This workshop will show you how to strengthen your bones and slow
down the natural bone losses that occur with age. You will discover
the foods that leach calcium out of your bone bank and foods that
give you long-term calcium deposits with a high rate of return! You
will also get the latest update on the best foods and physical activities
for your bones’ health.
Walk Away from Diabetes
Over 2 million Canadians have diabetes and one third don’t know it.
In fact diabetes has become a leading cause of death by disease in
the Canadian population. If you are like many people you may think
that diabetes develops from eating too many sugary foods. You may
also think that you can control the condition by simply avoiding sugar
– but that is not the case. This workshop will show you how to incorporate
some key foods and activities into your lifestyle to help you to walk
away from diabetes.
