“Let thy Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food.”
—Hippocrates, the founding father of modern medicine

With nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives, and our tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what’s wrong with our malnourished bodies, it’s no wonder that modern society is getting sicker. It is time to challenge the trillion-dollar worldwide “sickness industry” and give people some scientifically verifiable solutions for overcoming illness naturally. With access to better information, people invariably make better choices for their health.

Swami Omkarananda and local holistic health practitioners lead a discussion to sort out the fictions from the facts of managing your own health. We need to rethink the belief systems fed to us by our modern medical and health care establishments: not every problem requires costly, major medical attention, and there are many alternative therapies that can be more effective, more economical, less harmful and less invasive than conventional medical treatments.

Come join the conversation!

We suggest you view the documentary Food Matters before this session. The filmmakers have interviewed several leading experts in nutrition and natural healing who claim that not only are we harming our bodies with improper nutrition, but that the right kinds of foods, supplements, and detoxification can be used to treat chronic illnesses as fatal as terminally diagnosed cancer.
