F.I.S.H. OF SANCAP and Lee Health Solutions is offering a community presentation, ‘Food as Medicine: Eating to a Healthier You,’ from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11 at Saint Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church, 2304 Periwinkle Way.
This workshop will teach participants how to enjoy an anti-inflammatory diet while resolving health concerns or diagnoses through a nutrition-focused approach. Anyone who has an inflammatory condition such as, but not limited to, arthritis, hypertension, high cholesterol, autoimmune conditions, gastrointestinal issues, or someone looking to prevent a condition would benefit from this presentation.
“Food is medicine and it is our belief to heal the body from inside out,” said Julie Hill, RD, LDN, IFMCP, Lee Health. “Healing the gut and dysfunction of other organs through nutrition can rapidly improve health, general well-being and improve disease states.
“The body may be capable of healing itself if we provide the correct environment, lifestyle and nutrients. At Lee Health, our mission is to heal your body, not just manage your symptoms,” she concluded.
Hill is a Registered Dietitian certified in Functional Medicine. Her current practice with Lee Health Solutions involves helping clients unwind and resolve their current health concerns or diagnoses through a nutrition-focused approach. Outside of one-on-one counseling, Hill presents lectures revolving around Functional Nutrition throughout the community.
“This final segment of FISH’s Health and Wellness Series stresses the importance of self-control and making everyone responsible for healthier outcomes,” said Kathy Y. Monroe, Program Director for FISH. “Simple tips will be provided to help improve the way to manage our health through diet.”
This seminar is open to the community and snacks will be provided. For additional information and to RSVP, contact Monroe or Anthony Morales at FISH, 239-472-4775.
