Eating a Plant Based Whole Foods Diet
Recently I spent three weeks at the Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida, and participated in the Life Transformation Program. What an amazing experience! I am convinced that this place is a valid potential model of the hospital of the future where people really heal, and medications are not used to mask symptoms that are speaking to us to tell us what is out of balance in our inner ecosystems. Through their educational programming, serving delicious raw vegan food, and exercise and therapeutic opportunities, they teach each individual how to take charge of their own health and move forward in their lives as joyful, fulfilled spirits. It is a wonderful journey to be on, this life!
Come join us this coming Monday, April 2, 2012, in the downstairs program room of the Monroeville Public Library to see the film Forks Over Knives and learn about the advantages of eating a plant based whole foods diet. Elisa Beck for Sustainable Monroeville-- Join us on Facebook!
