Eating For Health

The energy of food

One of the basic principles of healthy eating is to understand the concept of the energy of food. This does not refer to modern day measurements of energy such as calorific value or the specifics of the vitamins or minerals in our food. Instead, the focus is on the unquantifiable energy components of our food – how it grows, how it is digested, even how it makes us feel when we eat it. Courses and individual sessions offer an understanding of how food can contribute to the ‘dis-ease’ within our bodies and how changing our diet could help in the healing processes.

Session information

Sessions will draw on Carole’s training in and personal experiences of:

– nutrition ( the science of food)

– macrobiotics (a diet of organic whole foods based on the Buddhist principles of balancing Yin and Yang)

– health issues and their corresponding pharmaceutical remedies

Included will be the setting of individual goals for a healthy eating lifestyle plan that not only works for you but also fits into your family life and within your budget.

It should be noted that while levels of perseverance and commitment are required, you will be introduced to techniques that can help you achieve your goals. In addition, support will be available whenever you need it.
