The brightness of the days is slowly on its way back, and an excellent way to get into tune with this is to brighten up your body with the "A Better Me: How to Start Living a Healthier Lifestyle Holistically" series at Whole Foods Market in Downtown Detroit. Located at 115 Mack Ave, Detroit, Michigan, nestled in an easy to find section of the city, this course promises to provide the participants with insightful and useful information designed to assist them on their Path to self responsibility for their own health choices.
As many are turning toward the more whole person based level of care that holistic medicine can provide in the Pagan Community, it is wise to always remember that, as The Pagan Path wisely notes
"Holistic healing methods are designed to assist in treating the 'whole' person and not just the physical ailment most medical treatments deal with"
And so, those needs that the Spirit may have that go beyond the hospital room or doctor's office are just as vitally important to overall health. Daily practices of meditation, herbal washes, and whatever agreed upon plan that you and your Naturopath may found are all part of the bigger picture. Local sources for fresh foods, non gmo, are around, so it is up to each of us to do the homework necessary to take part in our own care.
Attending learning opportunities is part of that overall regimen. Series such as the one coming up are not plentiful, and it is highly desirable to take advantage of them when they come.
Those who attend will get to engage with speakers about
- Natural Herbal Remedies
- Ayurvedic Information
- Smoking Cessation with acupuncture
- Senior Health
- Self Wellness
The event is free, and open to everyone, however space is limited and it is strongly suggested that preregistration through Eventbrite be completed in order to secure a space. The organizers promise a forum where you will
