The ETMS Approach to a Healthy Diet

With the advent of a growing scientific field of study called nutrigenomics, the old adage “you are what you eat” is proving to be much more than folk wisdom. Nutrigenomics takes into consideration the relationship between diet and genetics, and identifies the beneficial or detrimental health effects of various dietary components. To take this even further, the ETMS approach considers foods best matched to a person’s unique individual constitution as well as the energetic qualities of certain foods for nourishing inward and outward vitality. Learn about specific foods that support the main organ systems and discover the top super phytonutrient-rich foods and their specific cancer inhibiting targets and mechanisms. Featured recipes will emphasize seasonal and wild foods for health promotion including; medicinal smoothies, immune-enhancing soups, juices, and simple teas, as well as spices and culinary herbs that add flavor to your food while supporting your cancer defense capability.

This talk will be held at Rogue Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 87 4th St, Ashland.

No registration necessary.

Contact Gretchen Phillips with questions (541) 552-5454.
