Traditional Nutrition Considerations for the Modern Patient
Thursday, 10/25 at 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Considerations of diet and food preparation, which are having a direct impact on your patients' health and your treatment outcomes, are presented in this workshop. Sarica goes beyond the standard advice of eating organic, gluten-free, and so on, into the role of modern agriculture and food production methods. She will explore more deeply how simple, often overlooked techniques of ancestral food preparation such as soaking, culturing, and making broths can help to overcome many common digestive complaints in the clinic by introducing the use of predigestion.
Is nutritional guidance part of your care for your patients? It is a powerful way to help your patients help themselves, and support the good you do for them in the treatment room. However, if you have found that the standard suggestions to eat whole, organic foods, to read labels, avoid gluten, or apply paleo principles aren’t enough, this workshop is for you. Have you wondered how legumes, grains, and dairy, common components of the human diet, have become "off-limits" for many? Learn about the important methods of predigestion through traditional food preparation techniques, a missing link in the modern picture of health.
