Keynote: It is no mystery that we are what we eat. While consumers at large (and even conventional medical wisdom) are starting to recognize the critical role food plays in a person's health outcome, there remains a disconnect between the foods we choose and how we feel. Culinary Nutrition pioneer, Stefanie Sacks, MS, CNS, CDN explores why this disconnect exists, how we can begin to change it and the role that food can ultimately play in preventing illness and restoring health.
Introductory topic: Stress has been proven to play a significant role in many health concerns – from asthma to migraines, cancer to heart disease, and even diabetes. Believe it or not, the way you think about your life affects your stress level – and therefore your health. Certified Stress Management Coach Colette Ellis will guide you to recognize your stress “triggers,” and include simple stress reduction habits (like meditation & affirmations) into your daily routine so you can be more resilient, and live a healthier life with less tension and anxiety.
