Health & Wellness

Krista Lamereaux & Deborah Mizeur


Thursdays, March 21 – April 25 (six weeks) 4:15 – 5:30 pm

Learn fun, scientific, and historical ways of using food and herbs as medi- cines. Would it surprise you to know herbs, spices and food have been used as medicine for thousands of years? When using pepper at the table, are you aware it supports digestion and increases nutrient absorption from your food? The course will discuss how to assess the energetics of food and herbs (is it hot? Cold? Damp? Dry? Sweet? Salty? Bitter? Pungent?) and how these ener- getics interact with your physiology to create health and wellness. You will learn to use food, herbs and spices to enrich your life and heal your body. The course is based in history and science and will include hands-on learning.
