"The Wisdom of Eating Traditional Foods" with Dr. Liz Lipski, PhD, CCN, CHN


Since the beginning of human time people have passed knowledge about food, cultivation, and cooking methods down through generation after generation. Ancient wisdom enhanced mineral and nutrient bioavailability. Food and medicine were interwoven. Foods that were eaten were in harmony with our own biology. Since the industrial revolution all of this has changed, so that now what most of us consider to be food would be unrecognizable to George Washington or Dolly Madison. In traditional cultures, balancing health with lifestyle was a core belief. The diseases of modern civilization were rare. This session will focus on the wisdom of traditional foods. We'll also look at the health benefits when even small amounts of these foods are added back into the diet. Liz Lipski, PhD, CCN, CHN, is board certified in Clinical Nutrition & Holistic Nutrition.
