Looking after your health

A seminar on how to use spices for health set for Feb. 27

The volunteer, medically-trained group working to help the community of Sooke learn how to prevent chronic degenerative diseases will meet with an audience again on the evening of Feb.27 at 7 p.m. This time, a two-part topic will be presented by Karam Barzekar of West Coast Natural Foods.

The first part is to learn of the importance of spices to health, to the prevention of inflammation, and to digestion. The second part of the information session conducted by Barzekar is: stress. Learn how to cope with stress and which imbalance in the body is the cause of stress. Learn how to reduce anxiety and depression naturally, without side effects. The menu is: soft tacos, non-gluten pizza, and seasonings and toppings. Oh, and don’t forget the carob cake for dessert, a hit last time. Call Dorothy Cannon to register by phone: 250-642-6053, or email at dmc11@shaw.ca
