“Sourcing Health Locally” Is Topic of Conference

A conference on the connections between what we eat and how we feel is scheduled for September 16 from 8:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., at the Suzanne Patterson Center, Stockton Street. Admission is $48.

The event is a collaboration of The Suppers Programs and NOFA-NJ. It brings together doctors, farmers, and consumers to explore the issue. The catastrophic rise in potentially avoidable illness — from autism to Alzheimer’s, diabetes to heart disease, depression to mental illness — relates to changes in our environment and what and how we eat.

The solutions lie in close collaborations among the people who grow our food (and our immune systems), prevention-oriented health care practitioners, and eaters who have the power to choose delicious, whole, real food. Participants will come away with a practical understanding of how to avoid inflammatory diseases and prevent and reverse heart disease, cognitive losses, and dementia. The science will be presented in terms manageable for lay people. The solutions will manifest in the form of delicious, mostly locally sourced food – the food that heals.
