“Anti-Inflammatory DIAITA: Diet & Lifestyle” Workshop, 11 March 2017, London

Slide1

Following our last successful meeting on Anti-Cancer DIAITA, in this multi-dimensional workshop, I will expand on ways to reduce inflammation in the body, the primary cause of many diseases such as cancer, heart disease, auto-immune diseases, depression etc.

I will explore Science, Medicine and Ancient Wisdom to find the available knowledge and understanding offered to us to create an anti-inflammatory way of living.

Anti-Inflammatory DIAITA combines:

• foods, herbs and spices

• ways of eating and fasting

• types of exercises (natural and unnatural)

• meditation

• ways to deal with stress & anxiety & improve sleep and

• a connection with other people, the environment & something higher than us!

Connect with others in a friendly environment which invites questions and offers answers to a modern problem of an ‘inflammatory life’ that affects us all.

Learn about healthy meals, herbal remedies and easy recipes to use in your daily life.

Explore philosophy, spirituality and try meditation to connect with your body.

“DIAITA Against Cancer: Diet & Lifestyle Dodecalogue” Workshop

Slide1slide1

In this ANTI-CANCER DIAITA workshop, for World Cancer Day on the 4th of February, I’m going to dispel the myth that there is nothing people can do about cancer. Research shows that, with a healthier diet and lifestyle a third of the most common cancers can be prevented.

 

DIAITA, the ancient Greek word meaning “Way of Living”, is where the word DIET comes from.

I am going to draw on evidence, knowledge and wisdom from Modern Medicine, Aurveda, Philosophy & Spirituality, to show that with the right DIAITA it is possible to: 

  • prevent cancer
  • reduce the side effects of cancer treatment and
  • improve quality of life in cancer survivors

I will give you my Dodecalogue for cancer prevention.

You can join me either in London on the 28th of January 2017 or in Kozani-Greece on the 13th of February.

Along with an interesting discussion, you will be offered ideas for cooking (“anti-cancer recipes”) and some delicious anti-cancer snacks, prepared by chef Mariana Ivanova.

Cost: £25 per person

Venue: Woolman room, 8-9 Hop Gardens, London WC2N 4EH

Nature – the Primary Medicine for Health & Way of Being

Slide1

‘Come forth into the light of things, Let Nature Be Your Teacher’. William Worsdworth’s call to be immersed in Nature comes with a promise of a deeper understanding of life and of ourselves. In this Health-Being meeting we will explore what we can learn from Nature for our Health and our Being, but also how in the modern world, our relationship with her has created problems and challenges that we cannot afford to ignore.

Some say: ‘what use is Nature in the 21st century’? We simply reply that: the air that we breathe, the water that we drink and the soil in which we grow our food determine our existence. Nature can provide us with many products to sustain and support our physical, emotional and spiritual balance. What did Hippocrates mean when he wrote: ‘a physician is first and foremost Nature’s helper’? What natural resources can we use safely to help ourselves in times of good or ill health? And what can we give back to our Mother Nature, so that she doesn’t get emptied from the energies that we so much depend on? How can we make sure that we use and not abuse our natural environment given the inextricable connection it has with human health?

If we look and listen carefully to Nature’s geometry and language, we will understand everything better. This isn’t just a ‘trend’. Our future and the future of our children depends on it.
