Joy Feldman’s Free Nutritional Workshops for Women
Monday, January 02, 2012
Each month, beginning on January 12th, and ending on June 14th, Rhode Island nutritional consultant, writer and lecturer Joy Feldman will offer free workshops on nutrition at the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation in Pawtucket. The series, sponsored by the foundation, is being offered free of charge to everyone living with breast cancer. The sessions are designed for healthy women who want to maintain good health, women who are facing the challenges of illness; and women who that have survived cancer and want to change their lifestyles to have a healthier future.
The series, called, "Are You in Pursuit of Good Health?" will feature six workshops on related topics.
January 12 - Taking Control of Your Health - The First Step
An overview of nutrition balancing and how to take back control of your health by gently balancing the body.
February 9 - Debunking the Myths Around Food - Food for Thought
Which foods are best? Are you confused and unclear? Plus, what foods to avoid and how to remove problem foods from the diet.
March 8 - What's Cooking? - Making a Great Dinner!
Making fresh juice and learning about the benefits of juicing vegetables. Then comes making a full meal - entree, veggy and dessert.
April 12 - Complimentary Modalities
Learn about meditation, sauna therapy, and castor oil packs - ancient traditions that benefit mind and body.
May 10 - Supplements - To take or not to take?
June 14 - Maintaining Optimal Health
How to implement what you've learned and integrating new behaviors into your lifestyle.
All classes will run from 6:30-8pm and while the program is offered at no charge, advanced registration is necessary so there are sufficient supplies and accommodations for the class. Individuals are encouraged to attend all six classes but are also free to just choose those that interest them.
Feldman is the author of two books. Joyful Cooking in the Pursuit of Good Health is a cookbook based on the science of nutritional balancing and contains many recipes and reference information. Her new book for young children, Is Your Hair Made of Donuts?, comes out in March, in time for National Nutrition Month. Feldman reads to children at schools, libraries and after school programs to encourage children to make healthier choices in a world tempting them with junk food. Feldman also maintains an active nutrition counseling practice based in North Kingstown at the Wickford Chiropractic & Wellness Center. She and her husband, Michael, who is an orthopedic surgeon, have two children, and live in East Greenwich.
"I know what I went through with my own health crisis with an auto immune disease that left me nearly disabled, so I am excited to give back and help others," Feldman says. "We will inspire motivate, and educate - cutting through the confusion, together, about health, healing and a state of wellness."
