Southern Appalachian Wisdom with Phyllis D. Light
February 1 - 3, 2013
How Magical that Phyllis will be joining us on the Candlemas weekend as we celebrate all forms of Light.
Friday, February 1, 9 - 5pm
- Signs of the Times: Astrology for Health
Earth, Water, Air and Fire. The Signs in the Heavens and the four elements can serve as traditional guideposts for health and prosperity. The core principle of health astrology is based on assignment of Zodiac signs and heavenly planets to different parts of the body. Understanding the diseases that come under the influence of planetary changes and the herbs which fall under auspicious signs can be an integral aspect of a health plan. Join Phyllis in an exploration of the 12 signs, the 4 elements and their influence on the body and on health.
This can be taken separate from the weekend for a fee of $125. Please pack a lunch. Herbal teas and class materials provided.
Saturday & Sunday, February 2 & 3, 2013
- Food Is Medicine
There are so many questions around today’s recommended diets – Paleo, Gluten-free, Low Carb and on and on. Join Phyllis as she discusses the functions of the major vitamins and minerals and their food sources – the true source of sustainable medicine. She will also discuss how various nutrients interact with the systems of the human body or specific body tissues. Which nutrients are needed for the Krebs Cycle? How does fibromyalgia affect nutritional status? What role does vitamin C play in reducing the effects of Chronic Fatigue, arthritis, and cardiovascular disease? In essence, we'll look at ways nutrients can make deliberate improvements in health by addressing chronic diseases or conditions, a Functional Medicine approach. And we'll identify the food and plant sources of these nutrients and look at balanced weight management.
