Dr. Sarah Axtell

Dr. Sarah Axtell

Dr. Sarah Axtell, naturopathic doctor and owner of Lakeside Natural Medicine, will lead Food for Thought–Nutrition and Brain Workshop, aimed at helping people enhance memory and focus, eliminate brain fog and improve mood, from noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 2 at Tosa Yoga. Workshop attendees will hear a lecture on foods, nutrients and lifestyle tactics that can optimize brain function; enjoy cooking demos, tastings and recipes; have their questions answered by a naturo-pathic doctor; and have the opportunity to purchase professional-grade supplements.

“The food you eat directly affects your ability to focus, remember and maintain a balanced mood,” Axtell explains. “With Alzheimer’s, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Parkinson’s and mood disorders on the rise, it is time to safeguard yourself against cognitive decline and neurological disease with your diet and lifestyle.”

Axtell is a naturopathic doctor providing holistic health and wellness services for the whole family. She focuses on many health conditions such as digestive disorders, auto-immune disorders, weight-loss resistance, food sensitivities and hormone imbalances. She is passionate about using food as medicine with her patients.

Cost: $50; pre-registration required. Location: 6734 W. North Ave., Wauwatosa. For more information or to register, call 414-828-7555 or visit www.TosaYoga.com.
