Talk Focuses on Cancer Prevention
Mar 31, 2014 06:12PM
Holistic health coach and Reiki master Natalie Benoit leads a discussion, Nutrition for Cancer, from 7 to 9:30 p.m., April 30, at The Atrium, in Greendale. The talk will emphasize nutrition’s role in preventing and possibly reversing chronic disease.
According to Benoit, one in three women and one in two men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, and nutrition is a key factor in regaining and maintaining health. Her talk will help sort out conflicting and unclear information about diets, including which foods contribute to disease and which help prevent illness.
“We are just beginning to understand how food literally communicates to cells in our bodies, and that even given our genetics or predisposition to disease, we have the ability to turn those genes on or keep those genes off. Our ability to heal is far greater than we’ve been permitted to believe,” comments Benoit, who owns Natalie Benoit, Reiki & Wellness, an alternative, complementary and functional medicine practice with locations in Greendale and Brookfield.
