February 20, 2006
Alternative treatments for inflammatory diseases, chronic fatigue, cancer, diabetes and other modern ailments will be the subject of second Fourfold Path to Healing seminar, March 17-19, featuring Sally Fallon and Tom Cowan, at the University of British Columbia.
Thomas Cowan, MD, principle author of the acclaimed book, The Fourfold Path to Healing, will explore the mystery and myth of the heart and heart disease, non-toxic therapies for cancer and forgotten remedies for arthritis. He will present practical ways to treat common illnesses at home using herbs, homeopathy and heat therapy.
Food and nutrition for optimal wellness will be explored by Sally Fallon, a co-author of the book. Fallon will present evidence that refutes the current lowfat dietary paradigm and will focus specifically on healthy diets for growing children, drawing from the research of nutrition pioneer, Dr. Weston A. Price. Her presentations include practical meal plans and recipes for nourishing the whole family.
Jaimen McMillan, the third author of The Fourfold Path to Healing, will demonstrate how to improve your emotional state and overall sense of well-being with exercise and movement.
The first Fourfold Path to Healing conference was held in Oakland, California in July of 2004. Participants described the conference as “Blissful”… “perfect in every way”… “a life-changing experience.”
The conference to be held at the University of British Columbia represents a unique opportunity for individuals, families, teachers and health professionals to learn more about diet and health from the internationally acclaimed authors of The Fourfold Path to Healing, who will challenge your deepest beliefs while showing you a practical approach to improving your health and your quality of life.
“An incredible synergy occurs when a nutrient-dense diet is combined with holistic remedies, movement, therapeutics and mindful meditation,” says Fallon. “At the Fourfold Conference we will create a vast landscape of useful tools you can incorporate into your daily life as you strive for optimum health.”
