Community-Based Learning on Health, Unique to You

Submitted By Karen Sindelar

There are so many articles and recommendations out there about how to 'be healthy.' How do you know what to believe? How do you know what to do for YOU and your family to live healthily?

A local chapter of the Sustainable Health Institute meets at the Union City Library on the third Monday of the month. The next meeting is Monday, May 19 from 7 - 8 pm. At each meeting, the group focuses on developing the capacity together to critically evaluate health information, health science, and health practices. There is a huge health benefit to all of us being in community with each other, relating our experiences and learning how to take care of ourselves in this world.

Examples of topics that could be discussed at some point include:

What can you take away as truly healthy options after reading the latest health studies?
Given the reality of today's world with busy schedules, technological advancements and stores and restaurants not seeming to care about the effect on our health, how can you make good decisions for yourself and your family?
Electromagnetic fields and radio frequency radiation
Your own personal sensitivities and how to find out what caused them
Organic or not? Why? And worth it?
What does 'preventative' care mean? Do the 'guidelines' and 'recommendations' make sense for you and your family?
