After dinner @ 8:00 we have a speaker! Bob Ligon, a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, will speak on Improving Digestion. Everyone would like to enjoy vibrant health and vitality—to have boundless energy, clear mind, and a strong and resilient body. The essential challenge that we all face in achieving health and vitality is transforming the external environment into our own internal environment. This involves the digestion and transformation of food and fluids into blood, tissues and organs. The strength of digestion determines the degree of vitality that we enjoy. With strong digestion, food and fluids can be transformed into strong blood. Strong blood nourishes and vitalizes the cells and internal organs and in turn strengthens and vitalizes the mind and spirit.
How can digestion be improved to achieve that degree of health and vitality? Digestion encompasses many different facets: internal organs must be functioning efficiently, foods and beverages must be selected and prepared for maximum bioavailability, plus the technique and conditions of eating and drinking have a significant impact on digestion. These issues will be discussed with practical suggestions as to how digestion can be improved. Also, the presentation will include a discussion of home remedies and other aids that can improve digestion.
Bob Ligon worked at the Vega Study Center and George Ohsawa Macrobiotic Foundation from 1989-1993, was the editor of Macrobiotics Today magazine from 1992-2000, and is a lecturer and counselor at the annual French Meadows Macrobiotic Summer Camp. He studied acupuncture and herbology from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, graduating in 1998. He integrates his knowledge of macrobiotics and Chinese Medicine in his diet, lifestyle counseling, and life coaching. Currently, Bob practices Traditional Chinese Medicine in Akron, Ohio and does counseling and life coaching by phone; call 330-696-3385.
