Why Food Should Be Your First Medicine

Are you confused by all the changes in "nutrition guidelines"?  Is fat good or bad?  What is safe to eat? How do you develop a food plan that is easy to implement?  Join us as we begin exploring answers to these questions. Eileen Immerman was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005.  Over the next several years, she realized she also had three separate autoimmune disorders. Conventional medicine wasn't helpful. She found an answer to WHY she was so sick. Hear her amazing story of fighting her way back to wellness as she shares what she learned about the power of food. This fun, informative talk will include tasting a dairy and gluten free holiday meal using healthy recipes that your family will love!  Recipes will be provided to take home. Cost is $35 and the menu is:

  • Carrot-ginger soup
  • Lemon-artichoke hummus with seed crackers
  • Chicken Marbella with prunes and olives
  • Cauliflower stuffing
  • Roasted root vegetables with thyme and rosemary

Immerman is a former critical care RN and is currently a Certified Functional Medicine Health Coach. She coaches clients in the Chippewa Valley who are interested in regaining or maintaining wellness, and blogs about her journey and food at, on Twitter and Facebook.
