America’s over-weight population has become one of the most serious health problems we face”, said Harmony Morgan, Director for Healing Hands School of Holistic Health – Laguna Hills. “The National Center for Health Statistics estimates that, for 2015-2016, 39.8% of adults aged 20 and over were obese (including 7.6% with severe obesity) and that another 31.8% were overweight and these figures keep rising. As a school of Holistic Health, we believe that healthy dietary practices are the key to reversing this trend. Today, I want to remind all Healing Hands students that our 40-hour ‘Super-foods & Dietary Practices’ course begins August 7th in Escondido campus; so don’t delay, enroll today”, she added.
The dramatic impact of nutrition on health is exactly why Healing Hands Founders, Paula and Neha Curtiss, recruited renown Nutritionist, Herbalist, and Holistic Health Instructor, Ms. Shana Lipner-Grover. Shana has been an Herbal Medicine and Nutrition Educator since 2004 and is an important contributor and advocate for the Holistic Healing Arts in California. For the past 13 years, Shana has shared her vast knowledge of Herbal Medicine and Nutrition with thousands of Healing Hands students and is still going strong.
Shana’s upcoming course, Super-foods & Dietary Practices’, is designed to educate students about the basics of healthy nutrition. The course examines the basic nutrients in food such as carbohydrates, vitamins, fatty acids, enzymes and amino acids.
Students also learn how food choices impact our health, mental clarity, mood, and energy levels. They discuss how the energy in their food affects their own energy and learn how food is converted to fuel for the body.
Through demonstration, preparation and sampling of delicious and nutritious recipes, students learn the keys to eating right so they can build a strong foundation for long-term health.
Since it’s opening in 1992, Healing Hands School of Holistic Health has successfully prepared more than 7,500 students for satisfying and rewarding careers as Massage Therapists and can do the same for YOU!
