This will be a final mention of the upcoming Wellness Summit we're hosting at Polyface next Saturday, September 14. We still have some room for more folks but already have plenty for a meaningful day.
The goal is to love on the alternative health community. Around the margins of health care are thousands of practitioners who don't embrace current medical orthodoxy. These are folks who heal diabetes with diet. They heal pain with acupuncture and massage. They use herbs instead of heavy drugs. They dare to suggest alternatives to opiods.
Too often, the practitioners who walk to the beat of a different drummer, who take the road less traveled, feel ostracized and alone. Here at Polyface, we recognize the close connection between unorthodox farming and unorthodox medical care. To not use chemical fertilizers is an ideological cousin to not using drugs for health.
We felt like these folks needed a haven, a place to gather and be affirmed, encouraged and re-energized to keep going. When you're a maverick, it's lonely out there. And when you hear threats about your practices, get called names like quacks, it's demoralizing and depressing.
The morning will be a farm tour hay ride and the afternoon will be a facilitated discussion, emceed by Dr. Zach Bush. Bush probably leads the accredited medical community right now in connecting the dots between the soil and the human micro-biome.
Although it's open to anybody, we're targeting wellness practitioners and their families. You can register and see more information on the Polyface website… http://www.polyfacefarms.com/product/wellness/?fbclid=IwAR2PybwbqfMfrpw1HtZDt1zzG4Pgt7FQRiW-La35p_NQysRfTNNzp_ZU8bI
I hope to see you here. Thank you.
