FOOD AS MEDICINE
AUGUST 30 - SEPTEMBER 1
"THE FOOD YOU EAT CAN EITHER BE THE SAFEST AND MOST POWERFUL
FORM OF MEDICINE OR THE
SLOWEST FORM OF POISON"
Are you completely fed up with mainstream healthcare status quo? Sick of being prescribed antibiotics for every sniffle but also no idea what you're doing wrong to make your immune system so weak?
Are you interested in the idea of Food As Medicine but no idea where to start? Feeling confused by all the contradicting click-bait health headlines? (So.. is coconut oil a superfood or killing me??)
Does your relationship with food need some TLC? Or do you just want to disconnect from your everyday hustle in a luxurious country estate with nutritious food, bubble baths and nature sounds?
Fall in love with good food. This 3-day retreat will be an unforgettable journey exploring the wonders of food like never before. Be inspired as you discover food healing techniques from across the world and throughout the ages up to and including contemporary nutritional science. An exploration of functional medicine, the melting pot of east meets west.
We will gift you the tools needed to combine the joy of food with the ability to heal yourself from the inside out. We aim to inspire the confidence and resolve within you to make healthy decisions every time and resist trends, fads and the empty promises of miracle cures. We want to positively impact your relationship with the food you eat, and we want to the food you eat to positively impact your health, vitality, and happiness.
Truly connect with your food by harvesting from the garden and creating in our kitchen. You will be mesmerized by our nutritionist, Shannon Rosie, and food magician Pauline O'Brien.
Pauline will show you how much fun you can have in the kitchen as you learn new skills and techniques that can be applied to improve your health and wellbeing as soon as you get home. Shannon Rosie will cut through the confusion around fad diets and gut health and teach you how food is the medicine that will help you live life to the fullest!
LIMITED SPOTS AVAILABLE
After overwhelming rave reviews from previous retreat guests - asking for our recipes and more of a focus on the beautiful food that we prepare - we are thrilled to offer the very first Springfield Farm Food as Medicine Retreat.
Our Food Magician, Pauline O'Brien will be coming back to Springfield Farm, all the way from her home in Green Village Bali. Pauline's passion and wisdom is all about the traditional healing qualities of food. She's here to teach you the secrets of easy to prepare, mouth-watering, fresh, wholesome, plant-based food that is good for you, and good for the planet!
Here at Springfield Farm, we integrate traditional wisdom with exciting new discoveries in science, so our very own "glamorous, life-lovin' nerd" and in-house nutritionist, Shannon Rosie Barge will be inspiring and entertaining you with the history of Food as Medicine as well the science behind using nourishing food to become your healthiest most vibrant self. Who knew science could be so much fun!
To complete the circle of facilitators our resident eccentric garden-guru Peter Barge will be here to show you how easy and fun it can be to grow your own food too.
