Healthy Hearts! Nutrition for a Healthy Heart and Arteries

Tutor: Kirsten Chick
Location: Evolution Arts, 2 Sillwood Terrace, Brighton & Hove BN1 2LR
Next date: Saturday workshop, 16 July 2016

What does the workshop cover?

Your amazing heart helps give you the energy to walk, run, think and breathe. A healthy cardiovascular system means you can stay alert, active and energised: for work, for playing games and sports, and for hanging out with your family and friends. It's no wonder the heart is associated with joy, laughter, love, creativity, fire and warmth. 

Sadly, about 7 million people in the UK currently suffer from cardiovascular disease (CVD), including high blood pressure, blocked arteries, atrial fibrillation, stroke and heart attack - all of which can have a big impact on how you live your life. In addition, CVD is responsible for more than 1 in 4 deaths each year. We know that diet can play a massive role in preventing cardiovascular disease, but how up-to-date is the standard advice?

Kirsten Chick shares the very latest information about cholesterol, inflammation and stress, and how to keep your heart and arteries in the best condition possible. She brings the science to life, explores a holistic nutritional approach and shows how you can make easy changes to your diet. 

Who is the workshop for?

This workshop is ideal for anyone interested in health and wellbeing. This includes complete newcomers to the field, people with a good knowledge already who want specialised information, as well as those who have attended or are planning to attend any of the Nutrition courses at Evolution.

The course was extremely good value and fascinating, every week I was gripped and looked forward to the next session!  I had never really realised or considered how nutrition and our bodies are connected to everything in the universe.  This course has certainly opened my eyes and made me think about things in a different way.  The course worked well because Kirsten followed a general framework she adapted it each week making it more relevant according to our interests.  She conveyed a wealth of knowledge in a simple and easy to understand way, as well as giving us practical ideas on how best to utilise the information and incorporate it into our daily lives.  I left the course feeling motivated and committed to making nutritional lifestyle changes.  Fiona

It was al new for me so I liked the whole course because I learned a lot.  Particularly the techniques to heal the gut and to help the lymphatic system to release toxins (Level 2).  Also I liked the way of teaching and the informations we had.  Cristina

Very informative course and just the way that Kirsten links all the jey factors to our everyday life.  Where we can apply this type of nutritional stuff to our busy schedules/life.  Great stuff ideal for all ages! Andy

I really enjoyed this course.  Kirsten delivered information in an informal way building on the groups knowledge.  The information was detailed - the worksheets were very informative.  The subjects covered over the 6 weeks were well planned. Anne

I feel the course has really changed the way I cook and eat.  It made me very aware of processes in my body.  Really good.  Jacqui

I feel happier that I feel a bit more knowledgable with food groups & combining different types of food.  Also feel my mood is better than normal at this time of year. Andy
