Allina Health and Kowalski's present Cool It! How to Manage Inflammation

MINNEAPOLIS 02/17/2015

Chronic inflammation ignites the risk for many health issues, ranging from heart disease to joint pain to acne and rashes.

Nancy Van Sloun , MD, integrative medicine physician with the Penny George Institute for Health and Healing, part of Allina Health, and Nutritionist Sue Moore's, MS, RD, of Kowalski's Markets will share effective ways for reducing inflammation March 12, 6:30 to 8 p.m.

"Inflammation is a contributing factor in many chronic conditions, and what we eat influences the inflammation in the body. By learning what foods promote inflammation and what foods reduce inflammation, our diet becomes a powerful tool for improving and maintaining health," says Dr. Van Sloun.

This seminar will introduce participants to foods and spices that make up an anti-inflammatory diet.

"Inflammation that occurs in our bodies affects our ability to be vibrant, energetic and healthy. We can make a difference by eating well, and that means eating delicious, interesting, flavorful foods," says Moores.

The seminar will be held at Kowalski's Eagan Market & Wine Shop, 1646 Diffley Road, Eagan, MN 55122. Registration is $10 per person. Register online at .
