Each day is an opportunity to work towards living well with better health and more wealth. In all aspects of this living, money is undeniably involved. Knowing about money helps to have a quality of life while we work, make money, and spend it. A major threat is overspending which can lead to reduced cash flow and excessive debt resulting in an unwanted struggle, stress, unhappiness and a feeling of failure. So the time to learn “how to” SuperCharge your day for a better life, is now!

There is a way, guided by vision-goal-plan, to have joy in getting what you want and more. This seminar will introduce you to that powerful knowledge. Please attend with your friends. You are never too young or too old to energize and empower your life.

More than 2500 years ago, Hippocrates, Greek Physician said: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. “Healthy diets can optimize both short- and long-term health and reduce the risk for several health conditions. Poor nutrition is a primary contributor to morbidity globally, and associated with 1 in 4 US deaths. About 1⁄2 of US adults have 1 or more preventable chronic diseases related to food. Simply put, food can help people live healthier and longer lives and food can also help people die prematurely.

The relationship between people and food is complex. Modifying food consumption is difficult, and behavior is hard to change. Eating behavior is also complicated by the fact that food is essential to life, is a core part of cultural identity and social relationships, but we lack the full control over and knowledge of what we eat. Even less is known about the gut feeling. It is said, Take care of your Gut, and your Gut will take care of you”.

This year’s seminar will provide information about how we can maintain health, prevent and reverse disease by eating wisely and improving gut health.

“Knowledge is Power.” Do not miss this very informative seminar to improve your health and that of the community. Please attend with friends, family and children.

Heart Disease and stroke are the leading causes of death in the United States
and worldwide. Tragically, many of these deaths could have been prevented or delayed if more people were better educated about how to protect their own health.

The Sheila Kar Health Foundation is a non-pro t, tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization (Tax ID 20-425964) founded in 2007 to improve our community’s health by promoting education on good health practices and disease prevention.
