In this Lunch and Learn, Dr. Basima Williams will discuss the many causes of a weakened immune system — such as stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, and environmental toxins, among others — and how this can impact an individual’s life and general well-being. She will focus on ways to help boost immunity and improve overall health in order to prevent illness before it starts.
In our increasingly complex society, we need to optimize our brain fitness to manage the inundation of choices, information, and stimulation that we are exposed to today. The benefits of meditation, mindfulness, and contemplation on mood, attention, compassion, and stress management, as well as the benefits achieved through the development of neuroplasticity, emotional intelligence, and character development are becoming more and more evident. A well-being approach that incorporates these practices will allow us to thrive in the twenty-first century.
As flu and cold season approaches, maintaining the health of the immune system is vitally important. Katheryn Scauzzo will address proper nutrition for enhancing and supporting the immune system to help prevent winter illnesses and to stay as healthy as possible through the coldest months of the year.

The old adage, “You are what you eat,” traces back to a 19th-century French gastronomist. Unfortunately, in the nearly 200 intervening years, many of us seem to have lost touch with this common-sense advice, as poor eating and stress-related habits have resulted in high levels of obesity, cancer, heart disease, and other health problems.
