Full Plate: Nourishing Your Family’s Whole Health in a Busy World @ Sheridan Fulmer Public Library Inner Circle
Jul 25 @ 1:30 pm

Sheridan Fulmer Public Library will host an educational program with Lander author Sarah Kolman on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in the Inner Circle. Kolman is a nurse and integrative health coach with a master’s degree in psychotherapy who recently published the book “Full Plate: Nourishing Your Family’s Whole Health in a Busy World.” Kolman believes that we need to “think outside the box” if we really want to make a difference in our own health as well as the declining health of our country. During the program, Kolman will speak about the personal experiences that led to the creation of her book and will also encourage questions and conversation with participants. Kolman’s perspective on health was in great part inspired by her experience healing her two-year-old son, who struggled with behavioral issues, emotional outbursts and severely interrupted sleep. After failed attempts to resolve these issues within the conventional medical system, they were ultimately eliminated with dietary modifications and balancing the micro flora in his digestive system. In the book, she offers practical advice on how to decrease chronic inflammation, balance your microbiome, improve your immune health, decrease your risk of cancer and increase your consumption of “real” food. Kolman created a personal consulting business, This. One. Life. and provides one-on-one guidance and support for clients nationwide. She can be contacted through her website www.this-one-life.com For more information, contact the library at 674-8585, ext. 129. Fulmer Library is located at 335 W. Alger St.
