Healthspan: Live Better, Not Just Longer
May 10, 2023
Last year, Dr. Zorba Paster spoke to us about his five spheres of wellness, emphasizing the importance of a holistic approach. This month’s program follows that line of thinking. Tina Hallis, Ph.D., author of Sharpen Your Positive Edge, and advocate for the Terrain Approach to Health, knows from experience the importance of an integrative approach. Her background in both bio-organic chemistry and positive psychology led her to her unique position in health coaching. But it was her own health journey where she dove into the latest science on health and nutrition that made her realize that everything she thought she knew was backward. She recognizes that the best road to well-being is disease prevention rather than disease suppression. Her mission “is to help empower, educate and support others on their health or healing journey.” That requires catering to each person’s individual needs and goals, and to a recognition of the whole person. During this informative presentation, Tina will help you go beyond focusing on your lifespan to focusing on your healthspan.
Here are Tina’s handouts from the May meeting.
