June Meeting Topic: “Holistic Nutrition”

Our speaker at June’s monthly meeting will be Monika Bock:

Version 3

In today’s world of health and nutrition there are countless headlines, books, diets, and new “superfoods” coming on the market that claim to be the next cure all. As a holistic nutritionist the first thing I tell my clients is that everyBODY is different – what might work for one person may not for another. That being said, there are some basic nutritional requirements that everyone needs to be healthy and active. What does your body need to stay healthy and allow you to function at your best? I will be discussing how whole food and proper digestion is linked to nutrient absorption along with some tips on how to incorporate foods that support your digestion into you diet. 

Nutrition must support each person’s bio-individuality. My passion is to support my clients so they can achieve their individual health and wellness goals through a sustainable change in their diet and lifestyle.

MIWC Monthly Meeting March 8, 2017

Karin Rahn will join us on Wednesday, March 8th to talk about Diakonia, a non-profit organization which was founded to provide work for disabled or long-term unemployed persons who have multiple integration barriers and thus little chance of placement on the primary or secondary labour market. Diakonia supports their re-integration into the workforce with low-threshold offers ranging from domestic services for child care facilities, painters, assorting clothing, to logistics and sales positions in the seven second hand stores in Munich.

In addition, Diakonia provides consulting for unemployed persons at the Munich Center for Unemployed Persons, low-threshold social counseling for persons in severe financial situations as well as manage three clothing-stores in which refugees and all citizens of Munich with a low income or pension supply themselves with free clothing and hygiene products. This work is possible thanks to those volunteers in the clothing-stores as well as in the unemployment centers.
