Herbal scholar to speak on nutrition
FRIDAY night will see Warwick’s very own expert herbal researcher take to the stage at the School of Total Education to talk about a naturopathic perspective to healthy eating.
SOTE principal Shane Power said children’s nutrition greatly affects their learning, general health and well-being.
“Similarly, our capacity to parent well is greatly influenced by what we eat,” he said.
“Yet there is so much confusion about what food we should be eating, with fad diets and promotion by different interest groups.
“To help parents with some good information about what is a healthy nutritional diet, we have invited Kerry Bone, a world leader on health and herbal medicine to talk on Friday evening between 6.30pm and 7.30pm in the Vijayadev Yogendra Auditorium.”
Mr Bone (pictured) is a co-founder and the innovation driver at MediHerb, a practising herbalist for 30 years, Director of Research and Development at MediHerb, and Principal of the Australian College of Phytotherapy.
He is also Adjunct Professor at New York Chiropractic College and a respected author of more than 30 scientific papers on herbal research.
He has also written or co-written six popular books on herbal medicine, including the long-awaited second edition of Principles and Practice of Phytotherapy, which and was awarded the 2013 James A. Duke Excellence in Botanical Literature Award by the American Botanical Council.
