Herbalist Chris Freeman instructed the Bellefontaine Kiwanis Club on “Living Clean in a Dirty World” at its regular meeting Thursday.
Freeman cited two types of hazards that Americans face on a daily basis: environmental, such as exhaust fumes, pesticides, and fertilizers; and lifestyle, which includes processed foods, additives, alcohol, and tobacco products.
Freeman, pictured left, recommended diets such as the Mediterranean, Paleo, and vegan which stress eating more fruits, vegetables, seeds, and “correctly”-fed animals. He also recommended that the body undergo the process of removing toxic substances of a regular basis. including a targeted/intense detox annually.
Chuck Earick was awarded his 40-year Legion of Honor, while Larry Bush received his 30-year Legion award at the meeting.
The Kiwanis also welcomed four new members, greeting Julie McCormick, John Yoshida, Brian Dhume, and Dave Haw as inductees.
The Kiwanis hit the road next week with a trip to the Kenton Club, where Doug Chivington is slated to speak about the Rails to Trails project.
