Detoxing, Teatoxing, and Tea Safety
A multitude of detox or cleansing regimens conjure up promises to cure about everything – with more seeming to come out each week. They promise to help with weight loss, removing undigested materials from the colon, and the releasing of toxins from the body, among other things. How safe are these regimens, do they work, and do you really need to detox? Gain insight at the Grinnell Regional Medical Center’s Senior Education Program on Monday, May 8.
Elaine Hammes, MS, RDN, LD, registered dietitian with GRMC for more than 11 years, will help navigate these answers. She graduated from Iowa State University, completed her dietetic internship at the University of Iowa, and received her Masters from the University of Nebraska.
Hammes enjoys the opportunity to share new, valid nutrition information to the public for a hopefully more healthful life.
The Senior Education program is held each Monday at 10 a.m. in the Drake Community Library, with refreshments beginning at 9:30 a.m. This program is free and open to the public.
Parking is available at the Drake Community Library, along Park Street, on Fifth Avenue, and in the First Presbyterian Church parking lot. Seniors needing transportation or special accommodations may call GRMC’s communications and development office at 641-236-2590 by the Thursday before the program.
