FOOD AS MEDICINE

 

FOOD AS MEDICINE

Talk Description:

Hippocrates famously said “let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food”. In the western world so many of us dismiss the healing effects of food as somewhat of an “old wives’ tale”. Our body’s have remarkable regenerative and healing abilities when supported by the proven effects of organic, plant-based wholefoods. Curcumin which is found in turmeric for example, is a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-viral. Rather than taking it in pill-form, you can enjoy a delicious turmeric latte instead using the fresh stuff. 10 years ago, Maz Valcorza was an asthmatic and needed antibiotics every change of season to combat flus and colds that would turn into full-blown bronchitis. Join her as she shares the top 10 most accessible and powerful medicinal foods on the planet. Learn how to use food instead of pharmaceuticals to create natural preventative tonics and remedies.

Biography:

Previously a registered nurse, Maz left her career in pharmaceutical sales to open Sadhana Kitchen Sydney’s first organic, vegan, wholefoods and raw food eatery which served delicious plant-based food to patrons in both Newtown & Bondi Beach for almost 6 years. Author of Uncooked & The Naked Vegan, she has been working with healthy vegan and allergy friendly foods for the last 5.5 years. As a practitioner of yoga and meditation, Maz advocates mindfulness, presence and ahimsa. Ahimsa is sanskrit for non-violence and she believes one of the most meaningful ways we can practice this in our daily lives is by living plant-based and sustainable lifestyles.

QUOTES & REVIEWS

  • “Lost Paradise was like a big backyard party that just spiralled out of control; in the best way possible. A beautiful setting, a lovely cool river to swim in (or to hold an unofficial mini rave, as the case turned out), an entire corner of the grounds devoted to yoga and meditation and relaxation, and barely a bright neon flashing alcohol sponsorship logo to be seen, it carried the casual and laidback vibe of a much smaller festival — while still attracting some of the country’s most exciting and beloved live acts.”

    – HUFFINGTON POST
  • “Lost Paradise is the nuanced, well-rounded, quiet achiever of Aussie festivals; big enough to deliver on the great acts, but small enough to still have an air of intimacy about it.”

    – MTV TRAVEL
  • “I had such a good time at Lost Paradise! It’s one of the coolest festivals I’ve been to. I loved playing the Lost Disco stage, the atmosphere was wicked, the decoration was class and the lit up signs the crowd brought with them, added to it too.

    After my set I went on the dancefloor with a few of my mates and saw the new year in listening to Jackmaster & Jasper James, was a memorable new year!”

    – Patrick Topping
  • “Lost Paradise was a totally unique festival, nothing like it in Australia. Thank you to everyone who made it such a beautiful place.”

    – RÜFUS DU SOL
  • “The thing that really makes this festival shine is without a doubt the sheer variety of acts in that world class lineup. Dense, ambitious, and not afraid to throw in a few curve balls, Lost Paradise is much more than your average doof, but a playground for all, no matter what your age or musical alignment.”

    -Pulse
  • “Keep doing what you’re doing! Such an amazing, intimate festival. Felt like everyone there was one big family. Had a really amazing feel – everyone was supportive and comfortable and wanted each other to have a fabulous time.”

    – JANICE MULLER, LOST PARADISE TRIBE
  • “You escape the city, the smog and traffic, and lose yourself in a forest for a weekend, to the soundtrack of cicadas and a bubbling creek and some of your favourite music. Lost Paradise is one of the more beautiful festivals currently on the calendar”

    – Huffington Post
  • “I remember the first time I played this festival I went for a walk around and thought, ‘this is the kind of festival that if I wasn’t working at I’d go to’. Last year after I played I walked around out the front to see Motor City Drum Ensemble and my feelings were the same – I’d happily do it again…”

    – TOUCH SENSITIVE
  • “One of the most magical spots we’ve ever played in Oz and a night complimented by generous staff and hospitality that really looked after us. A show we’ll never forget”

    – STICKY FINGERS
  • “This is one of the best and most organised events I’ve attended (and I’ve been to a lot!) and whoever curated the masterclasses did a brilliant job of taking us out of our comfort zones. “

    “….I love to dance, dress up boho-style and get out of the big smoke once in a while. Lost Paradise was all this and more – right on our doorstep.”

    – Lisa Messenger, Editor-In-Chief, Collective Hub
  • “Re-awaken your sense of wanderlust and adventure with the festival’s secret hideaways, glittering late night discos, and inspirational art and performance”

    No1 NYE 2017/8 Event in the World – Buzzfeed
  • “Deep in enchanted bushlands it’s always a super diverse line up of DJs and acts playing to an audience down to dance all night. One of my favourite festies to play and attend. Topping off the year on a high note.”

    -Shantan Wantan Ichiban
  • “It’s fun, silly and beautiful, all at once, and hasn’t yet failed to serve up a good time.”
