“Resistance” Documentary
Join Slow Food St. Louis for the September 9th SloWednesday event showing the documentary “Resistance”. Antibiotics were first massed-produced in the 1940s. Their ability to fight and kill bacteria revolutionized medicine and had profound effects on everything from agriculture to war. After less than 80 years, however, these miracle drugs are failing. Resistant infections kill hundreds of thousands of people around the world each year, and there are now dozens of so-called Superbugs each with its own challenges and costs. How did this happen? Using microscopic footage, harrowing personal stories, and expert insights “Resistance” clarifies the problem of antibiotic resistance, how we got to this point, and what we can do to turn the tide. After the movie legendary hog farmer Russ Kremer will lead a discussion. Location: Schlafly Bottleworks 7260 Southwest Avenue, Maplewood, MO 63143, Wednesday September 9th, 7:30 p.m. The cost is a suggested donation of $5.00. For more info visit www.slowfoodstl.org.

Free Monthly Wellness Support Group
September 15 – Free Monthly Prevention and Healing Support Group. This month’s Speaker: Earlene Doyle, RN, FCN, CCM, CHBC, CHSMI, CWWP, HMCT. Topic: Issues of the Heart. When discussing important issues of life we often hear people say “follow your heart”, “get to the heart of the matter”, “what is your heart telling you”, “find it in your heart”, and other heart related statements. They are not referring to the physical heart. They are referring to the spiritual heart. The inner person that contains all the unconscious, subconscious, conscious thoughts, images, beliefs, and feelings, plus the will and conscience. It’s the whole person. It’s the wellspring of your whole life. It stores all the images and beliefs we have encountered and adopted. And these images and beliefs literally reverberate through the cells of the body, and influence physical health and healing. Healing of the whole person starts with healing the heart. Not the physical heart, but the “heart” that is the center and source of everything in our lives. When “heart issues” heal, so much else heals along with it. Join us for discussion and demonstration of how “heart issues” impact physical health, healing, and the Healing Control Mechanism in the body. Support Group Leaders: Dr. Simon Yu, M.D. and Chaplain Paul R. Johnson, M.Div. When: Third Tuesday each month (with an occasional exception) at 6:30 pm. – 8:00 pm at our healing clinic, Prevention and Healing, Inc., Dr. Simon Yu, M.D., Board Certified Internist, 10908 Schuetz Road, St Louis, MO 63146, Weaving Internal Medicine with Alternative Medicine to Use the Best Each Has to Offer.

25th Pesto Feast: Massive Food Growing in the Urban Core
Sylvester Brown, former columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and founder of the Sweet Potato Project, will be the keynote speaker at the 25th Great Green Pesto Feast. He will remind us that food deserts in low income urban areas lack fresh fruits and vegetables. Is it really possible to produce food for large numbers of people in cities? If so, city farms may introduce urban youth to growing their own food. Shared food growing could be an essential part of rebuilding decimated communities. The Greens are seeking additional vegetarian donations. Tickets to the Pesto Feast are $25 at the door or $20 advance purchase. To make a donation, purchase an advance ticket, or get more information, call 314-727-8554. Also, see the Greens’ web site: www.gateway-greens.org.
