Learn How to Control Inflammation and Pain




Michelle Eberwein (L) and Rita Hickman

INSIDE Holistic and Cultural Art Center is hosting a class, Foods to Fight Inflammation for Pain Management, at 10 a.m., March 14, with certified health and nutrition coach Michelle Eberwein, owner of Inner Hope and Wellness, and wellness expert and shiatsu massage specialist Rita Hickman.

This class will give people the proper information about which foods cause inflammation and which foods can fight inflammation. Chronic inflammation can be painful and sometimes debilitating, and is a major symptom in many diseases such as fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, lupus and many others.

A diet high in fat, chemicals, and refined and processed foods increases inflammation, while a diet rich in vegetables, fruits and omega-3 fatty acids tones down inflammation. Attendees will get the proper tools to learn how to eat right and fight inflammation.


Location: 1241 N. Green St., McHenry. For more information, call Hickman at 815-245-9673 or email [email protected]. To contact Eberwein, visit InnerHopeAndWellness.com.
