VAIL — Your health is determined by more than what you eat. Movement, the environment you live in and your state of mind are all essential for optimal health. The Vail Public Library will host Kristina Sampson for a special event on Wednesday at 5:30 pm.

In this session, you will learn about the four peaks of the Vail Diet: nourish your body, shake your booty, heed your habitat and find your bliss. You will also discover how this can help you live your healthiest and most fulfilling life.

OVERCOMING CANCER

The Vail Diet was coined by Sampson, a breast cancer survivor and CPA-turned-holistic health coach, certified by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.

After Sampson's 2007 diagnosis of a rare and aggressive form of breast cancer, she took control of her well-being. While also undergoing traditional treatments, she brought her already-healthy lifestyle to a whole new level. As a result of working with excellent doctors and living a clean lifestyle, she has been happily cancer-free since going into remission.

This experience taught Sampson that life is too short to postpone following your passion. She decided to share The Vail Diet — a name she and her husband, John, coined to describe their treasured Colorado lifestyle — through her website and health coaching practice.

The Vail Diet focuses on eating real, nutrient-dense, high-quality food; reducing your exposure to toxins in both your diet and your environment; being physically active and taking care of your body; and incorporating your own unique approach to spirituality into your life.

This program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, call 970-479-2187.
