Blue Zone Workshop Explores Healthy Habits of Centenarians

May 01, 2022 12:00AM ● By Natural Awakenings Milwaukee
Blue Zones are places in the world that not only have high concentrations of people aged 100 and above, but also high numbers of people that have grown old without diseases like diabetes or heart disease. Naturopathic Doctor Sarah Axtell, of Lakeside Natural Medicine, recently visited one of the Blue Zones—Nicoya, Costa Rica—to research the lifestyle of the world’s longest-living people. She will share their longevity secrets at a Blue Zones workshop, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., May 14.

The workshop, which will be offered both on-site and virtually, will also feature a demonstration of some delicious recipes inspired by the Blue Zones. Those that choose to attend the workshop in-person will get to enjoy samples. In-person registrations are limited.

Lessons From the Blue Zones with Lakeside Natural Medicine - start: May 14, 2022 11:00AM

“People in Blue Zone cultures not only live longer lives, but they often live better lives, with health, meaning and love,” says Axtell. “The secret to ‘eating to 100’ lies not only in what the centenarians eat, but also how food fits into their lives.”

Cost: $39 for virtual workshop; $50 for in-person workshop. Location: 3510 N. Oakland Ave., Unit 203, Shorewood. For more information or to register, call 414-939-8748 or visit
