To Do: Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead Screening at the Rotunda in University City

Make room in your Saturday-afternoon schedule to watch this documentary.

If you’re skeptical about the benefits of juicing, I implore you: Watch the 2010 documentary, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, which follows over-weight, middle-aged Joe Cross, who is a long-time sufferer of an autoimmune disease. Joe goes on a 60-day juice fast to take control of his health. I won’t spoil all the details, but by the end of his grand experiment, Joe has lost 100 pounds (!), no longer needs to take medicine for his disease (!!), and has significantly improved his quality of life (!!!). You can check out the trailer here.

On June 1st, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead will be screened in our area in conjunction with Illuminating Health Holistically, a Philadelphia-based group dedicated to learning more about health using integrative approaches in healthcare. More info is here and you can RSVP here.

FREE, Saturday June 1st at noon, The Rotunda, 4014 Walnut Street, Philadelphia.
