Welcome to Creating Health. We bring innovative and fun health and wellbeing events to towns in Somerset, with a focus on inspiring people to good health.
Who are we? We are a group of people in West Mendip who came together in summer 2017 to put on a series of workshops in Wells with Health Connections Mendip and Wells Health Centre. These sessions focused on achieving good metabolic health, managing diabetes, maintaining a healthy weight, and eating 'real food' which promotes healthy blood sugar levels. Dr Campbell Murdoch - a Somerset GP - provided an inspring talk which explained the science of nutrition and health which has proved successful for many across the world. Other sessions included a great film called Fixing Dad, which tells the tale of an ordinary family's battle with type two diabetes; cooking demos and healthy tasters for people to try; and a Tai Chi for health and vitality taster session. We also raffled off a slow cooker and cookery books and asked people to bring along their favourite 'real food' recipe.
What now? So inspired were we by the great turnout to these events and the thirst for knowledge and ideas, that we have formed a community group called Creating Health, and we wish to make information which enhances health and wellbeing available to people across Mendip and Somerset in a fun and FREE way.
Anything else? With such a mix of skills and experience in the team we look forward to sharing with you the things we like to do to keep healthy and well, and we invite you to join us!! Check out the diabetes support, health walks, and tai chi pages for more information, and we have some great recipes for you to try on our recipe link. We will add new recipes on a regular basis which are easy to make and tasty too :-)
