WEST WARWICK — Tonight, the West Warwick Public Library will offer the opportunity to learn about the toxins and chemicals that we are exposed to on a daily basis.

Starting at 6:30 p.m., they will be hosting a wellness program to learn about solutions for the mind, body and spirit, according to Maureen Delovio, the head of the reference department.

“I think everybody is now concerned about their health. We are learning more and more about things that we never knew about,” said Delovio, specifically mentioning the Bisphenol A [BPA] commonly found in water bottles.

“It’s a lifestyle change. Even if it is just one thing you change, it would help,” she said.

The presentation will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Danielle Baker, a certified massage therapist and personal trainer, will lead the discussion and answer questions afterwards.

“She will provide a holistic approach to not only food, but also what is in the environment,” said Delovio.

Baker will discuss the toxins and chemicals commonly found and how they affect how a person looks and feels. She will provide solutions to symptoms such as fatigue, irritability, moodiness, headaches and allergies, according to the press release from the library.

Baker will also explain how to use whole food nutrition and present whole food recipes. For those interested in continuing, Baker plans to be available to offer more recipe ideas through e-mail.

This is Baker’s first class at the public library in West Warwick, said Delovio. The library was approached and Delovio explained that they agreed because it seemed “very timely. People are concerned.”

The session will be open to the public and will be free of charge.
They will meet on Tuesday, Dec. 6, at 6:30 p.m. in the Nash Community Meeting Room. For more information, the library can be contacted at 828-3750 or the website
