In the “Burgarella’s Farm House”, situated on the hill of Bianzano, on the lakeshore of Endine, in the North of Italy, the work is organized to promote the cardiovascular health with his agricultural products, associated with a cultural activity.

The 25th September last, the Heart Friends organized a meeting to remark more than once the importance of the prevention.

Dr. Lucio Lorusso, nutritionist, gave a lesson about health diet, to take under control the obesity and the diabet.

Before the lesson, the Friends gathered round the aedicule of Fra Tommaso da Olera, their patron , to attend a church ceremony; already few years ago they had asked to the Pope for his beatification (www.fratommaso.org) .

During the meeting was presented the book “Be a wild dove”, a viaticum to the patients, delivered free of charge to every associated.

They took a healthy walk in the wood and the cultivated land, to see the fields of aromatic and officinal herbes.

They attended also the demonstration to extract essential oils by microwave distillation and received some nuts rich in Omega 3 good for heart health, cards of aromatherapy and bunch of lavandula.

Dr Flavio Burgarella, Executive Director of the Association, assured that other Farm Houses with the similar aims in the world will be inspired by this experience, to make an international net as reference frame.
