Nutrition and Chronic Disease

Abundant research reveals that lifestyle choices have a far greater impact on our risk factors than genetic predisposition. Learn how to tip the scales in your favor and ditch your victim mentality based on what “runs in the family”. This includes general recommendations for optimal nutritional intake.

Supplementation: Vitamins, Minerals, and other Nutrients
Although never a substitute for healthy nutrition, exercise and positive ways of thinking, in our toxic world, high quality, appropriate supplements can help protect us from environmental hazards, reduce some disease risk, enhance well-being and energy, and even mitigate the side effects of some drugs, if you must take them.


Cancer Awareness and Prevention (Includes Understanding Free Radicals and Antioxidants)

You have probably heard about “antioxidants” and “free radicals”, but what do these really mean and what are their ramifications on our disease risk and aging process? Also, learn what foods have “magical” nutrients that protect us, what products and practices we should avoid, and what preventive care we should receive for reduced risk and early detection.


Tobacco Cessation

It’s common knowledge that if you smoke or use any form of tobacco, the highest priority lifestyle change to undertake to improve your health is to stop. Customized programming, from one general informational session, to a series of four facilitated support sessions plus individual interviews for participants, can be tailored to your organization’s needs.


Women’s Health

Women’s nutritional needs across the continuum of our life cycle (child bearing years, PMS, pregnancy, lactation, Peri-menopause, menopause, beyond…) vary greatly, and impact our health, well-being and ability to cope with the passage of time. Learn some strategies to smooth your current roller coaster ride…


Label Reading

Be a nutrition detective! Learn what to look for in terms of nutrients we want (protein, fiber, calcium, other vitamins and minerals) and those that should be eliminated or limited (trans-fats, high fructose corn syrup, MSG, artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, preservatives, .....saturated fat, sodium). I recommend trying to eliminate the former and limit the latter. Better understand the value of organic foods, and explanation of benefits of eating locally, the “dirty dozen”, become better educated on prioritizing to minimize contaminants on a budget.


Food Demonstrations Incorporated by Topic

These simple demos, which are customized based on topic, have proven successful and compelling to all groups! Even those who are not actively seeking to improve their lifestyle habits right now can passively learn some helpful and motivating facts, as well as tasting nutritious, rainbow colored foods. It is often an event that precipitates change. For those already more on the path of improvement, it is an invaluable, tactile experience!
