Natural Health Consultant, Master Herbalist
 


Natural Health and Disease Prevention,
Chronic Illness and Hormone Balancing

Learn how to use natural techniques and supplements
for anti-aging, overall good health and disease prevention.

Come and meet me and your other health minded neighbors.

Wed. Feb 14th - 1 to 3 pm - Conventional, Alternative and Natural Medicine

There is no substitute for conventional medical treatment for acute conditions such as, a heart attack, stroke or injuries sustained in an automobile accident. However, non-acute and chronic health problems are often better handled with alternative or natural medicine approaches. This session focuses on the difference between natural and conventional approaches to many common health problems. It emphasizes using vitamins, herbals, diet and other natural approaches to help deter chronic illnesses before they occur rather than treating them afterward. The session covers the basic minimum of vitamins and minerals needed to maintain health. Included will be a discussion of over-the-counter food supplements, herbal preparations, and watching out for myths, phony cures and hoaxes.

Wed. Mar 14th - 1 to 3 pm - Hormone Balancing for Improved Well-Being

Hormones are the chemical messengers of the body controlling many body functions, but they are affected by normal aging, prescription drugs, medical treatments and chronic health problems. This session openly discusses adult issues related to problems caused by hormonal imbalances such as relationship problems, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, prostate problems, hot flashes and midnight sweats, vaginal dryness and miscellaneous sexual and other problems. A major part of this discussion is about conventional hormone replacement therapy verses bio-identical hormone balancing for improved sexual and overall health for both men and women.

Wed. Apr 11th - 1 to 3 pm - You and Your Heart

Heart problems affect many seniors. They often begin or are exacerbated by poor nutrition. This lecture will discuss some of the causes of chronic heart problems and how to avoid them. Topics will include (but not be limited to); the role of high cholesterol and triglycerides, controlling blood pressure, congestive heart failure, atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis, coronary heart disease, atrial fibrillation and other arrhythmias, circulation disorders, peripheral artery disease, intermittent claudication, and angina. Also included is a discussion of vitamin, mineral, herbal and other nutritional supplements that can help your body support good heart health.

It also discusses drug-free ways to help your body cope with these conditions, if you already have one.

Tuesday Apr 24th - 11:30am to 1:30pm - Using Nutritional and Herbal Remedies

As people get more sophisticated and knowledgeable, they often turn to natural treatments for their health issues. This session teaches you how to research the Internet and determine which sites are providing reputable scientific information verses those providing pseudo-science generated by sales staff and actors in white coats. It also teaches you how to research prescription drugs for their “real” side effects, and how to read through the “hype” provided by disreputable sites hawking expensive, but useless products.
