Menopause Management: Easy Action Steps to Improve Symptoms and Decrease Cancer Risk
“We are what we eat,” sounds simple but is true! The foods that we eat can be inflammatory and damaging to our blood vessels, or anti-inflammatory and healing to our blood vessels. The food that we eat determines the health of our gut bacteria, the microbiome. It’s fascinating and exciting science that when put into action, can be a life changer!
Teen Gynecology Issues: How Diet and Exercise Make All the Difference
Teen girls have complicated health issues, ranging from menstrual irregularities, heavy menstrual bleeding, acne, emotional swings, and menstrual cramping. Some have gastrointestinal issues that can contribute to pain and confusion. At times, hormonal therapy with “birth control pills” is not effective as we would like in controlling these disruptive symptoms. What if there was a way to improve these issues by 25%, 50% or more, that did not involve more prescription drugs or invasive intervention? Let’s get back to basics and tease away the layers of lifestyle that can improve our daughters’ lives.
Pelvic Pain, Ovaries and Endometriosis: Can Food Make a Difference?
We will focus on the causes of pelvic pain and explore how using Food as Medicine can improve pain, improve digestion and decrease the inflammation and impact of endometriosis.
Men’s Health Issues: We Need to Come Out of the Closet!
Learn how various male issues, including ejaculatory dysfunction and “man boobs” can be diet related and how using Food as Medicine can improve and potentially reverse these health problems. The Standard American Diet (SAD), that is meat-heavy, dairy-heavy, full of salt, fat, sugars and processed foods is responsible for 80% of the chronic diseases in our country. Protein myths abound due to food industry marketing. We unpack these issues to open doors to feeling great as we age.
