Advanced Nutritional Symptomatology: Adrenal Fatigue:
Prevention & Treatment through Nutrition
With Dr. Joel Villeneuve BSc., ND

If you feel like you have lost your joie de vivre, constantly feel tired, struggle to get out of bed in the mornings or feel overwhelmed with stress, you may be one of the 80 percent of people that have at some point in their lives suffered from Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome. The adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and are stimulated when you are under stress to produce your “fight and flight” hormones epinephrine, norepinephrine and other key hormones. If you are constantly under stress or simply lacking sleep eventually this gland becomes fatigued leaving you feeling flat and prone to a host of other symptoms including digestive concerns and lower immunity. Join this seminar to learn how to assess if you have adrenal fatigue, tips to reducing your stress levels and what nutritional support can restore your adrenal health.

Nutrition Through The Lifespan:
Optimal Infant and Childhood Nutrition
With Dr. Cheryl Allen BSc., ND, NCMP

Many experts believe that this generation will not live as long as their parents – this statement alone should inspire us to look seriously into what is happening in our children’s health. We are also seeing an increase in immune related conditions such as eczema, allergies and asthma, increases in ADD/ADHD and mood concerns as well as hormonal imbalances such as insulin resistance and diabetes, weight gain and obesity. To really see change we are going to have to address the root cause of these conditions. Join us for a discussion on how food and proper nutrition can play a vital role in allowing this generation to not only be free from disease, but allow them to thrive.

You will leave with an understanding of how foods can affect our hormones, immune system, digestive system/ microbiome, and how we can use this knowledge to optimize health of this and future generations.

3:30-5:00 pm
Comparative Diets:
Balancing pH through Nutrition
With Kristin Shropshire MS, ROHP, RAc.

Everything we consume from food, to beverages, to herbs and supplements, will have an effect on the pH of our bodies and body systems. Our bodies constantly try to maintain an optimal balance of pH, but this mechanism can be disrupted by anything from acute or chronic illness to stress levels, and diet. In this informative lecture you will learn the meanings of a substance being neutral, acidic and alkaline, and the effects of alkalosis or acidosis in the body. Key foods and nutrients for alkalizing the body through nutrition, and why this is beneficial for optimal health will also be discussed.
