  • Modulating Energy Through Understanding Bio-Electric Chemistry

    Presenter:
     Darrell Misak, ND, RPh, S.C.S
    Original Date: January 23, 2016

    The principles of bio-electric chemistry incorporate the mineral/chemical composition of the human body, the electromagnetic nature of all things, and an understanding of how available energy is optimized through chemistry efficiency. Through understanding these concepts, symptoms can be understood and predicted, the weakest points in the body identified, and increased vital force and restoration seen with chemistry movement towards optimal. This is an analytical restorative health based naturopathic approach focused on food, minerals, and water as primary medicine, which provides the practitioner insights and understanding into body needs and symptom causation.

  • The Arts as a Modality of Health

    Presenter:
     Amy Henderson, MA
    Original Date: January 23, 2016

    Research suggests that active participation in the arts and learning promotes physical health, enhances a sense of well-being among older Americans, improves quality of life for those who are ill, and reduces the risk factors that lead to the need for long-term care. Even though there is an interest and participation in the arts by many older Americans, there is a general lack of awareness in the public, healthcare, and social services communities about the positive physical and psychological impacts of arts participation.

    It is of crucial importance of knowing the whole patient, including the psychological, cultural and social issues of aging and older adults. This includes the incorporating of creative expression in health care plans, understanding the stigma and disenfranchisement of the old and cognitively impaired and the cost to society and individuals.

  • What is the Ideal Diet for Good Health and Longevity?

    Original Date: January 23, 2016

    The study of the optimal diet is something that has been discussed for many years. Human search for the perfect diet for excellent health and longevity need go no further than “Blue Zones”. Blue Zones are areas in the world where people live long lives and do not get the normal diseases that afflict the majority of people in the world. To date, there have been five Blue Zones identified where people routinely live into their 90’s and in fact have the most centenarians per capita of any place in the world. In this lecture a careful analysis of the diets of these people is discussed in relation to macro and micro nutrients. Dr. Marz has personally traveled in one of these areas and has plans to travel to all five regions in the world. In addition, accessory nutrients (phytonutrients) are discussed as well as other lifestyle factors that promote good health and longevity. Lastly, with regards to the environment and sustainability a careful analysis of the impact that various foods and food practices have on our planet is presented.

  • Cannabis: The Effective, Anti-Aging Agent

    Presenter: 
    Janice Vaughn, MD, MBA
    Original Date: January 24, 2016

    Research has shown that cannabis can play a significant role as effective, anti-aging agent. Cannabis minimizes the onset and severity of age related illnesses such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimers, dementia and strokes. Powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties reduce the effects of free radicals on the brain and body by reducing oxidative stress.

    Cannabis has been banned in the US for more than 70 years. Doctors have been afraid to use this amazing plant for fear of prosecution and loss of licenses. Is it time for doctors to consider medical marijuana as a strong alternative to big pharmacy drugs? Is cannabis really the miracle drug? Should cannabis be considered a daily nutritional essential? These are a few of the questions that Dr. Vaughn explores and answers in this presentation.
