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

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.

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.

Friday Mar. 9th - 9:30 to 10:30 am - Preventable Problems of Aging
A discussion of some of the typical changes that occur in our bodies as we age. In this session we discuss problems that are unique to aging in
both men and women as they progress from into their 50’s, 60’s and beyond. While we can't overcome the effects of aging this lecture will discuss natural ways to maximize
health and avoid illness with a focus on natural supplements that can help mitigate common aging problems.
Friday Mar. 9th - 11 am to Noon - Effects of Hormone Balance on Seniors.
Hormones are the chemical messengers of the body, signaling virtually every body organ what to do and when. Aging causes hormonal changes that
often have subtle (and not so subtle) effects. Many older women start to see new hair growing in unwanted places, while men notice muscle deterioration and sexual problems as
well as unwanted breast growth. Medical hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can increase the risk of cancer and stroke, but natural techniques can help balance hormone levels
without adding new problems.
