All lectures will be at Ada's Natural Food Market located at the corner of US-41 and College parkway in Fort Myers. For more information call me at 239-652-0421 or Matt Hoover at Ada's 239-939-9600.

Lectures are approximately a 45 to one hour minute talk, followed by an open question and answer period of about the same length. Bring your questions, I'll try to answer them all.  The first session will be on Monday Jan 20th from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.

Come and meet me and get a feel for the contents of the rest of the lectures.  Feel free to attend a single session or all of them. Session Outlines are below.


Session One Jan 20th - Aging, Anti-Aging, Nutrition and Hormones: An in-depth discussion of the typical changes that occur in our bodies as we age. This session covers nutritional and hormone problems unique to aging in both men and women as they progress from the 40s to the 50s, 60s and beyond. We discuss the effects such changes have in the body and the problems they cause, including chronic conditions like diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer, and other chronic conditions. We will also discuss ways to overcome nutritional deficiencies that occur with aging, and the wisdom of prescription replacement therapy (HRT).

Session Two Feb. 3rd - You and Your Hormones
A discussion of the effects of normal aging, prescription drugs, and chronic health problems have on hormone levels and subsequently your overall health and well-being. This session will openly discuss many issues related to problems caused by hormonal imbalances like relationship problems, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, vaginal dryness and other sexual problems. A major part of this discussion is about bio-identical hormone balancing for improved sexual and overall health for both men and women.

Session Three The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly March 3, 2014
A discussion of the value of herbal and vitamin based food supplements. We show you how to read the labels to tell the good from the bad, what to use, what to avoid, and how to spot phony cures, rip-offs, junk science, and health hoaxes. The session covers the basic minimum of vitamins and minerals needed to maintain health, and how herbal preparations and lifestyle changes can help strengthen your body and reduce your risk of problems.

Session Four Chronic Illness March 17, 2014
In this session, we review illnesses that occur as a direct result of poor health habits, and most importantly, how to reduce the risk of getting them. The focus here is on natural ways to avoid many of the problems that plague our western society, like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, prostate problems, erectile dysfunction and other sexual problems, breast problems, cancer, osteoporosis, and other chronic conditions. This session covers some herbs, nutrients, and other drug-free ways to improve your health and help your body cope with any chronic conditions you may already have.

Upcoming   Session Five Herbal Overview Monday, April 7th, 2014
No one knows for sure how many plant species inhabit our planet, but there are about 300,000 names in version 1.1 of the plant list released in September of 2013, and this does not account for numerous undiscovered species that may exist in rain forests throughout the world. Many of these plants have powerful medicinal properties, and about 95 percent of our prescription drugs are originally derived from plants. In the U.S. there are less than 2000 plants sold as botanical remedies, and only a very small fraction (about 100) of the most popular ones are sold regularly. In this session, we discuss some of the medicinal herbs that can help you cope with chronic illnesses like arthritis, atrial fibrillation and other cardiac arrhythmias, diabetes, gout, high cholesterol, high blood pressure hormone imbalances, osteoporosis and other chronic conditions. 

Session Six Herbal Overview (Part II) Monday, April 21st, 2014
A continuation of the previous session with a discussion of some of the lesser known herbs of the Amazon, Asia and Europe well as a detailed synopsis of some herbs used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. We will discuss the benefits of some exotic herbal remedies as well as the dangers of self-medicating with herbal remedies without professional guidance.
