Natural Health Consultant, Master Herbalist

Natural Techniques for Anti-Aging,
and Overall Good Health

Note: All lectures are from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

This season I will be presenting a complete series of lectures about the use of natural techniques, nutrients, vitamins and herbs for anti-aging, improving overall health and reducing the risk of chronic disease. 

The lectures will be at Ada's Natural Food Market located at the corner of US-41 and College parkway in Fort Myers in the cafeteria area. Bring your appetite, ADA's has some tasty natural foods available. For more information, call me at 239-652-0421 or Matt Hoover at Ada's 239-939-9600.

Each lecture will consist of about a 45 minute to one hour talk, followed by an open question and answer period of about the same length. Bring your questions and concerns, I'll try to answer them all.  The sessions start on Monday Dec 1st, and will continue through April. We will talk about specific herbs, vitamins, nutrients and specialty supplements that can help support various conditions.

Session outlines for December are below. I will publish additional outlines as time permits.  You need not attend all sessions, (although I would love to see you there) just pick the ones that interest you.  

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.

Dec 1 - Hormone balancing for men and women

 An in-depth discussion of the typical changes that occur in our bodies as we age. This session will discuss hormone imbalances that are unique to aging in both men and women as they progress from the 40ís to the 50ís, 60ís and beyond. We will discuss the effects such changes have in the body and the problems they cause, including chronic conditions like thyroid problems, sexual problems, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer, and other chronic conditions.

We will also discuss ways to test hormones using home saliva test kits; ways to achieve hormonal balance; how to overcome nutritional deficiencies that occur with aging, and the wisdom of prescription hormone replacement therapy (HRT). We will also have an in-depth discussion of the use of supplements and bio-identical hormones to help resolve imbalances.

Dec 15 - Understanding and Preventing Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a condition caused by an imbalance in the body's bone-building mechanism that results in thinning of the bones. It is a major worry for many women as they enter or pass through menopause due to the decline of certain female hormones (estrogen and progesterone) that help maintain bone strength. Men are also at risk, especially those being treated with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for Prostate Cancer, which typically consists of drugs that either lower or block the amount of testosterone made by the testicles. Another prominent cause of bone deterioration in both sexes are certain prescription medications, especially long-term use of steroids like prednisone and long-term nutrient deficiencies.

In this session we will discuss the myriad causes of osteoporosis, the value of supplements, bone scanning and hormone replacement therapies, and natural ways to prevent bone loss and improve bone health as we age. 

Dec 29 - Your Prostate, Your Libido, Your Life

This session carries the title of my latest book. In it we will discuss the various problems aging men encounter with their prostates. This will include, but not be limited to BPH, prostatitis, erectile dysfunction, inability to have an orgasm, loss of libido, urination issues, prostate biopsies and prostate cancer and watchful waiting for prostate cancer.  We will discuss herbs, nutrients, specialized supplements and various natural or medical procedures that can help a man retain his function without seriously jeopardizing his health.

Included in the discussion will be the efficient use of PSA and free PSA testing as well as testing other hormones, including testosterone, progesterone, estrogen and prolactin to determine what may be causing a problem.
