My lectures

I provide nutrition lectures to a wide range of professional and casual audiences.

Your social club, business organization, or support group will thank you for arranging such an informative, fun and useful lecture. Most lectures are 45 to 60 minutes.

Some popular lecture topics:

The Super-nutrition Food Plan. Get your system in great shape. Eat well, and feel great. Reduce the cancer or heart disease risks in the family. There are so many newspaper and television stories with conflicting diet advice, they don't know what to do. I teach Caveman Cuisine: 100,000 years of genetic evolution can't be wrong. Be super- nourished eating: fish, roots, leaves, nuts, berries. Well' it's dining on salmon, sweet potatoes, spinach, strawberries and pecans for lunch or dinner. People at the lecture learn 21st century hunting and gathering. BTW, you'll reduce cholesterol, diabetes, GERD and blood pressure problems too.

The Ultimate Weight Control Strategy. Two thirds of America is overweight now; the majority are actually trying to lose weight too. But, what actually works? After Atkins, South Beach, Scarsdale and the Beverly Hills diet, what do you try next? High fat, low fat, high carb, low carb; what food scheme now? The real issues in weight management are: difficult metabolisms, hybridized foods, stress and fatigue. Plus, many people say, "I know what I should eat, but I don't seem to do it." This is a 1.5 hour, soup to nuts course in what to really do to manage weight. Weight is lifestyle; let's look at what that means.

Nutrition for Older Adult Athletes. Playing sports is a lot of fun. Fitness activity slows aging and prevents cancer. Many people find that getting competitive in their sport adds to their enjoyment. They like the challenge of cycling 500 miles in a week-long charity ride. Maybe running a first marathon or swimming in a masters' tournament is the way to celebrate turning 40 or 50. It's fun, but at these ages, recovery can be slower. Serious nutrition can speed repair. Having enough fuel helps people stronger, adding to the enjoyment of training and racing.

Metabolic Therapy for MS. In Multiple Sclerosis, nerve fibers are deteriorating. The latest therapy is injections of the immune-boosting substance called Interferon. These shots push the immune system into higher gear, but there is another part to the story. Is there enough fuel: vitamins, minerals, protein and other repair materials, to support an immune system shifted into over-drive? I am finding that a set of nutritional supplements, along with the healing energy modality called Tong Ren is helping people with MS feel dynamically better.

Metabolic Therapy For IBD. Gut discomfort is miserable. You probably know the intestines, spread out, cover an area the size of a tennis court. The intestinal lining needs replacing every 4 or 5 days. Very few patients or physicians understand how complex the ecosystem in the intestines really is. Steroids and immune suppression for Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis often feel like inadequate therapy. The real issue is what nutrients will best grow the new lining every 4 days, and what foods prevent the "itis" condition? Come to this lecture, learn a lot, and "get your shit together!"

Nutritional support for people with Hepatitis C. This virus attacks the energy-producing part of liver cells. The major complaint from people after years of Hepatitis C infection is fatigue. Diabetes risk is 4 times higher in people with Hep C. The risk of liver cancer is very tied to diet, both excesses of iron ,and deficiencies of selenium. There are starting to be treatments for Hep C, but they are quite toxic. Interferon injections with Ribavirin cause patients feel like that have the flue, 6 days out of 7., for 24 or 48 weeks! Careful nutrition support helps people feel better energy, in general, and reduces side effects of the therapy. Go to www.eatupbooks.com to buy my Hep C nutrition book.

Nutritional support for People with HIV. Both HIV infection and the drugs to treat it put a lot of stress on many body systems. Fatigue, nausea, high cholesterol, and body fat changes are all common side effects to cope with. Nutrition can make a huge difference in quality of life. HIV and aging is also a concern now, as having the infection raises the risk of developing of heart disease and senile dementia. Diet and exercise are the best interventions to change this risk as well. Go to www.eatupbooks.com to buy my HIV nutrition book.
