"Food as Medicine" with Andrea Pryce, ND

Please join us on Tuesday January 6th, 2015 at 4 PM Pacific / 7 PM Eastern as we host Hawthorn faculty member Andrea Pryce, ND, for a webinar entitled “Food as Medicine.”  Log on early at 3:50 PM Pacific / 6:50 PM Eastern for the pre-webinar announcement segment that will include a brief interview with Dr. Pryce.

In 431 BC, Hippocrates said, "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food."  Today, the most powerful medicines are not found within the plastic confines of a pill bottle, but at the end of your fork.  Chronic diseases account for over 50 million deaths and will cost the global economy a predicted $47 trillion by 2030.  And when it comes to protecting our long term health and healing the ever-growing list of chronic diseases that are plaguing modern humans, food is by far the most powerful medicine available.  From super foods to herbs to eating the rainbow and altering our genetic code with food, what we choose to eat can have a tremendous impact on our health now and for generations to come!
