Glen developed the system of nutritional typing used by Dr. Mercola’s clinic. His intention is to empower individuals to reach their health and wellness goals by addressing their individual imbalances while releasing any blocks that hinder them from this goal; whether these blocks are physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual.

Professor Chris Masterjohn's webinar draws a global audience!

We had a great webinar last night with Professor Chris Masterjohn, PhD, sharing his research and expertise on the topic of ‘Optimizing Health with the Fat-Soluble Vitamins and Their Nutritional Synergists’.  Hawthorn’s Director of Education, Dr. Janet Ludwig, PhD and several Hawthorn faculty members were in attendance. Terrific showing from Hawthorn students and graduates too.
I was impressed that so many people from around the world showed up at all hours of the night from their time zones to tune in for this important topic - from Ireland, to South Africa to Jamaica. One attendee Tweeted from South Africa and shared  “it’s midnight and I can’t believe I’m being taught by Chris Masterjohn. I have tears of joy because I’m so happy to be able to learn such valuable information. Thank you Hawthorn University”!

This was a great event, but if you missed it don’t worry, the presentation was recorded and is archived to Hawthorns’ website so you can view the presentation which includes some terrific slides. I did an interview with Chris before the webinar and Chris’s introductory remarks are so interesting and important to the topic. We concluded with a lively question and answer period which provided additional insights. The presentation provided a great deal of insight into the importance of eating a varied diet and not trying to fix health issues with supplements alone.

Chris Masterjohn is knowledgeable, clear in his presentations, and wonderfully gracious in his responses so I encourage you will tune into to this one.

Enough already!


The sheer volume of nutrition information available today can indeed be overwhelming!

What is one to do? "Stop stressing yourself out about what foods may be “bad” or “good” for you and start enjoying your life," shares Dr. Hedberg.  "Use common sense and eat mostly whole foods that we were meant to eat and you’ll be a much healthier, happier person."

Nicely put!

“Optimizing Health With the Fat-Soluble Vitamins and Their Nutritional Synergists" with Chris Masterjohn, PhD

Please join us for a special additional webinar this month on Tuesday September 23rd, 2014 at 4 PM Pacific / 7 PM Eastern as we host Chris Masterjohn, PhD, for a webinar entitled “Optimizing Health With the Fat-Soluble Vitamins and Their Nutritional Synergists.”  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 Chris Masterjohn.

In this webinar you will learn how vitamins A, D, and K interact with macronutrients such as fat and carbohydrate, minerals such as zinc and magnesium, and metabolic factors such as thyroid hormone and carbon dioxide, to produce health. We will cover how to achieve dietary balance through nutrient-dense foods and explore some of the promises and perils of testing for nutritional status. The webinar will conclude with a question and answer period.

Chris Masterjohn is currently Assistant Professor of Health and Nutrition Sciences at Brooklyn College in Brooklyn, NY. In the summer of 2012, he obtained his PhD in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT, where he studied the role of vitamin E and other antioxidants in regulating the metabolism of methylglyoxal, a potentially toxic byproduct of energy metabolism that appears to contribute to diabetes and cardiovascular disease. From the fall of 2012 through the summer of 2014, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Illinois in Urbana, IL, where he studied interactions between fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and K. He is now continuing this research at Brooklyn College. Chris has published eight peer-reviewed scientific papers, contributes regularly to Wise Traditions, the quarterly journal of the Weston A. Price Foundation, and blogs at The Daily Lipid.

“Understanding and Applying Allostatic Load Principles: A Model for Chronic Illness" with Dr. Jeffrey Moss, DDS, CNS, DACBN

Please join us on Tuesday September 16th, 2014 at 4 PM Pacific / 7 PM Eastern as we host Hawthorn adjunct faculty member Dr. Jeffrey Moss, DDS, CNS, DACBN, for a webinar entitled “Understanding and Applying Allostatic Load Principles: A Model for Chronic Illness.”  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. Moss.

In part two of this two part series on allostatic load, more detail will be presented to make the concept of allostatic load more understandable, particularly in relation to the underlying hypothesis of this series.  This hypothesis suggests that allostatic load principles can be used to not only better explain the true causational nature of virtually any client case presentation, but how to better and more cost effectively address the metabolic imbalances that are having the greatest impact on loss of quality of life.  In particular, emphasis will be placed on simple and cost effective methods of assessment and implementation that can be used to both identify and optimize these metabolic imbalances.

Dr. Jeffrey Moss, DDS, CNS, DABCN graduated from the University of Michigan Dental School in 1974 and practiced dentistry in Grand Rapids, Michigan up to 1985.  Having employed clinical nutrition in his practice for six years, he decided to use this experience and enter the professional supplement industry. In 1992 he founded Moss Nutrition Products, Inc., which provides nutritional supplements to health care professionals.  In addition, since 1987 he has written, for professionals, a monthly newsletter for professionals of review and commentary on many of the most controversial and cutting-edge issues that face clinical nutrition practitioners today.  He also co-authored the text, Textbook of Nutritional Medicine with Mel Werbach, M.D.  Finally, Dr. Moss has been a member of the faculty of the University of Bridgeport masters program in nutrition since 1999 and is currently teaching about vitamins, minerals, and assessment in his classes.  Dr. Moss is also an adjunct faculty member at Hawthorn University.
