Adrenal insufficiency has already reached epidemic proportions in our culture. We see the impact of this health concern in symptoms of fatigue, weight gain, and sleep disturbances, as well as most chronic illness that people experience today.

Glen Depke, a faculty advisor for Hawthorn University, holds degrees as a Traditional Naturopath, a Bachelor of Science in Natural Health, and a diploma in Professional Holistic Iridology. He has also been trained in the Kalish method of assessing the three main body systems, emotional freedom technique (EFT), Metabolic Typing, traditional Chinese assessment tools, and German drainage therapy. Glen has become known as a master in adrenal insufficiency, functional healing, customized nutrition and gluten intolerance, and is often recognized as the “gluten guy.” He has worked alongside some of the most prominent healers of our time, most notably, Dr. Joseph Mercola and the staff at the Center for Natural Health; where he held the positions of chief nutritionist, primary EFT therapist, and wellness director. 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.

"Nutrigenomics: How Food Affects Our Genes" with Andrea Pryce, ND

How do health-gene relationships work? Your unique genetic variations effect how your body responds to nutrients in the diet, and nutrition can affect how your genes are expressed.   Learn More about “Nutrigenomics:  How Food Affects Our Genes” with Hawthorn faculty member Andrea Pryce, ND, on the Tuesday night Holistic Health and Nutrition Webinar – Tuesday January 20th, 2015 at 4 PM Pacific / 7 PM Eastern.

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.

Over the course of human evolution, diet has profoundly molded human metabolic capacities and thus paved the way for the emergence of modern diseases.  Numerous studies in humans, animals, and cell cultures have demonstrated that macronutrients, micronutrients, and naturally occurring bioreactive chemicals regulate gene expression in diverse ways.  The recognition that nutrients have the ability to interact and modulate molecular mechanisms underlying an organism’s physiological functions has prompted a revolution in the field of nutrition.  In this seminar, we will take a look at how health-gene relationships work, how everybody’s unique genetic variations change how our body responds to nutrients in the diet, and how nutrients can affect how our genes are expressed.

Dr. Andrea Pryce received her baccalaureate degree from the University of Alaska-Fairbanks and is a 2006 graduate of Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona.  Following completion of her ND degree she went into private practice in Scottsdale, Arizona.  She has a strong background in biomedical research with significant experience in both bench top and field research.  She has worked as a bench top research associate performing genetic oncology assays for a major biomedical research foundation.  Additionally, she served as a project coordinator for a homeopathy study co-conducted by the Southwest College Research Institute and the University of Arizona’s Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine.  She maintains a research interest in the epigenetics and nutrigenomics particularly as they relate to oncology.  In 2009, she moved to Florida and began working at Life Extension in Fort Lauderdale where she was Medical Editor for their monthly magazine.  Dr. Pryce joined the faculty at Hawthorn University in April of 2014 and also serves on the faculty of Everglades University.  She has recently joined the team at the Integrative Health Institute in Boca Raton, Florida.
