4 Weeks to Wellness Challenge for Hawthorn students & graduates

Team Hawthorn,

Our recent graduate and published author, Tarah Chieffi is running a 4 Weeks to Wellness Challenge program starting in October. Originally a community based program, Tarah is expanding this online and extending it at a steep discount of only $10/household for Hawthorn students and graduates. This is an excellent and affordable way to learn how to create, implement, and market a program (thesis project, anyone?)! 

About the program:
This is NOT a weight loss challenge; it is a challenge meant to teach people what real food is and some practical ways to work it into their lives, and also WHY eating real food is important.

The rules are no foods with refined sugar or artificial sweeteners, no fast food and no sodas. Label reading, which oils are healthy for cooking, and even prizes based on participating, and other tips will be shared. Tarah also provides meal plans and a grocery list each week, and free copies of both of her recipe eBooks.

To learn more or to sign up, please visit Tarah at: http://www.whatigather.com/ or http://www.whatigather.com/2015/09/time-to-get-junk-out-join.htmlEnter coupon code "Hawthorn" at the checkout.

Say NO to Benzodiazepines for Anxiety! with Trudy Scott, CN

On Tuesday, September 15th, 2015 at 4 PM PST / 7 PM EST Hawthorn University's Holistic Nutrition Webinar Series. will present Food Mood Expert Trudy Scott, CN.

Professor Malcolm H. Lader says it well: "It is more difficult to withdraw people from benzodiazepines than it is from heroin.”

Explore the use of benzodiazepines for anxiety (and other conditions) when  Hawthorn University welcomes Food Mood Expert Trudy Scott, CN as she presents Say NO to Benzodiazepines for Anxiety!

Benzodiazepines are a class of psychoactive drugs that work by enhancing the effect of the calming neurotransmitter GABA, and are used to treat anxiety, insomnia, pain, muscle spasms and a range of other conditions. They are widely prescribed, particularly among elderly patients and may even be used off-label with children with autism.

Use of this medication is very controversial. We know long term use leads to tolerance, dependence, and many adverse psychological effects and even physical effects. Short term use is generally considered safe but even using them for 2 - 4 weeks can lead to problems for certain individuals.

This presentation provides an overview of benzodiazepines; when they are used; who they are prescribed to; details about tolerance, dependence, and the many adverse effects; how to taper, including nutritional support during the taper; what to do instead of saying yes to a benzodiazepine prescription in the first place; and additional resources.

Please join us at 3:50 PM PST / 6:50 PM EST for our pre-webinar announcements segment.
