Copper Overload?

Join us on Tuesday March 5th, 2013 at 4pm pacific / 7pm eastern as we host Hawthorn University graduate Jane Snyder, MHNE, ROHP, RNCP for a webinar entitled "Copper Overload: The Silent, Unknown Scourge in Western Culture."

Copper Overload is on the rise in North America and worldwide. This topic is not discussed in the main stream media nor is it a well-known topic of interest to many in the health field. It has similarities to estrogen dominance and also explains the massive decline in testosterone in men in our culture. There are many health conditions related to copper overload and zinc deficiency which will be reviewed during the presentation. This presentation will discuss the underlying contributing factors to excess copper and zinc deficiency, the correct ratios of these two nutrients, and explore solutions to this health condition.

Jane Snyder, MHNE, ROHP, RNCP, is a recent graduate from Hawthorn University with a Master’s of Science in Health and Nutrition Education, and has a degree in Economics and a Diploma in Nutrition. Jane resides near Toronto, Canada, where she has been involved in nutrition for over twenty years.

Biochemical Individuality

Please join us on Tuesday February 19th, 2013 at 4pm pacific / 7pm eastern as we host Liz Lipski, PhD, CCN, CHN for a webinar entitled "Biochemical Individuality."

The concept of biochemical individuality is one of the cornerstones of holistic/integrative health. Each of us has a biochemistry that is as unique as your face or walk. This, along with our environment, helps to determine strengths and weaknesses in our health. We can see this by variants in genes; by preferences for one type of diet over another; and in the way that people may have the same diagnosis yet have a differing underlying cause. Join us as we look at the history of this concept, and how it is being applied today.

Liz Lipski, PhD, CCN, CHN, is board certified in Clinical Nutrition & Holistic Nutrition. She is nationally known for her work and expertise in the field of nutrition, food allergy and sensitivity and digestive health. Liz is currently the Education Director of the Nutrition and Integrative Health Department at the Tai Sophia Institute, the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), and the Autism Research Institute. She is on the advisory board for Food as Medicine. Dr. Lipski is the author of Digestive Wellness now in its 4th edition, Digestive Wellness for Children, Leaky Gut Syndrome and her newest book, The Digestion Connection.

Liz offers professional webinar mentoring groups to nutritionists, dietitians, and other clinicians who want to get hands training in whole foods and functional nutrition.
