About this Event
In a world ruled by processed and genetically modified food, the human population is becoming riddled with disease. Research is showing that processes like Alzheimer’s, diabetes, chronic pain, autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases all share a common symptom, inflammation! One of the most common chronic conditions that most Americans suffer from is chronic systemic inflammation due to poor diet.
What if I were to tell you that the food we eat can either push you towards or away from disease? Food has the ability to increase and reduce inflammation. We know through research that certain forms of the same foods either characterize it as pro- or anti-inflammatory. Knowing which foods and why they increase or decrease this process is incredibly important in bulletproofing your body from disease and reducing the signs and symptoms of an established disease process.
In this seminar, I will discuss why food is disease building, which foods and forms of those foods good or bad for you, and how to appropriately strategize a diet based on optimal health using information collected from the most up to date research.
