During the spring many people often suffer with mysterious aches and pains, and seasonal allergies, and do not understand why. Don't worry! You are not falling apart, this is the liver's way of releasing toxins and cleaning house. It's at this time of year that the liver works extra hard at breaking down fat-soluble toxins and sending them on their way to be processed and excreted by the kidneys, bladder, and digestive system. BUT, if the liver is overworked, congested or simply not feeling up to the task, all of your bodily systems can be negatively impacted. Astringent foods like lemons, apple cider vinegar and blueberries, as well as powerful herbs like dandelion, nettles, and red clover can support your liver as it prepares for an annual spring cleaning. It's time for you to learn how to support your body and stop the sneezing and suffering! Meet me LIVE in my kitchen on Wednesday, March 30th at 12:30pm EST to get the recipes needed to support liver health. You will discover the best foods and herbal remedies, and specific cleanses that can help your body naturally detox without all the discomfort.
With Roberta Kline, MD and Joe Veltmann, PhD The recent release of the 2015 dietary guidelines generated a huge buzz among nutrition and science experts and medical communities. While some experts liked the "guiding principles" nature of the report, others found little value in the guidelines and recommendations. Perhaps the larger question to ask, is whether the one-size-fits-all dietary guidelines in this report are at odds with where medicine and nutrition are evolving--personalized and individualized nutrition, prevention and treatment programs based on a person's DNA. Join Amanda Archibald, RD (Field to Plate) in a thought-provoking interactive chat with leading experts in Nutrition Science and Genomic Medicine : Roberta Kline, MD and Joe Veltmann, PhD.

In this webinar, learn about these Mediterranean islands and the lifestyle and food habits of the centenarians who live there.

Amanda Archibald, RD with Joe Veltmann, PhD To excel or be proficient in any sport today takes practice, the right kind of equipment, adequate nutrition, motivation and a set of athletic genes. Genes that bestow power, endurance, stamina, flexibility, superior muscle fiber size and/or composition, and the ability to heal quickly from an injury are just some of the attributes elite athletes possess. In the past, whether you got these athletic genes was pretty much a roll of the dice. Today, however, with advances in genomic testing we can identify: the type of exercise (endurance versus powder) that best fits your DNA profile, the type of nutrient deficiencies you may encounter which might limit performance, how best to recover from an injury and how to achieve peak performance. Pairing functional genomics with culinary nutrition translation provides a powerful foundation for supporting athletic performance. Whether you are working with competitive athletes, weekend warriors or clients interested in improving their health through exercise, this webinar will showcase the powerful potential of functional genomics and the culinary arts.
Your DNA is your internal genetic operating system. It is the software that runs your body. Just as a computer's operating system needs thousands of lines of code to function, the human body needs DNA to code for its biological functions. And it turns out that certain foods have more influence over your genes than others. Join us to learn about some of these foods and how they talk to your genes. Then step into our virtual kitchen and watch as we show you how to prepare foods to get the best out of your own personal operating system Joe Veltmann, PhD and Amanda Archibald, RD
