Class Topics & Dates:
Foods for Fertility - July 2, 2020, 6-8 PM
During reproductive years, ovaries are ready to release an egg each month. But that process is easily derailed. If hormones are out of balance, ovulation may not occur at all. In this class, we will learn how diet plays a role in fertility for both men and women. We discuss specific actions to get into better hormonal balance and tackle infertility.
Curing Cramps & Premenstrual Syndrome - July 9, 2020, 6-8 PM
Many people face conditions related to hormonal imbalance, including menstrual cramps, PMS, and endometriosis. In this class, we see how our food choices affect these conditions.
Tackling Hormone-Related Cancers - July 16, 2020, 6-8 PM
Certain cancers are significantly affected by hormones: breast, uterine, and ovarian cancer in women and prostate and testicular cancer in men. We can help regulate our hormones with the foods we eat. This class focuses on low-fat, high-fiber foods to reduce cancer risk and help enhance survival for those who have been diagnosed.
Reversing Polycystic Ovary Disease - July 23, 2020, 6-8 PM
Polycystic Ovary Disease (PCOS) is caused by a slight excess of androgens. These extra hormones can cause irregular periods, skin changes, polycystic ovaries, and infertility. They can also change body fat patterns and reduce insulin sensitivity. This leads to rising blood sugars and sometimes diabetes. We’ll review the causes and symptoms of PCOS and diabetes and show how to combat them with healthful food choices.
Tackling Menopause - July 30, 2020, 6-8 PM
This class will focus on menopause as a natural part of life. We’ll review how to minimize or even avoid hot flashes, unpredictable emotions, changes in sexual function, and memory fog.
Curing Erectile Dysfunction and Saving Your Life - August 6, 2020, 6-8 PM
A majority of time, erectile dysfunction (ED) is an indication of artery disease. The same narrowing of the arteries to the male genitalia that results in impotence also affects arteries to the heart, brain, and rest of the body. We’ll discuss how food choices often beat the little blue pill for ED, in a revelation that may save your life, or the person you love!
A Healthy Thyroid - August 13, 2020, 6-8 PM
The thyroid gland regulates our body’s use of energy. If it is not producing enough hormone, you will feel sluggish. Too much hormone and you feel revved up with a rapid heart rate and other symptoms. This class will set you on the right foot for following a healthful diet to support your thyroid if you have a diagnosed thyroid disorder and reducing your risk of developing one.
Foods and Mood - August 20, 2020, 6-8 PM
Evidence suggests that foods can help conquer moodiness and more serious problems such as anxiety and depression. Inflammatory foods can trigger chemical changes in our gut and brain and lead to stress and effect mood. We’ll discuss mood-boosting foods and create delicious meals to support your mind and body.
Avoiding Environmental Chemicals - August 27, 2020, 6-8 PM
We’ve heard about issues with BPA, phthalates, pesticides and more, but how can you keep your family safe from them? This class reviews common chemical exposures and how to avoid them. We’ll have cooking demonstrations and recipes for foods that avoid environmental chemicals.
