Lecture and Knowledge Class open to all ages

A staggering 50% of Americans over age 20 and 75% over the age of 65 have pre-diabetes or diabetes.  India has the highest cases of diabetes worldwide at 40 million while another 30 million Indians have pre-diabetes. 1 in 10 in China has diabetes.  Kirk Hamilton will show you that the world-wide explosion of diabetes is simply explained by five dietary patterns that occur with all industrializing countries. He will also discuss the role of environmental toxins, poor gut health and the role of inactivity in the diabetes epidemic. Kirk will also show you that carbs can’t be the real reason for the diabetes epidemic, and in fact a diet abundant in the right types of unprocessed carbohydrates rich in fiber and low in fat is the diet of choice for diabetes reversal. By applying these diet principles and Kirk’s “9 Simple Steps to Optimal Health” type 2 diabetes can be virtually eliminated from the planet. Kirk will prepare a 3 bean salad and lentil soup which are low glycemic and diabetes reversing dishes which contain slow release and “resistant” carbohydrates.  You will also receive a copy of Kirk’s book “Staying Healthy in the Fast Lane” whose theme is the prevention and reversal of age-related (chronic) diseases, such as diabetes, by the use of a low allergy, anti-inflammatory,  unprocessed plant-based diets.

Lecture and knowledge class – All Ages

Learn how to use a juicer, get recipes and the health benefits gained from juicing. You've probably heard juicing is good for you, right? But why? What about the fiber?  Learn  the pros/cons of different juicer models, how to use a juicer and clean a juicer, and how to maximize the nutritional value from juicing veggies and reverse many health conditions naturally. Fresh juice provides us with minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids, carbohydrates, proteins and much more. All of these factors are vital to maintaining good health. Although eating fruits and vegetables in their natural state does provide us with a substantial amount of vitamins and minerals, we can maximize the benefits from them when they are juiced. When we juice veggies, their goodness is released from the fiber and we are able to drink their highly concentrated nutrients which are then able to enter our bloodstream very quickly. Everything you've always wanted to know about juicing and more! Samples are provided.
