The Fundamentals: Optimal Sugar Balance for Daily Life
With Kathy Smart RNC, PTS, RSNA, HTC

Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome, and Obesity will each be examined from a therapeutic nutrition standpoint. This lecture will show the dangers of elevated blood sugar levels and provide ways to incorporate solutions into your everyday life.
Neuroendocrinology: The Hormone-Brain Connection
With Dr. Andrea Proulx BSC., ND, RAc.
You’re only as old as you feel – and this depends on how well your hormones and nervous system work together! Join naturopathic Dr. Andrea Proulx to discuss how balancing neuroendocrinology can provide mood stabilization for optimal health. Your brain is your central nervous system hub which processes outgoing and incoming hormone messages that affect mood, appetite, energy and more. However, your gut has 100 million neurons that are responsible for many of the same hormone functions. Both of these ‘brains’, with their trillions of neurons, affect every aspect of our mental health. Learn to use nutrition, exercise, and supplements to maximize the brain-hormone connection.
