4/26/2018 – Krisztina Powell: “Heavy Metal & Parasite Connection”

Please join us for Krisztina Powell’s presentation, “Heavy Metal & Parasite Connection,” at the Spring meeting of the Lehigh Valley Chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation on Thursday, 4/26/2018, at the United Steelworkers Hall in Bethlehem (enter via the large parking lot in rear at the equivalent of 316 Center St). Doors open at 6:30 pm. As is our practice, our quarterly meetings are free.
Ms. Powell believes that environmental toxicity is the greatest threat to our health. Toxic environmental exposure levels of heavy metal and toxic chemicals in the air and water are up to 1,000 times higher than ever before in recorded history. Additionally, a mineral deficient food supply due to the changes in agricultural practices and depleted soils, paired with other concerns such as vaccination schedules, bacteria, viruses and electro-magnetic pollution, have led to many chronic diseases we see today.
She will discuss common toxic heavy metals in our bodies and their sources in the environment. She will also discuss the eco-system of pathogens in our bodies and their link to heavy metals. She will discuss the difference between drainage and detox as well as share many helpful tools of detection and elimination. Lastly, ideas related to maintaining a healthy body will be discussed.
Krisztina Powell is a certified nutrition coach as well as a homeopathic practitioner. Find out more about her at www.KrisztinaPowell.com.

About Megan Sell

Megan was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease in 2005. She found that Crohn’s was completely debilitating. However, it propelled her into researching and education on the importance of whole-foods and nutrient density. She was chronically ill and her health was quickly deteriorating when she made the choice to treat herself naturally. She wanted to use Nature UNREFINED! No medications, no processing, no genetic modifications; just pure and simple, unadulterated Nature Unrefined. She found that organic and nutrient dense foods were pivotal and the critical factor in restoring her personal intestinal health was Lacto-Fermented Foods.

About the Presentation

When her second child contracted Lyme disease at the age of 5, it turned out to be a life changing experience for this mother of two. Her daughter, Natalie developed a bullseye rash after the initial tick bite. She was treated with antibiotics for a month but unfortunately remained ill. After exhausting the options of conventional medicine for Lyme disease and seeing no progress, Krisztina turned to her knowledge of homeopathy.

Combining her knowledge of nutrition and homeopathy with the principles of homotoxicology she was able to rebuild her daughter’s health. Today Natalie is a happy, healthy child with a bright future ahead of her. Krisztina’s success in treating her daughter’s Lyme disease has inspired her to share this knowledge with other Lyme sufferers.

About the presentation
As we tend to our herbal gardens the soil at our feet is teeming with life, microbia of all sorts. Similarly, the human body harbors up to ten times as many microbial cells as human cells.
What are these microbes and what are they doing? What do they tell us about ourselves? From weight loss and cancer, to chronic inflammation and even decision making, these bugs are playing a major role. Let’s take a look inside and see how we can foster a friendly family of bugs and approach wellness from a new perspective.
About Dr. Lindrooth
Dr. Lindrooth possesses unique knowledge, experience and perspective. She was trained as a doctor of chiropractic and feels that gives her a balanced view of health, integrating both science, nature and the mind-body connection. As an herbalist, she relies on medicine from the plants around us to support and nurture good health. Still an avid lifelong student, she studies the latest scientific research so as to better help her patients understand and make decisions about their health.
