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.

     The GAPS Diet has its foundation in the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) created by Dr. Sidney Valentine Haas to heal digestive disorders.  Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride has taken SCD and evolved it further to create a full protocol for healing digestive disorders and subsequent issues.

Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride holds a degree in Medicine and Postgraduate degrees in both Neurology and Human Nutrition.  In her clinic in Cambridge she specializes in nutrition for children and adults with behavioral and learning disabilities, and adults with digestive and immune system disorders.

Dr. Campbell-McBride set up The Cambridge Nutrition Clinic in 1998.  She realized that nutrition played a critical role in helping children and adults overcome their disabilities and has pioneered the use of probiotics in this field. She believes that the link between learning disabilities, the food and drink that we take, and the condition of our digestive system is absolute. The results of her work have supported her position on this subject.

7/23/15 – Krisztina Powell: “Environmental Toxins in Our Bodies: New tools for detection and detoxification”

On Thursday, 7/23/15, Krisztina Powell, certified nutrition coach & holistic health practitioner, will speak about “Environmental Toxins in Our Bodies: New tools for detection and detoxification” at the United Steelworkers Hall, Bethlehem. Doors open at 6:30pm. The presentation begins at 7. Free admission (donations invited). Ample on-site parking lot is accessible from Center St (at the equivalent of 316 Center St, if you’re googling).

About the Presentation

“According to a study by the Environmental Working Group, blood samples from newborns show exposure to over two hundred eighty-seven toxins, including mercury, fire retardants, pesticides and Teflon—exposure that occurs even before they are born. Of these, one hundred eighty cause cancer in humans or animals; two hundred seventeen are toxic to the brain and nervous system; and two hundred eight cause birth defects or abnormal development in animal tests.” – Sylvia Onusic, PhD, in Wise Traditions Journal

Environmental toxicity is a great threat to our health. Toxic environmental exposure – like levels of heavy metal and toxic chemicals in the air and in water up to 1000 times higher than ever before in recorded history, a mineral deficient food supply due to changes in agricultural practices and depleted soils, a new vaccination schedule, bacteria, viruses, electro-magnetic pollution, and more have led to a lot of the chronic diseases we see today.

Krisztina’s presentation will provide information about products to avoid in your household and what foods and herbs can be helpful to incorporate in your daily life to keep you and your family healthy. She will also discuss a program that uses hair mineral analysis to reveal body chemistry as well as Nutritional Balancing and Homotoxicology (using complex homeopathic remedies) to gently detox your body of carcinogens and other harmful substances.

Krisztina’s presentation is the featured presentation of the July 2015 quarterly meeting of the Lehigh Valley Chapter of The Weston A. Price Foundation.

About the Speaker

Krisztina Powell, CNC, HHP, who comes from a family of physicians, had an interest in holistic medicine from an early age. She studied Homeopathy in Budapest, Hungary, her birthplace. Her second child, soon after birth, presented with serious health issues, ranging from allergies, digestive disorders, and failure to thrive. After exhausting every avenue Western medicine had to offer, Krisztina knew she had to try alternative medicine. Starting with Nutritional Balancing combined with Homeopathy she slowly built up her daughter’s health over the course of 5 years, Today she is a happy, healthy child with a bright future. During the last five years Krisztina studied under Dr. Lawrence Wilson, co-founder, with Dr. Paul Eck, of Nutritional Balancing Science.

About The Weston A. Price Foundation

The Weston A. Price Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt charity founded in 1999 to disseminate the research of nutrition pioneer Weston A. Price, DDS, whose studies of isolated nonindustrialized peoples established the parameters of human health and determined the optimum characteristics of human diets. Dr. Price’s research demonstrated that men and women achieve optimal physical form and health, generation after generation, when they consume nutrient-dense whole foods and the vital fat-soluble activators found exclusively in animal fats, whereas they have numerous physical form and health problems when they switch from their traditional diets to the displacing foods of Western commerce, such as foods made with white sugar and white flour, canned goods, and commercially-processed foods.

The Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the American diet through education, research and activism and supports a number of movements that contribute to this objective, including accurate nutrition instruction, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture-feeding of livestock, community supported farms, honest and informative labeling, prepared parenting and nurturing therapies. Specific goals include establishment of universal access to clean, certified raw milk and a ban on the use of soy-based infant formula.


1/23/14: Dr Mark J Augello: “Cleansing Toxins from the Body”

Weston Price documented the declining health that resulted when people in diverse cultures around the world got away from their health-giving, indigenous diets, after they had yielded to the displacing foods of modern commerce.

In addition to producing unhealthy foods, modern commerce has also been making the environment toxic. Dr Price died before he was able to witness all the negative effects of modern day toxins. Benzene, petroleum-based pollutants in vehicle exhaust, arsenic in water supplies, chromium from plating companies, formaldehyde in plywood and kitchen cabinets, Bisphenol A in plastics and canned foods, tetrachloroethylene at dry cleaners, PCB’s in fish and other foods and in pesticides, and heavy metals in antiperspirants are just some of the chemicals wreaking havoc on our bodies. These toxins get stored in our fat cells, brain, tissues, and liver.

Dr Augello will talk about how cleansing can rid the body of these toxins and allow it to once again function normally. He will provide specifics about the cleansing formula and supplements he uses in his practice.

He will also address problematic nutritional/digestive system matters: excess sugar in our diet (leads to obesity, peripheral neuropathy, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease), Candida overgrowth (from excess use of antibiotics and steroids), leaky gut syndrome, insulin resistance, leptin resistance, hormone balancing, stress and its effects, being overfed and undernourished, and proper nutrition.

Dr Augello’s talk is the featured presentation of the January quarterly meeting
of the Lehigh Valley Chapter of The Weston A. Price Foundation:
