4/28/2016 Sarah Hinsch: ‘Achieving an Alkaline Environment Where Disease Can Not Thrive’

On Thursday, 4/28/16,  Sarah Hinsch will discuss ‘Achieving an Alkaline Environment Where Disease Can Not Thrive’, at the United Steelworkers Hall, Bethlehem. It is the featured presentation at the Spring meeting of the Lehigh Valley Chapter of The Weston A. Price Foundation. 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).

Sarah Hinsch is the owner and founder of the Lehigh Valley’s own Greenmouth Juice Bar and Café. After a lifetime of eating a diet that starved her body of minerals, enzymes, and phytonutrients, thereby creating a very acidic environment in her body, Sarah began to have some health problems. She was inspired back in 2005 to take control of her life and her health by shaking off the information she had learned by growing up in the 1980’s (the “fat free era”) and perusing studies in holistic nutrition, food therapy, and other healing modalities. In December 2013 Sarah became a Certified Health and Wellness Coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in NYC. She now owns Greenmouth Juice Café with locations in both Easton and Allentown.

Sarah will be discussing creating and maintaining a proper pH environment in the body by following the 80/20 rule of eating: 80% alkaline foods and 20% acidic foods. She will draw from the expertise of practitioners such as Dr. Rangnor Borg and Gary Taubes as well as touching on some controversial healing modalities for cancer. Sarah will also, of course, discuss the benefits of juicing and how you can use this powerful nutrition tool in your life.

1/28/16 GAPS Diet: Healing the Gut, Part II

On Thursday, 1/28/16,  the Lehigh Valley Chapter of The Weston A. Price Foundation will present the work of Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride in “GAPS Diet: Healing the Gut, Part II”, 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).

This is the second part of our hugely popular presentation on The Gut and Psychology Syndrome Diet. In this second DVD, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride will be delving into the diet itself and discussing ways to prepare foods to best heal and seal the gut.

Please note: there will be a brief recap of the Part I presentation so if you were unable to attend the Fall 2015 presentation, fear not, you can still benefit from part II.

     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.

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.

10/23/14 – Mark Smallwood: “Regenerative Organic Agriculture and Climate Change”

.
On Thursday, October 23, 2014, Mark Smallwood, Executive Director, Rodale Institute, will discuss: “Regenerative Organic Agriculture and Climate Change: Building healthy soil can reverse climate change” 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 this presentation:
.
Folks at Rodale Institute have noticed something significant about recent climate change reports, whether from large international organizations or small agricultural research stations alike. They have suddenly changed direction. Dire warnings and costly initiatives for slowing it down have given way to reports on how to deal with what is already coming to pass: warmer agricultural regions, super weeds, and extreme weather events like droughts and floods.
.
But Rodale Institute asserts that our food supply and our farmers, both affected by and so often contributors to climate change, could also be our salvation. Climate chaos seems overwhelming and unsolvable, but Rodale’s new position paper, “Regenerative Organic Agriculture and Climate Change: A Down-to-Earth Solution to Global Warming“, explains how we can begin reversing the destructive trend today.
.
On October 1st, their Executive Director “Coach” Mark Smallwood started his 162 mile walk, from the Rodale Institute to Washington DC, to hand deliver the Rodale research to United States Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack. On the heels of the Climate March in New York City, this walk is the next step in bringing widespread public attention to the benefits of regenerative organic agriculture in reversing climate chaos. Rodale Institute will use this opportunity to encourage Congress to create legislation that helps farmers transition to organic and supports existing organic farmers.
.
Mark Smallwood, Executive Director of the Rodale Institute, will discuss all this as the featured presentation of the October 2014 quarterly meeting of the Lehigh Valley Chapter of The Weston A. Price Foundation. Co-sponsors of this presentation: Alliance for Sustainable Communities-Lehigh Valley; GMO Free PA-Lehigh Valley Chapter.

About Mark Smallwood: 
.
Coach has been dedicated to promoting organic agriculture, environmental stewardship, efficiency and conservation for over thirty years. He is a long-time organic farmer and biodynamic gardener, raising chickens, goats, sheep and pigs, and driving his own team of oxen.
.
As Executive Director of Rodale Institute, Coach has focused his efforts on training a new generation of organic farmers. In partnership with Delaware Valley College, the Institute hosts a one-year organic farming certification program designed for military veterans. In addition, Coach began the Agriculture Supported Communities (ASC) program at Rodale Institute which brings fresh, high-quality organic food to underserved communities and provides an intensive training program for new or established farmers.
.
Coach has expanded research efforts at Rodale Institute to explore the connection between soil, food and health. He brought heritage livestock back to Rodale Institute’s 333-acre farm, created a Honeybee Conservancy to train and steward backyard bee keepers, and launched “Your 2 Cents,” a national campaign to support and promote new organic farmers.
.
Prior to joining Rodale Institute, Coach served as the Mid-Atlantic Green Mission Specialist and Local Forager at Whole Foods Market, and was the first Environmental Coordinator at MOM’s Organic Market. As his nickname suggests, Coach was also a public school educator and basketball coach.
