Did you know that conditions such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, ADD, Anxiety, Depression, Obesity, Infertility, and Insomnia can all stem from the build-up of toxins in our bodies? Toxic overload is one of the root causes of chronic disease and it can be a clue that one of the core systems in your body is not working. If you feel lousy, it's likely toxins. In this class you will learn about your major sources of toxins, how to reduce your exposures, and how to support your body in removing toxins. We will also provide an overview of the 8 Week Clinical Detox Program and answer your questions.

Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? Overweight and sluggish? Struggling to conceive naturally, or wanting to plan a healthy pregnancy? Detoxing is incredibly important to good health in general but especially before becoming pregnant. Women's bodies release toxins into the placenta and breast milk that can harm the baby if not removed before pregnancy. This clinical detox program is a great follow up to the Detox 101 class. Over the course of 8 weeks, we help you take real action to remove toxins from your body and learn how to minimize your exposures in the future. We use a combination of classroom learning, online resources, homework assignments, group conference calls to answer questions and provide additional information, and a private Facebook page to support your learning. We help your body detox through clinically indicated interventions, targeted diet and nutrition, nutritional supplements, personal care & lifestyle techniques.

Vaccines are now mandated in New York State for school and daycare attendance. While vaccines have prevented illness and saved countless lives, they also have some very real and possibly dangerous side effects. We will explore why some children experience severe side effects and others don't, how you can help prepare your child's body to benefit from the immunity that vaccines can convey, and what you can do to reduce the risk of serious side effects. The class will include prevention tips for the weeks prior to immunization, strategies to support children on the day of shots, and what you can do in the weeks following vaccination to detox the body and reduce side-effects.  

Has your child shown a sudden onset or increasing set of symptoms after a recent illness that include any of the following: acute anxiety, OCD or separation anxiety, or restricted food intake/extreme pickiness? If so, it may be a medical condition called PANS/PANDAS which is short for Pediatric Acute Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome. Other symptoms may include motor or verbal tics, depression, emotional changes, rages, irritability or aggressiveness, oppositional behavior, developmental or behavioral regression, a decrease in school performance or learning ability, sleep changes, urinary accidents or urinary frequency. This class will discuss PANS/PANDAS diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment options to empower you as parents to help your child.

Did you know that 1 out of 3 children and teens has symptoms associated with an anxiety disorder? Anxiety or depression is not only a mental health condition, but may be caused by a range of underlying physical conditions such as nutritional deficiencies, toxins, hormone imbalance, and poor gut health. Stress, diet and lifestyle choices also impact depression and anxiety. Learn what factors are most impacting our kids, and what we can do about it to help ourselves and our children lead happy, anxiety and depression-free lives.  While this class focuses on children, the information is also relevant for adults with these conditions.

Did you know that insomnia, brain fog, poor short-term memory, feeling exhausted all the time, weight gain and craving certain foods can be symptoms of prolonged stress? Stress can seriously affect the gut, hormones, thyroid, and your body’s ability to make neurotransmitters. If you have a stressful job, kids, or even just a lifestyle that is constantly on the go, then chances are your body and brain are paying the price. In this two class series, we will explore how stress and adrenal fatigue impact physical and mental health, as well as what to do to reduce the effects of stress on your body and improve your overall health. 

Does your child struggle with focus and attention related to subjects that they don't like, yet can have extreme focus in areas where they have interest?  Is your child always running, fidgeting, talking incessantly, or interrupting before you finish a question? Is it difficult for your child to complete everyday routines, or frequently forgets/loses items, or makes careless mistakes? Your child may suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder - with or without the hyperactivity component. This class will explore effective options to manage ADHD other than medication such as diet, nutritional supplementation, and lifestyle modification. We will also provide an overview of traditional ADHD medications and how they affect the brain and body. While this class focuses on children, the information is also relevant for adults with these conditions.
