"The Specific Carbohydrate Diet" with Jenny Lass
 
01:03:33
Jenny Lass will give basic tips on how to implement the Specific Carbohydrate Diet -- learn about everything from important kitchen tools to sourcing and substituting key ingredients. Jenny will provide strategies for overcoming common challenges faced when starting the SCD, as well as instruction on how to fit healthy cooking into a busy schedule. She will also discuss common cooking methods and how to adapt your favorite recipes to be SCD "legal." Jenny Lass is a medical writer who, for the love of a good meal, became a cooking instructor, menu consultant and bestselling cookbook author. Jenny is known for her fine appreciation of all things edible, but when she was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2001, she feared that she would never eat her favorite meals again. Fortunately, she discovered that she had a knack for creating the most mouth-watering, digestible dishes that people with -- and without -- fussy stomachs ever laid their lips on, so she co-wrote the bestselling Grain-Free Gourmet cookbook series published by Whitecap Books and began teaching cooking classes and doing corporate consulting to help people with digestive disorders rediscover the joy of eating. Jenny recently completed the holistic nutrition program at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and expects to graduate by August 2010. She continues to find new ways to break cooking barriers and spread the joy of healthy, simple, delicious food.

Rethinking Inflammation as Repair Deficits with Dr. Russell M. Jaffe, MD, PhD, CCN
 
01:04:17
To achieve optimum health, the body needs to be in a state of tolerance and homeostasis. The immune system defends the body, protecting it from disease and repairs whenever needed. When this defense mechanism is breached, repair takes a back seat. Inflammation is another word for repair deficit. Dr. Jaffe will be discussing the nuts and bolts of how to achieve optimum health, boost the immune system and combat inflammation. Dr. Jaffe has had the privilege of contributing to the "birth" of modern integrative medicine. He works from first principles of biology to clarify the causal mechanisms of good health and ill health. His over 100 articles and invited reviews attest to his professional contributions. Dr. Jaffe is the founder and lab director of Elisa Act Biotechnologies and Perque nutritional supplements. He received his MD from Boston University School of Medicine in 1972 and completed residence in clinical chemistry at the National Institutes of Health. He is board certified in Clinical Pathology and in Chemical Pathology. He has received many awards for his work; most recently he was awarded the International Scientist of the year by the International Biographical Commission for his contributions to medicine, biochemistry, and clinical immunology.

01:14:01
"Using Targeted Individual Amino Acids to Overcome Anxiety, Panic, Worry, Negativity, Cravings and Emotional Eating" with Food Mood Expert Trudy Scott Supplementing with specific individual amino acids can raise neurotransmitter levels and balance brain chemistry, alleviating anxiety, fear, worry, panic attacks, and feeling stressed or overwhelmed. They can also be supportive in addressing other issues that contribute to or exacerbate anxiety, such as sugar cravings, emotional eating and addictions. In addition, supplemental amino acids can help with depression, PMS, poor focus/ADHD and insomnia, which often co-occur with anxiety. This presentation will cover symptoms of low serotonin, low GABA, low endorphins, and low catecholamine neurotransmitters. How to raise these neurotransmitter levels with the amino acids l-tryptophan, GABA, d- phenylalanine (DPA) and l-tyrosine, thereby improving mood and ending emotional eating will be taught. The use of glutamine to stabilize low blood sugar, leading to improved mood and gut health will also be addressed. Trudy says: "The amino acids are key to the success of my practice. They help my clients eliminate stress-eating, and make food changes without feeling deprived and only having to use willpower. My clients feel calm and happy right away, giving them hope, while their other health and nutritional challenges are addressed. Many people suffering from various health concerns could receive tremendous relief with the proper use of amino acids".

"Understand Your Nutritional ID:  One Man's Food is Another's Poison" with Glen Depke
 
01:06:03
Have you followed a recommended diet, only to find yourself constantly hungry, feeling fatigued and maybe even gaining a bit of weight? Are you sick and tired of sifting through the vast amounts of information on diet and nutrition and would truly like to find out what is right for you? Do you find yourself struggling with the concept of a "one size fits all" diet plan? Do you wish that you knew specifically which vitamins, minerals and supplements would benefit you most? If you answered yes to any of these questions, understanding your Nutritional ID is important for you. In this presentation Glen Depke will be teaching us how to determine which nutritional plan would be best for your specific individuality. The genetics as well as the functional health challenges we experience play a role in determining our Nutritional ID. Glen will discuss the concepts of biochemical individuality, Metabolic Typing, Nutritional Typing, Nutritional ID and a specific questionnaire that assists in determining which diet and nutrients may be of greatest benefit. He will also touch on fine tuning your meal plan, shifts in Nutritional ID as well as PH per Nutritional ID. Glen Depke, Traditional Naturopath, is one of our nation's leaders in hormone balancing, customized nutrition and enzyme therapy. Before moving to California, Glen was the Chief Nutritionist, Primary EFT Therapist and Wellness Director for the world renowned clinic of Dr. Joseph Mercola in the Chicago area.

"Zinc and Inflammation" with Janet Ludwig, PhD
 
01:01:27
Zinc deficiency affects nearly 2 billion people in the developing world resulting in growth retardation, hypogonadism, immune dysfunction and cognitive impairment. Additionally, the roles of this divalent cation in the human body have not been clearly elucidated, since the essentiality of zinc has only been known within the last 50 years. However, it has been clearly documented that the supplementation of zinc improves many conditions such as; acute diarrhea in children, the common cold, infections in the elderly, oxidative stress and generation of inflammatory cytokines. Janet Ludwig, Ph.D. has worked in this area of study specifically modifying cellular injury by zinc supplementation. This presentation will explore the following areas in order to begin to understand the therapeutic role of zinc in many inflammatory conditions: • Zinc roles in the body-metalloenzymes • Zinc as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent • Membrane stabilization by zinc • Inflammatory diseases ameliorated by zinc supplementation. Janet Ludwig, PhD has worked in the area of zinc and inflammation for more than 25 years. She was at the Division of Surgical Biology at the Arizona Health Sciences Center studying zinc and cell injury induced by alcohol and carbon tetrachloride, an effective hepatotoxin. Additionally, she studied the mechanisms and structural identification of the potent class of inflammatory mediators, Platelet-Activating Factors (PAFs), at the Department of Pathology, University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio. She has taught courses in inflammation, biochemistry and nutrition at various Universities. She also travels to Bangkok, Thailand to give nutritional advice in a non-governmental organization that aids in improving the conditions for impoverished women and their children. Currently she is on the Hawthorn University faculty in the DSC program.

Free Radicals & Antioxidants:  Their Role in Cancer with Kirsten Laverdure, PhD
 
01:07:33
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cancer is the number one cause of death worldwide. Traditional treatments of cancer use chemotherapeutic drugs and radiation. The majority of these treatments rely on the production of free radical species that damage the cell and genetic material pushing the cell to commit suicide. However, new data is emerging to suggest that, in cancer cells, increases in free radical production can actually help promote tumor progression and lead to drug resistance. Free radicals, or Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), are scavenger molecules that steal electrons from nearby substances. This process can lead to DNA mutations and alterations of both lipids and proteins within the cell. Low levels of ROS are required for the cell to live and proliferate; however high levels of ROS initiate a cell death response. Cancer cells, which are known to have numerous mutations, may have developed a way to use ROS molecules to promote their survival, and actually increase the proliferation process, leading to a worse prognosis. Given that the majority of current cancer treatments rely on the production of ROS molecules, we may need to re-think our view on both free radicals and antioxidants in the treatment of cancer. In this webinar we will examine the role of free radicals and antioxidants as they pertain to cancer. We will discuss the biological role that these molecules play in proliferation and survival. We will also explore the effect that traditional treatments have on ROS levels and what that may mean for patients. Finally, we will explore ways that nutrition can help counteract some of these deleterious effects produced by ROS. Kirsten Laverdure earned her Ph.D. in molecular biology from the University of Virginia, where she worked on breast cancer and how to make cancer cells more susceptible to standard agents using the body's own pathways. Her area of expertise is in cancer signal transduction and determining why cancer cells become resistant to treatment. Currently she is a postdoctoral fellow at the UCLA department of neurology working on brain cancer. Her research is focused on the role that free radicals play in promoting tumor growth, particularly in response to traditional chemotherapy and radiation. She is also focused on the role that antioxidants play in preventing cancer cell death and the metabolic changes that a cancer cell undergoes to promote cell growth. She has lectured extensively and presented her findings in this area at national and international symposia and has authored peer-reviewed articles. She has taught courses in human nutrition and performance, nutritionally based diseases and the global food crisis. Currently she is on the Hawthorn University faculty in the Doctoral program.

Prebiotics & Probiotics for GI Health and Immune System Functions with Stephen F. Olmstead, MD
 
01:25:43
There is much to learn about how a diverse, robust gastrointestinal microbiota is essential to the health of our gastrointestinal and immune systems. This presentation will review the critical role the gut microbiota plays in maintaining health. Participants will understand that the human intestinal microbiota functions as an organ and is critical for immune and gastrointestinal system maturation, colonization resistance, modulation of immune responses, and nutritional needs. The use of probiotics and prebiotics to support a healthful gut microbiota will be covered in practical details. Probiotics are microorganisms that when consumed provide numerous health benefits. A variety of probiotics are available to health practitioners; most of them are lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria. The disorders in which the beneficial use of probiotics is documented include antibiotic-associated GI distress, C. difficile-associated diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel disease, dysbiosis, urinary tract infections, allergies, atopic dermatitis, eczema, and lactose intolerance. Multispecies probiotics are generally more effective than single species formulas. Prebiotics increase the numbers and/or activities of healthful gut microbiota. Prebiotics are useful to increase Bifidobacterium populations and to support populations of healthful genera such as Eubacterium and Rosaburia that are not available as probiotics. Participants will learn clinically relevant prebiotic and probiotic interventions that are beneficial for a number of common gastrointestinal and allergic disorders. This presentation will foster an appreciation of the intestinal microbiota and provide participants with the knowledge needed to effectively use prebiotocs and probiotics to enhance health.

Nutrigenomics:  How Food Affects Our Genes
 
01:11:38
How do health-gene relationships work? Your unique genetic variations effect how your body responds to nutrients in the diet, and nutrition can affect how your genes are expressed. Nutrigenomics, or how does food affect our genes? Over the course of human evolution, diet has profoundly molded human metabolic capacities and thus paved the way for the emergence of modern diseases. Numerous studies in humans, animals, and cell cultures have demonstrated that macronutrients, micronutrients, and naturally occurring bioreactive chemicals regulate gene expression in diverse ways. The recognition that nutrients have the ability to interact and modulate molecular mechanisms underlying an organism’s physiological functions has prompted a revolution in the field of nutrition. In this seminar, we will take a look at how health-gene relationships work, how everybody’s unique genetic variations change how our body responds to nutrients in the diet, and how nutrients can affect how our genes are expressed. Dr. Andrea Pryce received her baccalaureate degree from the University of Alaska-Fairbanks and is a 2006 graduate of Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona. Dr. Pryce joined the faculty at Hawthorn University in April of 2014 and also serves on the faculty of Everglades University.

Say NO to Benzodiazepines for Anxiety! with Trudy Scott, CN
 
01:42:35
Announcements and Food News You Can Use! segment: 0:00 - 11:25 Trudy Scott Webinar presentation: 11:25 - 1:42:34 Are benzodiazepines more addictive than heroin? * Benzodiazepines can be prescribed for anxiety (and other conditions). Hawthorn University welcomes Food Mood Expert Trudy Scott, CN as she presents Say NO to Benzodiazepines for Anxiety! on Hawthorn University's Holistic Nutrition Webinar Series. Benzodiazepines are a class of psychoactive drugs that work by enhancing the effect of the calming neurotransmitter GABA, and are used to treat anxiety, insomnia, pain, muscle spasms and a range of other conditions. They are widely prescribed, particularly among elderly patients and may even be used off-label with children with autism. Use of this medication is very controversial. We know long-term use leads to tolerance, dependence, as well as adverse psychological effects and physical effects. Short term use is generally considered safe but even using them for 2 - 4 weeks can lead to problems for certain individuals. This presentation provides an overview of benzodiazepines; when they are used; who they are prescribed to; details about tolerance, dependence, and the many adverse effects; how to taper, including nutritional support during the taper; what to do instead of saying yes to a benzodiazepine prescription in the first place; and additional resources. * "It is more difficult to withdraw people from benzodiazepines than it is from heroin.” says Professor Malcolm H. Lader. The first ten minutes of this recording are reserved for our pre-webinar announcements and the popular Food News You Can Use segment with Mira Dessy (of http://www.grainsandmore.com) and Paula.

This presentation will provide the science behind the effects of foods on anxiety, social phobia and panic attacks. It will also address the benefits of foods and nutrients on health issues that often go hand-in-hand with anxiety disorders such as depression, addictions, emotional eating, digestive disorders and sleep disorders.

"Reversing Type II Diabetes by Implementing a Whole Food Diet & Lifestyle Changes"
 
01:16:18
Erin Chamerlik, MS, MT (ASCP) will be discussing current information on type 2 diabetes, a disease that has doubled over the past 15 years. The Centers for Disease Control estimates one in three people will have the disease by 2050. Efforts are traditionally focused on treating the key symptom, elevated blood glucose levels, with medication that lowers glucose while at the same time raising insulin levels. This archaic approach ignores the many nutritional and lifestyle changes that can be implemented to address the root cause of diabetes, the standard American diet and lifestyle choices. The great news is that significant reductions in hyperglycemia and reversal of symptoms of type 2 diabetes, is possible with a comprehensive approach utilizing an individualized whole food diet, a comprehensive supplement program and lifestyle changes that address stress, sleep, exercise and environmental toxins.
