2021 Schedule 

Mar 6 – Graceful Aging with Special Guest, Susi Roos, RN    10am-12pm CT  Register Here
We used to think that aging well depended on the genes with which we were born and that we could credit or blame our parents for the way we experienced the aging process. Now we know that those inherited genes play a very small part in determining our physical and emotional health and vigor as age. Instead, many lifestyle factors, including diet, stress, sleep, toxic exposure, happiness and more actually have the ability to reprogram gene expression – something called epigenetics. Learn more about epigenetics, and how we can put it to work for us as we harness non-toxic solutions to create far more graceful aging.

Jul 3 – Evicting Cancer with Special Guest, Susi Roos, RN  10am-12pm CT   Register Here
It is still a widely held belief that cancer is caused by cancer genes we inherit through our lineage. Yet, we’ve known for quite some time that genetics is responsible for only 5-10% of cancers. All the rest are lifestyle driven and the typical modern-day lifestyle is indeed driving cancer to occur in 1in every 2 to 3 people. But the good news is that we can powerfully shift the cancer odds in our favor. In this presentation, you will learn how to use food, mind-body interventions, herbs, essential oils and more to become what I call a very inhospitable host for the presence or return of cancer. Remember, we are designed to heal, regenerate and be whole. We just have to support the body’s innate ability to do and become so.
