Are you a little bored of the same old messages about food and nutrition? Have you noticed that our collective approach to eating, weight and health isn't working? Have you been confused by the endless amount of nutritional systems put forward by the experts that all say something different? Have you been looking for a way to take your health and metabolism to the next great place without the struggle and the fight? Join Marc David, Nutritional Psychologist, author and Founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating for a fascinating class on the Secrets of Mind Body Nutrition. Learn easy-to-practice tools and techniques that you can use with yourself, your clients, and your loved ones to truly enhance your nutritional metabolism and positively transform your relationship with food. For far too long, the collective conversation around nutrition has focused on outdated science - a preoccupation with good foods and bad ones, and an approach to the body devoid of subtlety, energetics, emotion, and the impact of the psyche on physiology. It's time for a new vision of nutrition. You'll discover how what we eat is only half the story of good nutrition. The other half is who we are as eaters. That is, how we think, feel, believe, and show up in the world dramatically impacts digestion, assimilation, and calorie burning capacity. It's time for a fresh and inspiring conversation when it comes to eating. We'll call upon the wisdom of clinical nutrition, mind body science, functional medicine positive psychology, and the traditions of Yoga, Buddhism and timeless spiritual teachings to find a new way to nourish ourselves. This course promises to open up some surprising new possibilities for your nutritional health, and personal empowerment.
In this interactive session with Dr. Junger, he will be going over how detoxification is especially necessary in a world filled with fast food, fast cars, and hard living. Detox allows the body to "catch up" and allows it to heal itself.
Learn how the energy of our food directly impacts health and mood, and why so many “healthy” eaters often feel run down, sick and tired. Discover simple tips for energizing and fully nourishing your body with delicious, nutritious foods in keeping with the cycles of nature.

Founder of the Clean Program, was born in Uruguay. He graduated from medical school there in 1990 and moved to New York City for his postgraduate training. He completed three years of training in Internal Medicine at NYU Downtown Hospital and three more years of fellowship in Cardiovascular Diseases at Lenox Hill Hospital. The drastic change in lifestyle and diet resulting from his move to New York City soon showed up as irritable bowel syndrome and depression. Becoming a patient of the system he was practicing was such a shock, that it started his journey in search of an alternative solution to his health problems. His findings are the subject of his first book, Clean: The Revolutionary Program To Restore the Body’s Natural Ability to Heal Itself, where Dr. Junger describes how he became aware of the toxicity of our planet. He also explains how detoxification and cleansing have been around for thousands of years, but the knowledge has been lost, and right now it’s more important than ever to reclaim this information. Most importantly, Clean is a manual for readers to learn how to turn on and work with their own detoxification systems to restore and maintain optimal health.
Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., received his B.A. from Yale University and his M.D. from Western Reserve University. In 1956, pulling the No. 6 oar as a member of the victorious United States rowing team, he was awarded a gold medal at the Olympic Games. He was trained as a surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic and at St. George's Hospital in London. In 1968, as an Army surgeon in Vietnam, he was awarded the Bronze Star. His scientific publications number over 150, "The Best Doctors in America" 1994-1995 published by Woodward and White cites Dr. Esselstyn's surgical expertise in the categories of endocrine and breast disease. In 1995 he published his bench mark long-term nutritional research arresting and reversing coronary artery disease in severely ill patients. That same study was updated at 12 years and reviewed beyond twenty years in his book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, making it one of the longest longitudinal studies of its type. It is most compelling, as no compliant patients have sustained disease progression. Today, beyond 20 years compliant patients continue to thrive.
