May 19, 2012       STOP the CHAOS!: Using Integrative Medicine in Primary Care to Effectively Treat Patients with Stress and Stress Related Illness

At University of California San Francisco’s Integrative Medicine Forum (open to UCSF  and community at large) Go to UCSF Osher Center to register for this event.

We are surrounded by stressful situations on a day to day and night to night basis. Repetitive sequencing of the stress response creates a cascade of physiological reactions that lead to disease in the human body. Patients come to the primary care setting with a multitude of these unpleasant symptoms, but the use of allopathic medicine alone falls short of adequately evaluating and treating these patients. We will discuss how practicing the art of integrative medicine in a primary care setting can be the most effective way to work with patients who experience stress and stress related illness and disease.

March 15, 2012: A Family Plan to Step Up Vitality

Open to the community and sponsored by the Preventive Medical Center of Marin. Reserve a spot by calling Julie at 415-472-2343.

Our culture is focused on weight as a measurement of our health. A healthy body and a healthy family is better attained by working with body composition and a long term healthy relationship with food. Encourage your child toward vitality and away from longing for the perfect body image which can lead to dangerous eating disorders.  We will discuss the biochemistry of body balance and how to use a family and friends approach to boosting your energy so that you may enjoy the benefits of an active lifestyle. Along the way you will discover how to become a fat burner, not a fat storer.
