For over 50 years, the medical establishment has vigorously promoted the notion that high cholesterol is a primary risk factor for coronary heart disease, and that a diet high in saturated fat and cholesterol causes heart disease. These hypotheses are widely accepted as fact by physicians and the general public alike, despite the overwhelming body of evidence that suggests otherwise.

During this two-hour talk, we’ll review scientific studies demonstrating that:

  1. High cholesterol is not the primary of cause heart disease..
  2. Diets high in saturated fat and cholesterol don’t cause heart disease.
  3. Consumption of so-called “heart healthy” vegetable oils is linked to heart disease, cancer and many other conditions.
  4. Statin drugs don’t reduce the risk of death for most people, and have dangerous side effects and complications.

You’ll also learn the latest theories on what causes heart disease and a truly “heart healthy” approach to diet and lifestyle that is supported by both modern science and centuries of traditional wisdom.

The presentation draws on more than 150 peer-reviewed studies published in major journals and the work of an impressive list of physicians, scientists and researchers who question the connection between cholesterol and heart disease.

I will be offering a FREE talk on the holistic treatment of depression on September 24th, from 7:00 – 9:00 PM at the Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley, CA.

The World Health Organization states that depression is the leading cause of disability, affecting more than 120 million people worldwide. Antidepressants are now the most popular class of drugs in the U.S., and their use has been growing rapidly over the past two decades. From 1990 to 2000, prescriptions for SSRIs (the leading class of antidepressant drugs) rose by a staggering 1300%. In the last year alone, 30 million patients in the U.S. spent over $12 billion on antidepressants.

However, despite their aggressive promotion and widespread use, recent evidence suggests that antidepressants are not as effective as we have been led to believe. Other studies have raised concerns about the long-term safety of antidepressant drugs, including a potential increase in suicidal behavior in both children and adults.

In this two-hour presentation, you’ll learn about several non-drug treatments that are clinically proven to be at least as effective as antidepressants for relieving depression in all but the most severe cases. We will also review various theories on the nature and causes of depression, drawing upon both modern science and traditional wisdom.

WARNING: Withdrawal from antidepressant drugs must be very gradual, and should always be done under the supervision of a licensed medical professional. Do not, under any circumstances, stop taking your medication without such supervision.
