Topics covered during classes
The Effect of Foods on the Digestive System
Why some foods should not be combined in a meal.
Food gets broken down in the stomach and absorbed in the duodenum of the small intestine. What is left over is either an acid or a base. The Acidity of tissue negatively affects the absorption of nutrients and promotes disease, arthritis, gout, diabetes, high cholesterol etc.
An Ultimate Guide to A Healthy Immune System
The innate immune system is the first part of the body to detect invaders such as viruses, bacteria, parasites, and toxins, or to sense wounds or trauma. Upon detection of these agents or events, the innate immune system activates cells to attack and destroy the outsider, or to initiate repair, while also informing and modulating the adaptive immune response that follows this first line of defense.
The Impact of Food on The Endocrine System
The endocrine system, made up of all the body’s different hormones, regulates all biological processes in the body from conception through adulthood and into old age, including the development of the brain and nervous system, the growth and function of the reproductive system, as well as the metabolism and blood sugar.
Even though key nutrients play specific roles in maintaining your endocrine system, the best way to keep your endocrine system healthy is to eat a balanced diet customized for your specific needs. Eating too much or too little each day disrupts your endocrine system — excess fatty tissue secretes abnormally high levels of estrogen, and people with very little fat also face a risk of hormone imbalance.
The Nervous System: How Diet Can Affect The Brain And Spinal Cord
The nervous system transmits signals between the brain and the rest of the body, including internal organs. In this way, the nervous system’s activity controls the ability to move, breathe, see, think, and more. Healthy diets, such as those high in omega-3 fatty acids and curcumin, contained in foods such as salmon and the plant turmeric, respectively, can stimulate molecular systems that serve neuronal function and plasticity in the brain and spinal cord.

Metabolic syndrome is a collection of risk factors that increase the chance of developing heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Losing weight, exercise, and dietary changes can help prevent or reverse metabolic syndrome. Many aspects of metabolic syndrome are associated with “insulin resistance.” Insulin resistance means that the body does not use insulin efficiently to lower glucose and triglyceride levels.
