Classes and Events
Cooking classes can be arranged privately for small groups in a home or other space. I especially enjoy teaching lessons to support healing diets with nourishing ingredients and methods.
Learn to halt or even reverse tooth decay with nutrition.
If you or a loved one (child or adult) is struggling with tooth decay, you can experience relief and even reversal using nutrition and food choices. Join me for a discussion about how it's done... five years ago, I reversed my daughter's Severe Early Childhood Tooth Decay diagnosis and avoided emergency surgery -- in only 5 days. It's unbelievable, but to this day, regular, conventional dentists still confirm perfect recovery at every exam and her adult teeth are growing in strong and healthy. This method works and I will share everything I can to help you experience the same results.
