Benefits of Lymph Drainage
with Nicole Wirth, LMP
Thursday, Sept. 18
A healthy lymph system should purify up to 3 liters of fluid every day, yet most of us are so congested that barely one liter is moved in a 24 hour period. Having safely lost over 70 pounds through lymphatic clearing, Nicole knows that congested lymph is often mistaken for fat. Instead of facelifts, liposuction, and tummy tucks, dredging and clearing impurities through proper drainage will tighten, lift, and firm the skin. Learn the basics of the lymphatic system, how electronic lymphatic machines work, why lymphatic work is the first thing one should do after chemotherapy or radiation, and how even our emotions are impacted by the quality of our lymphatic flow.

Identifying and Treating Lyme
with Iva Talacko, AADP Certified Holistic Health Coach
Tuesday, Sept. 30
After a lifetime of poor health, Iva Talacko had finally begun to feel well when, in 2000, she became ill with a mystery disease. In 2003, after numerous mis-diagnoses, countless medications, and debilitating pain, migraines, back degeneration, skin issues, unable to work, she lost her home and vocation. Over the next several years, as Iva learned she had the classic symptoms of Lyme disease, she accepted that traditional medical intervention could not help her, and launched her own search for her answers. By radically shifting her diet and lifestyle, Iva eventually regained her health and now lives a relatively symptom-free life, sharing her experience and holistic health knowledge with others.
