Susan Blum, MD, MPH
A healthy immune system is the foundation for preventing and treating all chronic illness. Whether you get sick often, have an autoimmune disease, are dealing with allergies, or just want your immune system to stay strong as you age, this workshop will give you the tools you need to keep your immune function strong and in balance. Dr. Blum’s Immune System Recovery Plan is a groundbreaking, revolutionary program that shows how anyone can cure the causes of autoimmune disease, strengthen the immune system, and bolster overall health.
The material covered will include: how to eat optimally to reduce inflammation and support immune function (this will include food demos and tastings); the use of guided imagery, sitting and walking meditations, and other techniques to lower stress hormone levels; the importance of a healthy gut and strong liver detox system; the different kinds of cleanses, including the role of juicing, juice cleanses, and fasting; and how to choose the right program for our specific needs.
Note: A materials fee of $30 is to be paid to the instructor for foods, booklets and handouts. Recommended reading/listening: The Immune System Recovery Plan by Susan Blum, and the Learn to Relax Guide and CD, available at the Center’s bookstore.

Members: $105 / Nonmembers: $115
This group will meet 4 times over a two-month period starting October 6th from 6:30pm-7:30pm. The additional meeting dates are October 20th, November 3rd and November 17th. Here is the schedule:
October 6th, Introduction: We will review an easy to follow food plan, healthy recipes, and specific supplements designed to support your health and encourage weight loss. You will also learn how to permanently repair damaged metabolic pathways that are causing you to carry extra weight. These lasting lifestyle changes will decrease your food cravings, increase your energy, boost your mood, and correct imbalances.
October 20th, Mindful Eating: Through exercises and discussion, we will explore your relationship to food, begin to understand your choices better, and learn to slow down while eating. With this knowledge comes the power to change the behavior that is not serving you.
November 3rd, Nutrition 101 in the Kitchen–Pantry Education: We will review the food basics, including the best oils, grains, and how to stock your fridge, freezer, and pantry with what you need to be successful. Plus we will check-in and discuss questions or issues that have come up so far.
November 17th, Nutrition in the Kitchen Cooking Demo – Anti-inflammatory Foods for a High Metabolism: this is an experiential session where we will go deeper into understanding what you should eat to be lean and feel energized. We will also have time to wrap up and discuss next steps.
This 2-month weight loss program is only $175 which includes 4 sessions, the book “The Slow Down Diet: Eating for Pleasure, Energy, and Weight Loss” by Marc David that we will use during the program, and a light meal and food demo in the last session. The 4 sessions are a package and cannot be attended individually, and do not include supplements.
