Do you want to feel fantastic? Of course you do! Join me for a 40 day KETO CHALLENGE starting mid August 2018 The program consists of eight 1-hour interactive lectures with many stimulating guest speakers to teach you all you need to know about thriving in nutritional ketosis.  The basic idea is that FAT is a superior fuel for the human body than glucose.  One molecule of glucose produces between 32 and 36 units of ATP (adenosine triphosphate, the unit of energy produced inside our mitochondria), whereas one molecule of fat produces 46 and up to 52 units of ATP.  That’s a huge difference when you consider that each of the trillions of cells in our bodies contain up to 10,000 mitochondria.  The metabolically active cells (brain, heart, kidneys, muscle) contain high number of mitochondria and collectively produce up to 10 pounds by weight of ATP every day.  Wow!  The shorter-lived cells, like skin and mature red blood cells, have fewer mitochondria.  Much, if not all, physical and mental illness is exacerbated by using glucose as a primary fuel.  Nutritional...

check out Salt and Soil in Juneau: https://www.saltandsoilmarketplace.com/ Our bodies are literally a walking, talking rainforest. The “ecology” of our trillion or so human cells, and the ten-fold greater number of bacteria (and 100-fold greater number of viruses) that co-exist within us all is deeply informed by our local surroundings – our geography.  The soil in SE Alaska was built up over thousands of years.  It is perfectly adapted to this environment.  When we eat food that was grown in local soil we too become better adapted to our local environment.

Cultivated foods have all developed mechanisms to protect themselves. Yes, they are “evolved organisms” and prefer to not be eaten. Mostly these toxic substances (called lectins) in almost all cultivated foods work to prevent bugs and birds eating away at the plants. But lectins can disrupt human gastric-intestinal health, and negatively impact brain function as well — including instigating food cravings.

I am starting to plan 10 days on the beautiful Hamakua Coast at an amazing retreat center with ocean below and mountains above. The location is a few miles north of Hilo on a biological farm which has pioneered the use of enzymes and soil micro-organisms to grow super-charged, nutritious and delicious food. The program will blend daily farm fresh cuisine, with several cooking classes, daily yoga and meditation, and 5 spectacular Big Island adventures.  Hosted by instructors Jennifer Weinert, Purna Yoga 2000 hour level teacher and organic farmer, and Emily Kane, ND, LAc, Purna Yoga 200 hour level teacher, author and practicing physician. Also featuring guest cooks, guides and farming experts.   Dates are January 1-10, 2020 so there is plenty of time to plan ahead. This will be an intimate retreat with space for 10 participants only.   $1500 includes all meals, excursions, group transportation and housing. Exclusive of airfare.  Program details TBA
