Botox at the Library?

With so much buzz and all the advertisements about Botox and similar treatments, it is easy to get lost in all the information.  

- Why is some Botox expensive, and some cheap?  
- Is Botox the only thing that can remove wrinkles?  
- What about creams?  
- Can the procedure safely be done is a salon or spa?  
- What if I get a counterfeit product?  

The answers to these and many more questions will be discussed by Dr. William Byrne of East Norwich in an enlightening presentation.  Bring your questions!

More Natural Remedies

More Natural Remedies and
Let Food Be Your Medicine

M.S.  Nutrition and Exercise Physiology

Last Fall’s seminar was a success!  Due to popular demand, we are doing it again.

All drugs are toxins, upset the delicate internal environment of the body, and most are not even effective!   Would you take pharmaceuticals long term if you could get better and safer results from non-toxic, inexpensive natural remedies, some of which you probably already have in your kitchen?  Did you know that there are a host of studies that indicate that exercise works better than drugs?

Nature abounds with health giving chemicals found in plants, including food.  Learn about natural functional foods, the medicinal and culinary herbs, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals that have the ability to heal and prevent illness without dangerous side effects.  You will learn about topical treatments for healthy skin, hair and nails in this informative lecture. 

Remember, however that the term natural can be misleading and even some foods can be toxic in excess.  Learn to recognize the difference between “natural” and “safe and effective”.

Bring your questions and a notepad to this seminar!
