Health lecturer has broad appeal

Canadian expert Lorna Vanderhaeghe to speak in Nelson.

Canadian women’s health expert Lorna Vanderhaeghe will be speaking at the Prestige Lakeside Resort in Nelson. Vanderhaeghe’s June 10 lecture explores how hormones are the foundation of our health and is based on one of her 12 books, Everything You Need to Know About Hormones.

Who might this Kootenay Co-op sponsored lecture interest?

“Any woman experiencing problems with acne, or their period,” said Vanderhaeghe. “Any woman trying to get pregnant; to know what tests she could have, what those tests mean and how to solve these problems. Women with classic endrometriosis and who are 30 plus, who are pre/peri menopausal, or have menopausal symptoms.”

The hormone centred lecture aims to provide information the author believes is the basic foundation to health. Vanderhaeghe said many women are shocked and horrified what happens when they start menopause. They lose 30 per cent of their skin collagen which helps prevent wrinkling of the skin.

“This is the first time in history that there are more women above the age of 50 than there are below 50. They are having difficulties with weight gain and rapid skin aging. These women are making a good income, are highly educated and they want to look good.”

There has been a massive increase in natural  health as people pay more attention and look for natural solutions. “Women have a huge distrust in prescription drugs,” she said. “Hormone problems are very difficult to deal with as they can’t be solved in a seven minute visit to the doctors office.”

This will be Vanderhaeghe’s first time speaking in Nelson and is very excited about the  lecture.

“There are always lots of demos and gifts for people,” she said.

Vanderhaeghe’s newest book, Beautiful Skin Begins Within, details specific foods and vitamins to create a healthy dermis. She pairs with Dr. Martin Braun a cosmetic rejuvenation physician who practices in Vancouver.

She explained that women are spending billions in Canadian doctors offices on cosmetic treatments. He noticed his clients with a diet full of proper nutrients and good food had better skin integrity and simply looked better.

“Women are spending a ton of money on topical treatments and its so important that they know what these procedures are,” she said. “If they use these procedures, they also need to know that continuing to take care of their skin from the inside will continue to help their skin. So many women are spending hundreds of dollars on topical collagen creams yet the molecules are too large to be absorbed through the skin exterior.”

Vanderhaeghe’s lecture is Tuesday, June 10 from 7- 9 p.m. The event is free to attend thanks to the sponsorship of the Kootenay Co-op.
