EVENT POSTPONED - WILL BE RESCHEDULED FOR FALL OF 2020
'FOODS AND LIFESTYLE FOR A HAPPY, HEALTHY DISPOSITION' - BY NUTRITIONIST PAT OLSEN
LOCATION:  PALM SPRINGS PUBLIC LIBRARY AT SUNRISE PARK - 300 S SUNRISE WAY, PALM SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA

At this event, Nutritionist Pat Olsen, along with her special guests, will walk us through ways we can easily shift our diet and lifestyle to support our well-being and health. 

Learn how nutrient-rich foods and exercise can improve your overall health and well-being. Over the past decade, a growing body of research has shown that a healthy diet abundant in fruits, vegetables, grains, fish and unprocessed foods can contribute to keeping you happy and healthy. Pat will prepare a healthful and tasty salad and demonstrate how you can easily make your meals at home healthier.  She will be joined by Mario of Coachella Urban Valley Farms who will bring a variety of his locally grown micro greens fresh from the farm.  While he explains why micro greens are so good for you, Pat will toss them into the salad.  Isabel of Isabel's Naturals will provide a taste of her cacao-mushroom latte.  She'll tell us why superfood beverages are so good for us and how easy they are to add to our diet. We are grateful that Dr. Scott Buesing will also be on hand to answer naturopathic medical questions during the Q&A.

Pat Olsen, Nutritionist & Health Motivator:
In 1965 Pat Olsen attended a talk, in her hometown of Los Angeles, at a local health food store that would change her life and profoundly shift her health for the better. When her neighbor, who owned an organic cafe in Hollywood, California, took her to a talk by health and wellness pioneers Linus Pauling, Adel Davis, and Gladys Lindberg Pat knew things would not be the same, and they were not from that day forward. She went home, tossed out everything in the cupboard and replaced it with nutrient dense, living, “real” food. With the support of her doctor and these newly acquainted nutrition experts, Pat found herself off of insulin and feeling better. She has had no sign of diabetes for the last 55 years.  Seeing the wonderful results of her radical lifestyle change she was determined to help others in making such shifts in their lives. So Pat started her education, got a degree in nutrition, starting lecturing and became a significant force of change in the Los Angeles area. Pat even took people into her home, totally immersing them into a program that shifted their diet and lifestyle. During her carrier Pat was a pioneering press photographer and forensic photographer, working with Los Angeles area hospitals and emergency medical agencies. In her retirement, at 84 years young, Pat Olsen is still going strong giving lectures and consulting people on healthy living. Pat also serves as a senior nutrition advisor to Zebra Organics.

'A NATUROPATHIC APPROACH TO MENTAL HEALTH AND STRESS' - DR. SCOTT BUESING
EVENT ALREADY TOOK PLACE

Depression, anxiety, burnout, and stress are all extremely common in modern day society. Standard medical approaches, raising neurotransmitters like serotonin and norepinephrine with drugs have been shown to have limited benefits with concerning side effects. Yet, when you look at the research, it becomes clear that there are numerous contributing factors to how we feel and these factors are commonly overlooked by western medicine. 

Naturopathic medicine as a core principle includes the concept of "Treat the Cause". Individuals struggling with stress may have nutritional deficiencies, poor dietary habits, hormonal dysregulation, increased inflammation, infections and even toxicity in some cases that can contribute negatively to how we feel. 

A naturopathic approach can often help an individual significantly on their path back to wellbeing by identifying these problems and treating them directly. 

- Dr. Scott Buesing, Naturopathic Doctor.
