On March 16, nutrition researcher and New York Times bestselling author Neal Barnard, MD, was scheduled to speak in Asheville about his new book, Your Body in Balance. It will now be held virtually on April 6.
Dr. Barnard will share the science behind how food and hormones play a powerful role in fertility and menopause, sex-hormone related cancers, balancing the thyroid, type 2 diabetes, and regulating metabolism.
Dr. Barnard will be available for interviews before and after his lecture.
“Imagine experiencing years of unexplained infertility until a simple diet change sets things right. Imagine suffering from thyroid problems, cancer, debilitating menstrual cramps, or even acne without ever realizing that the solution could be as simple as the food on your plate,” says Dr. Barnard. “In Your Body in Balance, you’ll hear the stories of people who have overcome these health conditions and many others with simple diet changes, and you’ll learn the science behind why it works.”
Released Feb. 4, Your Body in Balance shares stories of people who have overcome these health conditions with simple diet changes. The book provides step-by-step guidance for understanding what’s at the root of many health issues as well as practical tips and 65 hormone-balancing recipes developed by cookbook author Lindsay Nixon.
Dr. Barnard is president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a faculty member of the George Washington University School of Medicine, and a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology. In 2016, he founded the Barnard Medical Center in Washington, D.C., to create a new model that integrates nutrition into conventional medical care. His federally funded diabetes research revolutionized the nutritional approaches to type 2 diabetes, and he now aims to empower readers with life-changing information on hormones and health. He has written 19 books on nutrition and health.
