Wed, April 24, 7pm – Jayne Bell, the new Nutritional Health Coach at Natural Grocers, will describe how to succeed with a Ketogenic Diet in Keto 101. Mounting scientific research suggests that eating a ketogenic diet could represent one of the greatest nutritional breakthroughs of our time. Going “keto” is all the rage, but the diet is laden with conflicting ideas, disastrous oversimplification, and misinformation. In Keto 101 we’ll dive into this trend to understand the what, why, and how to succeed with ketogenic eating. The Keto Diet is a hot topic for good reason – it is great for weight loss and overall health. Be sure to invite a friend. Join us at the Denton Senior Center, 509 N. Bell ave.

Wednesday, February 20th, 7pm -Wynette & Nicholas Johnson from Artesian Wellness Health in Ft. Worth will present a program on Redox Health Therapy. As we age, cell communication breaks down, the signal weakens, and gene expression can be disrupted. What if there were a simple way to address this cellular breakdown? ... not just mask the symptoms, but actually attack problems at the source -- the genetic level? You might not know it, but redox signaling is taking place in your cells right now and is keeping you alive. The cellular messages are sent to cells by redox signaling molecules. The redox signaling molecules help the body know how to protect and repair cells. Every system of the body relies on them. The Johnsons will introduce us to a product that contains active redox signaling molecules, created through a process that reorganizes molecules of natural salt and purified water into redox signaling molecules. Come learn how to heal and re-energize your body at the cellular level. Join us at the Denton Senior Center, 509 N. Bell ave.
