A Martinez chiropractor hopes to show how diet can change and often improve health through a series of free seminars.
Dr. Jason McRae, of the Southern Health and Wellness Center, will conduct the first seminar at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Earth Fare, 368 Furys Ferry Road in Martinez.
"I like that (location) a lot," McRae said. "It works very well with what we are trying to accomplish: helping folks to help themselves."
The first of three seminars will focus on how dietary supplements can affect women's health, including premenstrual syndrome, menopause, fatigue and beating the "blues."
"We'll explain these health issues, where are they coming from, what organs are involved and, most importantly, how can these organs be fixed utilizing dietary changes or even nutritional whole-foods supplements with very viable options for folks," McRae said.
Dietary changes and using whole-food supplements are things each person can do after understanding the root of the problem, McRae said.
The series will continue July 22 with a seminar on digestive health, including discussion about heartburn, reflux and irritable bowel syndrome.
The final seminar scheduled for Aug. 5 on skin health will include a discussion about psoriasis, eczema and acne, and how to control them naturally.
McRae specializes in Nutrition Response Testing, in which he determines what organs or organ systems are not working properly and recommends whole-food supplements that can help correct the problem and get those organs functioning better.
"We approach it from a nutritional standpoint," McRae said, adding he does not use vitamins, minerals or herbs. "We utilize whole-foods supplements. They are very safe to use. They are safe for children all the way to seniors. They work very well with medications because they are food."
Everyone attending the seminars will get a personal screening to see whether Nutritional Response testing might improve health issues.
Space for the seminars is limited, so he recommends reserving a seat by calling (706) 869-7474.
