       The talk, which is for anyone feeling tired, sluggish or frustrated with their health, includes helpful information about anti-inflammatory nutrition and lifestyle changes to encourage optimal health, including answers to such questions as “What is inflammation?”, “What does it do?” and “How can we prevent and reverse it?”

He has been interviewed by Self Magazine, American Spa, DAYSPA, Dermatology Times, Today’s Chicago Woman, Natural Awakenings, the Chicago Sun-Times, WGN-TV and NS Magazine.
