Contact Mike Bauer, 265-2665

Ammi Midstokke, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Owner of Two Birds Nutrition, will unpack some myths or common beliefs, and examine the research and information available to come to a better understanding of the impacts of diets, nutrition, disease processes affected by them.

Some topics that could be discussed include:

- What are the benefits of diets like Keto, Intermittent Fasting, Paleo? Is there science to support the claims?

 - What are super foods and should we be eating them? Is bone broth the cure for everything?

- Where does supplementation fall into one’s nutritional choices? What is the science behind the claims for common compounds like fish oil, CoQ10, Magnesium, etc?

- How can the average consumer determine what best meets their nutritional needs? Where can they research facts behind claims for supplements or products?
