Online Classes to help stay healthy during this time of sheltering
Greetings from Dr. Raby and everyone at the Raby Institute.
We are offering online classes via Zoom Video Conferencing to help with managing and improving your overall health during this time.
These 1-hour classes are focused on topics relevant to current challenges and will be presented by Dr. Katherine Chavez, ND and Dr. Theri Griego-Raby, MD.
Following is a list of the classes offered. Feel free to sign up.
Our online group health classes are a unique way to learn about a specific health topic—how a body system or organ functions, health risks associated with it, and what you can do to stay as healthy and strong as possible. Not only do you get an education, but learning with a group gives you the benefits of emotional support, motivation, and enriching discussion.
Current class offerings:
How we live and what we eat affects our health in every way. If we don’t get enough sleep, we move less, if we skip meals we may crave sweets and then not sleep as well, if we don’t eat enough fiber it changes our microorganism and can make us absorb more fat or crave more sweets. Everything is connected.
In this 6-week program we work together as a group to master the basics of diet and lifestyle. Throughout the course of the program patients will start to identify how diet and lifestyle affect their symptoms, and start to see changes in those symptoms including weight, energy, blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and pain.
Weekly online lectures by Dr. Katherine Chavez, ND and Dr. Theri Griego Raby, MD will include how gluten and wheat affect your health and metabolism; neurotransmitters and how they affect your mood, sleep, and even food cravings; the microbiome and how it affects your metabolism and health; we will also discuss immune function during the current pandemic and the winter. We will also have tips for healthy recipes during the holidays, how to indulge but not fall too far off track.
Dr. Theri Griego-Raby and Dr. Chavez will both be online to answer individual questions and provide insights into the presented topic.
Many of us know or had our doctors tell us what we should be doing, it is actually changing and making new habits that is the hard part. Join us to make it easier! We know diet and lifestyle changes are more effective in a group setting, here is your opportunity!
