In relation to the release of his new book Your Body in Balance, which comes out on Feb. 4. Dr. Barnard will cover the surprising effects of foods on hormones – sex hormones, thyroid hormone, insulin, and others—and all the mischief that can happen when hormones get out of balance. Specifically, he will cover the following in a lecture: infertility, menstrual cramps, polycystic ovary syndrome, hormone-related cancers, erectile dysfunction, menopausal symptoms, thyroid disease, diabetes, and mood problems, and provide guidance for healthier foods, with lots of recipes. Most people have no idea that foods can affect these health issues, and his hope is that they will feel empowered to make healthful choices.

Come see Dr. Barnard’s presentation on January 25th at 1:50 p.m. at Vegan72 The Big Event held at the Hofheimer Building in Richmond, Va.
