Lectures and Private Consultations for the 2017 Cruise
Keynote Lecture: Straight Bowel Talk
Everything you wanted to know about healthy elimination and more! The process of life is taking in nourishment and getting rid of what we don't use or need. If we can't eliminate what we don't utilize, health problems develop that are both physical and emotional in nature. We will discuss what in fact we "consume" day-to-day, diagnosing digestive problems, what is healthy and normal elimination, as well as food, remedies and self-healing techniques to improve digestion.
Lecture: The Art of Visual Diagnosis: How to See Your Health
Throughout the world in many traditional cultures there was an understanding that the outside of the body is a reflection of the inside. Visual diagnosis is a way of seeing an individual’s direction, the way a person’s health is going. Potential health problems can be seen much sooner than a medical test might show. In essence, it gives us the ability to guide our life and help us make the correct choices in diet and lifestyle. Warren will present this fascinating way to see our own health! Remember, our face never lies.
Lecture: The Kidneys: Key to Our Vitality
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is said that the kidneys are "our seat to life." They are our hereditary bank account. Our teeth, bones, nails, hair quality, will, physical and sexual vitality are all influenced by the strength and functioning of our kidneys. Simply put, they are our life force, and men's health is especially compromised when the kidneys are weak. This essential lecture will focus on how to diagnose your kidneys, what harms and helps the kidneys with regard to food, remedies and lifestyle. Your kidneys will thank you for coming to this talk!
Lecture: Temper, Temper: Loving Your Liver for Deep Healing
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the liver governs a woman’s body as well as influences men’s prostate health. Stagnation in the liver leads to a host of health issues including: hot flashes/heat in the body, irregular and painful menstruation, PMS, fibroids, breast health issues, eye problems, headaches, joint pain, irritability and many other common health concerns in modern society. Warren will discuss: how to diagnose liver health, lifestyle factors to support the liver and specific food and natural remedies that nourish this vital organ. Your liver will be happy you attended this class!
Lecture: Creating Dynamic Health
Creating and maintaining our health is something we pursue day by day. The most important question is, “Are we going in the direction of health?” Many people truly feel they are "health conscious" and making good choices for themselves, but their health is not improving. How can this be? In this inspiring talk, Warren gives insight from his 30 years of practice into what he has found are the most important aspects to create dynamic health. Anyone interested in healing will benefit from this lecture, as it is at the core of holistic health.
Lecture: Overeating: How and Why to Eat Less
Taking in more than what we need is an imbalance. Overeating is the single most harmful lifestyle habit most people have in common. Eventually this habit makes us hard and rigid inside, causing us to lose our flexibility and making us acidic and fatigued. Many health issues are impossible to heal as long as overeating is continued, as it simply leads to excess. Even good quality food can poison us if we take in too much of it. A very poignant, powerful session.
Group Consultation: Traditional Eastern Medicine Diagnosis - $175/person, 2 hrs. 45 min. Space is limited to max. 15 participants.
