Come hear an ironic and unexpected nutrition story– that popular solutions to health problems may be dangerous to our health. Prevailing dietary wisdom from every camp (vegan to paleo) promotes high-oxalate foods as healthy despite the well-documented role oxalates play in kidney disease, in neurotoxicity, and in pain or inflammatory syndromes. By changing what you eat you can reverse pain, prevent kidney stones, improve your digestion, heal old injuries, improve your brain function, sleep better, and age more gracefully. Come learn how you can build a better body and brain with the low-oxalate diet, and finally feel good.
