We will discuss many of the most popular and contentious topics that we hear today, including:

  • Cultures that live long, disease free lives

  • Common causes of disease including: hyper-insulinism and glucose dysregulation, the Free Radical Theory of Aging, Other Theories of Aging and Disease

  • The 'Doctors of Nature' and how to implement them in your life

  • How to avoid the most common causes of death and disability in America: Heart Disease, Cancer, Alzheimer's Disease, Diabetes, Obesity, Auto-immune illnesses

  • Staying Young while getting old; understanding stem cells, telomeres, etc., and minimizing damage to the human body

Dr. Win Smith has been teaching natural and self healing methods as well as Traditional Oriental Medicine for 40 years. He is a full professor of TCM at the Southwest Acupuncture College, where he started teaching in 1981. He studied Oriental Medicine with Dr. Hsi Yu Tao, and has been in clinical practice since 1978 and licensed in New Mexico since 1982. He published the book Self Spinal Alignment and Other Life Extension Techniquesand its companion video in 1992. These techniques include methods of self adjustment of spinal joints in all segments of the spine, as well as rib heads and the sacro-iliac joint. Dr. Smith developed these techniques after suffering years of chronic pain as a consequence of his own back injury at the age of 16. Since developing these techniques, Dr. Smith has never required professional services to correct or treat misalignment or back pain, despite having been very active over the subsequent 51 years. Dr. Smith remains lithe and flexible, and is living proof that one can maintain spinal health with proper knowledge and self care techniques. 

Disclaimer: Dr. Smith nor the High Frequency Loft cannot and do not promise or guarantee resolution of any participant's disease or condition. All participants are encouraged to discuss treatment of their condition with their physician, including whether gentle active stretches are appropriate as a treatment modality for them.

Thanksgiving was such a hit we decided to do it again!

Join us for a healthy alternative to the normal culinary affairs. This Christmas Day Pot Luck Celebration will be all plant based.

Please bring a dish to share that contains NO animal products: Dairy (cheese, butter, milk or cream), Eggs, Meat, Fish, Poultry, Honey, etc. 

Please RSVP & share what dish you are bringing in the comment section below.

That can be as simple as replacing ingredients in your regular recipes, for example coconut oil for butter, nut milk alternatives for dairy, nut cheeses, whipped chick pea liquid makes a great replacement for eggs! If you are stuck at all on recipes don't hesitate to reach out to us for ideas. Please leave a comment below about what kind of dish you will be bringing so we don't overlap & end up with too much of the same thing. 

*If possible, please bring your own plate & silverware & serving utensils for your dish. We have some but not enough to accommodate everyone.
