I have spoken to many of you about this fall event and told you I would post an announcement when class starts; so here it is. I have been asked to teach a class at Tacoma Community College, Gig Harbor, WA campus beginning on October 10, 2017. The class will be a series of one hour talks commencing that evening (Tuesday) from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. The course will cover the following: 1) An Historical Perspective of Nutrition in America; 2) Omega-6/Trans Fats; 3) Omega-3 Fats; 4) Fructose and Metabolic Syndrome; 5) Carbohydrate Metabolism and It’s Consequences on our Health and 6) How to Establish and Maintain Nutritional Health.

I have been studying various aspects of these topics for a quarter of a century and those investigations led to writing three books in an attempt to educate my patients about fatty liver, esophageal reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease and so much more. I didn’t have enough hours in a day to teach my patients what I had learned and that they needed to know to find nutritional health in this information overloaded world we experience now (see yesterday’s post). The information I present in this course is not found in medical textbooks but is all found in the National Library of Medicine.

If this class peaks your interest, I would be flattered to have you as a student for six weeks. You must contact Tacoma Community College to register for the class. Their phone number is: 253-460-2424. They can be contacted at: and they have a facebook page: I was told by Tacoma Community College yesterday that they make decisions about whether they will run a class based on their preregistration numbers. If you or a friend are interested in attending this class, please preregister now so that we can guarantee its existence next month. If you have any questions about the class, please feel free to log in to my website and query me. Have a healthy weekend.
