Upcoming Lecture with David Gerhardt of King Bio: 8pm October 4, 2011 @ Baymeadows Store

For those customers and staff who attended David Gerhardt’s lecture on Homeopathy at our Mandarin store in June, the evening provided insight into the potential healing power of homeopathy. Gerhardt explained the importance of homeopathic remedies formulated with multiple potencies that allow the chosen remedy to work effectively in the treatment of acute, chronic, and deep health conditions. According to Gerhardt, when multiple potencies are included in the same remedy, the body selects the appropriate dosage and dilution needed to create change and speed the healing process.

As the evening and lecture progressed, Gerhardt invited those in attendance to walk with him to the King Bio section of our Nutrition Department, where he further discussed the products in relation to individual health needs. Overall, customer participation and response was enthusiastic! It was great to see people genuinely excited about the healing potential of King Bio products and we couldn’t be more excited for David Gerhardt to visit Native Sun Baymeadows on October 4, 2011 at 8pm for another lecture!

We hope that you will join us for a great evening of learning and discussion. Sign up sheets are available in the nutrition department of either store.

Note: King Bio products are available in the Nutrition Departments at both of our stores. Stop in with any questions, concerns or comments and be sure to check our sales flyer and blog for updates on King Bio products!


FREE Lecture on Anti-Aging Tuesday May 17th @ 8pm

Sally Byrd will be at Native Sun Natural Foods Market’s Baymeadows location at 11030 Baymeadows Road on Tuesday, May 17 at 8pm to give a FREE lecture “Collagen’s Role in Anti-Aging.”

A fibrous structural protein that occurs naturally in bones, connective tissues, and skin, collagen protects joints, ligaments, and tendons while aiding in the renewal of all cells within the body. As we age, the collagen in our bodies begins to break down, aging our cells, reducing the elasticity of the skin, and creating wrinkles. Join us as we explore the potential benefits of collagen supplementation, learning how collagen can help rejuvenate the skin and redefine the aging process!

Sally Byrd is a board certified and registered traditional naturo-path and author who currently works as the Director of Sales, Education and Formulation for Dr. Venessa’s Formulas™.

FREE Seminar “The Secret of Longevity” October 12

Tom Bohager, founder of Enzymedica and author of “Everything You Need to Know About Enzymes”, will be at Native Sun Natural Foods Market  in Mandarin (10000 San Jose Blvd, 260-6950) on Tuesday, October 12 at 8pm for a FREE Seminar on “The Secret of Longevity – What Everyone Needs to Know!”

With more than 54,000 Americans living past 100 years of age, some wonder ‘What is their secret?’ Though genetics often play a role it is only half the story. Learn the difference between lifespan and “healthspan” and how to make simple adjustments that will lead to a lengthening of both.

This is a great follow-up to Native Sun’s September lecture with Ian Keogh, Co-Organizer of Jax Raw. His lecture on raw food diets explained how enzymes are essential for health and digestion and that by heating food above 104-120°F most of us destroy these much needed enzymes. Keogh highly recommended his attendees see Bohager’s lecture saying, “Enzymedica is a gift to this planet.”

“I have had the pleasure of seeing Tom speak on two previous occasions at Native Sun and I was floored with both lectures he gave. So, naturally, I will be attending his lecture on 10/12. In fact, two of his books, ‘Enzymes: What the Experts Know’, and ‘Everything You Need to Know About Enzymes’, I consider to be modern-day classics on the topic, offering a thorough understanding of a topic that seems to cause confusion among nutritional advisors. I hope to see everyone out there. I’ll be in the front row taking notes!” said Keogh.

Seating is limited and reservations are required by calling 904-260-6950. There will be a book signing following the lecture.

FREE Raw Foods Lecture with Ian Keogh of Jax Raw

Ian Keogh, Co-Organizer of Jax Raw – Northeast Florida’s Raw & Living Foods Meetup Group, will be at Native Sun Natural Foods Market on the Southside (11030 Baymeadows Road) on Tuesday, September 14 at 8pm to discuss the basics of raw food, the scientific research behind raw food theory, and his personal experience with the raw lifestyle.

Raw Food diets are based on the idea that enzymes are essential for health and digestion, and that heating food above 104-120°F destroys these enzymes. Therefore a raw lifestyle promotes the consumption of uncooked, unprocessed, and often organic foods as a large percentage of the diet. This may include fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains and legumes.

Specific topics may include macronutrients, the human diet, digestion theories, raw recipes ideas and enzymes for health, longevity and weight loss. Raw food samples will be available.

Seating is limited and reservations are required by calling 904-260-2791.
