Your Health, From A-Z

During Lorna’s years of research into alternative medicine to help her friends and family with their health and after talking to thousands of women, Lorna knows that many women and men do not feel well, let alone ‘vibrant.’ In the midst of taking care of your family, your company, and perhaps the rest of the world, ask yourself, “Who is taking care of me?” You may need to re-evaluate what needs to be done (and who else could do it), learn to control the emotions that put you into a negative spiral and blind you to all the positive things in your life, or simply say, “No, I can’t take that on.” Lorna’s goal is to present you with alternatives to synthetic hormones and other drug treatments. Lorna provides the alternatives to give you everything you need to know to obtain vibrant health, from A to Z.

Build Stronger Bones

Our bones are in a constant state of regeneration as bone is being broken down and rebuilt. Hormones and our liver, kidneys, and immune system all work together to ensure that bone is maintained. Over time a gradual decrease in bone mass causes the bones to become porous, brittle, and fragile, increasing the risk of fracture. Bones of the hip, spine, wrists, and ribs are the most common fracture sites. Osteoporosis affects almost 30 million people; over 80 percent of those are women. One in four women and one in eight men has osteoporosis. Lorna discusses the nutrients to keep your bones strong for years to come.

Enhance Your Immune System in 30 Days

The immune system can be a friend or foe. Our immune army is constantly seeking, recognizing, and destroying invaders like viruses, bacteria, and parasites. The immune system is also involved in the inflammatory response. When the immune system is operating at peak performance, we are disease-free, do not suffer allergies, have no inflammation, and we feel great. Unfortunately, autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, etc., are on the rise and balancing the immune system is the answer. Lorna will discuss how to keep colds and flu at bay, control allergies, and put autoimmune diseases in remission.

Improve Your Brain Power


Fifteen percent of North Americans over the age of 65 have Alzheimer’s or some form of dementia. Memory decline is a common age-related condition but it doesn’t have to be. Scientists used to think that regenerating damaged neurons in the brain was not possible but we now know that not only can we reverse damage but we can also revitalize those cells. Strokes cause brain injuries that are reversible if we take the right nutrients. Lorna will discuss nutritional solutions for the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s, dementia, poor memory, recovery after stroke, and how to reverse brain fog and get better test scores at school.
