How to Choose the Cleanest Packaged Snacks
Heather Bauer, RD, CND
Nutrition Expert, Founder
Bestowed Box
"Beyond fat and calories, look for snacks with clean ingredient labels. The fewer ingredients used in a product, the lower the chance you're eating artificial additives. Aim to choose packaged snacks with ten ingredients or less."
Bauer is a nutrition expert, frequent broadcast contributor and founder of Bestowed Box who can share a variety of nutrition tips on how to pick the best foods for snacking. With the recent decision from the FDA to revise nutrition labels and guidelines, making changes such as increasing calorie count visibility, bringing more call outs to the front of packaging and updating serving sizes, readers may be interested in how they can make educated choices when it comes to packaged foods for themselves and their families. She can provide both tips and recipes on how to fuel your diet with clean foods that won't deceive consumers.

Controlling Your Reaction to Stress
Kathy Gruver, Ph.D., LMT
Natural Health Speaker, Author, Educator and Practitioner
"Between 60 and 90 percent of doctors' visits are due to stress-related illness. In the workplace, literally billions of dollars per year may be lost because of stress. But stress itself isn't the problem. We can't control stress. Whether traffic jams, divorce, high prices, global warming, or just the slow checkout line at the market, stress will always be with us. However, what we can control is our reaction to stress. Many easy tips and techniques can help us cope better, whether at work or at home. These range from mini meditations to therapeutic massage, dietary changes, affirmations (the power of words), and so much more. I can teach you how."
Gruver has been involved in natural health for over two decades. With an emphasis on stress and mind/body medicine she helps others to conquer their stress, improve their lives and increase healthy outcomes. She is passionate about sharing the knowledge she has gained from her continued study in mind/body medicine, meditation, mindfulness and the role of stress in our lives. She is an award-winning author and the host of the national TV show based on her first book, "The Alternative Medicine Cabinet" (winner Beverly Hills Book Awards). She has earned her Ph.D in natural health and has authored two books on stress:  "Body/Mind Therapies for the Bodyworker" and just published, "Conquer Your Stress with Mind/Body Techniques" (Finalist for the USA Best Books Award). She has studied mind/body medicine at the famed Benson-Henry Institute for Mind-Body Medicine at Harvard Medical School and pursued further education at The National Institutes of Health. She has been featured as an expert in numerous publications including Glamour, Prevention, Men's Health, Huffington Post, Yahoo.com, Ladies Home Journal, Massage and Bodyworks Magazine, and Massage Magazine. She has written dozens of health and wellness articles and contributing posts, has appeared as a guest expert on over 200 radio and TV shows including NPR, SkyNews London, CBS Radio, and Lifetime Television, and has done dozens of educational lectures around the country.

Hormone Imbalances in Women and How to Correct It
Denny Kwock
President and CEO
Daily Wellness Company
"When you normalize a woman's hormones, she feels better, has more energy, and experiences less moodiness during her cycle. It also has cosmetic benefits, including better hair and skin. It makes it easier for women to maintain their ideal weight. A lot of it is related to declining hormones and perhaps endocrine disrupters that they may be exposed to in the environment."
Kwock is available to talk about the specific hormones (progesterone and estrogen) that begin to decline for most women in their mid-30s, and the steps that can be taken to correct that. Natural, science-backed methods to help correct hormone imbalance, as well as the health benefits of hormone balance. He can speak to the supplement industry as a whole, addressing the importance of clinical trials to validate supplement claims in light of FTC's recent cracking-down on companies that promote false health promises. He spent 10 years as a research associate at University of Hawaii School of Medicine conducting research in the areas of hematology, retrovirology, and molecular biology, including work on FDA clinical trials. He is an author of numerous medical research publications and has been granted several patents from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
