12:45-1:30 Why I Recommend Natural Yeast to My Patients
Dr. McClean is a chiropractor who began teaching the benefits of Natural Yeast to patients and community members with his wife several years ago. He found in his practice that if structural adjustments were not working in his patients, the problem was usually dietary. He utilizes natural yeast fermentation of a variation of grains in his treatment of these patients. Dr. McClean will share with us what he has learned about how consuming unprepared grains affects the human body through his own research and treatment of patients in his practice.

1:30-2:15 Natural Yeast Testing at Alpine Clinic
Natural Yeast Testing at Alpine Clinic Patty Jake is the Health Coach and Lifestyle Educator at Dr. Diane Farley Jones’ Alpine Medical Clinic in Highland.
