Save the Date! November Pasco Lecture Series: Dr. Richard Maurer, Author of ‘The Blood Code’

thebloodcode

Please join us at the Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library, 18 Maine Street, Kennebunkport for our next Pasco Lecture.  Join us on November 2nd  at 2:00 p.m. with our special guest Dr. Richard Maurer.

‘The Blood Code: What you learn could save your life’.

You make decisions daily that you hope will improve your energy and health–you change your diet, take a supplement or medication, or start an exercise class. But how do you know what’s right for you?

Join Dr. Richard Maurer, author of The Blood Code: Unlock the secrets of your metabolism (2014), to reveal how your well-intentioned dietary and exercise habits might be wrecking your health and what to do about it. Dr. Maurer wrote The Blood Code as your body’s owner’s manual: walking a line between a reference book and self-help guide–a recent review summarized, “No hype, just science you can understand and use to improve your health.”

Dr. Maurer will allow to see how your body may, in fact, be doing everything right–and with a few adjustments to how you eat and live, you can be happier, with more energy and less disease. But, you likely will have to do things you were told not to–eat a high fat diet, increase salt, limit whole grain, and skip the treadmill for weights.

This short presentation, with Q&A, will teach you how to understand and act upon your metabolic blood test results–your Blood Code. You can find the diet, nutrition and exercise habits that are right for you–finally free from misleading advice of medical authorities and headlines.

We are fortunate to be sponsored by the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation and Kennebunk Savings Bank (and our very own snack team). For more information on this event and the Pasco Lecture Series, please feel free to call the Library at 967-2778 or visit our website :  http://www.graveslibrary.org.
