Nutrient Matching: Essential Nutrients to Achieve Best Outcomes for Women and Men

Christine Horner, MD, FACS - Guest Bio
Christine Horner, MD, FACS, is a nationally known surgeon, author and professional speaker and holds two board certifications: the National Board of Surgery and the National Board of Plastic Surgery. Horner was recognized as a leader in her field shortly after starting her plastic and reconstructive surgery practice because she successfully ran a national campaign to pass laws requiring insurance companies to pay for breast reconstruction following mastectomy. Her five-year crusade with the Breast Reconstruction Advocacy Project (BRA Project) led to the passage of an unprecedented federal law that was signed by President Bill Clinton in 1998, requiring insurance companies to pay for this specific surgical procedure. Horner is the award-winning author of, “Waking The Warrior Goddess: Dr. Christine Horner's Program to Protect Against and Fight Breast Cancer,” (3rd Edition) and her award-winning book, “Radiant Health, Ageless Beauty,” (Elgea Publishing).
  • Topic Info:Nutrition is such an important element of a healthy body, but many people don't have a full understanding of which nutrients they should be taking in -- or how much of those nutrients are needed to optimize health.

    One nutrient that can profoundly impact one's health for the positive is vitamin D3, which is sometimes difficult to get via "natural" means (e.g. food, sunshine). 

    Omega-3 fatty acids compose another nutrient group that is essential for health and longevity. Omega-3s are helpful for reducing inflammation, improving brain health, and decreasing risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and pre-mature aging.

    Listen as Dr. Christine Horner joins host Lisa Davis to discuss the benefits of these nutrients and more. Dr. Horner also discusses the most important nutrients individuals need in their different decades of life (30s, 40s, 50s, etc.).
