Tuesday Talks -- Judith Smith


Recommended Posts

Our Meeting Schedule – 10:30 in the BCP Theater

 

Tuesday, Mar. 8Judith Smith is the co-founder and Director of the International Clinic of Biological Regeneration (www.icbr.com). Her educational degrees, at the University of Missouri and graduate studies at Clayton University, were in the field of clinical nutrition. She is also a Fellow of the American Council of Applied Clinical Nutrition (FACACN) and served as educational coordinator for the ACACN from 1979 until 2007.  She practices Cell Therapy...an anti-aging treatment, developed by Dr. Paul Niehans in the 1930’s at his world famous La Prairie Institute in Switzerland..  Judith has clinics in both Nassau and Mexico. The goal of Classic Cell Therapy is to slow, and even reverse, the biological age of the entire body. The focus is on the immune system and the endocrine systems, as well as connective tissue. Breakdown in these areas is the cause of aging and most chronic disease. The idea is to look and feel as well as you can, as long as you can, and have the vital energy to pursue your interests. While preventing the aging entirely is not yet attainable, the process can be slowed considerably. There is free admission to this talk.

Tuesday, Mar 15 -- Elizabeth Farrell de Rios presents “Tree-To-Cup Coffee: The history of a single bean at Villa Estrella Coffee” Why do different coffee farms have different coffee? Ever wonder about different roasts? What happens between the fruit and the drink?  For over 120 years, our family has tended this lush upland valley, where we steward some of the finest coffee on earth. We will explore every step of the artisan process and answer many of the common questions about coffee farming in Boquete, and production generally. Noobies, coffee snobs, and hobby farm owners are welcome to attend! http://www.villaestrellacoffee.com/
