Nick Yanicelli introduced the program speaker Christine Tyrrell. Christine is a Nutraceutical Consultant with NEUTRAMETRIX, and talked to us about an educational natural health seminar. She discussed custom wellness solutions, isotonic nutraceuticals and weight management, including asthma, allergies, HBP, heartburn, digestive health, managing blood sugar, immune system building, prostate health and more.
Ms. Tyrrell is a registered nurse with 17 years of experience. She previously was employed at Stamford Hospital, Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care, and Experienced Pediatrics. She received her nursing education at Norwalk Community College.
Her talk focused on a nutritional approach to health that incorporates a health-promoting nutrient-dense diet and essential supplementation with vitamins/minerals, specific fatty acids, probiotics, and physiologic doses of vitamin D3. This nutritional protocol has shown benefits for disease treatment, disease prevention, and health maintenance and restoration.
