Join us each second Tuesday of the month for our networking dinner meeting at Piatti’s restaurant in Mill Valley, CA.

AUGUST 11  ~ 6:00 PM via Zoom

‘Weight Loss: Fact vs. Fiction’

Guest Speaker, Dr. Amy Shouse, MS, LAc, Acupuncture & Functional Medicine

Thriving, not striving, at your ideal body weight!

In this informative talk, Dr. Amy Shouse will discuss the all too pervasive myths floating around in the weight loss world. Simple sayings like “count your calories” or “eat less, move more” are thrown around casually by many well-intentioned professionals.

However, these sayings reflect beliefs that can actually be harmful to a person who is making genuine and whole-hearted efforts to acheive their ideal body weight. And, if someone repeatedly struggles to lose weight, they may ultimately give up, resulting in even greater health consequences.

About the speaker:

Dr. Amy Shouse, Acupuncture & Functional Medicine Practitioner at NorCal Integrative Medicine, works to help underscore the importance of understanding a multi-pronged approach to total health which includes implementing lifestyle changes, nutrition, exercise as well as surrounding oneself with a loving and supportive community.

With her work helping people with HIV/AIDS in the late 1990’s in San Francisco whilst studying for her B.A. in psychology from San Francisco State University, she then obtained her Acupuncture & Functional Medicine License from the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley, CA. Amy’s East meets West approach is a perfect system under which the practitioner can seek answers to health questions while staying rooted in a holistic paradigm.
