Functional, Preventive Orthodontics for Healthy Children (6/23/18, 2pm - 4pm)

1 class (2 hours)

$20.00

Why do so many children these days need orthodontics? What are the causes behind crooked, crowded teeth, underbite and overbite? Why are so many children being diagnosed with ADHD, Sleep Apnea, TMJ (Temporomandibular joint and muscle) issues and related conditions? When is the best time, and what are the best methods, to start addressing these concerns?

The approach to food and nutrition we follow at Three Stone Hearth is inspired by the work of a dentist, Weston A. Price. He recognized the value of traditional diets after seeing the declining dental health of his patients in the 1920s and ‘30s, then travelling to, and learning from indigenous societies around the world.

In this class, we will discuss the causes of issues that parents are increasingly seeing in their children. We’ll explore new alternative concepts for early and interceptive orthodontics for children's growth and development, along with practical methods for healthy oral development and family lifestyle.

Mona Moy is a dentist with over 30 years of practice working with thousands of patients, with a focus on Functional, Integrative Biologic dental medicine for children, particularly alternative orthodontic treatments. Her education spans disciplines from the East and West. She is the only dentist to become a fellow of the American Society of Endobiogenic Medicine and Integrative Physiology, which looks at the health through the lens of integrated systems theory, grounded in the workings of the endocrine system, which produces hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, sleep, and mood.

Understanding Holistic Grazing (7/27/18, 5pm - 6:30pm)

1 class (1.5 hours)

$15.00

Can raising meat on pasture actually improve soil ecology and help combat climate change? “It’s not the cow, it’s the how!” Come learn about Freestone Ranch in Petaluma--a grassfed beef and land stewardship company restoring historically overgrazed land back to ecological vitality--and sample their extremely flavorful and nourishing beef, which we cook with in our kitchen and sell in our store.

Meet regenerative grazing advocate Ariel Greenwood, Freestone’s Grazing Manager, and learn about Holistic Planned Grazing and animal impact as a key part of their restoration efforts. Freestone’s vision is to reframe our relationships with the land, the animals, the people who care for them and the foods they provide us.

Ariel Greenwood is a conservation grazier and first generation rancher. Her work centers on working with large ruminants to be positive forces of change in California's grasslands, and she is passionate about inviting the public into the field to fall in love with these wild ecosystems and the domestic grazing animals that help maintain them.
