Munch vegan pizza and listen to Arthritis: A Natural Approach

May 15, 2013 - Carla Tracy

My friend and I both took a recent class from Steve Blake, Sc.D at UH Maui College as part of the EdVenture program. We were impressed with his knowledge of nutrition and his straightforward presentation style. He let us ask plenty of questions, too.

At 7 p.m. Friday, Blake will present a talk on Arthritis: A Natural Approach at the Cameron Center located at 95 Mahalani St., in Wailuku between the Maui Police Station and the Maui Memorial Medical Center.

While there, you may enjoy free vegan pizza baked by Flatbread Co. in Paia and refreshments.

According to Blake, one in five adults, and half of those over 65 have arthritis.

“Reducing inflammation is the key to reducing pain,” he states in a press release. “We need to learn which foods aggravate inflammatory joint conditions.”

Learn what essential fats can reduce joint pain. Find out about plant sources of omega-3s that are a safe and cheap way to decrease inflammation. Discover which vitamins and minerals in food help build collagen to support healthy cartilage.

According to his bio, Blake earned a doctorate in nutritional biochemistry and has lectured not only at UH, but Stanford University, McLean Hospital, and at Boston University Medical Center as well He’s penned the 2008 McGraw-Hill college textbook Vitamins and Minerals Demystified and A Nutritional Approach to Alzheimer’s Disease, Understanding Dietary Fats and Oils, Healing Medicine, and he’s co-authored Mosby's 2001 Nursing Drug Reference.

He was selected in 2013 by the International Biographical Centre as one of the leading health professionals in the world. He and his wife Catherine have a solar-powered organic farm on Maui and enjoy fresh and healthful fare as their daily diet.
