Susan Lord MD: Physician Burnout Can Be Relieved And Prevented By Using Food as Medicine

Holistic physician Susan Lord MD will speak on “Food as Medicine” at The American Meditation Institute (AMI) 31-credit hour CME conference for physicians and other health care providers, October 22-26, 2019 at the Cranwell Resort and Spa in Lenox, Massachusetts. Entitled “The Heart and Science of Yoga,” this year’s 11th annual comprehensive training on Yoga Science as holistic mind/body medicine is accredited by the American Medical Association and the American Nurses Association to help identify, prevent and relieve physician stress and burnout.

At the upcoming conference, Dr. Lord will explain how Yoga Science can help physicians understand how what the mind-body needs to reestablish optimal balance and function. According to Dr. Lord: “This non-profit educational organization has been bringing together accomplished, dynamic medical professionals in support of physician wellness for 11 years. Collectively, The American Meditation Institute has taught thousands about how Yoga Science uses "food as medicine" to help heal the physical, mental and emotional imbalances in the human mind-body-sense complex. The practice of AMI Meditation and its allied disciplines optimize physiologic function from the cellular level on up––building health and resilience. As Hippocrates taught long ago, food actually is medicine. For most people, when they choose what to eat, they choose their state of health and balance.”

Dr. Susan Lord graduated from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and is in private practice in Great Barrington, MA focusing on prevention and treatment through mindful living and lifestyle changes. From 1996-2007, she served as Course Director for the “Food as Medicine” program at the Center for Mind/Body Medicine in Washington, DC.

The entire “Heart and Science of Yoga” CME curriculum provides quality, comprehensive and evidence-based education to physicians and other health care providers. In addition to “Food as Medicine,” topics this year will include a comprehensive overview and instruction on AMI Meditation, diaphragmatic breathing, mantra science, yoga psychology, epigenetics and neuroplasticity, resilience, mind function optimization, Ayurveda, easy-gentle yoga, lymph system detoxification and how to use the chakra system as a diagnostic tool.

The dedication, enthusiasm, and teaching methodology of the entire AMI faculty create a dynamic and interactive, networking experience for their students. In addition to Dr. Lord, other presenters will include Leonard Perlmutter, AMI founder and conference director; Dr. Robert Schneider MD, Dean of the College of Integrative Medicine and Director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention at Maharishi University; Anthony Santilli MD, board certified in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine; Sat Bir Singh Khalsa, PhD, Director of Research for the Kundalini Research Institute, and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School; Renee Rodriguez-Goodemote, MD, Medical Director of the Saratoga Hospital Community Health Center; Jesse Ritvo MD, Assistant Medical Director, Inpatient Psychiatry, University of Vermont Health Center; Joshua Zamer, MD, Medical Director for Addiction Medicine at Saratoga Hospital Community Health Center and Chairman of the Department of Family Practice; Anita Burock-Stotts, MD, board certified in Internal Medicine; Kristin Kaelber MD, PhD, board certified in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics; Janine Pardo MD, board certified in Internal Medicine; Gustavo Grodnitzky PhD, Chair of the AMI Psychological Education Committee; Jenness Cortez Perlmutter, faculty member of The American Meditation Institute, and Lee Albert, NMT, acclaimed neuromuscular therapist and gentle yoga instructor.

According to AMI founder and program director Leonard Perlmutter, “‘The Heart and Science of Yoga’ conference attendees can learn first-hand how to positively improve or eliminate the challenging symptoms of stress-related burnout and chronic complex diseases.” Joel M. Kremer, MD, who is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Rheumatology in Albany, New York and a recent AMI conference participant, is in full agreement. “This teaching has been an enormous benefit in my personal and professional life. I have less stress, more focus, and am able to serve my patients with greater clarity. It becomes surprisingly easy now to recognize the many clinical situations in which patients with somatic manifestations of 'dis-ease' could greatly benefit from Yoga Science.”

In addition to Dr. Kremer, numerous medical pioneers and healthcare professionals such as Dean Ornish MD, Mehmet Oz MD, Larry Dossey and Bernie Siegel MD have also endorsed AMI’s core curriculum. Following last year’s conference, Claudia Copelin DO from East Hartford, Connecticut said, “This was probably the best CME course I’ve ever attended. It provided useful information and practices that I can share with others, and taught me how to focus on my own health and well-being.”

About the American Meditation Institute 
The American Meditation Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization devoted to the teaching and practice of Yoga Science, meditation and its allied disciplines as mind/body medicine. In its holistic approach to wellness, AMI combines the healing arts of the East with the practicality of modern Western science.

NUCU Introduces Professional-Grade Premium Bakeware and Cookware at the 2019 International Home + Housewares Show

NUCU® a brand for the sophisticated home chef that enjoys creating meals and moments meant to be savored, will exhibit its superbly crafted collection of bakeware and cookware at the International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago, March 2-5, in booth S4413. Built to last, NUCU products are constructed with premium materials and an enhanced design that make them both elegant and practical.

The professionally inspired NUCU product lines of bakeware and cookware are designed based on 145 years of experience in manufacturing baking and cooking equipment for the professional foodservice industry from its parent company Vollrath – a brand that is found in both the back and front of restaurants and hotels around the world.

NUCU Bakeware 
NUCU bakeware is light weight and strong and makes baking hassle-free. Made in America, the sheet pans and cookie sheet are constructed of 100 percent commercial-grade aluminum that provides even heat distribution. The gold, nonstick coating provides exceptional durability, ensures food doesn’t stick, is easy to clean, and helps prevent overbrowning compared to darker colored, aluminized steel bakeware. The sheet pans, cookie sheet, mats and accessories enhance baking and cooking results and are all dishwasher safe.

The collection includes the following products:

Gold-Coated Nonstick Sheet Pan 
Sizes: Small 9.5” x 13,” Medium 18” x 13,” Large 21” x 15” 
The Gold-Coated Nonstick Sheet Pans are ideal for baking cookies, roasting vegetables or freezing fruits and vegetables. A galvanized, non-rusting rod in the two larger sizes prevent the pans from warping in the oven. They are ideal for use at up to 450°F (232°C) and available with optional accessories like covers and cooling racks.

Gold-Coated Nonstick Cookie Sheet 
Sizes: 17” x 14” 
The 14 gauge, Gold-Coated Nonstick Cookie Sheet is great for baking multiple batches of cookies for years on end. It features an edgeless design, which allows the easy transfer of finished baked goods, and its silicone handle ensures a secure grip and can easily be removed for cleaning. It is ideal for use at up to 450°F (232°C).

Pastry and Baking Mats 
Sizes: Baking Mats fit small, medium and large sheet pans; Pastry/Baking Mats fit medium and large sheet pans 
The commercial-grade silicone Pastry and Baking Mats are designed for home use in convection and conventional ovens, refrigerators and freezers, and they are dishwasher safe. The mats are ideal for freezing foods, making candy or rolling pastries. Naturally nonstick, foods release quickly and easily without oiling or greasing the surface, making this a healthy baking alternative and more environmentally-friendly than parchment paper.

NUCU Cookware

The NUCU cookware collection is designed with commercial durability for the home kitchen. All pots and pans are manufactured with five layers of premium stainless steel and aluminum for exceptional heat conductivity and cooking performance. Each pan is fitted with riveted handles that ensure a long-lasting, secure fit to the cookware body – whether on a stove top or in the oven. The ergonomic, encapsulated handle of the NUCU sauce pots, sauté pans and fry pans is designed for maximum comfort and balance. NUCU cookware is NSF-certified, offers superior heat diffusion and works on all range types, including induction.

The collection includes the following products:

Stock Pot with Lid 
Sizes: 4-, 9.5- and 14-quart 
The Stock Pot is paired with a lid that makes the home chef’s life easier. First, the practical recessed lip of the lid, with a concave design, lets condensation fall back onto the food to keep the moisture level consistent. Second, the dimpled center allows the lid to be temporarily rested on the pan edge for stirring accessibility and venting.

Sauce Pot with Lid 
Sizes: 1.7-, 2.2-, 3.5- and 5.5-quart 
The Sauce Pot is ideal for simmering meat or vegetable stocks, slow-cooking soups, chili and stews, and boiling pasta. The 5.5-quart features a helper handle with ample space between handle and cookware body for safe handling and room for potholders.

Sizes: 2.2-, 3.5- and 5.5-quart 
The Curved Sauté Pan is a cross between a fry pan and a sauce pot and offers maximum versatility whether making a sauce, a stir-fry or sautéing vegetables.
