Noted Nutrition Expert and Health Educator to Talk at the Hudson School April 25th 7-8pm – Open to Public

Filed under: Healthy Hoboken,Hoboken — Tags: , , , — TheBoken @ 9:00 AM

Noted Nutrition Expert and Health Educator to Talk at the Hudson School

April 25th 7-8pm – Open to Public

Laura LaganoLaura Lagano, a registered dietitian, nutrition expert and health educator who espouses a holistic approach to healthcare called functional medicine, will speak at the Hudson School. Her talk is scheduled for April 25, 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. (Open to the public – $10 non-Hudson families, $7 Hudson parents, Hudson students may attend free of charge.)
In her lecture, “The Lowdown on Detox: the Good, the Bad, & the Ugly of Detox Diets and Cleanses,” Lagano will discuss the popular detoxification diets that millions of Americans have tried — for good or ill. She’ll clear up the popular misconceptions that many people have about detox diets.

Lagano will precede her talk by giving audience members a short questionnaire to determine their “toxic load” level. She’ll then demonstrate recipes that enhance detoxification and discuss foods and supplements that support it. She’ll also explain why she practices functional medicine, which entails getting to the route of a patient’s problem and treating the underlying causes of his or her dietary problems, rather than simply the symptoms of the problems. Her brand of nutrition counseling, she says, represents a marked departure from conventional dietetics and healthcare. By investigating the antecedents and triggers of a disease or dietary problem, she treats the whole person, not simply a set of symptoms.
“Most people have known someone who is on a detox diet,” says Lagano, whose office is Hoboken. “People who eat only fruit or follow the Master Cleanse or drink green juices all day. Yet these diets make many people ill and, even worse, send some to the hospital.”

Detoxification is a natural bodily process, says Lagano. Yet the problem is that we live in a world filled with toxins. They are in the air we breathe, the products we use to clean ourselves and our houses and, perhaps most perniciously, in the foods we eat.

“We need to start thinking about how to properly facilitate the active process of detoxification,” says Lagano. “Popular culture would have us believe that detox is a noun. It’s not: It’s a verb.”

Lagano has written for periodicals such as Cooking Light, Environmental Nutrition, and The American Nurse and has been quoted in The New York Times, Child, Glamour, and Food Arts. She is a former New Jersey Dietetic Association media rep and food spokesperson and has appeared on CNN, the Food Network and Fox.

She has a Bachelor’s of Science in Dietetics from SUNY Oneonta and a Master’s of Science in Nutrition Education from Teachers College, Columbia University, where she is a doctoral candidate in Health Education. She is both a Registered Dietitian and Certified Nutritionist/Dietitian (New York State). She has immersed herself in the world of food, nutrition, and healing for over 30 years.

Hudson Theater Ensemble Presents “The Great Gatsby” April 5th – April 14th at Hudson School Performance Space

Filed under: Hoboken,Theater — Tags: , , , , — TheBoken @ 11:35 AM

Here is the latest theatrical offering from the well reviewed Hudson Theater Ensemble…..

 Hudson Theater Ensemble The Great Gatsby April 2013

   “The Great Gatsby” -   It is 1922 when gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession!

The Hudson Theatre Ensemble of Hoboken, NJ is proud to present the New Jersey premiere of award-winning playwright Simon Levy’s stage adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s masterpiece The Great Gatsby, Authorized and Granted Exclusive Rights by The Fitzgerald Estate.  Set on Long Island in 1922 at a time when gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession, there is no question that Levy’s remarkable stage adaptation of the Great American Novel has all the elements of Great Theater.   Levy’s adaptation has provoked historic excitement and is nothing less than magnificent in its powerful realization of the acclaimed novel’s Roaring Twenties, Jazz Age world of Prohibition, wealth, privilege, social worlds colliding, and the irreconcilable contradictions within the American Dream and ultimately about the ideal quest itself.

This production of The Great Gatsby is absolutely worth seeing even for those not familiar with the novel.   Though the book most definitely deserves reading, think of this play and our New Jersey premiere as joyfully demonstrating the strengths that the stage brings to storytelling, even and especially to a masterwork like Fitzgerald’s novel.   The Great Gatsby is not easily forgotten.
