You can meet us on You Tube "live", if you like; or you can listen to a two part radio interview with Gloria about Health & Nutrition: Part 1, Part 2.
Meanwhile, here's a summary of who we are.

Jerre became a regular attendee at Gloria’s nutrition seminars, avidly making notes and trying to assimilate the wealth of information she provided at every event. Eventually, he told her she had to put it into a book so that her information could be made available to people everywhere. Realizing that her busy schedule might preclude her from penning a book, he offered to help her write it, and to his surprise and delight she agreed immediately. Secrets of Supplements: The Good, The Bad, The Totally Terrific (our first title) was conceived.

Jerre is an award-winning university instructor whose 46 year teaching and research career spans elementary through university. As far back as 1967, he noticed the link between nutrition and learning. Those students who ate a nutritious breakfast and avoided junk snacks had more energy, behaved better, and even got higher grades. He actively teaches his students about the importance of nutrition to their academic performance, insisting that they have a healthy breakfast before entering his classroom, and banning junk food of any kind. He has helped many students discover how good nutrition can affect their studies and every aspect of their lives. Throughout his career, Jerre has pleaded with school systems to feature nutrition education across all the school years for students and their parents. He remains perplexed why such a need is slow to gain favor. His own independent research into nutrition led Jerre to one of Gloria’s seminars, where he discovered the down-to-earth, usable information he had been seeking.

Gloria is in worldwide demand as a lecturer and authority on nutrition and supplements. During her nursing career, Gloria spent many years as Director of a busy emergency department. She loved this fast-paced and exciting environment, but eventually became frustrated as she realized that medical treatment tends to focus on dealing with symptoms, while not always addressing the root causes of illness. So, Gloria started to explore the correlation between the foods we eat or don’t eat, the nutrients we assimilate or fail to assimilate, and the diseases our bodies manifest. As she studied nutrition and the food - health connection, she came to believe that the medical profession was not embracing the proactive possibilities of nutritional education. Gloria’s journey of exploration led her to the supplements industry, and she contacted over 200 companies with a series of in-depth queries. She learned what the lack of regulation means to people who are trying to buy good nutrition—and she found the most effective ways of evaluating supplement providers. Gloria is an advocate and teacher for people all over the world, and now her knowledge and research is available to all in EAT TO SAVE YOUR LIFE.
