Tuesday October 22, 5:30-6pm

$25 per member
$32 per non-member

This is a 30-minute Lecture, with an optional functional blood chemistry testing to follow. Dr. Vreeland will be presenting a short lecture discussing the most common symptoms his patients ask about. Brain fog, muscle and joint pain, weight gain, mood change, insomnia, fatigue, and gastrointestinal complaints are all frequent offenders. These complaints, while common, are often poorly addressed with people being told they are “fine” despite feeling anything but. Dr. Vreeland will walk you through his thought process and discuss the value of functional blood chemistry analysis. Finally, the Vreeland Clinic will be offering attendees limited time promotional pricing on these laboratory tests to be drawn at the RVC immediately following the lecture. Sign up at the Front Desk.
