Join Dr Ryan Lewis, ND and other members of the community for an interactive and informative evening about the four main properties of the herbicide glyphosate and how it might be the single most important thing to eliminate from your plate in order to truly give yourself a fighting chance at achieving better and long-lasting health.

Glyphosate – What is it and Why is it Bad For You?

Glypho what? You, like many others, have probably never heard of glyphosate before – despite it being very prominent in conventional agricultural practices, the foods we consume, and even some school yards and playgrounds. But what exactly is the big fuss about glyphosate and what do you need to know about it to better protect your health and that of your family?

Dr. Ryan Lewis, ND is a Primary Care Naturopathic Doctor with a passion for helping people strive for optimal health and wellness. In his practice, he strives to deliver excellence in care to all of his patients and it is his belief that having a more vibrant health does not have to feel like an elusive goal. Dr. Lewis’ primary goal is to not only address the root cause of a patient’s health concerns, but also to educate his patients to ensure they understand it as well. He wants to empower you, as the patient, with the knowledge, skills and tools you need to become equal partners and active participants in your healthcare. Armed with the knowledge of what is causing your symptoms, you will be guided on how to implement the necessary changes needed to regain and sustain optimal health.
