Essentials of Healthy Living
Radio Show

Dana Laake and her special guest, Dr. Scott Minton, Ph.D., will be discussing vegetarian sources of omega-3 and how they compare to fish oil.

Dr. Minton earned both a Masters and Ph.D. in Resource Ecology from the University of Michigan. He was a tenured Associate Professor at Vanguard University in the Biological Sciences. As a nutritional consultant, Dr. Minton practiced evidence-based nutrition, basing his dietary programs on a comprehensive intake process and advanced nutritional laboratory testing. This individual-centered strategy yielded successful experiences for patients with longstanding fatigue, excess weight gain, digestive distress, lowered immune function, hormone imbalances and other inflammatory conditions.
