Recap of My Two Talks in Herkimer, NY: Beating Depression Naturally and Organic Food

Written by Max Goldberg on April 9, 2012. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

Last week, I was in upstate New York where I gave two presentations at Herkimer County Community College.

The first talk was on Beating Depression Naturally. Aside from sharing my own personal story of what happened during and after my 11 years of antidepressants, I provided the students eight different ways to fight depression naturally, a few of which were avoiding refined sugar, yoga, meditation, and eating more organic and raw food.

This presentation was covered by the local press, including the Herkimer Telegram and the local NBC affiliate (To watch the video, click on the blue box on the left that says “healthy living”).

The other talk that I gave was Organic Food: What Is It and Why Should We Be Eating It. I covered the basics of what organic food is, what are the different categories of organic, why we should be eating organic food, what are GMOS, and the latest with the California ballot initiative to get GMOs labeled.

It was fantastic being on a college campus and speaking about two subjects that I am incredibly passionate about. My goal is to do a lot more of these.

  2. Hi Stephanie,

    I think it was well-received. The faculty said a good gauge is whether students come up to you afterwards and there were several who did, particularly after the organic food talk.

    Live well,
    Max
