Saturday, July 15th -- Caring For Your Second Brain: Intro to Gut Health
with Gabrielle Gray
"Gut health" may just seem like an of-the-moment wellness topic or a way to sell kombucha. Actually, our gut is proven through research to have such a large role in our day to day lives that scientists refer to it as our "second brain."
If you have stubborn health issues that are sometimes resistant to Western treatments -- for example: fatigue, some auto-immune disorders, low-grade overall inflammation, or even mood swings -- you might have a gut that's in need of some TLC. The benefits of taking care of the gut include but are not limited to: easier weight loss, clearer skin, more restful sleep, easier elimination and more. If you're dealing with chronic issues, this class can empower you to work with your doctor to find new solutions that take this important part of your being into consideration.
We'll go over the basics of gut health, the vocabulary of what's happening in our bodies, and the classic markers of an out-of-balance gut. You'll learn the difference between a probiotic and a prebiotic, what to eat for optimal gut health, and you'll leave with recipes to start you off!
