On average, every adult has from 4-6 pounds of bacteria living in their gut. To be clear, this is a good thing and not a reason to start using sanitizer on every surface! It is a balance between the good and the bad. The good bacteria living in your gut (called your “microbiome”) have developed intricate interconnections with your intestinal and immune systems; they help calibrate your immune system so it is working in tip top shape, able to recognize what is 'you' and what is 'other'. Your microbiome plays a big part in regulating overall body inflammation, starting in the gut and radiating outwards to all of your organs and body systems. Those little bugs? Well they are also key players in supporting overall immune health. It is imperative we give our immune systems a little support by looking after our Good Gut Guardians, our microbiome.
Join me, Luka Symons, local C.H.N. Holistic Nutritionist to garner tips and tricks in order to best support our gut health and in turn, give our immune system the love it needs to get you through the day. Whether it be support through digestive complaints, help come hayfever season, appeasing the skin eruptions that come up for you, or getting a handle on a new major diagnosis, this workshop is for anyone who is interested in keeping their immune system in tip top shape. Our immune system plays such important roles in keeping us alive and well, it is incumbent upon us to give it some love back so that it can do the work it wants to do.
I will be demonstrating how to make a fermented beverage from beets called Beet Kvass so that you can make your own at home.
