WEDNESDAYS April 10, 17 & 24 ~ 12 – 1pm ~ REGISTER HERE ~
1. CHECK THE EFFECTS OF STRESS ON YOUR BODY. Our digestive system is the portal through which we see our mind and emotions exert their effect on our physical being. By addressing imbalance at the level of the digestive system, we can prevent imbalance in deeper tissue systems.
2. IMPROVE YOUR IMMUNITY. Our digestive health has a direct link to our immunity, and greater digestive health directly translates to less colds, and even improved autoimmune conditions.
3. GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR (ORGANIC) FOOD. How efficiently we absorb the vitamins & minerals from the foods we eat is dependent on the health of our digestive system. We can be eating really “healthy” food and not be harvesting all the nutrients for use because of poorly functioning digestion.
4. KNOW WHAT TO EAT, WHEN. Once we can learn to ’speak the language’ of our digestive system we can understand what it’s telling us and make the adjustments that help us avoid an imbalance. This means we can make better choices about what our bodies should be taking in on any given day.
5. GET RELIEF. Many of us suffer from chronic digestive patterns that we compensate for with different supplements or diet restrictions.When we know how to support our digestion, we improve our experience of food and eating.
6. ALLEVIATE FOOD INTOLERANCES & SENSITIVITIES. Many common food issues, such as gluten intolerance and lactose intolerance can be greatly improved and alleviated with ayurvedic approaches.
7. HAVE FUN. There are always a good amount of giggles when we talk about poop
