OPTIMAL GUT HEALTH - GATEWAY TO YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

Insufficient absorption and metabolism are at the root of many digestive ills. You may not notice the compensating your body is forced to do, until more serious issues make you listen. Let’s prevent that, together.

Beyond coping skills, and making do, this class takes a closer look at what stresses most of us out and how it impacts us, what goes on in our environment and the people living in it. Stressful patterns are often based on old learned behavioral protections that come into play when even the slightest reminder triggers them. Rather than shaming ourselves into courage and to overcome old fears, wouldn’t it be great to have more hands on - in the moment power to ease the stress? For all of you who stuff it down or blow it out, and for those who live with others who are stressed - tools for when you don’t have control over your life.
