Though many holistic nutritional practitioners have long emphasized the importance a healthy gut, modern nutritional science is only now beginning to discover the complexity and importance of the role of the digestive microbiome in everything from our immune system to overall well being. Holistic Culinary Nutritionist Keisha Luke has studied a broad range of holistic health practices, and combined with her own experience of profound personal healing, has developed a passion for helping people improve their well being through optimizing their gut health.
In this fun, virtual hands-on workshop…
…Keisha will be sharing the remarkable story of how she overcame her own health issues and obstacles through improved whole food nutrition. There will be discussion of the nature of the digestive process, factors in digestive health and how to maintain a healthy gut ecosystem.
Other topics covered include:
Whole food nutrition, foods that harm vs. foods that heal, an understanding of fibre, fats, probiotics, greens, and their role in the body, exploring the relationship between our minds and our digestive system (aka that “gut feeling”), and ways to collaborate with holistic health practitioners to help accelerate and elevate your health.
These approaches can be especially beneficial for those struggling with symptoms like: gas, bloating, inflammation, constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, indigestion, or conditions such as: irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), crohn’s, colitis, diabetes and more.
Participants will learn recipes and get to make and sample different kind of gut-friendly foods such as Keisha’s famous sweet potato, carrot & ginger soup, Vegan Caesar salad (May add: chicken or fish), as well as, easy & delicious gluten-free and vegan apple banana muffins right from your own homes.
