Gut Health and Wellness Workshop

With recent research showing that good gut health is linked to a healthy body and mind, Slow Food Saddleback has arranged a workshop to explore this interesting and relevant topic.

Two local proponents of gut health,  Natural Medicine Practitioner Fiona Hopkin and Wholefoods Cook-Caterer Karina Shepherd are our workshop presenters.

The workshop will cover the digestive system, the human microbiome and what a ‘leaky gut’ is. Our experts will discuss the symptoms of poor gut health, possible causes and how to restore balance. You will gain a good understanding of what gut health means and how it relates to your overall wellness. The link with the brain and immune function will also be explored.

To complete the day we will discuss what foods are best for gut health and how to safely prepare them. Then we will get into the kitchen to prepare some gut healing and gut healthy recipes before sitting down to connect and eat as a group.

When:           Sunday 27 June from 10.30 am to 3pm.
Cost:              $68 for Slow Food Members, $78 for non members.
