Your gut health is probably far more important that you ever realised.
Did you know that 90% of the genetic material in your body is not yours? Your micro flora is made up of bacteria, fungi, viruses and other micro-organisms and we now know that your micro flora influences your genetic expression. 80% of your immune system is based in the gut and even your weight is influenced by the state of health of your digestive tract. Your risk of numerous chronic and acute diseases and even your mental health can be related.
Does your gut hold the key to better brain health? You may not be aware that you actually have two nervous systems. Your central nervous system, the one that everyone knows about, which comprises of your brain and spinal cord and the enteric nervous system, which is the intrinsic nervous system of your gastrointestinal tract. Both are actually created out of the same type of tissue and the two systems are connected via the vagus nerve. Your gut actually sends far more information to your brain than your brain sends to your gut. Wow.
Do you want to find out more and how to make simple, cheap changes that could influence all of the above?
I have just created a wonderful Gut Health Workshop, which will give you the “know how” and incentive to get making your own fermented foods and drinks. It is 2 hours long and costs just £50 for one person, or if you bring a friend £70 for the two of you. All of my Workshops run from my home and are never for more than 3 people. You will learn through hands on instruction how to make your own delicious, health enhancing fermented vegetables and drinks, samples to take home and a little kit to get you started. Please PM to book your place, or visit my website www.yestochange.co.uk. Dates and times to suit you.
Feedback so far has been 10/10 and the clients that have attended have already made their own Kombusha and fermented foods at home as well as other simple changes to make vast improvements to their gut health. Why wait?
