Gut Healing Foods with Christina Tidwell of "Live Well with Christina"

We usually only think about the health of our gut or digestive system when we have food poisoning or acute symptoms. The health of our gut, however, is directly linked to our overall health and wellbeing in a powerful way. As the father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, famously said, “All disease begins in the gut.”

Research over the past two decades has linked gut health to allergies, low energy, autoimmune conditions, skin issues, mental health and weight gain to name a few. One of the most powerful ways we can care for our gut, and in turn our health, is through nourishing foods!

Learn about gut healing foods with holistic health coach Christina Tidwell of “Live Well with Christina” (@livewell_christina) .

Spend the morning at the shop with;

  • Q&A sessions

  • Cooking demos of fermented and cultured foods

  • Enjoy a health supportive snack bar of plant lattes, nut cheeses, roasted   seasonal root vegetables and antioxidant rich chocolate truffles.

This event is suitable for dairy-free, gluten-free and plant-based diets.
