GUT HEALTH

What every person needs to know about food

This workshop was put together so that you can gain a deeper understanding of all things related to your gut (or gastrointestinal/digestive tract). The reason that the gut gets its very own workshop is because it really is the foundation of our fabulous or not so fabulous health. As naturopaths, we have known for a long time that gut health is fundamental to overall good health, and now the science in this area is exploding and shows that what we have been talking about for years really is the truth. Obvious conditions such as indigestion and bloating as well as the not so obvious ones like osteoporosis, can be linked back to gastrointestinal function. Gemma will take you through the basic anatomy and physiology of your digestive organs, what it feels like to have a healthy gut, some indicators that your gut might need not be so healthy or could need some work and give you some great ideas about how to start the healing process from your home.

UNDERSTANDING THYROID HEALTH

It is estimated that one in four people in Australia have a thyroid disorder with women being ten times more likely to have an underactive thyroid compared to men.

The thyroid is a delicate and sensitive gland that helps to control our metabolism, body temperature, brain function, energy levels and regulates the activity of every cell in your body. If your thyroid is not working optimally it can affect your weight, reduce fertility, increase your risk of heart attack and mess with your sense of wellbeing.

Knowing your thyroid and how it works can get a bit overwhelming. The thyroid gland can become underactive or overactive. At times the immune system can also  become imbalanced, producing antibodies that can attack and damage the thyroid gland. There is more you can do to help your thyroid than simply adding more and more thyroid hormone.

In this workshop you will get a whole body insight into how you can look after your thyroid, how to recognise when your thyroid needs more help, what the blood tests can tell you about how your thyroid is working and which foods and lifestyle habits you can change for a healthier thyroid and a healthier, happier you!
