Delve deeper into the practical applications of correct diet and lifestyle with this informative and interactive workshop.

What you will gain from the workshop:

  • Information and practical tips for recognising and managing gut issues: A healthy gut is the cornerstone to good health and wellbeing, yet research shows that many children with developmental disorders affecting the brain have altered gut microflora (or ‘friendly’ bacteria)
  • An overview of the top gut healing diets: You may have heard of GFCF, low oxalate, low salicylate and other specialized diets. The rationale behind these diets will be explained and you will be shown what a nourishing diet looks like for the whole family
  • How to manage fussy eaters: Many children can be particular to both the taste and texture of food, so you are not alone. Receive practical tips to help you expand your child’s diet to ensure they are gaining enough of the right nutrients
  • Advice on how to implement healthier lifestyle choices: Reducing exposure to chemicals and toxins, improving sleep hygiene and managing stress
  • Advice on functional testing to determine underlying imbalances

According to recent research, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) reported 12.5 million working days lost due to work-related stress, depression or anxiety. Globally, a 2015 WHO report documented that the total number of people with depression was estimated to exceed 300 million. Nearly that number again suffers from a range of anxiety disorders.

A healthy diet plays a fundamental role in both physiological and psychological well-being and there is a considerable body of evidence demonstrating that nutritional deficiencies can result in mood changes.

Emerging science is also recognising the impact of the microbiome, the vast population (literally trillions!) of microbes that inhabit the gut, not just on our physical health but also our mental health. Some scientist even believe that we could be on the cusp of a revolution that uses microbes to improve mental health.

Join us for this informative evening talk with Abir Hamza-Goodacre, Registered Nutritional Therapist, to gain information on:

  • The nutritional science underlying the impact of nutrient status on cognitive and mood disorders
  • The link between the gut and mental health
  • Nutritional interventions to support healthy brain functioning
