Class Details

Part 1 - Probiotics: Grow a Healthy Gut Microbiome (Wednesday, December 12th at 5PM-6:30PM)

The bacteria in your gut outnumber your body's cells 10 to one. They are guardians of health, and this little internal zoo packs quite the punch. Having the right gut bacteria and yeasts is linked to numerous health benefits, including weight loss, improved digestion, enhanced immune function, healthier skin and a reduced risk of many diseases.

Surprisingly, the metabolic activities of your gut flora resemble those of an organ, so some scientists refer to the gut flora as the "forgotten organ." Most of us have taken antibiotics or eaten a funky diet, both of which wipe out these healthy intestinal inhabitants.

These good bugs do occur in some foods, like yogurt. Often, to create the healthy microbiome we need, we have to use a supplement. Some are good, and some are not so good, so let's dig into that world.

This practical webinar will explore the world of healthy gut bugs. We will learn what they do, which ones to take, proper doses, and effective brands.

Part 2 - SIBO (Small intestine bowel overgrowth) Wednesday, December 19th 5PM-6:30PM

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is a serious condition affecting the small intestine. It occurs when bacteria that normally grow in other parts of the gut start growing in the small intestine, causing pain and diarrhea. It can also lead to malnutrition as the bacteria start to use up the body's nutrients.

SIBO symptoms, mainly in the gut, include:

  • Pain in the stomach, especially after eating
  • Bloating
  • Cramps
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Indigestion
  • Regular feeling of fullness
  • Gas

SIBO is a modern epidemic, caused by antacid drugs, antibiotics and unhealthy diet. Natural healing offers a toolbox of effective remedies to get rid of these offenders and restore a healthy digestive tract. Let's oust the pests find a way through this modern-day misery.
