It's all about YOUR Kulture: Understanding your unique gut microbiome

Fermented and cultured foods have made a huge comeback and for good reason - they can be life-changing. But not all fermented foods are created equal and understanding how to tailor the fermented foods you make to your unique gut microbiome is where the true thriving health comes from. So throw away the fear of ferments and come along to this informative workshop where Kirsty Wirth will blend the perfect mix of a science based approach to health and using food and fermented foods as medicine.

The workshop will cover:

What the gut microbiome is and how do you test your unique culture.

Why you may STILL suffer from gut issues even though you have gone paleo, your eating all the fermented foods and bone broths and meditating!

How can candida and a poor diet change your unique gut microbiome and cause havoc to our health?

Parasites - what are they and how they can cause anxiety and mental health disorders overnight!

Top tips on lifestyle, diet and environment changes you must make that will help you build a healthy gut!

Kirsty Wirth is the founder of Kultured Wellness, a company whose mission is to inspire and educate people to take control of their health by eating real and fermented foods that nourishe the brain and the gut. She is the brainchild behind Kultured Wellness Culture Starters and functional supplements.

Event Title: Essential Oils for ADHD, Anxiety & Sleep Term 4
Organisation: Northern Beaches ADHD Support Group
Posted On: 10/11/2017

Essential Oils for ADHD, Anxiety & Sleep

Join me and a small group of ADHD mums/dads for a relaxing, social evening learning which essential oils may help your child's ADHD, anxiety & sleep & how you can also use them to live a more low-tox lifestyle, whilst enjoying healthy snacks & drinks. During the evening, you'll have the opportunity to experience the oils, a beautiful hand massage and everyone will leave with a gift to take home!

I've been an ADHD mum for 20 years but I've also had to help my daughter deal with chronic anxiety as well as sleep difficulties, digestive issues and chronic fatigue syndrome. We've found that getting to the root cause of problems and treating them naturally has proved most effective and this has led us to leading a more clean eating, low-tox lifestsyle. Adding therapeutic grade essential oils to our daily routines has enabled us to make this shift so easily. I've loved using essential oils for years and they are my go to remedy for anything from a headache to sunburn and everything in between - skincare, haircare, cooking, cleaning, first aid, emotional support and the list goes on.

Essential oils are an affordable, easy to use and extremely effective way to assist many health and behavioural issues.

Come join me as I take you on an essential oils journey to empower yourself with natural solutions to enhance your family's wellbeing.

You will learn:

* What essential oils are & how to use them safely
* The potent affect essential oils have on the brain
* How to effectively use essential oils to detox your daily life
* Which oils will assist your ADHD child and your family to:

Enhance focus & staying on task
Relieve anxiety & calm emotions
Allow deeper, higher quality sleep
Support the nervous system
Support the immune system
Improve digestive health
