Keeping Your Gut Healthy For Overall Well Being

Keeping Your Gut Healthy For Overall Well Being
Capabu Health Food Shop, Millstreet, Co. Cork

Did you ever notice that when your gut is healthy, your overall health and vitality improves? And when you eat the wrong food you feel awful? We have too much choice these days and we can lose track of ourselves with processed foods that destroy our gut health. The good news is that you are in charge of what you eat and your food choices are in your own hands. And in Ireland, we have wonderful food choices that are really healthy and increase our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. As the wise person said “Food is Medicine” – or not!

In this one hour talk you will learn:

• Which foods cause inflammation and illness in the body and which foods help it.
• How when we absorb our food fully, it dictates how well we are nourished.
• How taking a break from food can have a great healing effect.
• The new science of food and gut health.

Please join us at Capabu Health Food Shop in Millstreet
Date: Thursday, February 27, 2020, 6-7 pm
Speaker: Aidan O Sullivan.
