I’m very excited to offer a FREE four-week program starting January 14th. As a group, (myself included) we’ll be doing three weeks of the Elimination Diet, plus one week of food re-introduction. What is the Elimination Diet? It’s a very specific food program designed to remove all sources of toxins from the diet, and all potential food allergies. If we were to speak in terms of “Detoxes” or “Cleanses”, the Elimination diet is by-far the most effective, the safest, and the most likely to create sustainable positive change. It is also our gold standard for identifying food sensitivities. However, it can be quite difficult to do – as it does ask you to remove things like sugar, coffee, and alcohol (hence waiting until after the holidays), which is why it is helpful to do it as part of a group. Although it will be a challenge, the results are well worth it.
To support the process, I’ll be offering a talk every Saturday so we can learn what we’re doing, and to answer any questions that come up. I’ll also provide a lengthy list of recipes that are “Elimination Diet Friendly”. Here are the scheduled lectures, all are from 1-2pm at The Herbal Clinic and Dispensary on Roncesvalles Ave:
Saturday, Jan. 12th: Explaining the Elimination Diet – Understanding Digestion, Absorption and Food Sensitivities.
Saturday, Jan. 19th: ”Detoxification” Explained – Making it Part of Your Daily Life.
Saturday, Jan 26th: Stress, Sleep, and Light Activity – Optimizing All Our Body’s Systems
Saturday, Feb 2nd: Food Re-introduction, and Sustainable Healthy Eating.
Space: We’ll be limited to about 15 people, but I won’t turn anyone away! Good Health is for everyone!
