You kept asking for it and now we are doing it. I am thrilled to announce that my Food as Medicine Australian tour is coming to Bathurst on Saturday 6 July.
This FULL DAY event for $150pp consists of a morning Food as Medicine talk and an afternoon Healthy Homes/Healthy Swaps/ Essential Oils talk with a free organic wholefoods lunch provided in between.
Spending the past 2 weeks with my mama who is quickly slipping away with dementia and witnessing the devastating effect that this has had on not only her life but the lives of those around her, has made me more determined than ever in my mission to empower people with the education, tools and resources they need to reclaim their health and to live less toxic, more nourishing lives before it is too little too late. By turning ignorance into education, we can raise conscious awareness about the effect of what we put in and on our body.
From what we eat and drink, the personal care products we put on our skin, the household cleaning products we unwittingly inhale, how we move, sleep, breathe, and play, how much time we spend in nature, whether we have a strong reason for living, our inner dialogue and our ability to manage our stress… all these pillars or lifestyle choices profoundly influence our health, and switch our genes on and off for better or for worse. Modern science tells us that chronic illness is not, as we previously thought, primarily driven by our hard coded genes but by the expression of our genes which in turn is driven by OUR lifestyle choices. This is a message of hope as we are in the driver’s seat! But as a society and individually we need to urgently shift gears and change lanes in order to change the trajectory of our health and arrest the epidemic of chronic illness and degenerative disease.
In our lap lies an awesome and empowering responsibility as we control to a very large degree these lifestyle choices! Join me in stepping up to that responsibility for the sake of our health, our children’s health and the planet’s health. This is why I do the work that I do and why I shout this message from the rooftops of houses across Australia in my Australian Food as Medicine tour.
It’s a simple message but there’s much work to be done.
Last year I started my Australian tour with pre-eminent holistic dietician, gut health expert and GAPS practitioner Marieke Rodenstein to spread this important message to make a greater impact on people’s lives. We have had SOLD OUT events and brilliant responses from Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, and South East Queensland to date. I’m delighted that we can now also spread this message in country NSW.
Here is more information on the talks to be provided:
In this comprehensive 1/2 day presentation, I dive deep into the Fundamentals of Robust Nutrition and provide you with a comprehensive How To manual that sets you up for life. While health is mulifactoral and influenced by a number of different pillars or foundations of health, nourishing your body with the very nutrient-rich whole unprocessed foods that we as a species are biologically designed to eat is, I believe, the fastest and easiest way of reclaiming and maintaining spectacular health with the most profound impact. I spend time explaining the most nutrient dense foods on the planet and how to incorporate them into your diet, the 3 main buckets of dietary toxins and I bust mainstream myths that have led to an epidemic of chronic illness and degenerative disease. What you will hear and receive is exactly the same information that I provide in my one on one health coaching sessions but at a fraction of the price in these group Food as Medicine talks.
Marieke Rodenstein will hone in on the fundamentals of robust gut health. Our collective forte is to combine the wisdom of ancestral diets with the latest developments in nutritional medicine and robust science, to provide you with all the tools and resources you need on how to nourish your body and optimise your health.
Health issues, pharmaceutical band-aids, and confusion and stress over what, when and how to eat might be considered “normal” in today’s society, but this is not a natural state of being and you don’t have to settle to live that way.
By the end of our presentation, our mission is to make you feel empowered that you have all the information, tools and resources you need to reclaim and maintain your and your family’s health and wellbeing so that you can be the best possible version of yourself and live the full and vibrant life that you so truly deserve.
2. HEALTHY HOMES / HEALTHY SWAPS / ESSENTIAL OILS: 2pm- 5:30pm Saturday 6th July Perthville, Bathurst
While the focus of the Food as Medicine talk is helping you to recognise and eliminate DIETARY toxins (and nourishing our bodies with the nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory whole unprocessed foods), the focus of my HEALTHY HOMES talk is to help you become aware of and eliminate ENVIRONMENTAL toxins lurking in conventional personal care products, household cleaning products, make up and perfumes (and to healthy swap to all-natural, yet super-powerful, cost-effective versions). For what we put on our skin and breathe into our lungs is just as, if not more, important than the food we eat as our skin and lungs have no digestive filters!
This gathering is free to all Food As Medicine attendees as my mission is to help you kick toxins in ALL areas of your life! So if you are booked into the Food As Medicine talk you will receive automatic entry to the Healthy Homes talk as we want you to make a whole day transforming your health in ALL areas of your life.
I can’t wait to see you in Bathurst in July for this full day event. This will be our last time to tour in this region. Please forward this email to your friends and family. These could be the talks that could change the course of their life!
Together let’s spread this powerful message that food can be the most powerful medicine, our genes are not our destiny and that our health and our planet’s health lies in our hands.
After Bathurst, we are headed to Melbourne (July), Tasmania (Aug), ACT (Sept), Bunbury (Oct), Perth (Oct), and finishing the tour in Sydney in November. Places are booking fast to all these cities so please secure your tickets quickly to avoid disappointment.
