Mood Disorders (January 21 and 28)
Many people experience unpleasant chronic mood patterns like depression, anxiety, and seasonal affective disorder (as known as the winter blues). In this workshop we will discuss what affects our moods from genetics to lifestyle and how you can support yourself to feel better in a meaningful way. January 21 and 28; 1 to 2:30 pm; $40.
Autoimmune Diseases (March 24 and 31)
There are many different naturopathic approaches to autoimmune disease that can be effective, including diet, food-sensitivity testing and supplements. All of them involve putting the patient in charge of his or her own healthcare. The best modality of care for autoimmune patients is a cooperative approach between MDs and NDs to determine the root cause of the disease and then treat the resulting effects. March 24 and 31; 1 to 2:30 pm; $40.
Gut Health, Part 1 (September 22 and 29)
The incredible complexity of the gut and its importance to our overall health is a topic of increasing research in the medical community. Numerous studies in the past two decades have demonstrated links between gut health and the immune system, mood, mental health, autoimmune diseases, endocrine disorders, skin conditions, and cancer. September 22 and 29; 1 to 2:30 pm; $40.
Gut Health, Part 2 (October 20 and 27)
We will continue learning about how pathogenic microbes take hold of our GI tract and overall health. We will discuss how to determine and address the root cause of gut issues rather than focusing on symptom management. October 20 and 27; 1 to 2:30 pm; $40.
