We are pleased to announce our next workshop, “Digestive Health”, on Wednesday, March 2, 2011, with Frances Farmer.

Contrary to conventional wisdom which encourages a high-fiber, low-fat diet, Frances will counter with the facts supporting the importance of a low-fiber, low-starch diet and the need for a higher percentage of saturated fat. Constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis, and Crones disease are examples of digestive issues related to diet. To understand what happens in digestion it is important to understand healthy intestinal flora. Frances will explain both the small and large intestine and how the manifestation of our health is evident in the state of our stools. With sensitivity and clarity Frances will present information which will empower each of us to diagnose our own stools and understand what is happening in our own bodies. Suggestions for increasing healthy robust gut flora will be included. A helpful class for those who are choosing to do the GAPS diet.

A record number of you enjoyed Frances’ talk on this subject last spring at one of our chapter meetings, affectionately known as the “poop talk” – this workshop delves deeper into the issue of digestion and gut health.
