Our first workshop will focus on Sugar Imbalances.Numerous studies associate increased sugar intake with many health problems, such as addiction, obesity, diabetes, stress, heart disease and more. It is important to understand how strongly blood glucose levels affectbody’s adrenal and metabolic functions. You will be able to expand your knowledge on the main macronutrients and how they individually influence the blood glucose balance. We will discuss  what the sugar actually is, how the refined sugar differs from natural sweeteners such as honey,and you will learn how to control an intake of any sugars and why it is important.

Sugar workshop will ease you into the next workshopcovering Stress & Sleeplessness which are both strongly connected to a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Research shows that the right nutrition and physical activity can reduce the production of stress hormones, increase the production of stress relive substances in the body, and  improve the sleep.  You will learn what and when to eat to stay more calm and relaxed, and to increase your chances of getting a better quality of sleep.

Our last workshop is directed to all women suffering from hormonal imbalances and menopause. Physical and emotional symptoms caused by the hormonal changes can be really unpleasant and hard to cope with. There is a lot of evidence showing that maintaining a healthy weight and staying fit can improve some menopausal symptoms and release the tension associated with it. Moreover, by eating specific foods containing plant-derived oestrogens, called phytoestrogens,  you can significantly improve the symptoms such as hot flashes,depression, irritability & low energy levels. You will learn how to find the best food sources of phytoestrogens and how to incorporate them in your diet.
