NHSA Webinar Series 7. Vitality and Health: The Natural Health Perspective

October 7, 2022 @ 19:30 - November 2, 2022 @ 19:00

$39 – $49

For our 7th webinar series, we have collected a range of experts to explore the idea of vitality in health. Those of us in the natural health space know that health is more than simply the absence of disease, it is a spring in our step, a sense of physical and mental strength, the ability to find ways to cope with what life brings us, it is ‘vitality’.

But how do you create and maintain something as seemingly intangible as vitality in your life? By taking a holistic approach to your health of course! We know this is easier said than done, so in this series we will be providing you with practical information and plenty of inspiration to achieve a healthier life.

Presentation: What Role Does Our Gut Microbiome Play In Our Vitality and How To Cultivate a Healthy Gut

Presenter:  Robyn Chuter (Naturopath, EFT Practitioner and Counsellor)

Robyn has been practising Naturopathy since 1995. Natural Health Society members will recognise Robyn as the brains and passion behind some of our favourite True Natural Health magazine articles.  Robyn has helped countless people return to health, often assisting people to restore their health and vitality despite being previously told that their chronic health conditions (chronic fatigue, migraines, blood sugar dysregulation, immune issues…) could not be resolved.  Robyn is a truly holistic practitioner who works with clients’ physical and mental health, incorporating counselling to guide people’s recovery.

Presentation summary:

You’ve often heard it said that we are what we eat. But it’s at least as true to say that we are what our gut bugs eat! Our microbiome plays a vital role in digestion, detoxification and metabolism. There is virtually no function of our bodies and minds that isn’t affected by our gut microbiota. In many ways, our vitality is predicated on the vitality of our gut microbiome. Join us as Robyn teaches us how to cultivate a healthy gut, and why it is such a vital health pursuit.
