Healing Your Gut – Cooking Class with Carole Murko

Description

18th century French philosopher, Anthelme Brillat-Savarin once said, “Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.”

Our gut rules our health. Our ancestors knew this. But industrialized food, antibiotic-pumped cows, pigs and chickens, and genetically modified wheat, corn, soy and more have wreaked havoc on our health. Our food is laden with salt, sugar and fat. Without knowing it, we have all been poisoned. Most autoimmune diseases, cancer, diabetes and heart disease can be traced to our gut health.

Carole Murko of Heirloom Meals has been cooking gluten-free for over 10 years for her husband who has celiac disease. She, herself was just diagnosed with a rare autoimmune eye disease (posterior uveitis) which is linked to leaky gut, is on a mission to heal herself through her diet and has become a de facto expert on anti-inflammatory foods and diets.

Carole has teamed up with Dr. Sarah Williams to offer this class on healing the gut. Carole will demonstrate how to cook up a delicious lunch that contains important nutrients that heal the gut and reduces inflammation.

Dr. Sarah Williams will share the science behind why these foods heal and provide a tutorial on the ingredients.

In her practice, Dr. Sarah Williams offers personalized healthcare. Her comprehensive approach brings together the practices of nutritional, functional, genomic, homeopathic, and lifestyle medicine.

She works to integrate recent advances in genomics and laboratory diagnosis to improve the health of her patients. Her most recent post graduate studies have been in the field of nutrigenomics, pharmacogenics, and Whole Genome Sequencing.

  • Class is limited to 24 participants.

  • Recipes will be available so that you can go home and recreate these healthy dishes for friends and family.
