HOW TO NATURALLY BOOST YOUR CHILD’S IMMUNE SYSTEM
I refuse to accept as normal the fact that most children are taking medication with snuffly noses all winter. Little ones shouldn’t be chronically ill and you have no need to memorise the car journey to the ER room. There are many ways to help the immune system work better and often, due to ignorance, I observe habits that hinder it. If we break these habits, we can shift away from the vicious cycle of constant childhood sickness. Due to popular petition I have designed this workshop to inspire parents to take control of the family health in an easy and intuitive manner. You will get a deep understanding on how the immune system works and will learn how to interpret signs like mucus, fever and diarrhoea. I will share natural remedies that boost the body’s innate defence system and you can take them home in a easy to interpret handout. Never another flu!
WHY CAN’T I LOSE WEIGHT?
This workshop is designed to detect YOUR reason for those extra kilos and to find your solution. Losing weight goes beyond just eating less and moving more. It is not all about being hungry.

I will be talking about reaching your healthy goal healing the reason that moved you away from there in the first place. We will go over basic concepts on metabolism so that you can understand your body better. Then we will list 15 reasons that distanced you from your ideal weight so that you can start taking steps in the right direction. Understanding yourself is the best motivation to make changes!
