Clear Skin from Within

Speaker: Vivien Allred

Manchester, Thu. 29th August. 6.30pm-8.30pm.

Skin problems such as premature ageing, acne, eczema, sensitivity and rashes are often the result of multiple imbalances occurring within the body. Skin problems are not skin problems, but whole-body problems. To clear skin, a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist will first address the underlying body systems that drive skin health with foods and lifestyle changes.

During this talk you will learn:

  • The core requirements of healthy skin
  • How skin problems begin and how to resolve problems before they spiral
  • The nutrients and foods that are needed for skin health
  • The body systems that drive skin health
  • Top tips for clear skin

About the Speaker

Vivien Allred (Dip CNM) studied to become a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist with CNM after struggling with many hormonal and digestive issues during early adulthood. She now works primarily with women with issues such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), menstrual issues, hair loss, acne, IBS and weight gain.

Ferment your Way to Vibrant Health

Speaker: Sandor Ellix Katz

London, Mon. 16th September. 7pm-9pm.

Sandor Katz is the original fermentation revivalist, author and speaker on all things ferments with over 20 years of knowledge and experimentation under his belt. In his words:

“My interest in fermentation grew out of my overlapping interests in cooking, nutrition and gardening. It started with sauerkraut. I found an old crock buried in our barn, harvested cabbage from our garden, chopped it up, salted it, and waited. That first kraut tasted so alive and powerfully nutritious, I have made sauerkraut ever since, earning the nickname Sandorkraut, even as my repertoire has expanded. I have explored and experimented widely in the realm of fermentation, and my mission is to encourage home fermentation experimentalists and propel more live-culture foods out into our culture.”

During this event Sandor will be sharing his considerable experience on the healing qualities and nutritional importance of live-culture ferments and how they can help to improve digestion and general health.

You will put in practise what you have learnt thanks to a live demonstration that will show you how simple it is to ferment at home.

At this event, you will learn:

  • How to transition from a heavily meat-based diet to a plant-based one.
  • The nutrition and training principles needed to improve health, body composition and performance.
  • The effect our protein obsession is having on the environment.
