Speaker: Lorna Driver-Davies
Brighton, Tue. 11th June. 6.30pm-8.30pm.
A disruption in the circulation of female hormones can manifest as weight control issues, skin problems, mood changes, increased stress levels, hot flushes and fertility concerns. In order to re-balance hormones, good nutritional habits and a focus on detoxification are key. This is because our liver and other organs, such as our kidneys and gut, act as systems of detoxification. Just like a factory that never closes, these organs are designed to manage the levels of circulating female hormones that enable us to stay balanced.
Once our body has finished using these hormones it’s essential to effectively excrete them. This process isn’t only about the removal of hormones we naturally produce, but also involves reducing the chemical load we acquire from the environment – a load which can have a negative effect on our body if not efficiently disposed of.
In this talk, Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist Lorna Driver-Davies will explain how to re-balance hormones using nutrition and botanicals for long term benefit.

Speaker: Sandor Ellix Katz
London, Mon. 16th September. 7.00pm-9.00pm.
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.
