Love Your Gut 

Presented by Live Well with Lisa

Did you know that the word inflammation has its roots in the Latin word inflammare, meaning “to set on fire”?  Inflammation is a reaction designed to protect us after an injury or an infection and is a completely normal process. The injured area becomes red, swollen, hot, and painful.

But there is another type of inflammation that isn’t as obvious and is much more insidious. It’s called chronic or silent inflammation. Chronic inflammation breaks down our bodies and makes us more susceptible to disease. Inflammation forces us to alter our daily lives. Unfortunately, the Standard American Diet is abundant in foods that cause chronic inflammation and compromise the immune system.


Having a healthy gut is the path to optimal wellness.


Come join us for a fun and informative 2 Hour Workshop where we talk about all things gut related. We will be serving delicious gut healthy foods! We will be focusing on diet and lifestyle factors that lead to health problems, ways to reduce inflammation, & how to strengthen your immune system.
