Probiotics & The Human Microbiome Project | $10
with founder of Vita Biosa*, Niels Wandler
Join us Wednesday July 31st for an informative evening on probiotics with founder and master brewer of Vita Biosa, Niels Wandler. Niels will be discussing the merits of probiotics, the various types that exist, and which ones may be best for you! As most of you know, we at Lotus Herbal Health are not big fans of encapsulated probiotics, but we’re huge advocates for high-quality organic liquid probiotics like Vita Biosa. There’s a LOT of misinformation out there about probiotics, so if you’re as passionate about gut health as we are- this is a talk you won’t want to miss!!
From Vita Biosa: “An ever-growing number of studies conclude ancient knowledge, that changes in the composition of our microbiomes correlates with discomfort and diseases. And then the Human Microbiome Project was launched in 2007 by the States National Institutes of Health, aimed to improve the understanding of the microbial flora involved in human health and disease. Through his work Niels Wandler has witnessed the devasting consequences of man manipulating natures “blueprint.” Living in Hamilton, Niels is involved in making our world the place you deserve, and that work begins with the Microbiome.”
*Vita Biosa is an organic, liquid probiotic that is made in Alberta!

Looking for healthy snack ideas? Needing nutritious fuel for your summer adventures? Not sure what to do with your cupboards full of superfoods?
Then join us May 17th or 18th for an awesome new workshop! Mandy will be teaching (and demonstrating) how to make 2 awesome superfood snacks for summer- gummy bears with grass-fed gelatin and raw energy bites! These are both great foundational skills to have under your belt- once you understand the basics you can re-create these recipes to suit your individual needs.*
When Mandy’s sister saw her making energy bites, she was floored at how easy they are to make. She used to spend hours making granola bars that would crumble in her backpack on the way to school and now she’s sold on this technique! By keeping energy bites raw (as opposed to baked granola), we also keep way more of the nutrients intact.
We at Lotus Herbal take a seasonal approach to eating, so this workshop will focus on cooling herbs and superfoods for the summer season. *Click here to register*
*both recipes can be made sugar-free, and we’re always happy to chat with you about what your specific needs are :)
-Learn how to make superfood gummy bears with grass-fed gelatin
-Learn how to make satiating energy bites
-Learn about which herbs and superfoods are best to consume in the summer
-Learn about low-glycemic sweetener options (that don’t have a yucky aftertaste)
-Get to try samples!
Two dates to choose from: Friday May 17th or Saturday May 18th

Our next raw chocolate workshop is coming up quick! This time, the focus is on liver health and we’ll be creating chocolates that will appeal to children- just in time for Easter!
Why liver health? Springtime is the time of the Wood element in Traditional Chinese Medicine and the season of the liver (and gallbladder). If your liver qi (energy) isn’t flowing smoothly you’ll probably be noticing things this time of the year like an increase in irritability and anger, and problems with digestion, sleep or menstruation.
Don’t be intimidated, making your own raw chocolates is quick and easy! Once you’ve learned these basic skills that suit any dietary need, the options are endless as to what you can create at home.
- Learn about the benefits of raw cacao products
- Learn about which medicinal mushrooms and superfoods support the liver/gallbladder
- Learn how to transform the superfoods in their cupboards into delicious healthy chocolates that even kids will enjoy!
- Learn 2 basic recipes to build upon from home: 1) vegan “milk” chocolate and 2) vegan dark chocolate
- Learn about various sweeteners, from low glycemic to high.
- Get to sample the chocolates and take a box home to enjoy later ($8 value!)
