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.”

Intermittent Fasting & Chinese Dumplings | $10

From Rose: “My husband and I started a program to improve our liver health about 10 months ago, after receiving a scary diagnosis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Even though I was eating a healthy vegetarian diet, my liver was in rough shape and my blood sugar had crept up to diabetic levels. We are both experiencing similar benefits on this program, losing weight and getting our blood sugar back to normal levels! Everyone who sees me comments on my weight-loss and younger-looking skin! Best of all, my liver has regenerated itself and my energy has returned.”
What is this program? Intermittent fasting.
Will you go hungry while intermittent fasting? Not if you ease into it with the right support!
What will you learn at Rose’s talk?
-how to guide the body to burn stored fat
-how to get into fasting/ketosis without feeling hungry
-the meaning of ketosis, ketones, and autophagy
-the benefits of fasting for weight-loss, liver health, and overall rejuvenation
-how to make Chinese dumplings!
“Chinese dumpling making is popular in the northern part of China. My father grew up in that region, so I had an amazing teacher when he was still alive. It was such gift which I never forget and would love to share with all of you!”
Last time Rose did a similar talk we had a VERY full house, so register soon to avoid missing out! And you don’t want to miss an opportunity to try her cooking! Trust us :)

Learn to Make Superfood Gummy Bears and Energy Bites: 2 Dates May 17th & 18th

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 :)

Attendees will:

-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

Time: 1pm-3pm

Cost: $32 (plus $2.11 for the Eventbrite fee. Register in person to avoid the fee!)
