Intermittent Fasting, Prolonged Fasting & Chinese Cooking.
Throughout the years of intermittent and prolonged fasting, I found many issues arise. One of them is that some people have a hard time maintaining the lower weight and start to gain it right back, and some have specific physical issues of which I will touch on later.
Until we understand how to shift our circadian rhythm, improve diversity in our microbiome by fasting (from my own personal experience),
we will still face the same cycles of physical problems.
We have a brand new, never before, talk on strengthening your microbiome, losing weight, getting back your energy and to life again.
I will share easier ways to approach fasting. Plus I have passion for cooking Chinese food. This time I will share with you how to make special dumplings and other Chinese cooking skills.
Cost: $25. March 3rd, Wednesday @ 6:30pm to 8:00pm.
In person seminars are not currently available; Only available online. If rules change we will update.

Bilberry Chocolate &
I created very interesting and unique recipes for my chocolates and now no-bake cookies with bilberries. They are one of the most tasty and delicious recipes I made in my cooking experience.
This is a personal story from Rose to share: Rose’s mother has developed glaucoma in her older years. Her right eye sight was almost blind. We introduced her to the bilberry, she takes 2 tbsp a day. Two days later her eye vision is beginning to come back. One week later her eye doctor is very pleased by her eye pressure results.
For more benefit:
Join us to learn more about bilberry benefits and enjoy each recipe.
February 10th or 20th at 12:30pm to 1:30pm. Only available online. Cost:$20

Fermentation is one of the oldest forms of food processing, and once upon a time, fermentation was a necessary skill in order to preserve food and get sufficient calories and nutrition when food sources were scarce. However, with the advent of fridges, high-speed transportation, and the loss of traditional practices in the kitchen, fermented foods not only became less popular but to some, completely unknown and mysterious. But luckily for us and future generations, the art of fermentation has begun a resurgence and such foods are becoming popular and widely available once again.
If you’ve been paying attention at all to the latest in the nutrition world, you will likely have heard of kombucha, kefir, fermented vegetables and more. Perhaps these once sounded strange and foreign to you, but have recently become a part of your diet. Or perhaps you’ve heard of them but haven’t yet taken the leap and given them a try.
In our modern society, as a whole we have moved away from these foods and let’s face it…we’re not getting any healthier as a species, and our kids are sicker than ever. History has demonstrated that those who enjoy the most thriving and vibrant of health understand that these are exactly the foods that we must include in our daily diets.
To me, the most sustainable way to health is to be armed with the knowledge and wisdom of how to do it yourself. This is how we pass knowledge down through the generations and keep our children and grandchildren healthy. And in the year 2020, this has become more apparent than ever before.
So, if you want to learn how to ferment foods and beverages in your own home, then this class is for you!
It’s time to take the mystery out of achieving and maintaining glowing health. And I mean ‘glowing’ quite literally. By incorporating these foods into your diet, you will see yourself transform. You will:
-look and feel younger
-your mind will be clearer
-your PMS will diminish
-your cravings will go away
-your immunity will thrive
And all of this for pennies a day, using very basic ingredients, some of which you may already have in your own kitchen.
Come on out for some fascinating education, demos, yummy tasters so that you can learn how EASY, TASTY and INEXPENSIVE anti-ageing, immune-boosting, life-transforming nutrition can be.

Preparing Your Body For Fall
Fall is coming and with it tends to come issues with the lungs, such as congestion and infections.
And now, in the age of COVID, it has become apparent more than ever before that we must take responsibility for our own health. In order to protect ourselves and our families, we must inform ourselves as to how to stay healthy and keep a robust immune system that is capable of dealing with exposures of various forms, whether they be microbial or viral in nature. The terrain of the body is what dictates health – the more nourished and diverse the terrain, the better the health outcomes across the board.
From a Chinese Medicine perspective, fall is lung season, and if one does not prepare properly, they will be susceptible to such concerns as this is the most sensitive organ at this time of year.
Another important aspect to thriving in the fall is successfully transitioning from summer. The Chinese say that sickness comes with the changing of the seasons, and the trickiest transition happens to be from summer to fall. By supporting the digestive system to ensure it is strong enough to thoroughly digest the seasonal foods of fall and then winter, you will increase your chances dramatically while others around you fall ill.
If you are interested in learning how you can better thrive and flow with seasonal changes, then join Sascha Kalivoda of Lotus Herbal and New Earth Organics/Vital Essence Herbs for this exciting lecture!
Attendees will learn:
-Herbs and Medicinal Mushrooms that are best suited for the season
-How the Fall (Lung Season) is so critical for ensuring a strong immune system all year long
-How complementary lifestyle habits to meal and herb choices can set you up for success
-How to stoke your digestive fire to avoid digestive upsets and to build a strong immune system
If you are feeling:
-Your immune system is weak and could use a boost
-Your digestion is off
-You are feeling tired and sluggish
-You have feelings of sadness or you find yourself worrying more than usual
-You are susceptible to lung conditions
-You want to best protect and fortify your immune and lung health
then this class is for you!
Please join us at Lotus Herbal Health for this fun and engaging lecture to help you thrive in this Fall/Lung season!
