  • Is your belly always upset? Do you know the location of every bathroom in town? Are you wondering if you could do more to help yourself, rather than going to the doctor for yet another prescription?

In this class, we will discuss how your GI system is supposed to work, as well as what is going wrong when it doesn’t seem to work at all. We will discuss common diagnoses, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and gastro-esophageal reflux, as well as less common symptoms that may be related to your gut, such as arthritis, anxiety, and depression. We’ll also cover food sensitivities, including gluten intolerance and celiac disease, and a variety of self-care modalities, including dietary changes and the use of supplements. Bring your questions. $25/person. 2 Karma Recipient spaces are available on request.
