From Exhausted to Energized: Change Your Diet and Banish Fatigue
Tuesday, April 22nd
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Community Room, FREE

Fatigue can be overcome and energy can be restored. Regardless of the form of fatigue that you experience, be it chronic (such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Addison’s or adrenal fatigue) or acute (such as adrenal stress or cohabitating tiredness from stress, medication, chemotherapy, overwork, depression, hypothyroidism, menopause or imbalanced gut health), there is hope.

This workshop focuses on one piece of the solution for all forms of exhaustion, which is the adoption of an anti-inflammatory diet.  Your resilience to stress, your vitality, your endurance and even your very happiness all depend on the proper functioning of your adrenal glands and your adrenal glands are reliant upon calming down inflammation. In addition to learning about the anti-inflammatory diet, you will learn which specific foods are beneficial for your adrenal glands and restoring the energy in your cells and which foods are energy robbers. Most importantly, we will discuss time- and energy-saving techniques in the kitchen so that eating healthy restores your energy stores, not depletes them.  $5 Gift Card. Space is limited. RSVP is Required by calling 720.941.4100
