Understanding the role the mind plays in health & healing

Saturday 8 June, 3-5pm

There is nothing more interesting in this world than your mind and nothing quite as powerful either. 

The role that our thoughts, belief systems, attitudes and emotions play in health is nothing less then monumental. That being said, how much do we really know about harnessing the power of the mind to heal and to live a magical life, rich in meaningful experiences?

Science is entering a golden age in understanding the role the mind plays in health and healing.  

Join Heath, naturopath and co-owner of The Raw Kitchen, for a 2 hour presentation on the wondrous mind and its role in health:

  • How thoughts effect hormones and the biochemistry of the body

  • The chemical that suppresses unwanted thoughts 

  • How to regrow your brain bigger, happier and smarter

  • The fastest way to calm down a stress response

  • The effect gut microbes have on the mind

  • The effect sun exposure has on brain health

  • The role of tonic herbalism in mental health and more... 

Come and enjoy an afternoon at The Raw Kitchen with a 'special guest' menu price and a complimentary elixir on us with your meal before or after the lecture.

The Fasting Mimicking Diet Workshop
Achieve the incredible benefits of fasting, but with food!

Saturday 22nd June, 4.15-6.45pm

Fasting can be a highly effective way to switch on anti-ageing genes, shift into fat burning mode and reboot the immune system. All cells use the opportunity during a fast to ‘clean house’, and as a result, a multitude of symptoms and conditions can see change, from high blood pressure and cholesterol to inflammatory conditions, autoimmune diseases and more.

Accordingly, fasting is best used as an integrated part of a holistic lifestyle. Fasting strengthens the body, mind and spirit, even if only done once or twice a year!

“BUT FASTING IS SO HARD, I COULD NEVER DO IT!”  Well you don’t necessarily need to!

Valter Longo – lead researcher at USC (University of Southern California) Longevity Institute – managed to not only identify the main biological pathways responsible for the benefits achieved from fasting, but also how to mimic them, without having to ‘fast’! He coined the term ‘Fasting Mimicking Diet’ (FMD) to describe the dietary principles they used in the lab to induce the characteristic benefits of fasting.

The FMD was designed to achieve the following goals;

  1. Provide sufficient calories to be considered safe

  2. Provide a variety of components that most people can enjoy

  3. Be 100% plant-based

  4. To be equally as effective as fasting, if not more so

Join Heath (naturopath & co-owner of The Raw Kitchen) and Aurora (Holistic Health Nut) as they discuss the incredible benefits of the Fasting Mimicking Diet, how to do it, how to supercharge it with ‘Food as Medicine’ principles and teach you how to make the following recipes:

  • Curry laksa with high fibre konjac noodles

  • Turmeric fried cauliflower rice with ferments and lime ‘cream’

  • Zucchini noodle pasta with coriander pesto and sunflower sprouts.

  • Buckwheat risotto with medicinal mushrooms and greens

  • The 500 calorie nutrient dense super smoothie with blue green algae and emulsified DHA

You'll have the opportunity to taste every recipe demonstrated and ask all the questions you can think of. All recipes are 100% free from gluten, dairy, refined sugar and egg and made using the finest whole food ingredients.

This is demonstration-based workshop and is not hands on.

Everyone should do this 5 day Fasting Mimicking Diet at least once a year; it’s the ultimate cellular spring clean and rejuvenation program. Why 5 days? Because it takes 3 days to set up the fast on a cellular level. All of the good stuff happens after 3 days. This is not intermittent fasting, this is next level.” Heath
