Join us for our Spring meeting on 4/27/2017. It will feature the return of Charis Lindrooth, DC. Doors open at 6:30pm at the United Steelworkers Hall in Bethlehem. It’s free and there’s plenty of parking. Her presentation: “A Little Dirt Doesn’t Hurt!”
About the presentation
As we tend to our herbal gardens the soil at our feet is teeming with life, microbia of all sorts. Similarly, the human body harbors up to ten times as many microbial cells as human cells.
What are these microbes and what are they doing? What do they tell us about ourselves? From weight loss and cancer, to chronic inflammation and even decision making, these bugs are playing a major role. Let’s take a look inside and see how we can foster a friendly family of bugs and approach wellness from a new perspective.
