Restore your digestive health naturally.
Do you suffer from chronic gastrointestinal symptoms? Do find yourself taking expensive medications or over-the-counter drugs just so you can eat without discomfort? If so, you may be among the one in five Americans who are challenged by gastrointestinal concerns.
This innovative Kripalu program helps you address your gastrointestinal (GI) challenges and restore your health. Learn the connection between GI health, immune imbalance, inflammation, and common symptoms—pain, depression, fatigue, and rashes—that often have their origins in the gut.
- Ways to repair the gut with important nutrients and specific supplementation strategies
- How to remove GI toxins from your diet
- How to decrease inflammation and improve immune function
- How to replace digestive enzymes
- The value of reinnoculation with pre- and probiotics to create a balanced GI “ecosystem”
- Strategies for managing celiac and gluten-related food sensitivities
- Mind-body techniques, meditation, yoga, and guided imagery.
This program is ideal for people who struggle with chronic gastrointestinal symptoms or those diagnosed with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome); IBD (inflammatory bowel disease), e.g., Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis; GERD or “reflux” disease; Celiac disease or gluten sensitivity; and many others.
