Let’s talk about Digestion!
August 13, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
What does digestion really mean? Have you ever thought about how digestion begins in the brain? It begins the very moment you think about food, which is when your body starts preparing for digestion by producing saliva and switching your nervous system into a parasympathetic state. Did you know hormones are involved in releasing digestive juices? Did you know that your gallbladder actually squeezes to release bile that is critical to digesting fats? What does it mean when you have a food allergy? The goal for this class is to teach you step by step about what happens when we digest our food and send you away with simple tools to improve digestion that work for everyone. In this class, we will sample some foods together and talk about what’s happening on the inside. Digestion is like a science experiment happening several times a day inside of our bodies. Let’s take a close look together!
