Nourishing Your Digestive Health

Presented by Holly Morello of Nourishing Excellence Nutritional Therapy.

Learn how to optimize your ancestral nutrition with OPTIMAL DIGESTION. For most of us who have come from a standard American, vegan, or vegetarian diet, and as a result of our modern lifestyle of inward and outward stresses, our digestion is less than optimal. We are eating all this great food, but are we actually absorbing it? Holly will explain how digestion is supposed to work and what happens when it doesn’t. Often times, this is the missing link to those lagging issues that just eating real food doesn’t fix. Holly will also perform a functional evaluation on a volunteer audience member to demonstrate how a nutritional therapist can help you determine where you have digestive dysfunction and what support your body needs to improve it. Please join us for this fun, informative presentation and support Ancestral Heath member, Holly Morello, as she finishes her last Nutritional Therapy Association class assignment (this is her community service project and is free for all attendees).

Parking: Guest parking for The Sage Center is on the street; please do not use the building parking lot.

Dinner: Please feel free to bring your dinner along. There is a New Seasons nearby on SW Cedar Hills Boulevard.

p.s. Holly needs a volunteer! The volunteer will complete some initial assessment information prior to the event (approximately 1 hour of intake info) and be willing to participate in a free functional assessment and Lingual-Neuro Testing (LNT) demonstration at the event. Must be willing to allow some minimal personal information to be shared with the audience for the demonstration to make sense to the attendees. This can be discussed and agreed upon in advance. The functional assessment will require light pressure at certain pressure points to assess tenderness on a scale of 0-10, but is not painful. The LNT will require tasting various supplements. Specific nutritional recommendations will follow the event. Please RSVP by Thursday, May 23 if you are interested in being selected for this free assessment, which is valued at over $200. We will randomly select the lucky volunteer at 8:30 pm of that day. The winner will be contacted on Friday, May 24.

Note: Are you a photographer and/or web developer? I’m looking to trade services. Please contact me, Holly Morello, via Meet-up messaging.

    If you saw today's Oregonian, there is a headline about GMO wheat found in Oregon-bummer. Last night I stated that wheat was not genetically modified but hybridized, unfortunately, I was wrong. GMO wheat has not been approved by the USDA but is being tested. This is very concerning. Here is the link to the article: http://www.oregonlive.com/business/index.ssf/2013/05/genetically_engineered_wheat_f.html#incart_m-rpt-1.

    Hi Everyone! Thanks to all of you that were able to make it to my first ever nutrition presentation-I was truly honored by your presence! Being a part of a community of people that are really motivated and interested in their own heath really inspires me and fuels my passion!
    As promised, here are 2 links to 2 of my favorite websites dedicated to digestive health and their bone broth methods/recipes:

    Hey Everyone! I'm following up about next week's Nourishing Your Digestive Health Meetup! I received a couple volunteers so I will throw your names into a hat and have one of my sons pick one and get back to you today. We didn't get enough "YES" votes for Cultured Caveman delivery & I unfortunately don't have enough time to pick up the orders before the event. If somebody is willing to pick up orders and bring them (orders would needed to be called in and paid for ahead of time), that would be cool but maybe it's something we can think about in the future.

    I'd be thrilled with a dinner from Cultured Caveman... I've been wanting to try them for quite awhile!

    Hi Everyone! Thanks for RSVPing! I'm excited to do this presentation. If you have a specific concern or question that you would like me to address at the event, please send me a private message. Also, I am taking a general poll-if you could have a $10 dinner delivered by Cultured Caveman, would you be interested? I'm not sure if we can pull it off, we need enough people and for it to be delivered. Let me know if this sounds like an option you would go for!
