What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in the microbiome, holistic health, functional nutrition, food as medicine, etc. Whether you already enjoy these wellness methods or are interested in learning - all are welcome. I started this group to meet other like-minded individuals, and also to help others harness the healing effects of the microbiome.

We live in a country of “high calorie malnutrition” – where there is a wealth of food options but a lot of them are bad - we are over fed and under nourished! Hipocrates said “All disease begins in the gut.” He also said “Let food be thy medicine.” We are learning more and more that all disease (especially chronic health issues like fatigue, headaches, poor immunity, and autoimmune) does begin in the gut and what better way to prevent and heal those diseases than eating the right foods.

In my years of research, learning, and putting into practice all that I know about nutrition, I have overcome my own chronic health issues and I enjoy a much better quality of life now. I want to share that knowledge with the world and help others do the same!

This meetup will consist of different types of get togethers. Getting outside (walks and hiking), casual learning of holistic health, some functional nutrition workshops. Suggestions also welcome. Looking forward to meeting you all!

Herbal Walk at Derby Reach

Derby Reach Regional Park

This is one of many Herbal Walks I will be hosting throughout the year as they are a great way to experience the health benefits of being outside, connecting with nature, and learning about the medicinal plants that grow locally in our community. Trail is rated easy but does have varied terrain. Good shoes and a water bottle are recommended. We will be going at an easy-moderate pace with breaks as we take in the scenery and learn about edible/medicinal plants. We will meet to the right of the parking lot, at the picnic tables. I will wear a lime green t-shirt and I will be bringing my dog (who wears a backpack)! Here is a link to the trail: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/canada/british-columbia/houston-trail *Note there are 2 locations for Derby Reach. There is the main Derby Reach Regional Park with the big park sign, we are not going to that one. The Houston Trail is the smaller parking lot, the address should take you to the right one.
