The importance of what and how you eat effects not your just your appetite.
Science is now aware that immune system, nervous system and brain supportive chemicals are influenced and monitored in the gut.
The way you feed your child can influence his cognition, his mood and his immune system.
Virginia will discuss how foods break down into the micro nutrients needed for optimal absorption and nutrition focusing on the importance of increasing phyto-nutrients in daily eating…how to “hide” them in your child’s favorite dishes.

Seasonal Cooking Class:
April 16th 9:30 – 12:30
As we welcome spring with open arms, we feel and see the changes in nature and in our bodies. We can feel the motivation for movement as the buds bloom all around us. Our bodies are ready to move more also. The easiest and most gentle yet effective exercise is deep breathing. Go outside in the crisp morning air and awaken your lungs with deep slow breaths that reach down to the abdomen. Then slowly exhale all the old stagnant air to make room for the freshness spring air affords us.
Green is the prominent color and so it should be also with our meals. Liver and gall bladder are the organ system being nurtured this time of year.
It is time to wipe off the dust off your juicer and bring it to life again. Treat yourself to 6oz. of a refreshing green juice few times a week as a snack…your liver will thank you.
This months seasonal cooking class will continue the focus on a liver friendly meal.
Last month’s Dandelion leek with pickled artichoke dish was a hit and I loved hearing from you how much you enjoyed preparing it.

Testimonials: An Introduction to You Can Heal You
At the young age of 23 years old, Virginia was terminally ill and given little chance of surviving the medical diagnosis of Crohn’s disease and Takayasu Ateritis. As a result, she also suffered a stroke, and became depressed and bedridden.
In her desperate search, she learned about an inexpensive method of eating very simply that promised complete regeneration of her digestive system. After a few months on the program, Ginny went from death’s door completely symptom-free. This 180-degree reversal came after seven years of suffering the painful symptoms of digestive inflammation and with multiple hospital visits. The healing experience brought her knowledge about the workings of her body and the profound connection between all digestive illnesses and the food each person has been eating. The program also restored her body’s innate flexibility, her ability to have children (she went on to have two), and gave her back flexibility and a youthful appearance.
She went on to study this profound knowledge in order to help others. And for the last 20 years she has consulted with clients all over the world, including Europe, Canada, Russia, Australia, China and much of the US. Her focus is showing people that, contrary to what the doctors and current medical education has told them, they can *completely* cure their intestinal disease—regardless of the particular disease name they’ve been given. Ginny’s expertise is in facilitating healing of the digestive track at whatever stage or condition it is in. These principles compliment medical treatment and are compatible with all religions and cultures.
Recognized as one of the leading digestive counselors in the world, she is the author of the book Controlling Crohn’s Disease the Natural Way, now in its third edition. Virginia also founded the Ki of Life Learning Center, a nonprofit residential study house in 2003. She is the head nutritional counselor at the 5-star Sha Wellness Clinic in Alicante, Spain and works there 5 months every summer. She is active in educating on the prevention of Crohn’s and Colitis. She is a regular speaker at area universities and teaches in Canada, England and Spain.
