Embracing a Sensational Life

Week of October 14, 2023

Embracing a Sensational Life
The traditional five physical senses of smell, taste, touch, vision, hearing are how humans interact with the world around them. They are incredibly complex and sensitive, yet they provide more limited information than what we believe, and are supported by over a dozen additional senses that you will be introduced to. The equally fascinating and uplifting cognitive senses of compassion, wonder, gratitude, and humor will be revealed and explored. The program offers you the opportunity to truly appreciate and embrace all of your vibrant and exhilarating senses. Embracing a Sensational Life Handout 2023

Gut Feelings: Brain, Gut, Diet, Microbiome Connection
Prepare to be astounded by the revolutionary advances in the life sciences. New scientific discoveries have brought what had been considered science fiction to today’s reality. Our brain, gut, microbiome (the microbes that live in and on our body), diet, and genes are all intimately intertwined. They influence each other with profound effects on mood, energy, mental health, and overall wellness. The gut is a ‘second brain’ and has a vital role in our physical and mental health. This program will open your eyes to the dawning of a new era in medicine and health. Gut Instincts Brain, Gut, Microbiome, Diet Genome Connection Rancho La Puerta Handout 2023
