Course / Workshop Content
Course / Workshop Content The food we eat really has a significant impact on our moods! Research shows that a highly refined, high-sugar, high-additive and an ultra-processed diet especially can lead to low mood and mental health issues. This happens through several mechanisms. This includes activating reward centres of the brain, compromising the digestive function and gut health and negative effects on the immune and nervous systems. WHO IS THIS FOR? This course is for anyone who wants the knowledge of how to improve their diet to help themselves to feel healthier and happier. If you are ready to take charge of your food to change your mood, then this course is for you! WHAT WILL I LEARN?
