Julie Allen, a Functional Medicine Practitioner from Live to a Hundred was the guest speaker and facilitator at the recent Health & Wellness workshop which was held at Hirsch’s Strubens Valley recnelty. Julie specialises in genetics and chronic diseases, and she looks at what happened that leads to a particular condition and how one can reverse this. She focused on the impact that sugar has on our moods and mental health.
“Julie explained blood sugar management and the factors affecting this. She also spoke on normal insulin response to food versus insulin resistant response to food including the dangers of certain foods. The important thing to remember is that all of our bodies are different and react differently to foods. The morning was extremely insightful. The attendees kept Julie busy with all their questions and concerns.” commented PRO, Marjone Barnard.
