Pilar's Garden Tips

What you can do right now to get ready for spring!

It certainly doesn't feel like winter right now in Georgia but you are in luck. This means it's a great time to get out in your yard and get ready for spring without freezing while you do it!
Here are a few tips:
* It is easy to see the limb structure of trees now. Tie ribbon around the ones you think should be removed then step back for another look before cutting them off.
* Small leafless shrubs and trees can be transplanted easily now.
* If the ground is dry, till the soil in your vegetable garden. You'll eliminate lots of insects and weeds. Be sure to apply manure or compost and plow it under if you did not do so in the fall.

Healthy Eating and Healing Your Gut

wpilp2

You all have heard me before talk about the GAPS diet, and how it helps your body cure itself of many ailments like inflammation, allergies, and auto-immune diseases.
Last year we hosted Dr. Jamie LaPrairie at our Nutrient Dense Food Conference and we had discussed having her back to host a workshop. We'll let you know later the dates for that.
She is currently offering a GAPS Group! You get the first full month of the Full GAPS Protocol. She will provide all necessary information about getting started, recipes, etc. She will also set up a free 45-minute telephone conversation with you to discuss if GAPS is the best option for you before signing up. The cost of the GAPS group is $100.

Here is a bit about Dr. Jamie LaPrairie:

Jamie LaPrairie Ph.D., NTP, CGP is a Neuroscientist and Associate Research Faculty at Emory University. For most of her career, Dr. LaPrairie's research focused on exposure to neuropsychotropic medication during pregnancy and its impact on fetal brain development and child outcomes. Most recently, she is using a multidisciplinary approach to understanding the role of the microbiome in regulating complex social and cognitive behaviors to gain a greater understanding of the impairments present in individuals with autism spectrum disorder and other pervasive developmental disorders. Dr. LaPrairie is also a certified Nutritional Therapist and GAPS Practitioner and is passionate about educating others on the fundamental role of the gut in human health and disease. If you are interested in working with Jamie one-on-one through the GAPS Nutritional Protocol, please reach out to her at 404-602-2437.
