Your “gut” is more than just your stomach: it is actually a group of organs that starts with the mouth and ends with the colon. The health of this system has a profound impact on the overall health of your entire body. Join us for a webinar with nurse practitioner Sarah Bird, DNP, who will discuss the importance of maintaining excellent gut health and how you can influence your microbiome to improve your immune function, mood, and metabolism.
Well-being is about having the inner resources to meet stress while being in the midst of it. Our educational Know Yourself Workshops are designed to help you improve your overall well-being, awareness, and resilience to stress. In this virtual workshop, participants are introduced to the groundbreaking Know Yourself DVD curriculum, which offers tools, concepts and self-reflection exercises to help foster calmness, self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and mind-body health. The workshop takes place over three consecutive weeks, with a 90-minute virtual meeting each week (see times and dates below). Each week the Anthropedia Certified Instructor leads workshop participants through the content, offering additional material and reflective exercises to enhance learning.
There is a French saying, “c’est en forgeant qu’on devient forgeron,” which translates to “it is smithing that makes the smith,” or “it is in doing that we become.” Working towards meaningful goals is inherently transformative. Accomplishing personal goals improves our sense of purpose, self-efficacy, and satisfaction with life. In this webinar, well-being coach Sarah Lewis will teach you to formulate, set, and take action on your goals using the SMART method and concepts from Anthropedia’s Know Yourself workshops. This will be an interactive webinar: please have a notebook and writing utensil on hand.

Ready to reset, work on your longevity, or lose weight? We invite you to participate in our ProLon® Challenge, a group wellness tournament to help boost metabolism and improve cellular health. To help monitor your level of fast and fat-burning, we have added the Biosense™ Breath Ketone Monitor to your kit.

We encourage you to complete an optional Body Composition Analysis before and after the challenge to measure your results, for an additional $20 each.
