The Anti-Inflammatory Diet:
Eating for Vitality and Optimal Health
Do you think your diet is “healthy” but you wonder why your energy is low and you just don’t feel as great as you used to? Many people think they are eating “right,” but are missing out on key foods and nutrients or are even eating too many of the WRONG ones. The Anti-Inflammatory Diet takes advantage of all of the current data on nutrition, indigenous eating habits and different cultural dietary patterns to uncover the Diet’s impact on health, disease states, immune functioning and stress on the body. Chronic inflammation is a major driver of many, if not all, diseases. The Anti-Inflammatory Diet is designed to replace inflammation-triggering foods with nutrient-dense foods that fight inflammation and support a healthy immune response.
In these workshops, you will learn specific dietary strategies that can reduce inflammation, decrease the risk for many chronic diseases, and improve mood and energy levels. Each workshop is focused on a specific health concern that the Anti-Inflammatory Diet benefits and how to adapt the Anti-Inflammatory Diet for disease management or prevention. These workshops are presented by Katie Bauer, Founding Director of Nourished Health Center. She is a Digestive Health Specialist, Holistic Nutritionist, Clinical Herbalist, Therapeutic Chef, Anti-Inflammatory Activist and the Creator of The Vitality Transformation Blueprint©.

Whether you have an autoimmune or degenerative form of arthritis, fibromyalgia, headaches or other chronic pain, the Anti-Inflammatory Diet will benefit you. Inflammation is at the root of all pain and decreasing the inflammation in your body will decrease pain intensity and prevalence. Additionally, inflammation triggers an immune cascade that can re-engage the body in attacking its own tissues and joints. In this workshop, in addition to learning about the anti-inflammatory diet, you will learn which specific foods are beneficial and which foods may trigger arthritis flares. Check out this article, to learn more about overcoming your pain and to get a preview of what will be discussed in the workshop.
From Exhausted to Energized: Change Your Diet and Banish Fatigue
Tuesday, February 25, 6:30-8pm, Cherry Creek Whole Foods, 2375 E 1st Ave, Denver, CO. Each attendee receives a Whole Foods $5 Gift Card. Space is limited. RSVP Below is Required.
Fatigue can be overcome and energy can be restored. Regardless of the form of fatigue that you experience, be it chronic (such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Addison’s or adrenal fatigue) or acute (such as adrenal stress or cohabitating tiredness from stress, medication, chemotherapy, overwork, depression, hypothyroidism, menopause or imbalanced gut health), there is hope. This workshop focuses on one piece of the solution for all forms of exhaustion, which is the adoption of an anti-inflammatory diet. Your resilience to stress, your vitality, your endurance and even your very happiness all depend on the proper functioning of your adrenal glands and your adrenal glands are reliant upon calming down inflammation. In addition to learning about the anti-inflammatory diet, you will learn which specific foods are beneficial for your adrenal glands and restoring the energy in your cells and which foods are energy robbers. Most importantly, we will discuss time- and energy-saving techniques in the kitchen so that eating healthy restores your energy stores, not depletes them.
Restore Your Digestion & Restore Your Health with the Anti-Inflammatory Diet

There is so much more to digestion than our gastrointestinal system. Our digestion determines our ability to get nutrients out of our food; our ability to create neurotransmitters that fuel our brain and stabilize our emotional and mental health; our ability to properly utilize proteins, fats and carbs so that we have stable blood sugar; and our ability to create hormones in our body that influence our sex life, our energy levels and our ability to respond to stress. When our digestion is disturbed, every process in our body is disturbed. And inflammation is what peturbs our digestive health most. Inflammation in our gastrointestinal tract results in inflammation in our brain, our joints and our life; as well as for some people, results in diarrhea, constipation, alternating diarrhea and constipation, cramping, gnarly gas and bloating. Inflammation also upregulates our immune system and in cases of Inflammatory Bowel Disease and other autoimmune disorders, the body is triggered to assault its own tissues. Everyone’s immune system triggers can be different. In this workshop, we will discuss those foods that are inflammatory for everyone, those foods that are anti-inflammatory for most people and those foods that are common immune triggers individually.
