Susun Weed Master Class: Optimum Nutrition the Wise Woman Way

April 4 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Join bestselling author Susun Weed for a five-part series, Optimum Nutrition the Wise Woman Way.

The fun, hands-on, live classes will teach us all about effectively transferring nutrients from our food into our bodies.

About the Master Class:

Your ancestors didn’t ask, ‘What should I eat?’ They asked, ‘Will I have food to survive?’ Nutrition isn’t about following a specific diet; Weston Price found healthy communities thriving on diverse cuisines. It’s about effectively transferring nutrients from your food into your body.

Rather than dictate what you eat, Susun will teach us how to let our diets change us through proper nutrient absorption.

This course will help you:

  • Abandon your food anxieties
  • embrace nutritional wisdom,
  • and learn to nourish yourself the natural way.

Join us in this journey of holistic self-nourishment.
