About the event
What if I told you that we make a set of chemicals in our own bodies – called bio-chemicals - that are more powerful than the medications and drugs that mimic those bio-chemicals - - and I had the science to prove it, would you listen? What if I told you that the simplest act - - one that everyone alive can perform - - triggers those bio-chemicals? And – what if I said, “When triggered, they calm us, rid our bodies of inflammation, improve our digestive system, help us think, focus, concentrate, sleep, and find peace”? This session does just that, and the information applies to every setting and age group.
- Name at least one bio-chemical that alarms us and, over time, can harm us.
- Name at least one bio-chemical that comforts and calms us and, over time, can heal us.
- Name at least one way we can trigger the biochemicals that comfort and calm us.
