An exciting coup for a small independent wholefood shop in a rural town —The Olive Branch in Clonakilty will welcome brilliant young Australian naturopath Ben Brown, Technical Director at Viridian Nutrition and a leading expert on nutritional, herbal and lifestyle medicine to O’Donovan’s Hotel, Clonakilty on Thursday, April 30. In one of only three seminars in Ireland, the acclaimed International speaker will share his knowledge on digestive health with the people of West Cork.

‘The Digestive Health Solution’ educational seminar breaks the myth that most digestive illness is medically unexplained, providing scientific research of effective natural solutions for optimal digestive health.

Stomach cramps, pain, discomfort, bloating, gas, diarrhea and constipation affect one in four people, and are collectively called irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

People can suffer tremendously from these symptoms, which often are not just simply a digestive issue but are also related to severe fatigue, muscle pain, headaches, depression and anxiety. Remarkably though, the symptoms of IBS are still considered an enigma with no known cause, when in fact extensive research has uncovered a number of different ways to resolve them and enhance digestive health. This presentation explores the mind-body connection, food intolerances, gluten sensitivity, dietary changes and the key issues in the digestive system, and provides practical ways to transform your digestive health.

Research will also be shown on popular natural supplements, sifting fact from fiction, and uncovering evidence-based and safe treatments that can enhance digestion and improve or even eliminate symptoms, fast. Ben will explain how you can improve your health from the inside out and enjoy better digestive health, for life.

Ben is on boards at the UK College of Nutrition and Health (BCNH) and his lectures are in demand all over the world. He specialises in plain English solutions that come from science.

His new book ‘The Digestive Health Solution’ is a groundbreaking and extensively researched work on natural solutions for optimal digestive health.

Reservations for the seminar taking place at O’Donovan’s Hotel in Clonakilty on April 30 can be made by calling The Olive Branch on 023 8835711 or calling in to the shop. Places are limited so please book asap.
