THE PURPOSE OF THIS WORKSHOP is to help parents understand the significance of gut health and healing as the foundation of their child's well-being. Gut physiology and the basics of gut healing will be discussed. The course is designed to help parents of breastfeeding infants and toddlers take a more holistic approach to problems such as "colic', reflux, allergies, eczema, low milk supply, oversupply, etc.

Many parents find themselves confronted with the reality of infants and young children whose guts have been compromised during pregnancy or birth, infancy or early childhood as a result of the mother's leaky gut, birth interventions, exposure to artificial feeding, medications, allergens and/or environmental toxins. Indications or associated conditions in infancy include "colic", infrequent stooling, fussiness, "reflux" or GERD, high-need behaviours, tongue-tie, allergies, poor growth or failure to thrive, eczema and thrush and often include "behaviour problems" or "picky-eating" in older children. Maternal issues include: history of infertility, PCOS, over or undersupply, depression, chronic infection including plugged ducts or mastitis, allergy, asthma, chronic or frequent infections such as sinus or UTIs, digestive problems, migraines, fatigue, poor sleep, candida, skin conditions and other inflammatory conditions One semi-private 2 1/2 hour session held with 3-4 participants to address personalized strategies for your own families--your individual questions and answers will be addressed within the group Workshop is held once per week; once the worksop has reached a capacity of 4 attendees, the next one will be scheduled. Requests for dates and times that accommodate your time zone may be made.

For the first time ever, we are offering the very popular Self-care and Home Remedies workshop as a webinar! We are also offering the Sumati Home Remedy KIT to attendees.

In our culture, the concept of well-child care has trained us to rely on doctors to treat the simplest of ailments from coughs and colds, to stomach aches and insect bites. Yet, taking care of our own children – keeping them well and treating them ourselves– can be the most empowering of experiences. Choosing safe and effective remedies is usually quite simple with the proper information. We will discuss simple home remedies to address many of the most common ailments, drawing upon over twenty years of practical experience. Raising children with a holistic approach to well-being instills a confidence and attunement that they will carry with them throughout their lives.

“When we learn a new language, we will always speak it with an accent, but for our children, it will become their native tongue.”– Unknown
We are presenting the Home Remedy Workshop as a 6 hour lecture over two dates. JANUARY 26 and FEBRUARY 2, 2013 from 2pm-5pm EST on each day (please note that this is Eastern Standard time). Please plan to attend if possible so as to have your questions answered, but the webinars will be taped and available for two weeks after the presentation for pre-registrants ONLY who are in other time zones or who might miss part of it

Comments from previous presentations:

“The series was more helpful and informative than many of the ‘Holistic’ health books I’ve purchased over the years, and I do think what I learned was well-worth the time and expense. I recommend this series wholeheartedly, and feel anyone who is motivated to find alternative paths to wellness, or has many questions about the path they’ve already begun will find more than their money’s worth in this series." --– Liberty Liscomb, Families for Conscious Living, CT

“Buying the kit has made a huge difference in treating myself and my family. All the products are fantastic and we have the kit out all the time. I love being able to help teach my kids how to take responsibility for their own health.”– Sabrina Granniss, IBCLC

"Jen's Sumati kit is an excellent and empowering collection of products and her class teaches one how to use them. There is nothing like making the salve to put on a cut or burn, providing relief for an upset stomach, or helping one find allusive sleep. It was an excellent investment that has more than paid for itself."...Amy Farber Monticello

"Jen also introduced me to wonderful alternative practitioners who have been vital to our health. The holistic first aid kit I purchased from her is used constantly and my family has been amazed at what we've accomplished with alternative medicine. I've only scratched the surface of all there is to learn but with Jennifer and the network of women she has set up, I am inspired to learn more all the time. "...Cori Roy Griswold

"I recently purchased Jen's Home Remedy Kit and took her intensive course on the use of the remedies. It has been absolutely life-changing! I use it on literally a daily basis-- for cuts and scrapes, bug bites, illnesses, stomach-aches, teething, everything imagineable! Even my medicine-loving husband swears by our kit and raves about it to anyone who will listen. "...Tammy Outlaw-Miller
“Jennifer and Elisabeth are truly amazing sources of information. I am very thankful to them both for offering this kit and the series of classes they offer.”– Liberty Liscomb, Families for Conscious Living, CT

“…The kit has empowered me; I feel confident that I can care for my family’s health and well-being using this arsenal of knowledge Jen has given me. Before I had the kit, when my children were sick I would feel helpless to ease their symptoms and help their bodies heal, but now I have tools at my fingertips to help them to feel better and recover quickly. I highly recommend this kit, and I highly recommend Jennifer”…..Kate Cordick-Burns Heiser, CT, USA

Elisabeth Taylor is certified flower essence practitioner, registered classical homeopath, nutritional advisor and ordained minister serving through Universal Ministries and the Homeopathy Congress.

Elisabeth trained as a classical homeopath through the British Institute of Homeopathy. She then the studied under the direction of Grant Bentley at the Victorian College of Classical Homeopathy to learn homeopathic facial analysis which has allowed her to gain a deeper understanding and practical application of homeopathic medicine. In pursuit of her love of flower essences as a healing modality she trained directly under Rhonda Pallas Downey and was certified in the Living Flower Essence range. She also trained with David Dalton at Delta Gardens to learn the Teasel flower essence protocol which has enabled her to bring relief to many people living with Lyme disease. She currently works with several ranges of flower essences including, but not limited to: English Essences, Australian Bush Flower Essences, North American Flower Essences and Living Flower Essences. She holds a diploma in clinical nutrition and works as a nutritional advisor specializing in food sensitivities and therapeutic diets.

Elisabeth is the mother of three amazing, healthy children who have taught her more about healing and faith in the body’s abilities than any formal program ever could. Though she discovered homeopathic medicine and flower essences long before having children, it was because of them that she chose to pursue her degrees and certifications formally. They have provided the space for her to access her intuition and internal guidance more fully, which is something that she is passionate about teaching. She lives, practices and teaches out of Connecticut. She also runs a private training facility in partnership with her husband.

Elisabeth uses a variety of techniques to assist her clients on their journey of personal transformation. Synthesizing her knowledge of homeopathic medicine, flower essences, biochemic therapies, homotoxicology, and nutrition she find ways to support her clients in ways that makes sense to them within the context of their lives.

The Sumati Home Remedy KIT was co-developed and the project co-owned with Lynn Ofori.
