Three Myths About Healing Diets


We interviewed Jess Sherman, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, about three myths about healing diets and how to focus on what really matters.
You may have heard that changing your child’s diet can help them calm down, focus, learn better, sleep better and feel better.
Maybe you’ve tried gluten-free or GAPS or Paleo, or maybe you’ve been scared away from this approach or aren’t sure if it’s worth it.
In this webinar, holistic nutritionist and author Jess Sherman cleared the confusion and explained why food is such a powerful tool and how to avoid getting confused by contradictory information.
Jess explained away the three most common misconceptions that discourage families from exploring food as a tool.
She also helped us understand how to leverage four nutritional concepts to help kids self-regulate better.
This webinar will be helpful to you if you are a parent or practitioner new to the idea of using food as a therapeutic tool or if you’ve been at it for a while and find yourself bogged down in details and needing some clarity.
