Functional Day Retreat: Healthy for Life

Boost Brain Function, Reset Weight & Reduce Risk of Disease

Wednesday 10th July 2019 | 10.00am - 16:30pm | Hawthbush Farm, Sussex

Do you have aches and pains that can’t be explained by overuse or injury? Are you having a hard time losing weight no matter how hard you try? Do you have a diagnosis of diabetes, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, IBS or on medication like statins?  Have you noticed you are just not as sharp mentally as you were?

If any of these conditions or symptoms resonate with you then my “Healthy for Life” Day Retreat is for you!

The day delivers an accessible, science-based, client-friendly centred plan for living an active, age-defying, disease-free life.

You will learn how to practically implement diet and lifestyle interventions for achieving optimal health, preserving brain vitality, losing weight, and reducing your risk for chronic diseases through a functional and integrative approach.

Hosted and curated by Tanya Borowski, a fully Certified IFM Practitioner with a specialist interest in functional gastrointestinal & hormone health, she is at the forefront of new research in this area.

Over the course of the day, Tanya will present her in-depth knowledge and up to date research to cover the key functional roles of the gut-immune, gut brain axis and blood sugar metabolic balance. You’ll learn how lifestyle & environmental factors can disrupt this delicate system and lead to symptoms and disease. You will learn how to work on these factors, be given many tools through combining nutritional, lifestyle and supplemental advice to better optimise your overall health.

This dynamic and innovative Day Retreat is set at Hawthbush Farm, in beautiful East Sussex. Masterclasses will take place in the studio of a cosy converted barn overlooking a stunning meadow, with the Sussex Downs as a backdrop.  Practical workshops and cooking demos take place in a rustic open plan kitchen setting in the afternoon. You’ll also enjoy a delicious blood sugar balancing and microbiome boosting lunch.

This event has been created by Tanya to be able to deliver her knowledge and clinical insights within a small group setting for participants to get the most out of the day, as such has been limited to 25 attendees.

Your Day Retreat Includes:

  • “Healthy For Life “Masterclass: by Tanya Borowski:

Tanya will deliver a powerful prescription for optimal health and prevention of dis-ease. Built on current science, presenting a crucial alternative model to the standard health care system of “fixing-the-broken-parts” approach to focusing on prevention and removing underlying causes of dis-ease progression.

  • A gentle mindfulness and yoga-based practicum by Emma Massingham.

Mental and emotional states have a well-documented effect on physical health. We know that when exposed to certain stressful situations humans excrete a hormone called cortisol. If not properly utilized by the body (i.e. fighting or running away from the stressor as per the fight or flight response) cortisol does cause systemic inflammation in the body leading to a host of dis-ease. It is important that we learn stress management techniques to help rid our bodies of excess cortisol and decrease our inflammation.
