Women & Wellness Webinar Series: Nutrition & Neurodivergence with Barb Cook

A live virtual workshop presented by Barb Cook Developmental Educator, Integrative Nutritionist & Adult ADHD Coach

We all need energy. How we obtain it however can come from a variety of sources. We can get energy from food which gives us calories to burn, sleep which restores our mental and physical wellbeing so we have energy to do things throughout the day, and from doing things we enjoy.

Looking at all the different ways to obtain energy has me thinking about the necessity of food. Food provides our bodies with fuel as well as sustaining life. Over the past few decades, we have seen an enormous increase in food choices, but a decline in health as obesity, diabetes, coronary heart disease and cancer rise in increasing numbers. With the increased food availability and choices, surely, we should be getting healthier, not sicker?

This webinar will explore the many aspects of food and nutrition and how it can impact or improve our mental well-being, make us feel sluggish or energetic, and to sift through the enormous amount of literature on what is good or not so good for us to eat. Barb will also explore the impacts of food choices and diet on the autistic and ADHD person and mind, along with the challenges of restricted food choices that can occur from textural and taste sensitivities. Plus, the additional concerns of related conditions that can occur, ranging from gut issues, food intolerances and sensitivities, allergies, brain fog, yeast overgrowth, and age-related concerns of peri/menopause, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and neurological decline.
