Linda Blachman Transitions Workshops – SF Bay Area

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Hello dear colleagues,

Linda Blachman

Linda Blachman

I’m delighted to announce the launch of my life transitions workshops for women midlife and beyond, starting mid-July in Berkeley, California. There will be two concurrent groups,
5 sessions each, Wednesdays, 7-9 pm, Sundays 2-4 pm.

Each session will engage you with a variety of ideas, practices and tools (including
guided imagery) for connecting deeply with yourself and the present moment and discovering a creative path through change.

Got Stress? Your Gut Feels It!

Stress and the gut: pathophysiology, clinical consequences, diagnostic approach and treatment options by P.C. Konturek et al. provides a comprehensive review on the impact of stress on the gut. I consider this a must-read article. A crucial piece of healing the alimentary canal is addressing the toll that chronic stress can take on digestive integrity. Gut functions such as digestive secretions, motility, mucosal permeability, barrier defense, visceral sensitivity and our precious microbiota are impacted by stress. Alterations of the “brain-gut-microbiota axis” trigger an array of gastrointestinal disorders from reflux to irritable and inflammatory bowel disease.
