The Beet at Ellwood Thompson's

4 North Thompson Street Richmond, VA 23221


“Health” is a topic of global conversation at the moment.

The not-so-great news is that none of us are invincible. The good news? We can absolutely do our part by taking responsibility for our health and wellbeing. For that, there is no magic pill. It comes down to our daily habits, with nutrition and lifestyle at the core. 

In this class, Shelly shares the most important practices in the home that build a strong and resilient immune system. She knows that nutrition can be overwhelming in a world selling "quick fixes", supplements, and new diet fads. Shelly takes a naturopathic approach and gently reminds us how to listen to our inner physician, how best to nourish our bodies, and how to remove obstacles to wellness. 

You’ll walk away with a clear understanding of what strengthens your immune system, as well as what suppresses it! You’ll also learn Shelly’s top seven therapeutic foods to have in your kitchen, along with a handful of delicious, immune-boosting recipes!
