Dr Libby talks to Pukekohe

Franklin County News - - OUT & ABOUT - RUWADE BRYANT Women’s Well­ness

One of Aus­trala­sia’s lead­ing nutri­tion spe­cial­ists will end her pub­lic speak­ing tour in Pukekohe this month. Nu­tri­tional bio­chemist Dr Libby Weaver has re­leased four new dates for her, From Sur­viv­ing to Thriv­ing: What ev­ery wo­man needs to know, Aus­tralasian tour, where she will share the find­ings from her new book,

Dur­ing her Pukekohe event, which will be held on Fe­bru­ary 23 at the Pukekohe Town Hall, Weaver plans to cap­ti­vate the hearts of women’s well­ness, and will ex­plore ev­ery­thing you need to know about how your body and mind work from a nu­tri­tional, bio­chem­i­cal and emo­tional perspective.

‘‘I’ve writ­ten this book to help women un­der­stand the ‘why’ be­hind some com­mon frus­tra­tions – from the weight you can’t shift, to why you feel trapped on the ‘stress ex­press’, or why you find it so dif­fi­cult to say ‘no’ to some peo­ple,’’ she said.

The speech will cover is­sues such as, how to get to the heart of your emo­tional eat­ing, why you crave sugar, no mat­ter how hard you try to re­sist it, quick tips to get out of ‘‘sur­vival’’ mode when you’re feel­ing over­whelmed and how to fos­ter a pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ship with food and nutri­tion, both for you and your chil­dren.

‘‘Be­ing a wo­man is a beau­ti­ful gift – how­ever, at times it can be easy to lose sight of this. We can of­ten feel be­trayed by our bod­ies, and feel as though we have no con­trol over our thoughts,’’ said Dr Libby.

‘‘I’m pas­sion­ate about help­ing peo­ple to lead ful­filled lives.’’
