Palestra "What's Happening to our Thyroid?!" - lecionado em inglês

terça feira 2 de fevereiro das 20.00 às 21.30

Nota importante: o workshop será lecionado em inglês mas poderá ter tradução para português quando necessário

More and more people -- men now too -- are suffering from Thyroid "disorders" though few have made the connection to this all-important gland and what they are slogging through.

There are two hormones that are used by every cell of our bodies which are Vitamin D and Thyroid (and they are related).

Signs & symptoms of over or underactive thyroids depending on the condition include cold intolerance or being too warm (hot flashes); tingling and/or numbness in hands & feet; trembling hands; brittle nails; muscle weakness; abnormal even wild fluctuations in menstruation; constipation or diarrhea; nervousness; fatigue; inability to sleep (insomnia); brain fog; inability to concentrate; memory loss; coarse hair; hair loss (especially in the outer 3rd of the eyebrows); dry skin; hoarseness, apathy; depression; crankiness; stubborn weight gain, or inability to gain weight; and more

Whether you are still healthy or have been diagnosed with one of the Thyroid conditions, come learn about what the Thyroid is, how it is affected by our daily environment (including foods) and how to keep yours in the best shape for maximum life enjoyment.

We'll talk about the gland itself, what effects it has on the body, what goes wrong, and how to make it right including a brief rundown of the possible tests that most doctors do not run (and we'll discuss why the one they do give is not effective so people struggle for years more before finally getting a diagnosis and relief), along with an overview of the possible treatments and remedies (with a focus on healing and prevention).

An opening presentation will start the talk with a Q&A session after and samples of some gluten-free foods that are satisfying and delicious, with an additional bonus for attending. Talk will be in English with possibility of simultaneous translation into Portuguese.

About Sami Hayes:
Hailing from Portland, Oregon, which is the Porto, Portugal of the US, and also perhaps the Vegan capitol of the world (more vegan eateries per capita than anywhere else). This allowed me to learn from some of the best people in the world including several celebrated chefs, published authors, and healers of all modalities added to extensive personal research.

I've currently been traveling for the last 3.5 years spending most of my time in Porto which has captured my heart.

I believe that nothing is more important and healing than the food we eat, or potentially more damaging. My motivation for learning was my own journey of being sick, very sick and worsening for years before I hit my personal rock bottom and said enough. I went to a raw food retreat and within a week was off of all medications and feeling better than I had in years.

Happy to share my story with you and the tricks and insights I've learned since, whether you want to go fully raw and gluten-free or just want to find ways to make healthier foods a part of your daily life, plus understand their impact on your life and body.

Available as a consultant, health coach (including on how to go veg, raw and/or gluten-free), private chef, personal or group lessons, and more. Please see my website at or contact me via email at to explore the possibilities.
