Learn About Naturopathic Medicine




To celebrate Naturopathic Medicine Week from October 7 through 13, World Tree Natural Medicine will hold a free class on gut health and fermented foods at 6:30 p.m., October 11.
Dr. Thor Conner says, “Good GI [gastrointestinal] health is central to our approach, using foods as medicine first. Come learn about naturopathic medicine and how to improve your GI health. We’ll be demonstrating how to make kombucha, sauerkraut and other fermented foods, with take-home recipes and advice on how to incorporate fermented foods into your everyday diet for better health.”

      He notes, “Far from being an alternative, naturopathic medicine is complementary to conventional medicine and can often find ways of addressing a disease that can reduce the need for more invasive interventions. Whether you have weight or stress management challenges, suffer from allergies or gut issues or have a chronic illness like Type 2 diabetes, the naturopathic approach is designed to improve your health and keep you well.”

Admission is free. Location: 17W703 Butterfield Rd., Ste. F, Oakbrook Terrace. For more information, call 630-359-5522 or visit WorldTreeNaturalMedicine.com.
