6-week Keto Boot Camp

  • Boot Camp will meet every Wednesday 6:15-7:45 pm at Farmacopia beginning February 7th
  • Dates: February 7, 14, 21, 28 & March 7, 14

[registration has ended]

Welcome to the Keto-Cleanse Boot Camp! This is a 6-week program where you will be personally guided through a metabolic transformation led by Dr. Bonnie Nedrow. She will teach you to become the master of your metabolism through Keto-adaptation.


Keto-adaptation is a metabolic process where you train your body to easily burn fat. Most people in our culture are not fat-adapted and are instead carbohydrate dependent. That means they need carbs for energy because their body does not easily burn fat. Through a low-carb, ketogenic diet you will train your body to be more flexible in the way it burns calories. Rather than waiting for carbohydrates to come in, we can teach our bodies to burn its other fuel source: fat.

Once you teach your body to do this, you can choose what fuel you want to burn at any given time.

Learn how to partake in an abundance of delicious and nutrient-rich foods, without getting stuck in carbohydrate dependency. This is a departure from most low-carb programs that dictate long-term avoidance of major food groups. Once metabolically flexible, you will be able to enjoy a wide variety of fruits, veggies, grains and legumes.

In this course, you will:

  • Gain the ability to regulate your metabolism through nutrition, exercise and stress reduction.
  • Become skilled at choosing when you want to use healthy foods for fuel and when you want to burn stored fat.

Who is a great candidate for a Keto-Cleanse?

  • those interested in weightloss
  • folks looking to reduce their toxic burden
  • women seeking a smooth transition into menopause
  • partners hoping to set the stage for healthy conception & pregnancy
  • those interested in clearer mental performance
  • those managing inflammatory & autoimmune conditions
  • those seeking blood pressure and blood sugar regulation

Boot Camp includes ($597):

  • (6) 1.5 – 2 hour guided sessions with Dr. Bonnie
  • Weekly Q&A email group
  • Boot Camp will meet every Wednesday 6:15-7:45 pm at Farmacopia beginning February 7th
  • Dates: February 7, 14, 21, 28 & March 7, 14

Additional supplies & supplements are approximately $265

In this class you will learn the premise of becoming the master of your metabolism. Once you train your body to be an efficient fat burner, you can choose what fuel you want to burn at any given time.

Hacking your Microbiome [for Mood]

Wednesday, January 17 | 6-7:30 pm | Free Class

Is your digestive tract stressing you out?

Join Certified Nutrition Consultant Paige Doyle as she dives into the hidden power of our guts. We’ve heard we should be tending our digestive system by eating fermented foods and ingesting probiotics, but beyond quelling digestive discomfort, do you really know why? Research has revealed the gut connection to nutritional deficiencies, allergies and even metabolism, but did you know it may be the great influencer of your brain?

A growing group of researchers around the world are investigating how the hormones, microbes, and other messengers in our guts regulate how we think and feel. Yes, that means these critters may be the masterminds behind the way we perceive the world and how we react to it —- here’s looking at you: anxiety, depression and stress.

In this workshop Paige will present the latest research in gut-brain health plus share the best nutritional therapies, botanics, and probiotic strains to balance your brain and body. Ring in the new year with a healthy gut and happy mind!

Seating is limited to 20*

The Alchemy of Winter Solstice

Circle around with Julie Benefico – Clinical Herbalist and owner of Opal Elements Cosmic Apothecary – as we celebrate this time of year, delving into the folklore of the Winter Solstice, also known as Yule, and the traditions that were once celebrated during this time.

You will learn about herbs commonly used during this time and get to know their medicinal & magical properties. Winter Solstice is the rebirth of the Sun and marks the pendulum shift back towards light. The power of Winter Solstice anchors us to the darkest and shortest day of the year and reminds us to go slower, look within, and reflect. We will write gratitudes and reflections for the past year and set intentions for the new year to come, as well as make herbal sachets for prosperity to take home!
