An Excerpt From IHN's Fermentation Foundations Con Ed Course!

On Wednesday, October 20, IHN hosted a 1 hour webinar with Kathrin Brunner, as she brought us to her kitchen to learn how to ferment “Lime Curtido Kraut” and take an in-depth look at the deeply therapeutic benefits of fermented foods. While fermentation has gained in popularity over the years, there are many misconceptions about how they impact our microbiomes and are used to improve health. Knowing which type of ferment would benefit which type of condition, is essential to recommending them successfully in clinical practice.

“A thriving plant always has a substantial root system. I believe having a strong foundation of the human body and physiological processes will allow my students to critically think through problem-solving when working with clients in the real world.”
We asked Larissa what she loves about IHN and teaching her course: 
"The best part about teaching is being a part of that moment when it clicks. It’s rewarding to watch students have a light bulb moment where knowledge becomes a deeper form of understanding.

What do I love about IHN? The students! The eagerness to learn and engagement in class is refreshing."
Teaching at IHN since 2021
Vancouver Campus
Currently Teaching: Nutritional Pathology and Human Anatomy & Physiology

Leaves contribute to a healthy planet by helping pollinators like butterflies and bees. In an October 20, 2021 article (2 minute read), David Suzuki writes about how leaves send nutrients back into the soil through the process of photosynthesis. He writes, “[This] is the tree’s cycle of life: nutrients from fallen leaves are absorbed into the roots and help produce buds and leaves again next spring.” By leaving leaves alone, not only will you provide nutrients to our critter friends like chipmunks, woolly bear caterpillars, and the queen bumblebee, but this increases atmospheric oxygen levels.

The aubergine originated in Sri Lanka and India but was named after a Greek city when it was brought to Europe in 325BC. In North America, it is known as the eggplant, named for its egg shape. Often misunderstood, aubergine belongs to the nightshade family, is classified as a fruit, but eaten as a vegetable. It comes in a variety of colours, which change when the fruit is ripe. It is an excellent source of dietary fibre, vitamin B1, B6, potassium, copper, magnesium, and manganese. We recommend this Sticky Roasted Aubergine with Harissa Drizzle by IHN graduate Lucy Jennings.
