THE STORY:

EVENT DATE: October 13-November 2, 2015

 

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead

 

Ready, set...REST & FUNDRAISE! That's what this fundraising challenge is all about.

Starting October 13th all registered participants in Rest for a Cause will embark on 15 minutes of 'rest' practicing a sleep-based meditation techqnique for 21 days and simultaneously raise money for an exciting new documentary film that could impact human and planetary life: A Probiotic Life. 

By donating to this cause you will be supporting a Rest for a Cause participant to be good to themselves (yay self care!)  and you will be good to others by giving money to finish this important film (yes!).

You can DONATE or, if you're not registered but would like to participate, you can REGISTER to set up your own fundraising page and participate in 21 days of a yoga nidra meditation "nap."

 

Why raise money for A Probiotic Life?

What if we had something other than failed exercise routines and self help to explain our behaviors, our weight, or our risk for disease? And what if it had to do with the trillions of organisms living inside us—especially those in the gut?

A Probiotic Life is a documentary film that explores how simple small changes to diet and lifestyle could go a long way to protect, restore and rebalance your gut and how this  can dramatically alter your mental and physical health.

Here are just some of the remarkable stories the documentary filmmakers are following:

  • a doctor with multiple sclerosis who changed her diet, emerged from her wheelchair, and now works full time.
  • a man with Parkinson's whose shift of diet and lifestyle has helped with the symptoms of Parkinson’s.
  • an Amish family living in northern Indiana in a community with remarkably low rates of asthma and allergies.

The implications of people knowing this information are HUGE - it could benefit you and your family but also, potentially impact future generations. For women who are pregnant, knowing this information can impact their baby's health tremendously.

The hot word at the moment in science is "microbiome" - these are the trillions of organisms that make up the gut. Change your microbiome, change your LIFE. Everyday more scientists are finding this to be true. This life-changing science and down-to-earth everyday changes you can make to your microbiome is exactly what the A Probiotic Life documentary will uncover. 

Imagine, once this film is complete, being able to show this film to your friends and family to introduce a new, healthier way of being in the world. Right now we don't have a 'self help film' on this topic - and that's why your help is needed.

Any amount you can donate will make a difference. Thank you!
