Bethany Ugarte, now known as @lilsipper and a gut health enthusiast, once suffered immensely from IBS and intestinal issues. Weighing under 80 lbs at one point, her digestive issues kept snowballing. With test after test, blood work time and time again, and results coming back as "normal," Bethany knew she was not okay. Her body was literally wasting away...all before the age of 25.
Fast forward to when Bethany reconnected with a holistic doctor. They worked together religiously to help 1) clear the yeast & overgrowth and 2) heal her gut. This process was a process -- but a short one compared to everything she had been dealing with. In the end, she healed herself
all from natural, whole foods.
Now 29, she is a full-time blogger, recipe creator, and health enthusiast on Instagram (@lilsipper). With over 300k loyal followers, she helps those suffering with the same issues. Even if you don't suffer from IBS or digestive issues, many people just follow along and enjoy her recipes because they're not only delicious, but they can benefit everyone. Bethany strongly believes the core of your health starts in the gut. She always says, if you want to heal your "_____," you have to heal your gut first!

HW FAQ: What is the Cancellation Policy? We will provide a full refund up to 24 hours in advance of the event. Within 24 hours, we will credit your account which can be used towards payment for a future event. I don’t know anyone, can I come alone? Yes, absolutely! We hope you are never deterred by not having a friend to accompany you. The purpose of these events is to meet like-minded people, and we will kick off every event with a mini icebreaker game to make sure you know at least one friendly face in the crowd.

If you’re running late, we cannot guarantee that all of the on-site brands will have samples and food left, however. People get hungry -- what can we say! What’s in the swag bag?
