The endocrine system governs all body functions, and is the most important control system in the bodymind. Today, people have more hormonal imbalance than any population at any time in human history. The combined, cumulative and negative effects of chemical toxicity, overmedication, radiation exposure, vaccinations, and genetically-modified foods are devastating. Endocrine-related conditions are spreading at an alarming rate, and include diabetes and pre-diabetes (#1), hypothyroid (#2), obesity, cardiovascular disease, infertility, insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome.
Clinicians who cannot confidently work in these areas are simply not fully-equipped to help the modern patient. The good news is that a wholistic approach to endocrine care, which includes diet, exercise, nutritional and herbal support, can quickly improve hormonal health, change your patients’ lives for the better, and prevent future illness. Natural endocrine support is a key to creating lasting, whole-being change for you, your family and patients. In this essential seminar, you will learn how to assess and support three of the most important aspects of the endocrine system: thyroid, adrenals and blood sugar.
Mastering the endocrines is the key to well-being, vitality and resilience. Applying this material, taught by one of the leading presenters in the field of natural medicine and a successful 27-year clinician, will improve your patient care.
In this seminar, you will learn:
1. The three most common mistakes in thyroid assessment
2. Myths and truths about iodine supplementation
3. The best ways to assess thyroid and blood sugar balance
4. Why Body Mass Index is not that important, and its far more useful adjunct
5. A simple and effective diet plan for weight loss, glycemic control and more
6. Why only whole-food supplements are compatible with Chinese medicine
7. The best seven Western botanicals to complement Chinese herbs for these three hormone systems
8. The four keys to patient compliance with your supplementation programs
9. The seven nutritional minerals necessary for the health of these endocrine areas
