PRIORITISING METABOLIC FUNCTIONS

A foundation for resilience in a COVID world

Chronic disease is characterized by a gradual diminishing of the metabolic reserves that keep cells and tissues resilient against wear and dysfunction. Maintaining, and especially rebuilding, these reserves require that each system is working in optimal synchrony- something that cannot be accomplished without circadian co-ordination.

Over the 3 parts our expert presenters will discuss the latest research, nutritional and lifestyle-based strategies including clinical and testing protocols, to create resilience for your vulnerable patients. Presented by two highly respected experts in their fields: 

Internationally recognised nutritional supplements and lifestyle medicine expert Dr Thomas Guilliams and repected Australian nutritional biochemist and clinical nutritionist Dr Rhona Creegan.
