ANP Naturopathic Summit (London)
Women’s Health & Hormones
Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th of July, 2021
Leah Hechtman (Aus)
Lara Briden (NZ)
Jill Davies (UK)
Hormone imbalances are becoming increasingly common in the modern world. While even the slightest disruption can affect endocrine health, the compounded effects of sustained emotional stress, exposure to xenobiotics, poor diet, disrupted sleep and genetic factors can often result in a complex and intractable state.
Under the theme of Women’s Health and Hormones, ANP are flying in two-leading naturopathic educators in this important area to unravel the complexities and causes of endocrine disorders. Throughout this 2-day event, we will provide clinic-focused strategies and practical tools for even the most complex cases seen in women’s health.
