10 Module Online Webinar Series

Obesity may be the most fundamental health problem of our time. People are getting larger and they want solutions they don’t currently have.

This disease has massive effects on someones quality and duration of life. Among people who have never smoked, the risk of death is increased by 20% to 40% in the overweight, and by 100% to 200% in the obese compared to those of normal weight. With the numbers of obese adults and children still skyrocketing, this is a problem we need to have confidence tackling.

This program includes two BONUS 9th and 10th classes. One with Dr Bonnie Nedrow on ketogenesis for fat loss and another with Dr Paul Epstein on mindfulness for weight loss.

You will be learning the latest on:

  • Eating behaviours
  • Stress and obesity
  • Toxicology of obesity
  • The microbiome and fat regulation
  • Metabolism and fat mass
  • Exercise for body composition
  • Endocrine control of fat mass
  • Ketosis and keto-adaptation and much more

There is an opportunity to become skilled and recognised as a reliable fat loss clinician. People have few options and a comprehensive, individualised natural program has proven to be successful.

High fat mass impacts most of the serious conditions we see today;

  • Mental health, especially depression
  • Diabetes
  • Many cancers
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension
  • Surgical outcomes
  • Chronic pain
  • Several liver diseases
  • Gall bladder disease
  • Most inflammatory conditions
  • Autoimmunity
  • Asthma
  • Infertility, including PCOS
  • Osteoarthritis and many more
