Auckland Seminar 2024 – Unraveling Chronic Conditions

April 7 @ 8:00 am - 5:30 pm

This intensive Face-to-face offers both new and experienced HTMA practitioners evidence-based, practical knowledge and the resources to provide bio-individualised therapy for improved outcomes, especially for patients with complex chronic conditions.

HTMA provides deeper insight into patient stress, energy production, adrenal and thyroid efficiency, cognitive function, digestive dysfunction, mitochondrial health, inflammation, blood sugar management, and the effect of long-term therapeutics.

Last year’s seminar series was a great success, receiving 5-star reviews from doctors, naturopaths, herbalists, nutritionists, chiropractors, sports therapists, dentists and veterinarians.

Assess intracellular mineral levels, understand mineral balancing and metabolic typing, utilise the ratios for greater insight into nutritional requirements, unravel drivers of chronic health conditions, importance of toxic element assessment in health appraisals, utilise InterClinical Resources for simplified report analysis.
