Event Details

Under the theme of Influences on Hormone Health: Diet, Genes and Environment, This year's Symposium will be hosting world-leading researchers in this important area in order to unravel the nexus of influences and causes of endocrine disorders. Throughout our three-day masterclass, The symposium will aim to workshop and provide effective treatment strategies for even the most complex cases.

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.
