It is with great delight that we welcome to UK for the first time, starting in Manchester, the expert writer on Women's Health and frequent lecturer internationally on hormones, thyroid disorders and Celiac Disease, Dr. Carrie Jones
The HPA axis is a complicated set of relationships and signals that exist between the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland and the adrenals. This relationship is an absolutely indispensable part of our existence. It’s a complicated subject, and the way that the adrenals, the pituitary gland, and hypothalamus interact with each other has been the subject of considerable research.
Carrie, with her expert knowledge will not only unravel the complexities it holds, but also clearly and concisely explain the intricacies of each hormone, how they vary, where they can be found and the tools suitable for effective intervention and support
This is a perfect event and should not be missed for any Health and Fitness Professional or student of the same.
