The newly formed Ancestral Health Society of NZ is having its very first day long conference in Christchurch on the 29th June
New Zealand has a growing number of health professionals who use evidence based ancestral health principals with their clients, often with extraordinary results.
The Ancestral Health Society was formed to bring together health professionals, researchers and other passionate people who subscribe to ancestral health and nutrition principals, in order to foster interdisciplinary collaboration.
The very first conference is taking place in Christchurch, home of Jamie Scott (nutritionist), and Dr Anastasia Boulais, who formed the society.
There is a fantastic line-up of speakers, with some of the top health professionals in the country presenting, including Dr Mikki Williden (AUT lecturer and researcher) and Jamie Scott, both of whom will be presenting at the 2014 Ancestral Health Symposium in San Francisco later this year, also Dr Anastasia Boulais whose presentation on sunlight remains one of the most viewed presentations from the 2013 Ancestral Health Symposium in Atlanta.
I’ll be there also presenting on an ancestral diet for auto-immune disease, an area that I am passionate about. Paleo eating has been instrumental in helping me keep healthy and symptom free despite having auto-immune issues (joints and thyroid). It is an area I am researching for my post graduate study.
Only $49.00. Book here: Tickets Ancestral Health Conference
