Course Overview

The seasonal rhythms of nature have a very direct effect on our health. Having a conscious understanding of these seasonal and environmental effects adds additional support to your treatments. Living in harmony with our outer environment during the seasons will positively impact long-term health benefits. In addition, we have our own seasons of life that must be taken into consideration as we move through our life cycle. This recorded lecture will give an overview of mapping these two intersecting cycles and treatment strategies to promote healthy longevity of our patients.
