About this course

A fundamental function of the human body is to maintain equilibrium. We are constantly balancing blood flow, neural tone, hormone levels and many, many other physiological processes. Our ability to regulate is a strong determinant of our health. It is a measure of our metabolic resilience. When our internal resilience falters we become ill.

Professor Marc Cohen has been closely studying how we can improve our adaptive function. His term Extreme Wellness encompasses clinical practices that we can use to strengthen our regulatory processes. This fascinating discussion will give your some practical ideas and strategies that you can use with your patients in a wide range of conditions, and also in your patients who are healthy and would like to stay that way.
