Lesson series

The Brain Series

The brain is a complex organ involved in crucial biological functions, including cognition, mental and emotional processing, but also the maintenance of normal behaviour and social cognition. 

Understanding and supporting brain health is an important aspect of naturopathic practice. Several neurological signs and symptoms may cause devastating impacts for those affected and may lead to disorders associated with poor brain function.

The Brain Series is a 5-week course that covers important aspects of brain health, delivered by leading practitioners and doctors. Sessions will be hosted online, and will then be made available as a recording after each session has ended.
