Combining 70 years of herbal and mineral therapy expertise, the workshop will include treatment strategies, ‘clinical pearls’ and encourage case study discussion.
This workshop will also enable you to confidently prescribe mineral therapy as a standalone therapy and/or to be used adjunctively with herbs to support a range of conditions.
