A 5-week webinar seminar for NTI students and graduates

Tuesdays 7:30pm -8:30pm MST, Sept 29-Oct 27, 2020

We all know that chronic stress is a problem in our society. It is one of the leading causative factors for cardiovascular disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune diseases and various gastrointestinal concerns. If stress or trauma is not properly dealt with, it can lead to disease pathology in the individual. Much of the time, diseases induced by stress are considered idiopathic by the medical community. As a result, more and more individuals are looking for natural solutions to help manage their concerns which often are not properly addressed by modern medicine. Hypothalamic-pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis dysfunction is commonly present in individuals post trauma and resulting from prolonged stress.

Adaptogens include a class of herbs shown to support the HPA axis. As a result, they help moderate the stress response so the body is supported in dealing with everyday stressors as well as in recovery from prolonged stress or trauma. Adaptogens are extremely safe to use and not only help restore normalized function of the HPA axis but also aid the fatigued body by increasing energy and stamina, improving the impaired circadian rhythm, encouraging a positive mentality and balancing out stress hormone secretion. This webinar is specifically targeted for holistic nutrition professionals. It will discuss the relationship between adaptogens and their supportive function in the human stress response, the individual roles played by the top adaptogenic herbs, as well as how they can be properly integrated into a clinical nutrition practice.

Join us for this live 5-part webinar event.  It will not be recorded so if you want to learn about the best-practice ways to use adaptogenic herbs in your own life and those of your clients, sign up now. Handouts will be provided the first day of the seminar series.

Your guide for this adaptogen seminar is Megan Grover.  Megan is a long-time instructor at NTI, currently teaching a variety of courses.  She received a Master of Medical Science in Human Nutrition from the University of Sheffield in England.  Megan has traveled and roamed much of the globe where she has explored the healing traditions.  She is passionate about educating individuals regarding their health and looking at the body from a holistic approach, understanding that all aspects are integrated.  Megan’s love for using herbs as a compliment to nutrition protocols came from her training at Herbalism Roots in Denver, and since then she has continued to mainly focus on adaptogenic herbs and their clinical use for imbalanced HPA axis dysfunction.
