Solving the mystery of hormones, body composition, health & disease

A Talk by Dr Cam McDonald

Did you know that exercise and/or protein aren’t the driving factors in muscle growth. Did you know that all of the diseases and states of optimal health are rarely primarily influenced by nutrition and exercise? Your clients’ bodies change based on the entire environment around them. Protein, carbs, HIIT training, weights all stimulate genes which in turn promote hormonal change, it is these hormones that actually create the change. However, the wrong weather, social environment, career choice, mindset, menstrual cycle, age or disease state dramatically change these hormones and can ruin all the perfect movement and nutrition programming you have them working through. And, did you know that every individual needs a slightly different hormonal balance to achieve THEIR best result. This session will help you understand why the whole picture is necessary if you want consistent results that your clients truly value, and provide you the confidence to be certain in your promise of delivering to each and everyone of them.
