Come and learn about using Maca to treat chronic stress, hormonal imbalances, fatigue and mental health.
Maca is a sacred medicinal root from the Andes of Peru that has been used to treat and manage stress for centuries. There are 15 different combinations of Maca possible to use for different conditions, including 5 preparations and 3 colours of the roots. In this workshop we will take you through the traditional methods of matching your maca to your symptoms using maca to treat and manage different health conditions.
We will also be linking science to tradition explaining the bio-chemical pathways behind its modes of action. We will discuss the frequently asked questions regarding the use of maca in cancer (including breast cancer), thyroid dysfunction, heart disease, diabetes and more. Finally we will be presenting case studies of various patients treated with maca for a range of conditions and clinical outcomes. (chronic fatigue, menopause/PMS, mental health and addiction).
