  • Someone who values the latest cutting edge scientific information from world experts to rapidly improve health (eg. pre-diabetes, diabetes, anxiety, depression, arthritic pain, etc.)

  • Someone who recognises that if you spent more time being active each day you would be less stressed, more optimistic and healthier.

What Will I Learn?

  • How Dr Rangan Chatterjee has revolutionised health in the UK with his “4 Pillars of Health” approach ( eating ,exercise, sleep and stress management)
