In this webinar, Chris will be discussing the Hypothalamus and its function within the human body.

This booking is intended for practitioners to view the webinar online.

If you are a Platinum Practitioner please call us or email to purchase.



Where nerves, hormones, meridians and cranials all converge. When we are dehydrated it makes us thirsty and tells our kidneys not to waste water but go concentrate our urine. When we are ill, it raises our body temperature generating a fever that kills off infections. When our blood sugar is low it tells us to eat and when our stomach is full to stop. It determines the shape of our bodies, how tall we will grow, how fat we will be and where our fat and muscle will grow. When we are frightened or anxious or stressed it determines whether we will set our teeth, stiffen our sinews, freeze or fight or flee. The rhythm of days and of seasons are beaten by its drums and we grow and attain puberty under its tutelage. And led by the hypothalamus we preen and woo, and the sap rises in our loins, a man produces sperm and, in a woman, the woman’s ovarian cycle turns, we court and mate and bond. A woman conceives and her body changes to the needs of the child within, and she gives birth and produces milk and she loves and nurtures her children. Be amongst the first to challenge and treat The Chairman of the Board.

In the centre of the brain the hypothalamus lies vastly unappreciated. Part neurological tissue and part endocrine tissue, the hypothalamus is largely ignored by practitioners as just a primitive brain structure. Endocrinologists pay it little attention because they cannot measure its hormones but with our skills in muscle testing we are able to accurately access each of the various nuclei, understand their role and assess for their functionality.
The Hypothalamus orchestrates:

The entire endocrine system
The neurological system including the brain, heart and gut
The immune system
The weight set point
The metabolism
The heart and respiratory rate
The temperature control
The sleep cycles
The energy output
The sex drive
Skin colour
Stress response

You will learn how to test for imbalances, nutrients to support, simple cranial adjustments, the role of the limbic system and how the meridian system interacts with the various nuclei. Truly where east meets west. You will also learn how to reset the various hypothalamic outputs. We look forward to you joining us on Saturday 19th June at 10am.
