APA Webinar ~ Health is a Habit
Thu, 15 April 2021. 18:00 – 19:30 BST
APA presents a webinar by Dr. Rob Verkerk and Dr. Vijay Murthy - an exploration of natural health options to optimise individual health.
Dr. Rob Verkerk (Ph.D.) & Dr. Vijay Murthy (Ph.D.) get under the covers of why ‘health is a habit’ and why now is the perfect time to focus less on disease and more on the regeneration of health. They’ll take you through a smorgasbord of therapeutic tools and interventions that can help you individualise your approach. They’ll show why Ayurveda provides the perfect vantage point to help you individualise your approach to health creation.
On their journey, they’ll explain why we need to re-frame how we think about health. How we need to move between micro and macro, and from thinking whole systems, including not only whole-body health but planetary health. Find out how the power to transition an entire nation’s approach to health regeneration is in our hands and how we could help build resilience and sustainable systems of health and care for now and the future based on the ANH’s UK-tailored blueprint for health system sustainability.
Rob and Vijay will also discuss ANH-Intl’s vision of a world where everyone has autonomy over his or her own health, including the freedom to choose natural health approaches to help us manage and optimise our health and resilience, without interference from governments or corporations with different agendas.
