As a busy professional the importance of maximising your mental and physical (mind-body) performance is paramount to keeping your edge. 'Stress management' has become a common phrase in the business world and beyond. Unfortunately most approaches to stress management miss the bull's eye when it comes to working out precisely what is going on and what needs to be done when an individual is in stress overwhelm. The reason for this is that traditional approaches to stress management largely fail to take a sophisticated mind-body approach in understanding stress, all but ignoring the critical role of minerals in regulating the stress response. 

 In this presentation you will be introduced to a simple yet sophisticated model for understanding the human stress response and ways in which the stress response predictably malfunctions. The presentation will also look at the critical role of minerals such as magnesium in regulating the stress response, as well as the cutting edge laboratory test that can assess the stress and energy profile of individuals through an assessment of their unique mineral profile.
