SESSION ONE: THE MIND MATRIX – how to reclaim your brain

We are living in space-age times with stone age minds and multi-national companies, from Coca Cola to Costa, Apple to Facebook, have learnt how to get you hooked – literally neurochemically addicted to consuming their products. It parallels the increase in depression, insomnia, suicide and psych drug prescriptions. It’s all to do with the brain’s dopamine-based ‘reward’ system.

Our brains have literally been hijacked and the symptoms of depression, anxiety, insomnia, cravings, loss of control and constant cravings are the direct consequences of an intended addiction. Patrick Holford will show you how to unaddict your client’s brain, regain control, and claim our natural connection (which is based on serotonin and melatonin) with consequent contentment, clarity of mind and purpose and ability to sleep like a baby and wake up fully charged and refreshed.

SESSION TWO: You are Hybrid

Fat or carbs, plant-based or meat? It’s no wonder everyone’s confused. Yet, we are designed to run on either carbs/glucose or fat/ketones. We are hybrid. Alternating between the two is the hottest health secret – because something magical happens when we switch between a ‘slow’ carb and a high fat diet: it sets up a healthy cycle of new cell growth and repair triggering autophagy and body fat is burnt more efficiently, mimicking the natural cycle of feast and famine. Switching regularly between Slow Carbs and High Fat is like nutritional yoga. You become ‘carb adapted’ – craving less sweet foods, and ‘fat adapted’ – able to burn and derive energy efficiently from fat. Find out how to apply this to your clients.
