will focus on the philosophies and lifestyle practices that will help us to build the health of the future generations.
Including Pre-conceptive health factors, natural childbirth and Nature Cure life practices for reaching ones full potential.
The afternoon lecture will focus on the care and nurturing required in the early years following birth. Entitled;
'The nature cure management of childhood illnesses and acute crises as a developmental pathway to health – a personal experience'
Being the time in our lives of greatest vitality and reactivity to environmental and hereditary toxicity, the support of 'acute crises' without suppression can lead the child (or adult) to an improved state of health. Alex will share his personal experiences gained from his family life raising 2 children, as well as his Osteopathic and Nature Cure clinic, that will cover a range of acute childhood illnesses.
The lectures will be interspersed with a range of movement and self development practices, as well as hands on practical work for helping patients reach their health potential. Please bring a yoga mat, cushion and blanket.
Born to Principal Dancers of the Royal Ballet, Alex grew up with osteopathy playing a prominent role in the maintenance of his family’s general health. This heavily influenced his early desire to become an osteopath, subsequently attaining a First class Honours degree in 2003 from the British School of Osteopathy and Diploma in Classical Osteopathy in 2006.
Following the death of his father to Pancreatic cancer in 2007, Alex has been continually striving to further his understanding of health and the causes of disease. From 2009 he pursued in-depth study of Nature Cure, Natural Hygiene and Biogenic Living with his mentor, John Fielder at the Academy of Natural Living in Australia. Qualifying as a Naturopath and lifestyle consultant in 2017.
Alex runs his practice in Chiswick, West London and in Stroud, Gloucestershire.
