- Tara Nelson's Level 1 Practitioner 6 week Thyroid Course
- Tara Nelson's Clinical Mentoring for Thyroid Cases
After many years of seeing primarily thyroid conditions in her clinic, Tara a West Australian-based naturopath with over 24 years of clinical experience went into researching for herself and further education in order to improve her clinical outcomes in her complex thyroid patients.
Tara has developed a six-week online practitioner thyroid training program to further educate practitioners in thyroid health, and thyroid case mentoring for practitioners, a practitioner affiliate program and runs an online thyroid recovery program. Tara has completed extra studies in the AIP dietary and lifestyle approach, which she utilises with many of her thyroid and other autoimmune patients.
Tara is on a mission to bring awareness and education to the public and practitioner community alike, about the importance of thyroid health on a deeper level.
I can not recommend Tara’s thyroid training program enough. I am in the midst of doing the program now and considering the increasing amount of individuals I see with compromised thyroid function in clinic, I have found Tara’s training of such value and it has really sharpened my saw in this area of health. To learn more about the program head on over to the show notes above.
