The traditional view of adipose tissue (body fat) as an inert energy storage depot has changed over recent years to see adipose tissue as a complex, essential, and highly active metabolic and endocrine organ.
Adipose tissue not only responds to afferent signals from traditional hormone systems and the central nervous system but also expresses and secretes factors with important endocrine functions.
Despite the complexity of hormones, there are some generalities that can be made, and these can be directly observed by body shape and where fat is stored.
Metabolic BioMarkers covers 12 key areas affecting body fat, hormones and metabolic function.
This includes the hormonal correlations of specific BioMarkers with a focus on insulin, cortisol, estrogen, testosterone and inflammation.
You will gain strong foundation from both classroom instruction and practical application, along with being able to confidently apply the course material immediately in your own clinic.

Metabolic BioMarkers (4 days)
Dates: 29th – 30th April & 13 – 14th May 2017
Peninsula Kinesiology & Natural Medicine
3/15 Bay Road, Mt Martha, Victoria
Time: 9am – 5pm
Pre-requisites: Five Element BioEnergetics
Metabolic BioMarkers is accredited with the Australian Kinesiology Association for 40 hours of ‘Category B’ study. A certificate of proficiency is awarded on successful completion of the course assessments (practical, case studies, multiple choice and short answer exam).
This course is the first to offer a complete framework for working directly with the adipose tissue (fat cells) as an endocrine organ. It is a culmination of well over a decade of clinical practice and research to create something from the ground up that will teach kinesiologists how to work with key elements affecting body fat, hormones and metabolic function.
At present each course requires you attend the scheduled 4-day program.
Yes. Five Element BioEnergetics is a pre-requisite for this course.
We also highly recommend our custom NeuroEndocrine Test Kit that includes everything you need to work with the brain, hormones, glands and body fat distribution covered in the course. This is available to purchase during the course.
Yes. In addition to the practical assessment (part of day 4) there is also 5 case studies, multiple choice and short answer assessments (open book) to be competed. A 75% pass mark required for all assessments to be deemed competent and awarded certification.
