The Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) presents the next event in its series of public nutritional medicine education lectures – MedEd 4 Everyone.

In this program, Become a Well Woman, our presenters will provide a guide to women’s health, exploring the underlying factors that impact women specifically, from fatigue and hormone balance, to the mental load that women carry and how this impacts on sleep and mental health. The information presented at this event will appeal to women aged in their mid-30’s and beyond.  You will hear practical lifestyle and dietary recommendations and strategies that support long-term health and wellbeing.  Our health professionals will discuss targeted nutritional supplements, and explore the connection between diet, nutrition and health.  After each speaker, there will be time for questions from the audience.


Dr Justin Welsh will share his insights from his extensive and current experience in nutritional and environmental medicine practice and present the bigger picture of how diet, lifestyle and the environment impact your hormonal and overall health.

Dr Anjana Aru – a practicing and passionate integrative GP, Dr Aru will address the ‘mental load of women’ and how this insidious stress can impact on energy levels and wellbeing.

Rhiannon Hardingham – educator, Naturopath and Nutritionist will explore the impact your diet has on the long-term health of your kidneys and bones.

Dr Virochana Kaul  – a highly experienced consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist with over 15-years experience, Dr Kaul will explain bio-identical hormones and why interest in them has grown.

The MC for the afternoon will be Dr Kim Hayes. Dr Hayes is an ACNEM board member and has been working in integrative medicine for many years. She has a strong clinical interest in mental health, and the health of adolescents and children.
