How Low Libido, Belly Fat, and Brain Fog in the 40’s are Risk Factors for Osteoporosis, Cancer, Alzheimer’s and Heart Diseases. What Fitness Professionals, Physiotherapists, and Nutritionists Can Do to Help Women in Their 40’s Live Vibrantly for The Decades Ahead


In this pre-summit course, Dr. Jessica Drummond, DCN, CCN, PT, integrative women’s health expert, clinical nutritionist, and physiotherapist will educate the attendees on using nutrition, fitness, movement, and lifestyle medicine recommendations for whole woman’s health in perimenopause. Women in perimenopause commonly present with challenges such as hot flashes, insomnia, exhaustion, low libido, bone loss, anxiety, depression, brain fog, hair loss, and weight loss resistance. These symptoms are bothersome for women of this age group, and they are red flags for more severe disease states to present 5-10 years later. While the medical options to resolve these vague, frustrating, and bothersome symptoms are limited, lifestyle strategies are simple, low cost, and highly effective for both resolving the symptoms and preventing later serious cardiometabolic, bone, and brain health concerns.

Presenter – Antony Lo – The Physio Detective. Antony is an APA Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist who has a special interest at the junction between Sports, Musculoskeletal and Womens Health problems. He presents around the world on these topics educating health and fitness professionals and the public on how to progress patients with women’s/pelvic health problems beyond low level exercise.
In this seminar, Antony Lo, The Physio Detective, will cover the following topics in a practical way:
1. Ante Natal Exercise
2. Post Natal Exercise
3. Diastasis Rectus Abdominis
4. Incontinence
5. Pelvic Organ Prolapse
6. Neuromusculoskeletal pain
7. Modifying exercises to suit each client
You will learn how to:
1. Assess what your clients can and can’t do and how to lease with their healthcare providers so they can keep coming to your training sessions
2. Learn how to modify exercises for one-on-one and group sessions so your clients can participate in your classes
3. Learn how to help people with pain and injuries remain in your classes and help them get better
4. Learn about the powerful effect language has on your clients
5. See how Antony helps people with the above conditions.
Participants will be able to walk away from this seminar with the confidence to help people who have had pain, problems and symptoms for many years and how to impact their lives positively using the principles Antony has learnt and distilled over 20 years of clinical practice.
This is the fast-track way of learning how Antony does most of his physiotherapy work…without actually needing to be a physiotherapist (and within your scope of practice as a fitness professional!)
Please come prepared to do physical exercise with appropriate clothing. Also think about  exercises you find difficult to modify so we can go through them during the seminar. If you have any potential patients you would like Antony to use as a model, please contact Antony at
