Ancestral Health Symposium

The Ancestral Health Society of New Zealand (AHSNZ) are presenting an International Symposium on 20-22 October, on the shores of the beautiful Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown, New Zealand. 

A core aim of The Ancestral Health Society of New Zealand is to promote research and disseminate knowledge relevant to the health, environmental, and economic benefits of an ancestral lifestyle, where human evolutionary biology forms a starting point for such inquiries. A biennial symposium is held, with speakers from around the globe invitedto share their ideas and perspectives. 

With speakers coming from Europe, UK, USA, Canada, and Australia, as well as plenty of home-grown New Zealand talent, this a truly international event. Presenters will cover a range of topics, including nutrition, medicine, psychology, movement and physical activity, including theory, and in some cases, practical application, discussing the evolutionary origins of disease, modern biological mismatches, and how the knowledge of the past might inform us on both the problems of present, and those of the future.
