An independent society by Health practitioners, for Health Practitioners

Health practitioners with an interest in metabolic health can now reach out to the newly formed independent Australasian Metabolic Health Society.

The Australasian Metabolic Health Society (AMHS) supports Australian, New Zealand and Asia Pacific health practitioners to develop knowledge and competence around nutritional therapy approaches for metabolic health.

Evidenced-based Nutritional Therapies

The AMHS is the sister organisation to the US Society of Metabolic Health Practitioners. Both non-profit organisations share a mission of furthering evidence-based nutritional therapies – with a focus on carbohydrate restriction and ketogenic diet therapies. 

The AMHS is proudly free of corporate sponsorship from pharmaceutical, supplement and commercial food companies. The society is delivering education, resources, training, online and in-person events, and advocacy for metabolic health practitioners.  It is also the first Australasian organisation to integrate the full spectrum of therapeutic low carbohydrate therapies for managing disease and optimising metabolic health. Metabolic health is defined as having blood sugar, waist circumference, blood pressure, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and triglycerides within a healthy range.

EVENT: AMHS Low Carb Foundations – Doctors Course 

Register for the AMHS one-day low-carbohydrate therapies course for doctors, taking place in Melbourne, on the 16th of March 2024.

The course provides doctors, from any speciality, with a deeper understanding and application of low-carb dietary approaches, including ketogenic diets. 

Expert speakers will share their knowledge and experience, providing a solid foundation in this rapidly growing field. Learn practical skills to integrate this therapy into your own clinical practice.
