CENTRAL Highlanders will be a lot happier after Dr Sandra Cabot flies into Emerald.

The leading nutritional medicine expert will give seminars at the Harvest Life Church next week, explaining how a healthy liver can make a happy person.

"The liver is the metabolic furnace of the body," Dr Cabot said.

"It produces the energy to keep you alive... It has a lot to do with moods as well."

Dr Cabot pioneered the nutritional medicine movement in Australia, focusing on the virtue of bio identical medicines when building and sustaining healthy lives.

She said the lack of knowledge about nutritional medicines revealed through audience participation at her many seminars conducted around the country was concerning, and inspired her dedication to spreading the value of using complementary therapies.

"I do a lot of seminars and I usually ask the audience questions (such as) how many know what their vitamin D level is," Dr Cabot said.

"They wouldn't have a clue.

"We focus a lot on how to have a strong immune system through nutrition and diet, how to improve (their) liver and gut (health)."

Dr Cabot has spread her message to the developing world, having worked in tuberculosis wards of women's hospitals in India in the mid 1980s.

"I was interested in diseases," said the passionate doctor, who also does regular work for the Angel Flight charity in her capacity as both doctor and pilot.

"It was a combination of wanting to help out and give back, but also just finding it so interesting."

Dr Cabot will be joined by naturopath Victoria Taylor at the Harvest Life Church on Wednesday and Thursday for two seminars.

Tickets are $20 each and are available from Pharmacy First, the sponsors of the event. For bookings, phone 4982 1164 or email emerald@ pharmacyfirst.net.au.

Health consultations are available for $65.
