Diets That Feed Cancer, Diets That Starve Cancer
With Angela Wright, BSc, CNP, RNCP
Cancer is becoming more and more prevalent in our society. Current estimates show that 40% of Canadians will develop some form of cancer in their lifetime; 25% of deaths will be caused by cancer. Why is it so hard to get a handle on cancer? As such a multi-factorial disease, there is no one-size fits all diet, but there are some definite choices that do work in our favour of increasing our immune function and decreasing our body’s burden of repair and detox. Join Angela Wright, Lead Certified Nutritional Practitioner at InspireHealth Supportive Cancer Care, to learn about dietary do’s and don’ts to help stack the odds in your favour.
12:00 – 1:30 pm
SIBO: An Overview of Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth And What To Do About It
With Dr Jason Marr, BSc (Hons), ND
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, or SIBO, is the one of the newest digestive dysfunctions and diagnoses in medicine. In this lecture with Naturopathic Doctor Jason Marr you will learn how SIBO is now being addressed by conventional and holistic, integrative clinicians, and the number one reason why SIBO has exploded in prevalence as the real reason underlying IBS-like cases is because of this little dietary habit that health care practitioners have gotten wrong for decades.
2:00 – 3:30 pm
Understanding Our Neuroendocrinology To Live More Balanced, Purpose-Driven Lives In Optimal Health
With Sikandar Khan, MD (AM), CNP
The brain is considered the most complex and complicated system in the Universe. Made of a hundred billion neurones (nerve cells) and a thousand billion connections, it sits locked up in the dark confines of the human skull, and yet is the gate way to coordinating the external world to the internal, or vice versa. In this lecture we shall look at how the brain, in conjunction with the endocrine system (the hormonal system) works in sync to produce our thoughts, feelings, emotions, perceptions of self and of the world around us. We shall also explore if the brain (neuro endocrine system) is in charge of us, or can we be in charge of ourselves, and how to harness the potential of this complex system, to re-program our thoughts, feelings and perceptions, so that we can have conscious, connected, healthy and intimate relations with ourselves and others.
Join Fundamentals of Nutrition and Nutritional Symptomatology instructor Sikandar Khan, as he delves deep into our Neuroendocrinology to help us understand how we can work with our physiology to live more balanced, purpose-driven lives in optimal health.
