Our Next Workshop

Optimal Arteries: Heart & Brain Health

17 May, Friday 5:30-7:00.

Our Heart and Arteries are what we eat

The buildup of fatty deposits in the arteries our heart and brain are silent killers. Cholesterol have a role to play, but one-half of the people who have a heart attack have normal cholesterol levels. We now recognize the importance of genetics, lifestyle, environmental and nutritional factors in causing blocked arteries, and are able to look beyond our traditional understanding of cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugars with modern diagnostics.

This workshop explores underlying drivers that promote artery hardening and blockage, and how we can use food and nutrients to optimize the health of our arteries and overall wellness; and how to optimise health and wellness with functional food-based solutions.

Food As Medicine Primer

These are Our Speakers

Our Speakers include Doctors and Allied-healthcare practitioners dedicated to bridging traditional medical wisdom and latest scientific advances; providing useful practical tips, functional nutritional strategies and creative solutions for you and your family.

Over the last decades, there had been a steady rise in chronic illnesses and suboptimal health. Root cause analysis often reveals underlying nutrition and lifestyle drivers as well as abnormal composition of gut microbiome. We invite you to our series of Food As Medicine workshops designed to optimise wellness with functional foods and nutrition-based solutions.
