Although live education is back and more exciting than ever, we know how well-received online IHCAN education has been over the past 18 months, so that’s why it’s here to stay!

We’ve got world-class speakers and, thanks to a bespoke bit of techno-wizardry, you’ll enjoy a virtual expo featuring specialist practitioner suppliers as well as short break-out sessions and online networking.

How is it different to the IHCAN Conference Webinars?
 

Using a brand new, bespoke, virtual conference and expo platform, the IHCAN Conferences Virtual Event is a whole-day event with multiple live sessions and a virtual exhibition – bringing the “in-person” conference experience direct to your device.

How does it work?

 

We’re using a bespoke virtual conference and expo platform – you don’t need to  download any additional software and it will work on every device.

It works best on Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox and we recommend you make sure your browser is up-to-date.

Alternatively, for mobile there’s a simply app to download.

We’ll send you access details two weeks before the event.

‘The Hateful (or Grateful) 8: the subcellular pathologies that belie chronic disease’

Lifespan (years of life) and healthspan (years of disease-free life) continue to decline due to increases in chronic diseases. Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, cardiovascular disease, cancer, dementia, fatty liver disease – these chronic diseases have treatments, but they do not have cures. Specific medications may mitigate the symptoms, but not the disease itself. The reason is that these “diseases” are not the real disease. Rather, they are the manifestations of eight underlying subcellular pathologies. These pathologies — glycation, oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, insulin resistance, membrane instability, inflammation, methylation, autophagy — are common to chronic disease. However, there are no medications that effectively deal with any of them. Rather, changes in food consumption has the power to mitigate each of these pathologies to increase both lifespan and healthspan.

Learning Objectives:

  1. To demonstrate that chronic diseases therapy only treats symptoms, not the actual disease process
  2. To delineate the eight subcellular pathologies that belie all chronic disease, and how they contribute to morbidity and mortality
  3. To show that these subcellular pathologies are foodable but not druggable
About Robert H. Lustig, M.D., M.S.L.

Robert H. Lustig, M.D., M.S.L. is Professor emeritus of Pediatrics, Division of Endocrinology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). He specializes in the field of neuroendocrinology, with an emphasis on the regulation of energy balance by the central nervous system. His research and clinical practice has focused on childhood obesity and diabetes. Dr. Lustig holds a Bachelor’s in Science from MIT, a Doctorate in Medicine from Cornell University. Medical College, and a Master’s of Studies in Law from U.C. Hastings College of the Law.

Dr. Lustig has fostered a global discussion of metabolic health and nutrition, exposing some of the leading myths that underlie the current pandemic of diet-related disease. He believes the food business, by pushing processed food loaded with sugar, has hacked our bodies and minds to pursue pleasure instead of happiness; fostering today’s epidemics of addiction and depression. Yet by focusing on real food, we can beat the odds against sugar, processed food, obesity, and disease.

‘Covid-19: What can we learn from genetics?’

Anne will be discussing what the evidence tells us about how Covid-19 manifests in the body. We will explore possible single nucleotide polymorphisms associated with or affected by Covid-19 and what doctors are now calling long covid.

This will be followed by how the practitioner might consider working around the genes to gain an advantage for the client. This presentation will also include some facets of what we know from ancient medicinal arts such as how our emotions might affect the outcome in the long Covid-19 clients.
