Although live education is “paused” for 2020, we have doubled our efforts on organising online education so you can keep up-to-date during these challenging times.

We know you’ve missed our one-day conferences and you’re ready for something more in-depth than a quick one-hour webinar. That’s why we’re delighted to announce “Building Immunity and Resilience”, a full day of education in typical IHCAN Conference style – but virtual.

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.

For the full schedule, see below, or click here to download a PDF.

 

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.

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

What exhibitors will be featured?

 

Demand for “stands” is high and we’re adding new companies as fast as we can organise virtual space, so keep checking back, but some of the suppliers confirmed so far include:

Pure Encapsulations – Platinum Sponsor
Bio-Kult – Diamond Sponsor
Nutri-Link – Gold sponsor
Vega Nutritionals – Gold sponsor
Kinetic Enterprises

They’re all showcasing their new products, latest research and show-only offers.

‘Resilience: Where the mind and body converge’
Alex Manos BSc MSc NASM IFMCP

Alex will be exploring how supporting emotional, mental, and spiritual resilience are effective ways to enhance physical resilience.

Alex aims to connect the dots, and will be bringing together a wide range of topics ranging from psychoneuroimmunology, NLP, and positive psychology to visualisations, kindness, meditation, and even flow states and psychedelics to help us understand how the mind can influence the body. What’s happening during these activities that can explain their healing power?

This talk will include practical and simple techniques that you can use yourself or with clients to complement more traditional nutritional and integrative medicine interventions, that can stimulate our innate capacity to heal.

‘Key Features of the Functional Immunology Roadmap’
Samuel Yanuck, DC, FACFN, FIAMA

The first session is a walk through the core functional immunology landscape. Attendees will learn:

1. The core navigational elements of functional immunology
2. How to recognise the type of functional immunological imbalance your patient has
3. How to manage complex autoimmune cases
4. How to manage patients who have both autoimmunity and infection
5. How the parts of the picture form a roadmap you can use to navigate any case.

‘Case Applications using the Functional Immunology Roadmap’
Samuel Yanuck, DC, FACFN, FIAMA

The second lecture focuses on case studies. You’ll find out how to use the roadmap as a template for understanding a range of seeming different cases, and you’ll see how you can understand all the cases by applying the parts of the case to the roadmap.

‘Educated Hacking: Scaling the Prevention and Reversal of Cognitive Decline’
Dr Dale Bredesen, MD

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of comorbidities such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, vitamin D deficiency, and others – very similar to what has been observed for Alzheimer’s disease, which itself has become a pandemic, one with far more affected individuals and a much higher mortality rate than COVID-19.

Identifying and addressing the underlying contributors to cognitive decline has provided unprecedented success in prevention and reversal, and not surprisingly, earlier intervention has proven to be preferable to later intervention. With the introduction of many “quantified self” technologies, such as ketone monitoring, heart rate variability analysis, and oxygen saturation assessment, population-based scaling of the prevention and early reversal of cognitive decline is becoming increasingly feasible.

About Dr Dale E. Bredesen, MD

 

Prof Dale E. Bredesen, MD, was the first to publish evidence demonstrating that cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s could be reversed. His nutrition and functional medicine-based protocol was later the subject of the 2017 best-seller The End of Alzheimer’s. Dr Bredesen has been refining the approach ever since; he’s been updating us regularly at IHCAN Conferences, and now has a new book, out in August – The End of Alzheimer’s Program: The First Protocol to Enhance Cognition and Reverse Decline at Any Age. You’ll be among the first in the world to hear his latest  ideas.

Dr Bredesen is internationally recognised as an expert in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. He graduated from Caltech, then earned his MD from Duke University Medical Centre in Durham, North Carolina. He served as chief resident in neurology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) before joining Nobel Laureate Stanley Prusiner’s laboratory at UCSF as a National Institutes of Health postdoctoral fellow. He has held faculty positions at UCSF, UCLA and the University of California, San Diego. Dr Bredesen directed the Program on Ageing at the Burnham Institute before joining the Buck Institute for Research on Ageing – the world’s first biomedical research institution devoted solely to research on ageing – as its founding president and CEO.
