Nutritional Science and Cancer Congress 2021
Yes to Life Congress 2021 Day 1 Session 1 - Robin Daly - Sheila Dillon
SHEILA DILLON Journalist and Broadcaster Embracing the science The gap between what we know about nutrition and cancer and how cancer is treated in the UK has, if anything, widened, as nutritional science goes from strength to strength. If we are to make any impression on our shockingly poor cancer statistics then it is imperative we begin to embrace the latest nutritional science.
Yes to Life Congress 2021 Day 1 Session 3 - Dr Rob Verkerk
DR ROB VERKERK BSc MSc DIC PHD FACN "Navigating the meat-dairy-vegan-vegetarian maze" It’s hard not to be aware of the recent spectacular rise of veganism, the growing acceptance of vegetarianism, and the increasing controversy surrounding meat and dairy production. But what are the health implications surrounding these choices, some of which are made on purely ethical grounds? How do they impact on the massive problem we have with cancer incidence?
Yes to Life Congress 2021 Day 1 Session 4 - Jo Gamble & Panel Q&A
JO GAMBLE BA (Hons) DIP CNM AFMCP Fellow ICT A Functional Medicine perspective on nutrition and cancer Functional Medicine has given Nutritional Therapy mainstream status. It has changed the way that Nutritional Therapists work and is rapidly infiltrating GP thinking (as we’ll hear later). The FM approach is particularly useful in managing serious chronic conditions such as cancer and in navigating conventional cancer treatments.
Yes to Life Congress 2021 Day 1 Session 5 - Dr David Unwin
DR DAVID UNWIN PhD "Low carb diets, fasting and cancer - the latest science" Never before has one type of dietary approach – namely those that restrict carbohydrates to various degrees – been subject to so much interest both from cancer patients and the research community. But where’s keto research at today, are there different ways of delivering low carb diets, can they be personalised, are they relevant to everyone with cancer, and are there any risks?
Yes to Life Congress 2021 Day 1 Session 6 - Dr Penny Kechagioglou & Victoria Fenton
DR PENNY KECHAGIOGLOU MBBS (Hons) MRCP FRCR MPH MBA VICTORIA FENTON Functional Medicine Practitioner "How the worlds of Oncology and Nutrition can work together" Senior NHS Oncologist Dr Kechagioglou and Functional Medicine Practitioner Victoria Fenton explore the ways in which nutrition can support people going through standard cancer treatments and deliver better outcomes, in terms of treatment success and overall wellbeing.
Yes to Life Congress 2021 Day 1 Session 7 - Penny Brohn + Q&A
DR CATHERINE ZOLLMAN BA Physiol (Oxon) MBBS (London) MRCP, MRCGP, Cert Med Ed (Cardiff), Fellow Integrative Medicine NICKY ROBINSON MSc Nutritional Therapy, BA (hons), mBANT, CNCH "The Joy of Food: embracing positive nutrition" Catherine and Nicky, lead practitioners from Penny Brohn UK, discuss the evidence around real delicious food and nutrition in a cancer setting, and how to balance that against the evidence around the psychological and social aspects of eating
Yes to Life Congress 2021 Day 2 Morning Masterclass - Dr Saskia Kloppenburg
DR SASKIA KLOPPENBURG Holistic Doctor, Hifas da Terra "The Healing Power of Mushrooms" Founded in 1998, Hifas da Terra is a multinational biotechnology company with subsidiaries in UK, Iberia, France, Germany and Italy focused on research and innovation, specialising in the development of nutraceuticals from certified organic medicinal mushrooms, with a special interest in developing high concentration liquid medicinal mushroom extracts for coadjuvant use in integrative oncology treatment programmes. Join Dr. Saskia H. Kloppenburg Vieth for an inspiring workshop on the healing benefits of medicinal mushrooms as part of an integrative approach to oncological treatment in general. Current research shows that mushrooms are safe natural immune modulators with beneficial effects in quality of life and reduction of adverse effects of conventional therapies. Effects on antitumour activity, improving survival and decreasing cancer risk have also been reported. As natural biological response modifiers, potent antioxidants, and anti-inflammatories they are a key part of integrative medicine to support oncological patients.
Yes to Life Congress 2021 Day 2 Morning Talk - Mark Bennett & Q&A
MARK BENNETT BSc Hons (Nutritional Therapy) Functional nutrition, lifestyle and the immune system" Mark will be focussing in on biochemical individuality - one size does not fit all. By moving the attention from the disease to the individual, then it becomes clear that there are no standard approaches, and that food can be a medicine or a poison - which it is depends on you. Mark will also be going in to some detail as to the relationship between nutrients, nutrient density, and the effective functioning of the mitochondria and the immune system.
Yes to Life Congress 2021 Day 2 Afternoon Masterclass - Britt Cordi
DR BRITT CORDI PhD "The anti-cancer diet and how you can maintain and improve your health through juicing and wheatgrass juice" Dr Britt Cordi, PhD is known across the UK and Europe for her inspiring and knowledgeable wheatgrass and superfood presentations. She will give a wealth of insights about what an anticancer diet contains and how through foods you can support and strengthen your health. Britt’s research background and over 20 years’ experience in optimising health and wellbeing guarantees an entertaining and insightful talk.
Yes to Life Congress 2021 Day 2 Afternoon Talk - Dawn Waldron
DAWN WALDRON PG Cert CNELM Dip ION There’s no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes Based on Billy Connolly’s insightful observation, Dawn will explore the idea that poor diet and lifestyle choices are the most important factor in fending off carcinogens. Referencing Michael Fenech’s work on the ’nutriome’ which shows that micronutrient deficiencies and macronutrient imbalances may be the most important driving factor behind the genomic instability - one of the recognised hallmarks of cancer - the discussion will look at how we can better protect ourselves against our toxic inner and outer world. Dawn will explore how diet and lifestyle choices impact gene stability and gene expression, highlighting the potential for the emerging science of Nutrigenetics to provide personalised nutrition protocols to support treatment and recovery. Many people find that a cancer diagnosis follows period of intense life pressure that left them depleted physically and emotionally: a perfect storm. By understanding our own ‘nutriome’ - the precise amount of essential nutrients required for optimal genetic health - we can improve our ability to protect ourselves against the elements.
