FEATURED DIET/NUTRITION TRACK PRESENTATION: Dietary Approaches to Reducing Symptoms Related to Neuroinflammation, Neurodegeneration and Autoimmunity

This session will discuss the use of diet as part of a program to reduce neuroinflammation, neurodegeneration and autoimmune related symptoms.  Dr. Wahls has a personal connection to these interventions, having experienced 7 years of steady decline due to progressive multiple sclerosis, and even spent four years dependent upon a tilt recline wheelchair. She created a diet and lifestyle intervention designed specifically to optimize our mitochondria and brain cells which restored health and vitality, and now bikes 5 miles to work each day. This session will review her personal story and the dietary and lifestyle interventions she uses in her clinics and in the clinical trials she conducts in the setting of progressive and relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis.  Learn more about her MS clinical trials by reaching out to her team MSDietStudy@healthcare.uiowa.edu.

May 31 - June 02, 2018 : IFM Annual International Conference, Hollywood FL

Learn more here.

Up to 50 million Americans are estimated to have an autoimmune condition,* and annual direct healthcare treatment costs for these patients total $100 billion.1 Nearly 100 different diseases have been classified as autoimmune in nature, with 40 more suspected.1 IFM’s 2018 Annual International Conference (AIC), “Solving the Puzzle of Autoimmunity: The Interplay of Gut, Genes, and Environment,” focuses on the exploding research and therapies around the interconnected roles of intestinal permeability, genetic disruptors, and various environmental triggers that coalesce to create autoimmune disease.

The underlying causes of autoimmune disease are multifactorial and complex, and until now, too little attention has been focused on determining the central causal factors. Expanding knowledge into manifestations of the autoimmune process is yielding productive and compelling applications around the tangle of the gut, genes, and environment in the formula. At IFM’s 2018 AIC, we will translate the data into actions that can prevent, treat, and reverse the triggers and mediators of autoimmune disease in patients.

FREE EVENT: June 10, 2018 : Dr. Terry Wahls: The Microbiome-Brain-Immune Connection

Dr. Terry Wahls: The Microbiome-Brain-Immune Connection

In this lecture and Q&A, Dr. Terry Wahls will discuss the connection between the microbes that live in our bowels and our overall health and well-being.

More studies are showing that our brain’s immune cells are deeply connected to the microbes that live on and in our body. More studies have linked the microbiome to mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, attention problems, autism spectrum disorder, and neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, as well as autoimmune problems such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, inflammatory bowel disease, and multiple sclerosis.

The good news is there is much we can do to shift the mix of microbes from disease-promoting to health-promoting. In this lecture, Dr. Wahls will discuss the impact of our microbiome on our brain, mood, and immune cells. She will also discuss specific steps you can take to improve the microbiome and create health.

Dr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa where she conducts clinical trials. She is also a patient with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years. Dr. Wahls restored her health using a diet and lifestyle program she designed specifically for her brain and now pedals her bike to work each day. She is the author of several books, including The Wahls Protocol: How I Beat Progressive MS Using Paleo Principles and Functional Medicine.

This event is presented by Capital Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Center in collaboration with Des Moines University, The Harkin Institute, and Des Moines Public Library.

The lecture will be 45 minutes with 15 minutes of Q&A moderated by Dr. Chris LoRang of Capital Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Center.
