Weston A. Price 13th Annual Conference
The 2012 WAPF Conference is in California this year and guess what that means? I’m going! And, it’s my birthday weekend…bonus. Yeah, who would want to be at a conference on their birthday? Me, because I’m that kind of nutrition nerd. Actually, there is so much more to the conference than just nutrition. If you care at all about sustainable farming and food and getting out of the corporate owned food supply we’re in, grab your tickets now!
There are so many great presenters scheduled it’s going to be hard to decide. Here are a few I’m really looking forward to seeing:
Natasha Campbell-McBride: GAPS
Dr Campbell-McBride will be talking about GAP Syndrome or GAPS, which stands for Gut And Psychology / Gut And Physiology Syndrome. In addition to the well published psychological and neurological disorders there will be a wealth of information on autoimmune problems, allergies, asthma, eczema, MS, chronic fatigue syndrome, ME, fibromyalgia, arthritis, diabetes type one, chronic cystitis, chronic skin problems and many other physical conditions. New information on GAPS for those familiar with Dr Natasha’s work will be presented and discussed. For both those who are learning about GAPS for the first time and those who are already experienced, this seminar which contains information used in the recent GAPS Practitioner Certification Courses is a must.
Chris Kresser, L. Ac: The Gut-Brain-Skin Axis – New Perspectives on an Old Idea
The connection between skin and mental health disorders has been a topic of growing interest in medicine over the past two decades, as evidenced by the rise of new disciplines like psychodermatology and neurodermatology. More recently, researchers are turning their attention to the connection between the skin and the gut. For example, studies have shown that those with acne and other skin problems are more likely to experience digestive issues like constipation, acid reflux and IBS – and vice versa. In this presentation, we’ll discuss the relationship between digestive, mental/behavioral and skin disorders, and explore nutritional strategies to preventing and treating them.
Chris Masterjohn: Nutritional Adjuncts of the Fat-Soluble Vitamins
In this session we will identify the molecular interactions between fat-soluble vitamins and other nutrients or endogenous compounds. We will also talk about how nutritional and lifestyle choices can be used to enhance the biological efficacy of a sufficient intake of fat-soluble vitamins.
