It was a great pleasure to be part of the last IHCAN Conferences of 2019. This time the conference was dedicated to the “Two approaches to gut, brain and immunity: CBD and the Hybrid Diet for repair and regeneration”
With Patrick Holford, BSc, DipION, FBANT, NTCRP, a leading spokesman on nutrition and founder of the Institute for Optimum Nutrition and Food for the Brain Foundation. He is the author of 40 books, translated into over 30 languages, including his latest book The Hybrid Diet, co-authored with award-winning medical journalist Jerome Burne.
Patrick was involved in groundbreaking research showing that multivitamins can increase children’s IQ scores – the subject of a Horizon television documentary in the 1980s. He was one of the first promoters of the importance of zinc, essential fats, low-GL diets and homocysteine-lowering B vitamins and their importance in mental health.
And Dr. Elisabeth Philipps, a neuropharmacologist and Functional Medicine nutritional therapist with over 18 years experience. Her extensive academic training includes a BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Science from Kings College London, a PhD in neuropharmacology from Oxford University and a BSc in Nutritional Medicine.
Elisabeth runs a thriving health consultancy (www.hartwellnutrition.co.uk) specialising in nutritional neurology, where she provides expert opinion for private clients, corporate business programmes, the national press and specialist healthcare publications. Elisabeth is also leading consultant for Nutrigold (www.nutrigold.co.uk) co-ordinating their busy technical and educational team, researching and delivering clinical presentations and developing bioavailable and efficacious food supplements. Elisabeth was also instrumental in creating nutrihub online functional nutrition training platform (www.nutrihub.org) where she is now lead content creator and head tutor.
Looking forward to meet you at the 2020 IHCAN Conferences.
