From 15 November 2021, medical and allied healthcare workers can enrol in a brand-new elective module being offered by Nutrition Network (NN). The new module will focus on the application of therapeutic carbohydrate restriction (TCR) to various conditions.
The new module, called Nutritional Paradigms for Treating Chronic Disease, will examine the emerging evidence behind how TCR can be applied to various conditions in detail. It will share alternative ways to treat disease, specifically through nutritional intervention, and will look at the different versions of TCR, such as the carnivore and ketogenic diets. It also includes a talk on the multidisciplinary team approach and includes a range of lecturers from diverse backgrounds.
Nutritional Paradigms for Treating Chronic Disease is an elective module that can be completed as part of the advanced training curriculum. It is suitable for medical professionals and allied healthcare workers who are familiar with the TCR lifestyle.
The lecturers include Dr Robert Lustig MD, who will be sharing the eight pathologies he deems responsible for chronic disease; Dr Fotinos Paragakos, a dentist who will be discussing periodontal disease and its relationship to overall wellness and key chronic conditions; and Dr Joan Ifland, the author of Processed Food Addiction: Foundations, Assessment and Recovery, who will be discussing the impact of processed food on immune system function. Joining them is Dr Nasha Winters, the author of The Metabolic Approach to Cancer, who will be looking at the nutritional recommendations for cancer today, and certified NN Practitioner Peter Cummings who will be hosting a two-part lecture that will look at the programme his medical fitness centre in New York uses, with an emphasis on cardiometabolic fitness. Veterinarian Petro Dobromylskyj will also be providing a detailed lecture on how pathological insulin sensitivity could be causing metabolic derangement and adipocyte hypertrophy.
In a bonus lecture, which appeared at the World Nutrition Summit, registered dietitian Tamzyn Murphy will discuss the application of the Carnivore Diet in treating a variety of conditions. NN Managing Director Jayne Bullen will also be examining the carnivore diet through an interview with Janae Cywes, the wife of obesity expert Dr Robert Cywes, who followed the Carnivore Diet throughout her pregnancy. Health Coach Tracey McBeath is interviewed about her experience using diet to manage her autoimmune condition, and Maria Emmerich discusses the management of Lyme’s disease with nutritional intervention.
Then Tamzyn Murphy returns for a second lecture, in which she discusses how polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) may be contributing to modern metabolic diseases.
Finally, Professor Tim Noakes will share his personal story of moving from embedded to autonomous scientist in a lecture titled A Personal Experience of Scientific Suppression.
This training is worth 15 CPD Accreditation hours.
