Food choices along the cancer journey – The functional point of view 

 

with Silvia Grisendi PhD, DipNT, mBANT, rCNHC

Date: Wednesday 5th July 

Where: Mei Leaf Tea House, Camden London

Tickets: Early Bird now available £10.00. Standard: £15.00

After spending many years as a research scientist investigating the cellular mechanisms through which cancer develops, Silvia became fascinated with the potential of healing naturopathic diets and the extraordinary difference that a holistic approach can make for individuals suffering from chronic health issues such as diabetes, metabolic syndrome, allergies, immune diseases, chronic pain, and cancer. 

A functional approach to nutrition means to support the person as a whole, using the principles of Functional Medicine to look at the root causes of disease along with nutritional and lifestyle adjustments to restore balance. From a functional perspective, cancer may develop as the result of combined biochemical imbalances that accumulate over time for different reasons. A natural functional approach aims at identifying these imbalances, and at harnessing the power of ‘food as medicine’ to stimulate the body’s innate healing resources.

This talk will provide insights into some of the key drivers of cancer pathology, and discuss evidence-based food and lifestyle strategies that can help create a body environment where cancer cells are unable thrive.

A Q&A session will follow the talk and light refreshments will be available.

He will talk about how to alleviate stress; turning the way we look at things into a positive wake-up call; having fun and laughing; having strong social support groups; and to how to distance yourself from negative people. Sharing his expert knowledge he will aim to give the audience tools on how to achieve these.

Joining Dr Young-Snell is the founder of LiveWheatGrassJuice, Dr Britt Cordi. Founded in 2009, LiveWheatGrassJuice is a family run business. Britt presents across Europe and the US as well as writing with nutritionists and wellness specialists. She will be presenting examples of what an anti-cancer diet and lifestyle looks like according to a recent large scientific review.Through demonstrating delicious power-packed recipes she will show evidence to support the importance of wheatgrass juice and how the superfood can boost the body's health and well-being. There will be live presentations and chance to sample juices during the seminar.

Four times cancer survivor, Elaine Godley has become a force in helping support people with cancer. A former CEO, she lectures and trains others on the importance of understanding how our behaviours affect our success in life and especially our health. Elaine was given 1 year to live with stage 4 cancer in July 2015. She beat it in 16 weeks from diagnosis. She will share extracts from her personal journey and provide insights on how understanding our own behavioural strengths can be useful in recovery from major illness and disease. Elaine is one of our Yes to Life helpline volunteers, a nutritional adviser and an expert in the DISC model of behavioural profiling.

There will be a Q&A session after each speaker and a chance to meet and chat over refreshments. Goody bags from Weleda will be given to all attendees. Recipes for juices will also be available from LiveWheatGrassJuice.
