Conference & Expo for Health Professionals & General Public

17-20 May 2013 University of NSW Sydney

Mindd Forum '13 Overview

Nutritional & Integrative Treatments for Environmental Illness

17-20 May

Featuring World Experts on Nutrient Therapy, Diet, Natural & Neuro Therapies

Mindd Foundation proudly invites you to the 6th Mindd International Forum 2013 to be held at the John Niland Scientia Building, University of NSW, Randwick, Sydney.

The Forum runs over four days. Lectures commence at 8:45 am on Friday 17, May and end 6:00 pm Monday 20, May.

Medical research indicates that many modern diseases including ADHD, allergies, arthritis, asthma, Autism, cancer, dementia, diabetes & heart disease are driven by environmental factors such as diet, exercise, lifestyle and pollution which can trigger inflammation, infection and auto-immune disease. Addressing these underlying causes can greatly improve physical and mental health while reducing the risk of future disease and the need for medication.

Integrative healthcare offers real solutions for the whole family by integrating principles of dietary therapy, nutrient therapy, structural support, progressive functional and naturopathic medicine, allopathic medical knowledge, neuro- behavioural therapies, and environmental & lifestyle education to restore the body's natural ability to grow, heal and prevent disease.
