The Royal Society of Medicine

Thursday 19th November 2015

Led by the experienced Nutritional Therapist: Antony Haynes BA (Hons), DipION, mBANT

This evening seminar will take the gathering understanding of the role of our mitochondria as sentinels of metabolic and immune dysfunction and how lifestyle including food and food concentrates are able to either increase or decrease their viability. As our understanding of the molecular influence of food continues to grow, significant understandings become all the more important in our delivery of advice and recommendations. You may think that this subject is too esoteric or removed from every day clinical life, but never has an area of application been more relevant to almost all the clients or people that you support. Delivered in an easy to appreciate format with clinical applicability, we feel confident that this will enhance your confidence and improve your outcomes. We will be recording the event for people attending and those unable to travel.

6.30 pm Seminar starts
7.30 pm Break with refreshments
7.50 pm Seminar re-commences
9.30 pm Seminar ends

The seminar will include:

Introduction to the research which focuses on mitochondrial inflexibility and how this can have an influence on a variety of health conditions including metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY) & fatty liver conditions. Learn about the nutritional advice can help to support optimal mitochondrial flexibility.

You will be introduced to terms including these: Metabolic Inflexibility, Metabolic Gridlock, Aberrant nutrient partitioning, Carbon flux, Respiratory Quotient, Diurnal Oscillations in whole-body RQ, Metabolic Plasticity, Mitochondrial Indecision, Intermittent Fasting and Caloric Restriction.

8 Important Learning Objectives.

  1. Learn about mitochondrial inflexibility.
  2. Learn what mitochondrial inflexibility can do to your health
  3. Learn about the mechanisms behind the causes of mitochondrial inflexibility.
  4. Learn about how mitochondrial inflexibility is related to insulin action, glucose disposal, lipolysis, lipid storage, cardiac contractility, immune function & the inflammatory response.
  5. Learn about the prevalence of fatty liver conditions, including non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and how mitochondria are involved, and what nutritional advice helps to potentially reverse them.
  6. Learn about how intermittent fasting influences metabolic functions.
  7. Learn how regular physical activity can support mitochondrial function.
  8. Learn how to best support an individual with Nutritional Therapy to optimise mitochondrial flexibility.

      Hi Patrizia,
      If you are unable to attend this event, then most items will be available as a download via our Home Learning packs, but I’m sure we’ll be able to send out any hard copies if these are not available via the website to download.

    Are there student prices available for this event?

    Hello I too live abroad. can this be ordered via email and not by phone to organise the home-learning packs etc? How do I proceed? do we book online and then phone (hopefully email) to organise receipt of info? Antony Hayes is excellent; I learnt from him many years ago.
