Mindd Foundation proudly invites you to the 8th Mindd International Forum to be held at the Australian Turf Club in Sydney, 15-17 May, 2015.
This year’s forum will focus on “Finding Your Balance” with the objective of educating patients and training practitioners in effective solutions for the prevention and treatment of disease.
Health and Happiness are all about balance. With balance we can reduce physical and emotional stress on the body which in turn reduces oxidative stress (rusting of our cells) and inflammation (asthma is inflammation of the lungs; arthritis is inflammation of the joints; cardiac disease is involves inflammation of the heart; ADHD, anxiety, depression and Autism involve brain inflammation). Integrative healthcare works to balance all body systems including nutrient levels, hormones, brain chemistry, blood sugar, the musculo-skeletal system, energy and emotions.
Practitioner Training will include a 3 day certification program combining 2 days of MAPS (US-based Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs) training and one day of Mindd training. The full 3 days is a prerequisite for certification and website listing.
General Public Education will include 3 streams; Food Is Medicine, Adult Health and Child-Teen Health.
Integrative Healthcare offers a holistic and personalised approach to treatment and prevention that supports the body’s innate ability to heal, grow, prevent and fight disease. Whether you are a parent managing your child’s chronic condition or an adult wanting to prevent cancer or heart disease, the Mindd Forum offers solutions for you.
Modern diseases are at an all time high and are effecting our children in large numbers. Emerging research points to diet, toxins, infections and lifestyle impacting on the 70 trillion cells in the human body as well as the 700 trillion cells that make up the “good bugs” in our digestive tract. By recognising that disease is not solely genetic, we can take charge of our health as well as the wellbeing of future generations.
Best outcomes result from teams of well-trained professionals and educated patients who work together to select, sequence and integrate treatments that treat the whole individual with a focus on addressing core causes versus symptoms.
The alarming rates of chronic disease are a sign that we need to rethink prevailing healthcare practices & lifestyle
