We’ve invited the best so you can soak up the learning….

Led by “Low-carb GP” Dr David Unwin, whose “conventional” GP practice has a staggering success rate with putting people with Type 2 diabetes into remission. His clinical audits show diabetics on a low-carb lifestyle losing on average 10kg in weight, reducing HbA1c and seeing signifi cant reductions in LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure.

Dr Unwin is joined by Lucinda Miller, a specialist in children’s health, autism and ADHD, and appearing for the first time, the compelling Adriano dos Santos, a clinical nutritionist and MSc sleep medicine researcher, who has just published the first systematic review on the microbiome, sleep
and metabolic syndrome.

One more speaker to be confirmed.

‘Using ‘lifestyle medicine’ instead of ‘lifelong medication’ a message of hope’

Last year our team published a paper in BMJ Nutrition. To our astonishment it became the most popular paper this journal has ever published and was picked up by The Times. The Daily Express and other news outlets all over the world. In it we shared exactly how we had used diet to improve the health of hundreds of our NHS patients. The idea is to use ‘lifestyle medicine’ instead of ‘lifelong medication’. Central to this is motivating people to improve their diet while helping them understand the benefits of nutrient dense foods. Last time I spoke at IHCAN three years ago we had 84 people in drug free diabetes remission now we have 137 and we have learnt a lot more.

Please let me share our knowledge so you can all get results like ours!

About Dr David Unwin

Dr. David Unwin, MD, is an award-winning general practitioner (or family doctor) known for pioneering the low-carb approach in the UK. Through the years, Dr. Unwin has been highly recognized for his work within his field.

In 2015, Dr. Unwin was made a UK Royal College of General Practitioners expert clinical advisor in 2015 for his dedicated efforts within the areas of patient communication and type 2 diabetes.

Then, in 2016, Dr. Unwin won the prestigious NHS Innovator of the Year award for his work with diabetes patients.

From 2017 to 2018, his practice saved £57,000 on drugs for type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and other conditions by offering patients a dietary alternative to medications.

Also in 2018, Dr. Unwin was named the ninth most influential general practitioner in the UK by GP magazine Pulse. Moreover, he is a clinical expert in Diabetes at Fellowship of the UK Royal College of General Practitioners where he was elected as a Fellow back in 2008.

Additionally, Dr. Unwin is the medical advisor at the popular Low Carb Program and is doing his best to spread knowledge about low carb among doctors, dietitians, and nurses.

Dr. Unwin has also written several peer-reviewed papers to strengthen the science behind low-carb diets.

Dr. Unwin’s work has been covered by BBCNew Scientist, Daily Mail,  and The British Medical Journal.

‘Brain Brilliance – Nutrition For Nurturing Better Mind, Mood & Focus’

Bringing up children can be a rollercoaster ride, and this is compounded by the rise in neurodivergence, learning difficulties, mood swings and anxiety. When you nourish the mind, immune system and gut with proper food, you are building the health and resilience which everyone needs to stay happy, focused and well – even when life sends its inevitable challenges. Since a child’s brain development continues until they are well into their twenties, what they eat now lays down the foundations of their future health.

She has been practising as a naturopath for over 25 years, qualified in Functional Medicine and is author of the bestselling cookbooks, The Good Stuff and I Can’t Believe It’s Baby Food (and look out for her new book Brain Brilliance published end August 2024).

‘Sunlight & Nutrition as Therapeutic Modulators of Microbiome for Sleep and Metabolic Disorders?’

Adriano dos Santos, BSc, rNutr, AFMCP, MBOG, RSM, ESIM is a functional nutritionist with a practice in the Hague, pursuing an MSc in sleep medicine in the Clinical Neuroscience department at the University of Bern, Switzerland, and is lined up for a research Fellowship at the University of Oxford with the world’s leading authority on sleep and circadian rhythm research, Prof Russell Foster.

Adriano is the author of a breakthrough systematic review paper, recently published in Nutrients, which is the first to identify the links between the gut microbiome, sleep disorders and Metabolic Syndrome.

Adriano told us: “Of all the microbes that live symbiotically with humans, our gut contains the highest numbers.. This gut microbiome is in contact communication with our brain. Disruption of this relationship between our gut and its microbiome can lead to several conditions, such as metabolic syndrome and sleep disorders. This talk will highlight the factors which can lead to this dysbiosis, and highlight studies from the literature that have shown that nutrition can alleviate metabolic symptoms, and can also alleviate sleep disorders”.

Adriano explained his research in an in-depth interview in IHCAN’s March issue.
