Dr William Walsh | Dr Malcolm Kendrick | Jeannette Hyde | Dr Khalid Khan

William J. Walsh, PhD, FACN

William J. Walsh, PhD, FACN

Keynote Speaker

William Walsh, Ph.D, is president of the non-profit Walsh Research Institute near Chicago, and directs doctor-training programs in the U.S., Australia, and Norway.

During his 30+ years as a  research scientist and engineer, Dr. Walsh developed a science-based nutrient system that has helped thousands of patients challenged by behavioral disorders, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, ADHD, autism, and Alzheimer’s disease, and is used by doctors throughout the world.

Dr.  Walsh has researched biomedical details for individuals previously considered as untreatable:  from personality disorders to others insufficiently treatable with modern psychopharmacology. Dr. Walsh’s approach recognizes that nutrient imbalances can alter brain levels of key neurotransmitters, disrupt gene expression of proteins and enzymes, and cripple the body’s protection against environmental toxins.

His book, Nutrient Power (Skyhorse Publishing, 2012), describes his findings and the advanced nutrient therapies which correct biochemical and methylation imbalances that are causing learning, behavioral, developmental and mental health issues.

'Advanced Nutrient Therapy: Healing the Brain to Improve Energy, Mood and Behaviour'

The number of people who are affected by mental health is rising in the U.K. and worldwide. Recent advances in epigenetics and methylation science bring attention to how vitamin and essential nutrient pathways can be compromised resulting in an astonishing number of families affected by mental disorders. This presentation includes non-drug, advanced nutrient therapy approaches for various behaviour disorders, ADHD, and five different depression conditions. Treatment protocols and clinical challenges are described for the major imbalances. The interface with medication and counselling are also addressed. www.walshinstitute.org

Dr Malcolm Kendrick

Dr Malcolm Kendrick

Keynote Speaker

Malcolm Kendrick graduated from Aberdeen University, and then trained and worked as a General Practitioner. He now lives and works as a GP in Cheshire. He has a long-term fascination with the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease. He has published widely on many topics, and wrote the best-selling The Great Cholesterol Con, and more recently Doctoring Data.

He lectures widely on a range of medical topics, and is a member of The International Network of Cholesterol Skeptics (THINCS) a group of scientists and researchers who share the belief that cholesterol levels have no effect on cardiovascular disease. His blog is drmalcolmkendrick.org.

'Twelve angry men. How the evidence against cholesterol was built into an apparently cast iron case by the prosecution, but when you examine it, nothing stands up'

We all “know” that cholesterol doesn’t cause heart disease, but are we on shaky ground when we explain this to patients – some of whom may even be on statins? Dr Malcolm Kendrick takes as his theme the film Twelve Angry Men, showing how the evidence against cholesterol was built into an apparently cast iron case by the “prosecution”, but when you examine it, nothing stands up:

The diet-heart-cholesterol hypothesis evolved over 150 years, from Virchow’s initial observations on finding cholesterol within ‘diseased’ artery walls, to the statin trials of today. Piece by piece evidence has been built up that now appears to prove inarguably that… First, saturated fat/any fat raises blood cholesterol. Second, raised cholesterol causes heart disease. Today, the average person on the street absolutely knows that these two facts are true. Supermarket shelves groan under low-fat products, fourteen million people fit the new guidelines to take statins and lower blood cholesterol.

However, as in the film Twelve Angry Men, every piece of evidence falls apart when examined critically. This talk will show how the case was built up, and how this was really a process of deciding, early on, that saturated fat and cholesterol were the guilty parties, and then twisting and bending facts to prove what was already known to be true. The exact opposite of science.

Dr Kendrick will then outline a completely different way of looking at heart disease/cardiovascular disease which explains the underlying process. Something first proposed more than 150 years ago by Karl von Rokitansky. Virchow’s great rival.

'The Hidden Factor in all Disease - Using Medical NLP™ to reorientate your clients to healing and health'

Medical Neuro-Linguistic Programming™ was developed to help busy health practitioners deal with the avalanche of complex chronic diseases that threatens to overwhelm both patients and practitioners. Up to 40% of conditions for which people seek help have no readily identifiable cause.

By seeking out underlying factors, reviewing existing (but not readily available) research and applying the results of extensive clinical practice, Medical NLP™ is a continuing developing field that can be easily integrated with any practice to improve clinical outcomes.

Dr Khan—co-founder of The Society of Medical NLP—discusses the hidden factor behind all disease and gives three practical and easily-learned techniques to help your patients move from the ‘stuck-ness’ of chronic disease to the freedom and movement of healing and health.
