The speakers

 'Putting Type 2 into permanent remission: with “low-carb GP'
Dr David Unwin
We have a worldwide problem with metabolic health, causing among other things three epidemics: obesity, fatty liver, type 2 diabetes.

Over six years my GP practice has completely revolutionised the treatment of our Southport community in the North of England, saving about £40,000 annually from our drug budget and achieving remission of type 2 diabetes on a weekly basis, alongside weight loss and improvements in many cardiovascular risk factors including 30% improvements in triglyceride levels and improvements in blood pressure that enable us to deprescribe over 20% of medications for hypertension in those who adopt a lower carb diet.

To do this we have trialled new ways of first motivating our patients, and then supplying relevant information to help them improve their metabolic health. Motivation is key to behaviour change and begins with clear goals supported by feedback. The two are linked, because so much can be done with lifestyle medicine – but not unless we motivate patients before we start giving loads of advice!

In part 1, I hope to demonstrate the GRIN model, a way to incorporate positive psychology into appointments – to make you a more effective and resilient patient-centred clinician.

In part 2, I will explore glucose, insulin and triglycerides, to show how we give our patients relevant information they can understand to help inform their dietary choices and deliver 30% improvements in triglyceride levels and 40% type 2 diabetes remission – without drugs.

 'The GI Microbiome and Autoimmunity-What Are the Connections and Do They Matter?'
Dr David Brady
There simply is no longer any doubt that the gut microbiome is central to the health or disease state of the host. This is no longer a concept or hypothesis discussed amongst functional and integrative practitioners, but has now become amongst the hottest area of conventional medical research. However, with all of these studies coming out daily, do you feel comfortable in leveraging this new information at the point of clinical care? Does this data really affect your clinical and diagnostic decisions or how you treat your patients and clients?

This presentation will bring the experience of a leading functional medicine physicians who has had inside access and insight into the evolution of gut microbiome testing, research and clinical application to you in this exciting program that will clinically apply this emerging understanding into your clinical practice paradigm.

 'Avoiding the Dangers of a Gluten-Free Diet'
Tom O'Bryan
Comorbidities with wheat related disorders are high. Twenty-nine (29%) of those with non- celiac wheat sensitivity (NCWS) may demonstrate an autoimmune disease or elevated antinuclear antibodies. Within 3 years, 87% of those with ANA antibodies have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. In Celiac Disease (CD), complete histological normalization of the small-intestinal mucosa occurs in only 8–20% of adult patients after commencing a gluten-free diet. With the significant advances in knowledge of the pathogenic, epidemiological, clinical and diagnostic aspects of Wheat Related Disorders, our understanding of immune reactions to the toxic family of partially-digested proteins found in wheat, rye and barley has been rapidly growing.

You will learn:

• Developing a more comprehensive overview of wheat-related disorders
• Successfully and comprehensively identifying wheat-related disorders
• Recognising the frequency of detrimental impact on the epithelial lining of the GI Tract with a wheat-related disorder
• Protocols successfully addressing the damage to the intestinal lining, recognising the need for comprehensive dietary guidance for food selections (and avoidances).
