More about the talks

12.00 – Heather Russell RD (The Vegan Society) - 20 most common vegan health questions

Heather Russell leads us through some of the common misconceptions about vegan diets and the health benefits so many other dietitians and Doctors are still unaware of.

1.00 - Lisa Murphy BSc.(hons), PG Dip. Couns - Are you being hypnotised to eat junkfood?

Have you ever wondered why you reached for that chocolate when you weren’t even hungry?  Or why you just couldn’t stop until you finished the whole pack of biscuits? 

During this talk Lisa sheds some light on the sneaky ways we are being manipulated into eating foods that are low in nutrition and high in calories. 

Learn how to avoid falling into the junk food trap, and begin to choose the foods that will help you feel healthier and happier.

A free gift of a 'Healthy Mindset' Self-Hypnosis MP3 is also included, for you to relax and listen to at home.

2.00 - Dr Emilie Combet - Iodine insufficiency and seaweed 

Dr Combet’s research and thus her talk focuses, in particular, on women of childbearing age, pregnancy and infancy, and the ageing overweight adult. Relevant recent published papers include surveys of iodine sufficiency in the UK, and an in-depth look at seaweed as a potential source of iodine.

 

3.00 - Sue Culm RHN - Is the popularity of the Vegan Diet undermining a key benefit? 

Sue Culm explores how to maintain health in an increasingly unhealthy world: how the popularity of veganism may also be its health downfall, with strategies to optimize the vegan diet. Sue will also be addressing the childhood obesity epidemic and how getting kids and teens to eat more plants can help combat this dangerous reality.

 

4.00 - Yvonne Bishop-Weston BSc DipION mBANT CHNC - Vegan Parents & Safe Optimum Vegan Diets for Babies and Children

Yvonne will cover children’s diets and how to safely bring up your kids on a vegan diet that easily outperforms the standard underperforming UK diet. The UK Diet is unwittingly tolerated and recommended nationwide by too many ill-informed GP’s, nutritionists and Dietitians. The talk will cover weaning and fertility if time permits. Meet Yvonne after the lecture in the kid’s area for Q&A

 

5.00 - Keith Robertson MSc FNIMH - Cruelty Free Health Care?

When the realisation struck that all modern drugs are tested on animals Keith Robertson MSc FNIMH diverted from training as an orthodox doctor to studying Herbal Medicine. The result was a lifetime fascination with medicinal plants and their healing capabilities. Keith will discuss many aspects of the art and science behind this compassionate healing tradition
