I would totally go to this if I was closer. Bringing all of the highly respected leaders in various fields of medicine together, where they can all contribute and offer ideas sounds powerful. Hopefully through discussion, these medical professionals will implement something that will be effective for reducing/or reversing chronic illnesses. We need something!!! The numbers of people with diseases that are considerd to be "uncurable" or "lifelong" is only growing day by day.
The Lifestyle Medicine Summit that Metagenics will host on dates: Sept. 28-30, 2012, in Dana Point, Calif, will bring together leaders in this growing field - Lifestyle Medicine - to share how science-based protocols can be effectively applied in clinical practice to reduce or reverse chronic health conditions and transform lives.
"Around the world, the adoption of Western dietary habits, along with increasingly sedentary lifestyles and poorly managed stress, has led to an epidemic of chronic illnesses, such as type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and autoimmune diseases."
“With the worldwide epidemic of chronic disease impacting our health and our economies, there's no debating that lifestyle medicine is a powerful force that cannot only help prevent, but also alleviate many of these illnesses,” said Jeffrey Bland, PhD, FACS, CNS, chief science officer for Metagenics Inc."
