Food Sensitivities & Special Diets Seminar

Our Special Diets Seminar addresses specific gastro-intestinal problems and how to alter the diet to reduce or eliminate these distressing symptoms. This seminar is suitable for nurses, carers, chefs and may be even yourself.

Special Diets for Food Sensitivities

Food sensitivities including food allergies and food intolerances are increasing throughout the world.  This phenomenon is consistent among developed countries.  Find out what is causing this dramatic increase.  What are some of the things we can do to prevent food sensitivities?  Learn what’s in common in asthma, eczema, rhinitis, food allergy and colorectal cancer.

Maintain Optimum Diet with Food Restrictions

Do you want to safely avoid foods you might be sensitive to?  How would dietary restrictions (through avoiding these offending foods) cause inadvertent nutritional deficiency?  Learn how to supplement deficient nutrients with other safe food substitutes and appropriate nutritional supplements.  It is important to maintain optimal nutritional status at all times while eliminating the offending foods and reintroducing them by challenging with different strengths of the offending food.  This is particularly important in food intolerance where total food-exclusion is often unnecessary.

Reverse Food Sensitivities and Restore Health

More importantly, learn how to gradually reverse some food sensitivities using natural solutions and possibly even prevent them in the future .  This seminar is specially designed for anyone who wants to get rid of their crippling food sensitivity symptoms and methodically restore their health and wellbeing.

Resolving Food Sensitivities with Traditional Medicines

Our Food Sensitivities & Special Diets seminar offers new information and powerful strategies for  not just food avoidance to alleviate food intolerances and allergies but also explore scientifically sound therapies for possibly resolving some food sensitivities.  Learn some exciting new insights on historic practices of traditional medicines and draw from their timeless wisdom in helping people reduce their suffering from food allergies and intolerances.  Find out what are some of the common herbs that confer powerful medicinal benefits and increase your tolerance to the offending food substance.  Learn some simple techniques to gradually strengthen your immune system by healing with herbal adaptogens to modify food sensitivity.

Emotions & Food Sensitivities

Did you know that your emotions are critical to your intestinal function?  It appears that chronic psychological stress and digestive responsiveness can stimulate certain immune reactions and increase intestinal permeability.  Is it any coincidence that individuals with higher anxiety and depression scores are often associated with food intolerances?

Be Your Own Nutritional Sleuth

If you are tired of feeling sub-optimal or even outright unwell after eating certain foods, come and find out what might be the offending substance, learn to be your own nutritionist and create a special diet for yourself, your family or a resident at your aged care facility.

As they say “you are your own best doctor”, come and learn to be your own nutritional sleuth and formulate your own special diet at this Special Diets Seminar and feel better for the first time in a long while!
