• Searching for the Perfect Diet

    Original Date: April 5, 2014
    Presenter: Jared Zeff, ND

    The one common denominator among naturopathic physicians is an understanding that food is key to health and healing. Diet is a foundational aspect of health. There are many competing ideas regarding the best way to eat. A search of the traditional approaches to diet among naturopathic physicians through time is instructive in understanding how one should eat to regain and maintain health. Through such an effort can we gain an understanding of the best approach to healthy eating? Dr. Zeff will explore this history, focusing upon the major dietary systems and ideas and try to develop a foundation for understanding what is the “perfect diet”.

    Presenter: Martin Milner, ND

    Evolving scientific evidence is mounting in support of a whole food, plant based, anti-inflammatory diet, with no saturated animal fat, no refined carbohydrates and no refined oils for the reversal rather than the mere prevention of coronary artery disease. How much evidence is there in the literature and how definitive are the trials with a plant based, whole foods only approach? How can I help my patients comply? What about the Mediterranean, Paleo or other evidence based diets? How do you manage a diabetic on a vegan diet? What further trials are needed? Where do we go from here?

  • Gluten Free Updates in Clinical Practice

    Original Date: April 6, 2014
    Presenter: Lisa Shaver, ND

    Prescribing the Gluten-Free Diet (GFD) has supplied a powerful clinical dietary modality for the past decade for treatment of symptoms in a variety of systems. “Gluten” and other wheat proteins are complex culprits in symptomatic pictures in patients with celiac disease, other autoimmune diagnoses and non-celiac gluten-sensitivity. Gluten-free diets now extend beyond wheat-free and on occasion delve into grain-free diets. We will discuss which GFD is appropriate to recommend and the issue of the calories and nutrition of grains on which humans have been dependent for millennia.
