Main Presentation: “Systems Nutrition: A New Paradigm For Optimizing Health And Longevity With Diet And Targeted Supplementation” by Alan Gale, CEO of Aimee Health

Despite a plethora of published nutritional research in top journals, and a motivated population half of which is taking a daily supplement, we’re still suffering from an avalanche of poor health, disease, and premature death. Over 130 million people in the US suffer from 2 or more chronic diseases, and this year 450,000 people will die prematurely from preventable chronic diseases due to diet.  The crux of the issue is the science is too generalized, and isn’t actionable.
In this talk Alan Gale, CEO of Aimee Health, will discuss use of systems science to not only reduce risk of disease, but to also optimize health and longevity.  This paradigm views the body as a complex system, with interconnected subsystems (e.g. digestive, neurological, etc.), with primary inputs being nutrients from diet, and outputs being traditional medical biomarkers like blood tests and vital signs. Just as performance of any other complex system can be optimized, so can the human body.  Practical steps and tools to utilize this perspective are provided, promising a new era in personalized health.

Short Presentation: “Personalized Nutrition: Optimizing Health And Longevity Through Your Gut Microbiome” Dr. Mima Geere
The majority of chronic diseases today can be mapped back to two areas: chronic inflammation and gut microbiome changes.
The rising utilization of antibiotics and consumption of high carb low fat diets and increasing exposure to toxic chemicals over the past three decades coincides with an associated rise in chronic diseases nationwide. The growing aging population is at an increased risk of developing cancer and debilitating illness whose root cause points back to the state of our microbiome and how synchronized and balanced our body systems are with nature’s rhythms.
Diet has a direct influence on our microbiome. Dr. Geere will help you understand ways in which you can implement immediate changes to your diet that affect the health of your Gut.
