Decades of genetic and nutrition studies by my laboratory and others have resulted in the identification and understanding of strategies to activate high protection, repair and regeneration systems able to prevent but also treat diseases. We now know that certain genetic mutations are effective in greatly reducing cancer and diabetes rates in mice and humans. Chronic dietary restriction is also able to prevent major diseases in monkeys and has strong effects on disease risk factors in humans, but it also has detrimental effects on lean body mass, and potentially on immunity and wound healing.

Presented by: James Gordon, MD
This session will present a comprehensive approach to trauma healing which emphasizes the capacity to transform a sometimes-overwhelming crisis into an opportunity for profound psychological and spiritual growth.
Two mind-body techniques will be shared that create the psychological and biological foundation for this process of transformation. These and other mind-body techniques have been used to successfully reverse the damage done by psychological trauma with millions of adults and children in the United States and around the world.
