How to Eat for Long-Term Health

Dr Robert Lustig In Conversation With Kirkland Smulders

Join Logo

From keto to vegan to Mediterranean to paleo, advice on nutrition and supplementation is confusing and conflicting at the best of times. So what should we actually eat for optimal health?

As a practicing clinician and academic researcher for over forty years, bestselling author and paediatric neuro-endocrinologist Dr Robert Lustig is well qualified to advise us on the science of how to protect and cultivate good health in the face of conflicting agendas and advice.

In this livestream event, he will break down the relative benefits of various diets and their effects on our health. He will show us that one of the keys to long term health is to protect our liver from oxidative stress and feed our guts with healthy fibre – and do this with real, non-processed food. And he will also tell us about the biochemistry of addiction and what processed foods, sugar and social media have in common.

With deep knowledge, clear communication and persuasive charm, Dr Lustig will provides a roadmap to greater health, longevity and happiness.

This livestream is held in collaboration with MindHealth360

MindHealth360 is a free guide to head-to-toe mental health. Their aim is to empower patients, their friends, families and health practitioners, with the awareness, knowledge and resources to heal. They believe that integrative and functional medicine provide the most sustainable solutions to common mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, poor memory and attention. This is because we know that for long term healing to take place, all the factors which impact our mental health must be taken into account, and are inseparable: lifestyle factors, psycho-spiritual factors, and biochemical factors all overlap and impact each other to contribute to our particular mental health issues.
