Top international speakers are flying in to deliver talks on all aspects of ancestral diet and lifestyle science – book this date now and buy a ticket while there are still early-bird prices – until July 31st 2015
This symposium will bring together nearly 30 speakers from across New Zealand, Australia and North America to discuss, debate and share knowledge on some of the issues we face as a community pertaining to individual health and the health of our environment from an evolutionary perspective.
Many of our speakers are world leaders in their respective fields and will communicate, educate, and challenge the status quo on a variety of topics that include climate change, sustainability, mental health, active transport, Maori ecology, sleep, microbiome, nutrition, food policy, healthy movement, evolutionary psychology and reproductive health.
For more information on speakers and topics please see ancestralhealthnz.org/symposium/speakers/. Some of the speakers that you may be familiar with include: Psychiatrist Dr Emily Deans who writes the blog Evolutionary Psychiatry and is a regular writer for Psychology today. Professor David Raubenheimer who defined the ‘protein leverage hypothesis’ which he has tested, this reveals that humans and other animals tend to keep eating until a certain amount of protein is consumed in a day, so protein intake is critical for appetite control. Dallas Hartwig, founder of Whole9 and co-author of “It Starts with Food” and “The Whole 30” – in my opinion one the most sound 30 day paleo challenge programmes in the world. Steph Gaudreau, from ‘Stupid Easy Paleo’ an expert in diets for paleo athletes, especially female athletes, will be talking about strength training for women. This is just a taste – have a look at the speaker line-up, and the programme – you will be impressed!
Not only is there an incredible line-up of international speakers, just about everyone who is a leader in the paleo and ancestral health community in New Zealand will be there either speaking, or listening.
