UpcOming SelfCare Lectures, Workshops and Demonstrations

Self Care Lectures are informative and entertaining lectures on current health issues offered by our doctors, technicians or food specialists. VitaCare Education Centre offers these workshops at no cost to our patients. In most workshops you will receive handouts or a link to downloadable material, Top Ten Reports, discount coupons and more. As they are held at the clinic, space is limited so we ask that participants call ahead to reserve a spot. 250-585-2150.

As Nanaimo's food bank, Loaves and Fishes, strives to provide healthy food to its clients, we use these lectures as an opportunity for participants and the clinic to share food or monetary donations, which will be passed on to the organization. They do a fabulous job and we feel strongly that every person in our city and on the Island should have access to quality food.

New Season of Talks, Workshops and Free Self Care Lectures!

healthy Gut, Healthy Brain, Quality Life

Tuesday, October 8, Parksville Community Centre

Join Dr. John Yim in this Free lecture as he presents the latest research on how gut health influences brain health and vice versa.

 As we get older, one of our greatest fears is losing our mind. The fact is, neurodegenerative diseases are on the rise. Alzheimer’s and other dementias, Parkinson’s, and ALS are currently impossible to cure. In order to maintain our cognitive function, quality of life, and independence, for as long as possible, it takes early proactive measures.

In this educational, practical and entertaining presentation, Dr. Yim will introduce research that shows nutritional and lifestyle changes that dramatically improve gut function and how gut health equals brain health.

 You will learn:

-      Foods that heal and foods that harm the gut – brain.

-      How the balance of gut microbes affects moods and brain function.

-      How digestion and absorption or malabsorption of nutrients can be early triggers for brain disease.

-      How celiac and other food allergies damage the nervous system.

-      The role of toxins and detoxification in brain health.

-      How stress negatively impacts gut health and brain health.

-      And so much more.
