Yes to Life 'Pushing the Boundaries' Annual conference

Integrative Medicine is a living, rapidly expanding science, with new understandings and potential being unveiled on a daily basis.

 

Speakers include Patricia Peat, ex Registered General Nurse Dip Pall C Dip UTR Head of Cancer Options; Dr Nasha Winters, ND, FABNO; Dr Olivia Lesslar, Functional Medicine

ME/CFS; Michael Lerner, President and Co-founder of  CancerChoices;  Dr Michael Castro, Neuro-Oncologist; Dr Sean Devlin,DO, HMD Integrative Medicine; Robin Daly, Yes to Life Founder and Chairman; and many more.

 

This year’s conferences – one online in the Summer, and one in-person in the Autumn – share the title ‘Pushing the Boundaries’, as we have decided to devote them both to looking at the latest developments in Integrative Medicine, across the board.

 

So that includes new techniques, new scientific understandings, and new applications for existing therapies, and you’ll be hearing fresh insights from some of your most trusted clinicians and scientists, and led into unfamiliar territory by pioneering speakers who may be as yet unfamiliar. 

 

The conferences are being co-created by Patricia Peat from Cancer Options and the Peat Institute and Yes to Life, with the aim of sending our audiences home with a wealth of resources on which to be able to draw for their own needs. Both events will be priced for accessibility, and the in-person Autumn Conference will include an extensive Exhibition that will offer yet more knowledge and resources to delegates.

Early Bird tickets from only £15. (or get the combo ticket for £40 to attend both days, 22nd June online and 28th September in person, in London)

Dr. Michael Karlfeldt: Promoting integrative Cancer Care in Europe

In this podcast episode, I had the privilege of interviewing Patricia Peat, an influential figure in the field of integrative cancer care in Europe. We delved into the significance of community collaboration in finding solutions and empowering individuals. Patricia shed light on the advancements in functional testing and the scientific nature of integrative cancer care, dispelling the misconception that integrative approaches lack research.


During our discussion, we explored the limitations of tumor-centered treatment in standard oncology and the importance of considering the body's metabolism and promoting metabolic flexibility in cancer treatment. We also touched on the origins of chemotherapy from mustard gas and the need for a more effective approach.


Patricia shared her personal journey, recounting her realization of the flaws in the medical system and her growing concern for patients undergoing chemotherapy without guidance on recovery or improving their quality of life. Inspired by a patient named Jillian, who integrated alternative treatments alongside chemotherapy with remarkable results, Patricia established Cancer Options to provide information and support to individuals seeking integrative approaches to cancer care.

Despite facing resistance from the medical community, Patricia remained committed to exploring effective strategies while cautioning against potentially harmful practices. They advocate for a more integrated and holistic approach to cancer care, empowering individuals with knowledge about their own cancer and promoting the integration of alternative approaches.


This thought-provoking podcast challenges the status quo in cancer treatment, encouraging patients to trust their instincts, question standard approaches, and take charge of their own healthcare journey. It emphasizes the importance of recognizing the limitations of certain healthcare professionals and the need for informed decision-making. The podcast also highlights the significance of individual factors, long-term effects, and achieving better overall health in cancer treatment.


Join me as we explore the growth and potential of integrative cancer care and the importance of empowering individuals in their cancer treatment journey. Don't miss out on this opportunity to gain valuable insights from Patricia Peat as she shares her expertise and passion for a comprehensive and personalized approach to cancer care.
