Brain size is shrinking, IQ is falling, mental health problems are rising. A recent EU report has declared a ‘global brain health emergency’. One in six children are neurodivergent, many with autism or ADHD. While one in four over 80 have pre-dementia - memory decline is happening for many in their 30’s. One in four adults are on anti-depressants, sleeping pills or tranquillisers. What is going wrong and how do we recover?

After 45 years of research Patrick Holford, founder of the charitable, has the answers and will show you how to:

· Improve your mood and get a good night’s sleep

· Deprogram anxiety and build stress resilience

· Free your brain from addiction (including sugar, alcohol and coffee)

· Recover your memory and rebuild the brain’s connections

· Build healthy young brains to prevent neurodivergence

At the charity they have tested and tracked over 430,000 people over the past decade with a free online Cognitive Function test that also works out your Dementia Risk Index and how to dementia-proof your diet and lifestyle.

In this two-hour seminar Patrick will show what they’ve discovered and how to break free from all these and other mental health problems with practical and doable changes to your nutrition, lifestyle and mind.

About the speaker, Patrick Holford

Patrick Holford, BSc, DipION, FBANT, NTCRP, is a pioneer in the field of nutrition. He is the author of 37 books, translated into over 30 languages and selling millions of copies worldwide, including The Optimum Nutrition Bible, The Low GL-Diet Bible, Optimum Nutrition for the Mind and The 10 Secrets of 100% Healthy People, 10 Secrets of Healthy Ageing and Good Medicine.

Patrick started his academic career in the field of psychology. He then became a student of two of the leading pioneers in nutrition medicine and psychiatry – the late Dr Carl Pfeiffer and Dr Abram Hoffer. In 1984 he founded the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION), an independent educational charity, with his mentor, twice Nobel Prize winner Dr Linus Pauling, as patron. ION has been researching and helping to define what it means to be optimally nourished for the past 25 years and is one of the most respected educational establishments for training nutritional therapists. At ION, Patrick was involved in groundbreaking research showing that multivitamins can increase children’s IQ scores – the subject of a Horizon television documentary in the 1980s. He was one of the first promoters of the importance of zinc, antioxidants, high-dose vitamin C, essential fats, low-GL diets and homocysteine-lowering B vitamins and their importance in Alzheimer’s disease prevention.

Patrick is the Founder of the Food for the Brain Foundation and on the board of trustees, and a Director of the Brain Bio Centre, the Foundation’s treatment centre that specialises in helping those with mental health issues, ranging from depression to schizophrenia. He is an honorary fellow of the British Association of Nutritional Therapy, as well as a member of the Nutrition Therapy Council and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. He is also Patron of the South African Association of Nutritional Therapy. In 2014 Patrick was inducted to the Orthomolecular Medicine Hall of Fame.
