Paul Taylor (Australia) is going to be a very busy man this conference!
He will be delivering both a 3 hour lecture/workshop and a 90 minute lecture
Sharpening The Axe (90 minutes)
We do not have a ‘healthcare’ system in this country, we have a ‘sickcare’ system. This is reflected by the fact that 93% of all Government spending on healthcare is for tertiary treatment – with a large percentage of that being on drugs. It is undeniable that there has been a recent explosion in lifestyle diseases, with existing epidemics in obesity and diabetes and a predicted exponential increase in the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease and other mental illnesses.
Using data from a recent clinical trial conducted in conjunction with the Brain Sciences Institute at Swinburne University, Paul will demonstrate the multitude of benefits to the Body and Brain from positive lifestyle intervention. He will then go on to explore the mutually interdependent pathways between Body and Brain health and performance, which involve complex interactions between the environment, gene expression, brain function and human behaviour. Taken together, the data and underlying physiology lead any sane individual to the following conclusion: a person who does not take time for exercise and positive lifestyle rituals is akin to the axeman who does not take time to sharpen his axe.
Cavemen in the 21st Century (3 Hours)
If you look back at human evolution, it is clear to see that humans become the dominant species on earth by adapting best to the environment. However,in the last 100 years in the industrialised nations, we have now changed the environment, and to such an extent that we are no longer Masters of it. This talk looks at how modern life has had profound influences on gene transcription, metabolism, stress responsiveness and brain function, and offers clear strategies for becoming Masters of Modern life.
Paul is a very gifted and entertaining presenter that is not afraid to think outside the box
