International Metabolic Health Day to be held on October 10

On October 10, 2023, a groundbreaking event will take place that will change lives and pave the way for a healthier future. Dr. Nasha Winters and the Metabolic Terrain Institute of Health are proud to announce that they are partnering with metabolic health leaders and advocates across the globe for the first International Metabolic Health Day. This initiative, which will be a yearly event, is aimed at raising global awareness and support for metabolic health and research.

Data from a study released in 2022 paints a grim picture – only 6.8% of American adults have optimal metabolic health. From diabetes, obesity and heart disease, to cancer, Alzheimer’s, mental health, and autism spectrum disorder, the impact of metabolic health is undeniable. International Metabolic Health Day is a call to action for individuals, organizations, and communities to come together and support groundbreaking research, foster innovation, and revolutionize healthcare approaches while promoting awareness of the true driver of the pervasive problem plaguing us all.

“Metabolic health is the foundation upon which our vitality and resilience are built,” said Nasha Winters, ND, FABNO, co-author of the “Metabolic Approach to Cancer,” and Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Metabolic Terrain Institute of Health. “When our metabolism operates at its best, it supports balanced blood sugar levels, proper immune function, reduced inflammation, and it prevents us from going into the disease process. It is the key to preventing and managing chronic diseases and improving longevity. By championing metabolic health today, we can create a tomorrow where individualized health solutions are the norm, preventing disease before it begins.”

Mark your calendars for October 10, 2023, and join us in celebrating the inaugural International Metabolic Health Day. Together, we can champion metabolic health, support pioneering research, and create a completely new kind of healthcare system – one that prioritizes personalized well-being for every individual on the planet.

Dr. Nasha to Present on Light, Metabolic Health & Cancer at San Diego Symposium

Dr. Nasha Winters to speak at the Symposium for Metabolic Health/Low Carb USAThe Metabolic Terrain Institute of Health (MTIH) is thrilled to announce that Dr. Nasha Winters, ND, FABNO, renowned author, researcher, and expert in integrative cancer care, will be a distinguished speaker at the 8th Annual Symposium for Metabolic Health (SMH).

About Dr. Nasha’s Presentation

With her extensive knowledge and experience in integrative cancer care and metabolic health, Dr. Nasha has been a sought-after presenter at Low Carb USA events, and this year’s SMH Symposium will feature a dedicated session exploring the connection between cancer and metabolic disease. Dr. Nasha will be among the esteemed presenters in this session, focusing on the interplay between light, metabolic health, and cancer. Her presentation will shed light on the vital role of factors such as circadian rhythms, screen-based blue light, sleep patterns, and more.

“We often overlook key drivers of metabolic health or disease, and light is at the top of that list,” Dr. Nasha said. “In our discussion, we will explore how humans, as light sensing beings, can shape our health through exposure to different wavelengths of light.”

Dr. Nasha will highlight the significant societal shift towards an indoor lifestyle, characterized by minimal time spent outdoors and excessive screen time, and the profound impact of these changes on our mitochondrial health, which can lead to a range of conditions, especially in the context of cancer.

Expressing concern about the escalating rates of metabolic disease and obesity, Dr. Nasha emphasizes the urgent need for action.

“We need to make our message and our approaches crystal clear in order to outpace the misinformation that exists,” Dr. Nasha said. “And we really need to give patients the ability to assess their own metabolic health, and to take charge of themselves and recognize they’re far more powerful than they’ve been led to believe. Ultimately, we have to change everything, from our food supply to our education to our medical system to our insurance system.”

The 8th Annual Symposium for Metabolic Health will take place from August 17-20, 2023, in San Diego, and all followers of MTIH can take advantage of a special 20% discount on tickets, low-carb meals, and optional CME credits by using the code “DrNasha” during registration.
