      Lifestyle Pathways to Better Health

      Canadian Neurovascular Health Society Presents Lifestyle Pathways to Better Health The Canadian Neurovascular Health Society is ready to assist patients with diet and lifestyle change in an intensive, comprehensive 5-day retreat designed to better manage multiple sclerosis and other neurodegenerative diseases. Diet and lifestyle programs developed by Dr. Ashton Embry, Dr. Terry Wahls, Dr. George Jelinek, and Italian researchers show improved health despite an underlying progressive neurodegenerative disease. We will present these four nutritional approaches, explain the science and rationale behind each, support individuals as they choose the diet best for their needs, and provide menu planning and meals that are consistent with these evidence-based diets. In addition, rehabilitation is a word not traditionally associated with multiple sclerosis because stopping progression and reversing damage has not been possible with pharmacological approaches to date. Research supports the use of strength and aerobic training in persons with neurodegeneratve diseases to counter fatigue, increase strength and mental sharpness, and improve functional activities of daily living. Furthermore, mindfulness is established in research as a cornerstone of rehabilitation. Accordingly, we will incorporate exercise, mindfulness and yoga into our daily retreat schedule to help individuals establish a lifelong practice. Diet and lifestyle can have profound effects on the trajectory of a chronic illness (as pointed out about 2,500 years ago by Hippocrates). There is no downside to adopting diet and lifestyle change by patients with neurodegenerative diseases and the potential benefits are monumental. As these patients well know, time is brain.  Patients and partners are invited to join us for 5 full days of knowledge empowerment, mindfulness, diet counselling and exercise at the spectacular Honeymoon Bay Lodge and Retreat Centre on Vancouver Island. This idyllic retreat centre will be dedicated to our small group of patients and facilitators. Lifestyle change involves more than just the patient; thus, partners, if applicable, are encouraged to attend. Limited to 24 participants, this retreat is designed for those facing a neurological health challenge, whether it be early in progression or at a time when a re-boot is needed. The facility is fully accessible, however, there is only one room with a roll-in shower available. Please contact us if you need this room. We will present four scientifically-researched diet and lifestyle programs: Best Bet diet - Dr. Ashton Embry, Canada The Wahls Protocol - Dr. Terry Wahls, USA OMS diet - Dr. George Jelnick - Australia and England High vegetable/low protein (HV/LP) diet - MS Rehabilitation Unit, Don Carlo Gnocchi Foundation in Milan, Italy We assembled a team of expert facilitators who will help patients and their partners achieve their health goals every step of the way.  We are currently in the final planning stages. Persons interested in finding out the latest updates should register for this event to be added to our email list for this event only. Price TBA. Cost will be based upon double occupancy. Patients attending without partners will be assigned a roommate based on selected criteria. We anticipate subsidies will be available for those in financial need.
