Presentation 1. Recommendations for physical activity and training with ME/CFS and FM, presented by Cory Fagan
Cory and Dr. Stein have been working together for a few years offering the Stephens Protocol 2 day exercise testing. Cory will share what he is finding and how the results in individuals with ME/CFS compare to healthy individuals that he works with as part of his training facility TCR Sport Lab in Calgary. His topics include:
- “you are not faking, something is off”.
- Physiological data to support ME/CFS.
- Using heart rate and test results to “train” optimally.
- Using cyrotherapy to improve recovery from activity.
Presentation 2. Using gut bugs to be healthy and lose weight, presented by Rory Hornstein
Ever wondered how you could have managed to put on weight over the years despite dieting the entire time? Turns out our gut bugs may be creating oversized guts. That’s one of the suggestions given as to why some suffer from obesity while others don’t. Some bodies are predisposed to being that way thanks to the microbes inside them. This session will explain how microbes influence how we eat, what we eat, how we get energy from our food, protect our immune system, help us harvest calories and produce key vitamins and nutrients. Explore what we can do to cultivate and enrich the critters in our gut on the path to better health. This workshop delves into the ratchet effect and how dieting can actually make you gain weight. You will also find out what a healthy weight is and how where you wear your fat may be more important than how much fat you actually have. You will learn about the types of energy balance and how to adjust your energy balance to achieve a healthy weight goal.
