CUAAHK would like to cordially invite you to our next Morningside Salon discussion with Mr. Miles Price, practitioner of Functional Medicine & Clinical Nutritionist at LifeClinic, a HK-based private health company focused on providing integrative personalized solutions for holistically optimizing health, primarily through disease prevention, as well as diagnosis and treatment for the root causes of a wide range of chronic diseases.

Share your test results online for Total Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides, and/or insulin/HbA1c, and Miles will explain the range of biomarkers which are healthy (or not), and advise dietary interventions to reduce health risks.  Learn about which types of common but very dangerous dietary fats to avoid, as well as the blood lipid science - how best to decipher blood tests results using ratios.

Conventional wisdom has implicated saturated fats as the cause for a range of maladies, including cardiovascular disease, dementia, diabetes, and stroke.  But what if the low-fat diet, which has been recommended by dietary “experts” and doctors alike, is itself the problem?  What if the “fatty” foods we’ve been denying ourselves are themselves the key to reversing the global epidemic of chronic diseases?

Miles is a new breed of healthcare provider who focuses on the importance of disease prevention and wellness maintenance, providing customized testing, diagnosis, and treatment of chronic illnesses to restore health.  Dietary science is one of his many specialties; hence he’s uniquely qualified to bust long-held myths about dietary fat and cholesterol, and help guide you towards healthier eating.

*This will be Part One in a series of Health and Wellness topics; future potentials include:

2) Poisons in Your Staple Food – carbs, PUFAs, sugars, trans-fats, and environmental toxins

3) Essential Nutrients and Supplements - healthy dietary fats, proteins, and vegetables

4) Annual Physicals – blood and diagnostic tests which really matter

5) Developing a Healthy Immune System – mitigating infections, both bacterial and viral
