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.
We are living in health paradox - despite access to the so-called “best” healthcare practices, auto-immune, cancer, diabetes, and heart disease have grown to become chronic and pervasive killers. Profit-related goals of food providers often conflict with the health goals of the consumer, with highly-processed toxic food products frequently appearing in food chains and restaurants. Functional medicine reveals that there's a strong connection between lifestyle and disease risk - food is actually “medicine”!
A new paradigm shift is necessary to restore health – to empower ourselves with the knowledge of exactly what we are consuming. Find out which foods have the biggest impact on our health -explore the key components of the HK diet which are detrimental to your health, such as excessive carbs and toxic oils, and which substitutes can restore health.
