Birmingham Cancer Convention 21 Oct 2012
The Cambridge Institute of Complementary Health held their second Cancer Convention at the Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham. The convention brought together eminent professionals both in the medical world and complementary health. We had the pleasure of attending the convention as well as nominating one of the speakers, Professor Rupert Handgretinger of the Children's Hospital, University of Tubingen in Germany. Prof. Handgretinger, who was considered the star of the show, gave an impressive lecture about the important role Natural Killer cells play in the treatment of cancer.

Other speakers included Dr Damien Downing who spoke about the different nutritional factors that can be incorporated into a cancer treatment plan involving chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy. Patricia Peat, an oncology nurse who now uses integrative therapy in her practice emphasised the case for using integrative therapy and how it can produce positive results. Renowned cancer specialist, Dr Patrick Kingsley, addressed the many causes of cancer and the various reasons why it develops.
Overall the convention was both enlightening and informative. The fact that it was attended by both professional therapists and members of the public alike highlights the growing interest in integrative therapy and the need for further education and research.

Totnes Cancer Care Conference
17th & 18th Nov 2012
Following on from the controversy of last year's conference, the Totnes Cancer Care Conference went off this year without a hitch. Deep in the heart of Devon, a dedicated team of both alternative and medical professionals came together to spread the word about the importance of taking our health into our own hands. Attending were members of the public as well as medical doctors and therapists. The main message was that as individuals it's now more critical than ever that we educate ourselves about what is happening in both the medical arena and the food industry. Dedicated scientist Dr Robert Verkerk, founder of Alliance for Natural Health gave damning evidence for the case against GMO foods. A fierce proponent for the rights of the individual to be able to make their own informed choices about their health, he drew attention to the impact that the new regulations being metered out by European Food Safety Authority will have on the nutrition industry, not to mention our rights to freedom of speech.
We heard from both doctors and therapists about how their treatment of both cancer and other degenerative disease using natural therapies either alone or in conjunction with conventional treatment resulted in greater health and faster recovery for their patients.
Overall it was a positive and educational experience. We felt it encouraging to see the growing movement and demand for more validation and attention to be given to integrative treatments.
