    Presenter - Dave Stickland - WPA Healthcare

    Topic - Living Well Forever

    We have come to accept our physical peak as being in our 20's or 30's with the following decades seeing a slow decline in our health and well-being.

    Increasing knowledge of nutrition, exercise and metabolism means that today it is quite possible for a vast majority of us to get steadily more and more vital into our 80's and 90's which in turn means a longer happier life with a quicker decline towards our later years.

    We will be sharing current knowledge and trends in eating, diets, exercise and health maintenance. Offering ideas for eating and exercise habits and talking through what you can do, right now, with little or no extra resource to improve your health and vitality.

    The presentation will cover:

    • Why we have, despite huge amounts of money being spent on medicine and food, got larger and larger in the Developed world.
    • Why, with the massive amounts of energy going into research and pharmaceuticals are we contracting so many illnesses, from Cancer to Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
    • How you can maintain and reduce your weight without going on any diets or changing your shopping habits. And incidentally explaining why diets NEVER work in the medium to long term.
    • Why the words 'everything in moderation' may not be appropriate anymore.
    • Why dog walking is not be enough!
    • Why fat is so good for you and which ones to eat and in what quantity.
    • Where can you go from here? We will be sending you away with huge amounts of ideas and resources for you to read and watch should you choose to take your vitality seriously after our hour together.

    Dave, as well as being Healthcare Partner with WPA, is a health fanatic, Biohacker and grave dodger. With his wife Adele, who is a well-known Health and Fitness professional in the Westcountry, they have over 60 years of nutrition, health and exercise experience. The Western world is starting to release itself from the shackles of conventional medicine, realising the ?Functional Medicine? will keep the NHS and illness from your front door.

"The whole event was inspirational."

Maggie Ford

"Over the years I have been to many types of business networks including sector targeted events, however I now choose to only go to one - The Business Network Manchester. This is a coherent, friendly and excellent way to network and offers long lasting relationships. I find its an efficient use of my time and I always look forward to monthly event. Helen is always a great inspiration and ready to offer a helping hand and introductions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the network."
