Wise Traditions Ireland 2016 Conference at Thomond Park



Wise Traditions Ireland 2016 are hosting another event in Limerick following last year’s successful conference, Wise Traditions Ireland 2016 will be held on February 6 and 7, at Thomond Park in Limerick. It will tackle some key issues with regards to healthy eating, with real fats, real food and real nutrition as the main theme.

The food we eat is a fundamental aspect of our lives, yet we seem to have lost perspective on what it takes to create a vitality that spans generations. How can we find clarity in a world increasingly confused about how to achieve robust health?

In search of the perfect diet, different foods have fallen in and out of favour over the generations. It has always been a hot topic and the narrative has always been dominated by powerful vested interests. A rising tide of researchers and well informed food experts are bucking the trend and embracing the very foods shunned by the dietary guidelines, only to experience dramatic results with conditions like diabetes, weight loss and compromised immune function.

A recent article in the Wise Traditions Ireland 2016British Medical Journal asks the question – could the “experts” be wrong? Are our current dietary guidelines driving rather than solving our chronic epidemics? This conference will give you crucial insights to help navigate this complex subject. Drawing from a huge body of research, our line-up of world class speakers will share their discoveries about the very misunderstood yet essential role that dietary fat plays in our health, and most importantly, in the health of our children.




Key Speakers at Wise Traditions Ireland 2016: Nina Teicholz, author of the New York Times bestselling book “The Big Fat Surprise – Why butter, cheese and meat belong in a healthy diet”. Dr Natasha Campbell McBride, author of Gut & Psychology Syndrome, returns with a strong advocacy message about the role fats play in healing the body. Dr Malcolm Kendrick, a Scottish MD who teaches and writes about the real cause of heart disease, Pilip Weeks, a master herbalist based in the United Kingdom. Author of “Make Yourself Better” Patricia Daly, a Swiss nutritionist living in Ireland who specialises in integrative cancer care with a focus on the Ketogenic Diet. Professor Ton Baars, a raw milk researcher John McKenna, journalist and food writer. This conference is a must for anyone on a journey of discovery about their own health. Last year’s event proved to be very popular with attendees travelling from all parts of the country and continent, to attend. This year there will be a special support of free childcare available. 

Tickets for the event cost €75 per day or €125 for two days. Ticket price includes a delicious lunch based on WAPF principles.
