SUMMARY:  Inside us, food does three things: (1) fuels for energy, (2) builds matter, (3) conditions physiology.

 

Our macronutrient focus (carbs, proteins, fats) for fueling, building, and weight loss/gain is the prevailing diet and nutrition narrative in our culture. However, it is the “Conditioning” function of (nutrient-dense) foods that offer more results. MICROnutrient advantages are a blind spot for most.

 

Performance (deep inside you) is needed along the entire spectrum of physiological states (poor to peak… patient, pregnant, pedestrian, to pro athlete). Systemic and sustainable physiological gains are realized from plant foods, every day, and over time. Plant micronutrition conditions our physiology in three ways: (1) Activates, (2) Modulates, (3) Attenuates.

 

Effective food technology can help amplify our results.

 

We invite you to join us and experience proven ideas and provocative pioneers who will bring to life a new era of applied science, network physiology, and human performance nutrition. It will challenge you and compel you to adapt.

 

Attendance at this workshop is limited to the first 350 participants.

 

~ AGENDA ~

 

6:00 am – 8:00 am       Registration (Required)

 

8:00 am – 8:15 am       Welcome and Opening Remarks

Faculty:  Dotsie Bausch

Faculty:  Scott Stoll, MD

Summary:  Dotsie and Scott will get the session kicked off with a welcome and some background on why and how Plant-Based Performance is driving better gains.

 

8:15 am – 9:15 am       Game of Gains: A New Paradigm in Performance Nutrition

Faculty:         Dotsie Bausch

Jeff Olson

Scott Stoll, MD

Summary:  For decades macronutrients dominated the discussion in sports nutrition today. The new science of performance reveals that optimized, cellular, and physiologic function is dominated by micronutrients. Pulling from the new science, Jeff and Scott this session will present a new construct of sports nutrition and the food patterns that fuel performance both in competition and daily life.

 

9:15 am – 10:15 am     Energy Optimization: The Relationship Between Micronutrients and Mitochondria

Faculty:  James F. Loomis, Jr., MD

Summary:  Energy production is fundamental to performance at every level of sports and daily life. Simply put, increased energy production produces enhanced performance.  During this session, attendees will learn about the core dietary components that not only improve the efficiency of mitochondria – the powerplant of the cell – mitochondria, but help in the creation of create new mitochondria thus increasing overall energy production. 

 

10:15 am – 10:45 am  Break 

 

10:45 am – 11:45 am  The Microbiome and Optimal Immunity for Human Performance

Faculty:  Angie Sadeghi, MD

Summary:  The microbiome is more important to overall performance than we realize. Enhanced immunity for accelerated injury healing, normalization of inflammation and combating infections (especially before big events and occasions), are modulated by a healthy microbiome. This session will present the emerging evidence that demonstrates the performance enhancement, energy optimization and immune system enhancements of a healthy microbiome and how to maximize your microbiota. 

 

11:45 am – 12:45 pm  The Power of Plants in Fueling Recovery and Regeneration

Faculty:  Scott Stoll, MD

Summary:  Proper nutrition is paramount to recovery and regeneration but is often a neglected area of sports and daily nutrition. This presentation will walk attendees through the remarkable science of the gut joint axis, mobilization of stem cells, activation of cartilage regeneration and the power of an anti-inflammatory diet to improve recovery and soreness and get you “back in the game” faster than you ever thought possible.

 

12:45 pm – 2:15 pm    LUNCH / Networking 

 

2:15 pm – 3:15 pm       Razor Sharp: The Nexus of Nutrition for the Brain

Faculty:  Dean Sherzai, MD, PhD

Summary:  Reaction time, memory, focus and clarity are critical to performance and are maximized or limited by the athlete’s plate. Learn from international experts about the power of a well-designed performance nutrition program to improve your cognitive performance, in sport and in daily life, giving you the healthiest brain possible both today and as you age. 

 

3:15 pm – 4:15 pm       Dietary Supplements and Human Performance

Faculty: Daphne
Bascom, MD, PhD

Summary:  Summary:  Supplements have become synonymous with optimized human performance, but with more than 100,000 different products on the market, with varying quality and purity, how do you know what to believe?  With a clear scientific and experiential foundation, Dr. Bascom will sort through the misinformation and present today’s best evidence for safe and beneficial supplement use in human performance.

 

4:15 pm – 4:45 pm       BREAK 

 

4:45 pm – 5:45 pm       Micronutrients > Macronutrients

Faculty:  Dotsie Bausch

Faculty:  James F. Loomis, MD

Faculty:  Jeff Olson

Faculty:  Angie Sadeghi, MD

Faculty:  Dean Sherzai, MD, PhD

Faculty:  Scott Stoll, MD

Summary:  Focused on the application of optimal performance nutrition, this panel will answer key questions related to micronutrient rich foods that assist in recovery, activity specific nutrition, pre-and-post activity nutrition, anti-inflammatory foods, and the strategies for incorporating these foods in active, travel-based lifestyles. 

 

5:45 pm – 6:00 pm       Closing Remarks

Presented with collaboration between Switch4Good and The Plantrician Project.

Dr. Yu is an integrative rheumatologist who incorporates complementary medicine with traditional rheumatology. He is triple board-certified in Rheumatology, Internal Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine. He obtained his MD from Chicago Medical School and holds a Masters in Healthcare Administration and Biomedical sciences. He completed his internal medicine residency and rheumatology fellowship at Loma Linda University in Southern California. He is a graduate of the Andrew Weil Integrative Medicine Fellowship at the University of Arizona. In addition, he is certified in functional medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine.

He has a very unique perspective on autoimmune disease and arthritis as he is both a patient with arthritis and physician. Dr. Yu was diagnosed with gout at the age of 17 and later diagnosed with spondyloarthritis as well. He is able to understand his patient’s medical problems from a patient perspective. The foundation of his practice is to combine allopathic medicine with complementary medicine. He works with his patients to come up with a treatment plan that not only fights the disease but also is aligned with his patient’s goals.
