ATTENTION FOOD and HEALTHCARE EDITORS

The Canadian Holistic Nutrition Conference announced today Feeding Minds: Mental Health & Nutrition Gala Reception to be held on April 25, 2008 from 6:30 to 10:30 pm at The CNIB Centre, 1929 Bayview Avenue, Toronto.

Recent statistics provided by Colombia University indicate that bipolar disorder has become a veritable epidemic. Some psychiatrists suspect that under broad definitions, childhood bipolar disorder may be more prevalent than autism - affecting between one and two percent of all children. What has led to this upsurge? Are there answers to this in our current lifestyle?

Mental health has become a bigger burden to the health care system than cancer and heart disease. Forty years of published research has shown most mental illness is related to nutritional imbalances and deficiencies, and nutrition is the key to mental health.

Benedict Carey, in his New York Time's article entitled Bipolar Illness Soars As A Diagnosis for the Young" writes "children's treatments almost always included medications." What healthier, non-toxic, treatments are available?

Join us on April 25th for a Gala Evening featuring Margot Kidder as she recounts her triumph with bipolar disorder using vitamin, minerals and nutrition. Rosalie Moscoe, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, will present the latest research on nutrition breakthroughs for mental illness.

Feast on a delicious organic whole food menu designed by Chef Gary Hoyer. Enjoy local organic and/or natural local wine and beer tasting (yes, they have health benefits too!). Visit with thirty health industry exhibitors and learn cutting-edge health information.

This is event, hosted by the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition Alumni Association, is a Benefit to raise proceeds towards holistic nutrition programs and programs for the blind at the CNIB.
