In pre-disposed individuals, immune ageing can lead to frank autoimmune disease, manifesting with chronic inflammation and irreversible tissue damage. Emerging data support the concept that autoimmunity results from ageing-induced failure of fundamental cellular processes, genomic instability, loss of mitochondrial fitness, failing proteostasis, dwindling lysosomal degradation and inefficient autophagy. 

The conference shines a spotlight on the underlying mechanisms of both autoimmunity and longevity. Many of the dietary and lifestyle interventions and evidence-based treatment protocols designed to prevent and reverse autoimmunity are the same approaches used to enhance longevity. 

Our speakers, including thought leaders such as Dr. Terry Wahls, Dr. Jason Hawrelak, Dr. Christabelle Yeoh, Professor Thomas Borody, Paul Taylor, Dr. Denise Furness, Dr. Mark Donohoe, Prof. Stephen Myers, Nicole Bijlsma & Dr. Elizabeth Steels, will unravel the sometimes-unexpected connections between gut health, mitochondrial health, hormones, genetics, fasting, autophagy, diet, stress, inflammation, movement, hormesis and autoimmune reversal and longevity pathways.  

  • Understand how diet, lifestyle and nutritional supplementation can reverse debilitating auto-immune conditions with world authority, Dr. Terry Wahls 
  • Discover the latest research on fasting and its implications for autoimmunity and longevity, presented by Prof. Stephen Myers. 
  • Learn about the auto-immune microbiome with global pioneer in gut health, Prof. Thomas Borody  

The ACNEM 2024 Annual Conference explores the latest thinking, a broad range of expertise, research, insight and practical protocols to improve patient outcomes.
