Speakers will address how omega-3 fatty acids remain the cornerstone of health; further supported by research showing how diet and lifestyle affect lipoprotein balance in the body and how an imbalance affects heart health as well as neurocognitive function.  New research will discuss the importance of ketone metabolism, especially acetate in health.

Tackling Cystic Fibrosis

The NHRI is working to provide information on CF, not only from our usual method of using peer-reviewed research, but also reports from practitioners and individuals that have experience with this dreaded disease. Our goal is to provide an information exchange that will lead to more fruitful research in this area. We are doing this because natural health research on CF is at the beginning stages. Ailments like diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and osteoporosis have good research programs in place at many institutions. However, the research on CF is spread out over many countries and based on different theories. Click here to view this research.

We have  received a substantial donation to help with Cystic Fibrosis research from the Tracie Lawlor Fund, which will help expand the research in this area.  Read about the Tracie Lawlor Foundation.
