About this course

We have the ability to significantly change our metabolism through diet. Entering ketosis is a natural, and many say necessary, aspect of a healthy physiology. We can improve insulin function, fat metabolism, brain function, athletic performance and recovery, our gut microbiome, the inflammatory process, and much more.

The Ketogenesis and Intermittent Fasting Masterclass is giving you the practical steps to implement powerful metabolic strategies. These can have dramatic effects on many serious conditions. We will be covering the applications of low-carb, ketogenic diets and intermittent fasting in brain tumours, cancer in general, sports performance, diabetes, and many others.

Even though ketosis has deep evolutionary roots, the research and clinical utility is only recently being appreciated. It is a rapidly emerging field with huge promise.
All of your presenters are recognised thoughts leaders in their fields with considerable experience.

Your Presenters

Dr Adrienne Scheck PhD.

Dr Adrienne Scheck is an acknowledged leader in the field of metabolic alteration as an adjunct to the standard of care to improve survival and minimize side effects for patients with malignant brain tumors. To this end, her laboratory has been studying the use of ketogenic therapies including the therapeutic ketogenic diet (KD) for the treatment of malignant brain tumors. Their work has shown that the KD reduces the growth of malignant brain tumors through a wide variety of mechanisms including reductions in peri-tumoral edema, inflammation, angiogenesis and hypoxia. It potentiates the effect of radiation and temozolomide chemotherapy and enhances the anti-tumor immune response.

Dr Scheck is a graduate of the University of Rochester and she received her PhD from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Pennsylvania State University’s College of Medicine in viral oncology and viral latency before moving to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to work on AIDS-related dementia. While there she began working on therapy resistance in malignant brain tumors and moved to the Barrow Neurological Institute in 1989. She holds positions as an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology and as a faculty member of the interdisciplinary Neuroscience program at Arizona State University. In addition, she is an Associate Investigator in the Cancer Biology Program, Arizona Cancer Center at the University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ.

Dr. Dawn Lemanne MD, MPH

Dr. Dawn Lemanne is both a Stanford-trained, board-certified oncologist and a recognized authority in integrative oncology. Her southern Oregon practice combines conventional therapy with evidence-backed integrative interventions. It draws patients from around the world.

Dr. Lemanne earned an undergraduate degree in biophysics from UC Berkeley, and holds advanced degrees from UC Berkeley, Johns Hopkins University, and UC San Francisco. After an internal medicine residency at Henry Ford Hospital in inner city Detroit, she entered an oncology fellowship at Stanford University. After more than a decade as a practicing oncologist, Dr. Lemanne returned for more training, completing the University of Arizona’s flagship 2-year Integrative Medicine Fellowship in 2011.

From 2012-2013 she served on the faculty of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s integrative medicine service, the first board-certified, conventionally trained medical oncologist to hold such an appointment. She currently serves as guest faculty for the University of Arizona’s integrative medicine fellowship and the Association for Integrative Health and Medicine Fellowship.

Dr. Lemanne is the author of textbook chapters and peer-reviewed articles published in scientific journals. She speaks by invitation nationally and internationally. She practices at Oregon Integrative Oncology in Ashland, Oregon.

Patricia Daly BA Hons, dipNT, mBANT, rCNHC.

Patricia Daly is an internationally recognised Nutritional Therapist. Following her cancer diagnosis, she left her corporate career and started studying nutrition, specialising in the area of Integrative Cancer Care. As a Swiss native, she regularly attends training courses in Switzerland/Germany, including at the renowned Tumor Biology Center in Freiburg, Germany.

Her network with both complementary and orthodox health professionals allows her to stay up-to-date with current research and best practice. She is also a member of the British Society for Integrative Oncology.

In January 2014, her first eBook, “Practical Keto Meal Plans for Cancer”, was published. It has since been purchased by both cancer patients and healthcare professionals, including oncologists, from all over the world. And in spring 2016, she published a bestselling book “The Ketogenic Kitchen” on the benefits of the low carb and ketogenic diet for cancer patients, which she has co-written with Irish chef and entrepreneur Domini Kemp.

Professor Grant Schofield

Grant Schofield is Professor of Public Health, and Director of the Human Potential Centre at AUT Millennium. His research and teaching interests range from understanding and improving lifestyle behaviours such as sleep, nutrition, and physical activity, to wellbeing epidemiology and human performance.

Professor Schofield takes a “think outside the box” approach to his work in tackling the big health problems of our times. He is known for “challenging current beliefs” in his field. His current project base and large group of talented postgraduate thesis students show an exciting range of these challenges.

One of his current research projects challenges conventional nutritional beliefs though low carb high fat nutrition. This is an exciting set of projects that looks carefully at basic human metabolic health and what foods support that (or not). We believe it is likely that the low fat diet approaches and lipid hypothesis perpetuated over the least several decades may have caused more harm than good. Our emerging work shows the problems of hyperinsulinemia (chronically high insulin) in the development of chronic diseases. We have several feasibility trials underway in different groups looking at how people respond and adhere to diets which are low in carbohydrate but high in fat. These may have therapeutic outcomes across a range of metabolic issues from overweight to diabetes to cardiovascular disease.

Cliff Harvey ND

Cliff Harvey is a registered clinical nutritionist and naturopath. He has been coaching people ranging from world champion athletes through to the chronically and acutely unwell to perform at their best, since the 1990s. Cliff was one of the first practitioners in Australasia to start working with low-carb and ketogenic diets in the late 1990s and has pioneered their use in this part of the world.

His masters research focussed on the use of medium chain triglycerides to mitigate keto-flu and encourage faster induction of ketosis, and his PhD research is focussed on identifying markers of carbohydrate tolerance.

Cliff is the founder of the Holistic Performance Institute, a private post-tertiary college, and is a doctoral candidate and researcher at AUT University. He is also the author of six books including his latest release The Carbohydrate Appropriate Diet and the upcoming The Keto-Appropriate Diet.
