1st International Conference on "Natural Health and Nutrition. A Scientific Approach"

According to Hippocrates "a therapy's highest aspiration is the immediate, gentle and permanent restoration to good health as well as the disappearance of an illness in its entirety in the fastest, most correct and most harmless way". A similar approach is being adopted by an increasing number of people from all over the world who are searching for alternative practices in health and nutrition in their efforts to find remedies for both old and new physical and psychological health problems.

According to many modern alternative therapy practitioners, physical symptoms that are caused by an illness or a disorder must be considered in relation to the emotional, intellectual and spiritual well-being of a person. This relationship helps the therapist to go deeper into the patient's health problem and then to apply the necessary holistic therapies and dietary methods. If these practices are applied in combination with traditional medicine they will make up an integrated approach to patients, restoring them fully by healing not only the symptoms but also their causes.

The aim of the 1st International Conference on "Natural Health and Nutrition. A Scientific Approach", which will take place for the first time in Athens in October 2007, is to deal with this subject within the framework of scientific research and knowledge and at the same time to make known the extremely valuable contribution made by the alternative methods and the dietary therapies in maintaining good health whilst showing respect to people and to Mother Earth precious goods.

Scientists and researchers from all over the world will take part as speakers at the conference and will give answers to hot questions that concern many people whilst presenting new scientific facts that will immediately be applied in practice and will contribute to the achievement of the conference's goals.

Moreover, the general public today expects health professionals to keep them informed about natural therapies and to apply suitable dietary therapies. We therefore invite all those who are directly or indirectly involved in this sensitive and essential area to be present and contribute to the success of this conference.
