Nutrition plays well-known effects on physical health and wellness - including cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, and cellular conditions. Less well-known are the effects of nutrition on mental health and wellness - including depression, anxiety, pain, and burnout. The emerging fields of “Psycho-Neuro-Immunology” and “Nutritional Psychology” describe the biochemical/physiological basis for the behavioral/psychological effects of nutrition and lifestyle choices to impact mental wellness – and how those changes in psychology impact changes in physiology. Scientists and clinicians have known for years about the “comorbidity” of psychological conditions such as depression, anxiety, and stress with physical conditions such as heart attack, back pain, and weight gain. It has only been within that last few years that we have begun to appreciate that these conditions are “comorbid” because they share much of the same biochemistry across the entire gut-heart-brain-axis. My presentation at the 2020 I-ACT Convention on June 26 in Kissimmee Florida, will describe research-supported nutrition modalities and lifestyle interventions to positively co-influence mental wellness and physical health through the gut-heart-brain-axis. The new scientific paradigm is that many physical “body” issues (cardiovascular and metabolic) are actually related to the brain (mental wellness) and the biome (microbiome and gut health), and the connection between them is critical to achieving a healthy lifestyle. By naturally restoring coherence across all three aspects that are out of balance across the gut-heart-brain axis, we can help people feel better (mental wellness) and help them optimize physical health and performance.

Today Holistic Iridology® is recognized as the world’s leading edge system, researched and developed by Dr. Pesek. Every tissue structure in the body has a reflex in the irises. All structures relate to specific thoughts and emotions, whether conscious or subconscious. Dr. Pesek will explain the foundation of Holistic Iridology®. Special emphasis will focus on common colon health conditions and how they can be easily interpreted in the irises without diagnosing. Most diseases have a connection to colon health, and colon health begins with thoughts and emotions. Holistic Iridology® is a powerful system of analysis to get to the root causes of illness and disease.
