Immunonutrition: The Interrelatedness of Diet, Nutrition, the Immune System, the Microbiome, Telomeres, and Longevity

Dr. Van Dyken will discuss immunonutrition and the factors involved, as well as the many ways in which dietary choices play a role in the health of the immune system. Learn about the microbiome and what we can do to ensure that we are maintaining a healthy gut microenvironment; telomeres, why they are important, and what they mean in regards to longevity and how we can influence this; as well as dietary "biohacks" that enhance the immune system.

Born in the Netherlands and raised in Montana, Dr. Irminne Van Dyken is a general surgeon who practices at the QueenĂ¢??s Medical Center. She completed her MD degree, internship and residency at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and is board certified by the American Board of Surgery. She is a member of the American Society of Breast Surgeons, the Society of Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons and the American College of Surgeons.

Dr. Van Dyken is a passionate advocate of a whole foods, plant-based diet. She sees this as a way to prevent and treat many common maladies seen not only in the population of Hawaii but also in the entire United States of America.
She was the keynote speaker at the 2015 Healthy Lifestyle Expo in California, and spoke at the Expo this year, as well.
