Slogan: Do what others don't want to do (such as free public education); Do what others can not do (such as international collaboration and system design)


Strategies

1) Focusing on mental illnesses

There are so many people working on chronic disease management, such as weight loss, diabetes and hypertension. However, very few works with mental illnesses, such as autism, depression, anxiety. And many medical conditions are so challenging due to the lack of knowledge and discrimination, such as Alzheimer's disease. That is exactly we focus on.

2) Only one topic per year

It is easy to do an International forum. It is not hard to do workshops either. But in order to truly help the people who suffer, we need a well-designed system and integrate the required resources to make sure we can achieve the goal. It takes time to do education. It takes time to put all kinds of resources. It takes time to have well-trained health professionals who can provide the right service. One topic per year is just right.

3) Start from the forum/ End with the Forum

On 10/27/2017, the 1st International Forum on Nutritional Medicine was hosted in Tianjin. It was a great success. With all the hard work we have done before the forum, over 500 health professionals from all over the country got together to discuss what we should and can do in autism spectrum disorders in China.

What we have done during and after the forum : 1) First one to define nutritional medicine; 2) First one to host international nutritional medicine forum; 3) First to bring biomedical treatment especially nutritional intervention to China;4) First to do biomedical training for pediatricians here in China; 5) First to develop SCD ( Specific Carbohydrate Diet ) legal standard; 6) First to build the strong relationship with top companies in the field to form a close circle from agriculture, diet, toxins testing, research and development of SCD legal snacks, clinic testings and treatment plan to package plan; 7) First to develop NCAS online courses for parents and professionals. 8) Trained  over 500 physicians and nutritionists on biomedical treatment for autism. 9) First 6 NCAS consultants started to provide professional service for the clients. 10) First to develop the gene testing panel specific for brain optimization with Guidon Pharmaceuticals. 11) Formed partnership with physicians and neuroscientists to start the research of ASD. 12) First book on SCD Diet & Lifestyle will be published before the 2018 forum.

So far, the system design has been shown to be successful. The NCAS team has been built and kept growthing. Over thousands of parents heard about our talk and enjoyed our free services. We will report all the progress on 2018 IFNM forum to officially announce we move to next topic---Alzheimer's disease for 2018.

4) Form strong partnership with the right people

With the support from ISNM (International Society for Naturopathic Medicine), we have made a lot of progress. We have already expanded our partnerships to same-minded people in Research, Clinic, Health professinal training, Hospitals, Agriculture, Service providers and so on. We believe we can achieve our goals with our team!
