About Us

Dear Friends,

The “first International Conference on Nutraceuticals and Chronic Diseases” (1st INCD-2016) was held at Cochin, Kerala, India from September 09-11, 2016 and 2nd International Conference on Nutraceuticals and Chronic Diseases (2nd INCD-2017) from 1st to 3rd September 2017 was organized at Bogamllo, Goa, India. We are pleased to mention that there was an enormous response from delegates all across India and different parts of the world and these events turned out to be a grand success. Continuing with the traditions we are glad to announce that we are organizing our 3rd International Conference on Nutraceuticals and Chronic Diseases (3rd INCD-2018) from 14th to 16th September 2018 at Rishikesh, Dehradun, Uttrakhand, India as Uttrakhad has been epicentre for Yoga and Ayurveda.

Extensive research over last two  decades has revealed that most chronic diseases are caused by the dysregulation of multiple genes.  However, most of the drugs designed by man (pharmaceutical companies) are highly specific and exhibit high affinity to specific and single target.  Because most chronic diseases are multi-genic, such drugs are not likely to be very effective and exhibit side effects when taken for long period of times. In contrast, most drugs designed by “mother nature” are multi-targeted, highly effective over long-term and exhibit minimal side effects.  Thus it is not too surprising that until very recently, almost 80% of all drugs had their roots in natural products, some of which are also referred to as “Nutraceuticals”. The history of these nutraceuticals goes back to thousands of years as indicated by “Ayurveda” (science of long life), “Unani”, “Siddha”, “Homeopathy”, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and other ancient treatments.

The current conference is designed to explore the scientific basis for the “Role of nutraceuticals in chronic diseases”. Nutraceuticals derived from spices, dietary agents, and medicinal plants will be included. Chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, cancer, mental disorders, arthritis, cardiovascular, pulmonary, and infectious diseases will be covered. Topic such as epigenetics, biofilms, microbiome, and omics; and their changes by nutraceuticals will also be covered. Scientists who are totally devoted to these topics will be invited from around the world.

This meeting is going to be a global event with opportunities for networking and sharing of ideas with colleagues from various countries in the world. The delegates include scientists, nutritionists, allopathic, ayurvedic, homeopathic, unani, siddha and traditional medicine practioners, delegates from various nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals industries and research students from all over the world.

Furthermore, national and international delegates will have an exciting indulgence to the rich culture, traditions and geographical beauty of the traveler’s paradise, ”Rishikesh”.

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is our great honor to invite you to participate in the 3rd International Conference on Nutraceuticals and Chronic Diseases to explore and promote research on Nutraceuticals in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases.

With all the best regards
On behalf of the Organizing Committee
