Health Seminar


By Dr. Wong Ang Peng (Naturopath Physician)
Dr Matthias Rath is the world reknowned physician and research scientist who made the ground breaking discovery connecting cardiovascular disease, cancer and many other chronic conditions to nutrient deficiencies. Dr Rath’s scientific discovery changes our understanding of the origins of heart disease. Heart disease develops because of a long term deficiency of essential nutrients in the vascular walls, not because of high cholesterol consumption through our diet. Vitamin malnourished vascular walls weaken, causing microscopic cracks and lesions to develop, which trigger cholesterol molecules that are synthesized in the liver to deposit in the cracks of the vascular walls to reinforce the weakened structures.

Dr Rath’s recent scientific breakthrough points to the connective tissue integrity as a critical factor for blocking the invasion and spread of cancer cells. Understanding the mechanism by which cancer cells spread (metastasize), and later successfully developing a method to control them, Dr Rath has contributed a quantum leap forward to the path to defeating cancer.
Dr Wong Ang Peng
Dr. Wong is a professional speaker on health subjects especially chronic and degenerative diseases. He has won awards for his work on promoting natural medicine and health and the spreading of scientific knowledge in Malaysia and the Asian region.


By Dr Romy Paredes (MD, CMT)

The most frequent cause of cellular malfunction is a chronic deficiency of essential cellular nutrients particularly vitamins, amino acids, minerals and trace elements, these cellular nutrients are the raw materials in all the biochemical processes that each cell of the human body undergoes.

Some well defined beliefs and principles distinguish the orthomolecular practitioner from orthodox health practitioner. These principles actually are an important part of our professional identity.
Dr Romy Paredes

By Dr Biju Negi (Programme Coordinator - Food Sovereignty and Ecological Agriculture Programme, Pesticide Action Network Asia and the Pacific)

The presentation will cover how GE is bad for the health of the people, animals, soil and water. The impact of GE on food and agriculture, and how that impact is a matter of concern to all of us, and our future generations. GE is bad science, and how transnational corporations engaged in GE promotion have paid scientific research to suit their own narrow commercial interest, at a great cost to humanity. The presentation will also cover how GE is related to anti natural health.
Dr Biju Negi
Dr. Biju Negi is a professional writer and consultant on agricultural issues and a trainer in writing and documentation. He is an activist in farmer movements and one of the founder members of a non-formal collective of small farmers and activists called Save Seeds Movement in Uttarakhand, Himalaya.


By Ms Saroja Theavy Balakrishnan (Health Consultant & Writer)

Natural medicine is based on natural laws, or God-made laws, and has been in practise by civilisations and various cultures since time immemorial. It is about living and eating healthily and good health should be reflected in the physical, mental and emotional plain. Unfortunately, there is so much confusion that people fail to realize that living healthily without chronic illness is possible. Millions of young people die premature death. The middle age and the old are usually stricken with all kind of illness until they were confronted by heart attack, stroke, organs failures or cancer. Practically many of them suffer and go through a journey of degenerative health before they die.

The British House of Common Report (March, 2005) made compelling report about the pharmaceutical industry which controls the medical establishment. The industry controls the media and use NGOs as fronts to propagate and serve their hidden agenda to medicalise the masses. They do business with disease and use the human body as their market place. Drug sales of various types amount to multi-billions of dollars per year. Under the shroud of so-called ‘evidence based medicine’ , the industry promotes the use of synthetic drugs weffects to treat diseases, leaving behind long traits of untold iatrogenic diseases. Causes of most diseases are unknown and genetics are to be blamed. Never, never depend on the establishment to bring you good health, but you, and you alone.

Ms Saroja
Ms Saroja is a much sought after speaker on natural health. She passionately articles and short stories on social and health issues, winning many awards.

She is actively assisting The Dr Rath Foundation Works in the South East Asian region.

Condors at KLPac

images by Haru

Brainchild of Ryohei Kondo, Condors has conquered their homeland turning the Japanese contemporary dance scene on its head. In fact, tickets for one of their performances in Tokyo were snapped up the very day it went on sale! And it doesn’t stop there – Condors Mania has spread all over the world and the troupe often performed to sell out shows overseas as well.

Wherever they go, their performance always sends audiences spinning through amazement, shock, and laughter. From their trademark Japanese high-school uniform outfits to their liberal use of shtick and overblown video imagery, this zany bunch redefines what a dance performance can and should be! The troupe is also notorious for its satirical treatment of Japanese pop culture.

Reviewer Jennifer Dunning wrote, "If there had been an applause meter on the premises, the meter would have very likely swung off the high end...An irrepressible, irreverent bunch of nicely ill-assorted sizes and presences, the men were impressive in their comic timing and knowledge of dance styles” (2000, The New York Times).

Conquest of the Galaxy: Jupiter premiered in New York City in 2001 to great success and toured to Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Miami, Costa Rica, Chile, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, Indonesia, Australia, Singapore and, of course, Malaysia. As a follow up to Jupiter, Condors premiered Conquest of the Galaxy: Mars in Europe in 2007 and it toured successfully to London, Paris, Rome and Brazil, gaining them legions of fans along the way.

Like Jupiter, Mars is made up of short scenes in omnibus style and integrates commercials, animation film, short plays and of course, dance. Since its premiere, Condors has updated and added new materials to Mars. The KL audience will have the opportunity to see the improved version of Mars. On the surface, the scenes seem to be meaningless connected but at the very end, it will bring back nostalgic memories and remind you of the things that are important in life.

The dance troupe is led by Artistic Director and Choreographer Ryohei Kondo. Kondo has danced with a wide range of leading choreographers such as Kota Yamazaki, Kuniko Kisanuki, Toshiko Takeuchi and Doug Varone. His choreography credits include The Fingers are Too Fat to Reach (1998), Love Parade (1999), Dream in a Dream (1999 – collaboration with Japanese traditional dancer Sengiku Bando), the film The Happiness of the Katakuris (2001 - directed by Takashi Miike) and a stage production of Faust (2004 – directed by Akira Shirai).

Kondo is also active in organising and hosting dance workshops all over Japan. In recognition of his work, he won the Terayama Shuji Award at the 4th Asahi Performing Arts Award for most promising young artist.

Condors solid track record include Kissing the Sun Series I-V (1996-1999), 2000 Virgin (1999), Spring Man (2000), Light My Fire (2000) and 2000 Darling (2000). Their collaboration with the Bel Canto Orchestra, led by French musician Pascal Comelade, at the Yokohama Landmark Hall (2000), was critically acclaimed.

Apollinaire Scherr commented "...when the flabby men and fit men, tall men and short men, men who can dance and men who, adorably, really can't, appear on the Tokyo stage in nerdy schoolboy uniforms as the Condors, the girls show up in droves and shriek happily...The Condors seamlessly blend dance numbers with video, puppetry and physical theater." (2001, The New York Times).

ABOUT CONDORS - contemporary dance company

Condors, the all male dance company that has turned the Japanese contemporary dance scene on its head, is electric, sweaty, outrageous and hysterical.

Ryohei Kondo started the company in the fall of 1996, and barely a year later its performance from the "Kiss the Sun" series at Theatre Fonte in Yokohama was a major success, gaining much attention from presenters and sponsors. The next year they opened the Tokyo Globe Theater's spring festival with a continuation of the "Kiss the Sun" series. The dance press enthusiastically reviewed the performance, which also set ticket sales records for the theatre. Later, this huge successful show was broadcasted on three separate occasions on SkyPerfect TV, the Japanese satellite television network. Soon Condors was in high demand and touring throughout the country.

In December of the same year, Kyoto Art Complex 1928 commissioned Condors to create a new piece for the inauguration of their new theatre. This was followed quickly by a tour of several venues in Tokyo and Osaka area. The Tokyo shows sold out on the day they were put on sale, leading to quick arrangements for additional performances. In January 2001, SkyPerfect TV continued to demonstrate the popular enthusiasm for the group by broadcasting a special feature on Kondo Ryohei and his work, and in the following month Condors' run of performances at the famed Apple Theater in Shinjuku drew sold out audiences every night. In the mean time, audiences in other countries were also catching "Condors mania."

In January 2000, they took their first trip abroad to the showcase at the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) Conference in New York. The New York Times said, "If there had been an applause meter on the premises, the meter would have very likely swung off the high end" and called them "wonderfully nutty" and "an irrepressible, irreverent bunch of nicely ill-sorted sizes and presences" (January 15, 2000). They immediately received inquiries from a number of presenters, and in the following year returned to the US for performances in New York and Los Angeles. These performances also sold out, and were enthusiastically covered by The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and other local press. Condors continues to move on to new territory, and will be performing in various countries throughout East Asia in the fall of 2001.

Wherever they go, Condors performances always send their audiences spinning through amazement, shock, and laughter. From their trademark school uniform outfits to their liberal use of shtick and overblown video imagery, this company redefines what a dance performance can and should be. It may seem that they are more interested in presenting a highly entertaining performance than pushing the boundaries of performance art or presenting refined technique. Nevertheless, once the show is over and the laughter subsides, it becomes clear that what they have really done is redefine dance performance, its audience, and how it can be viewed. Many speak of creating a new form of dance for the 21st century, but Ryohei Kondo and Condors are doing it.
