fxMed Bal Human Microbiome Seminar

Common Dysfunctions of the gut in chronic illness and how to support them by balancing the Microbiome.  All chronic illnesses start or are perpetuated by a dysfunctional gut. Effectively treating these conditions requires a clear understanding of the gut associated pathology driving the disease.

Presenters: Kiran Krishnan, a Research Microbiologist and Tom Bayne, a Chiropractic Physician and Public Speaker.

Part One – The Research by Kiran Krishnan.  A decades worth of microbiome research has elucidated these pathologies and a careful review of the literature reveals potentially effective treatments. In this talk you will learn about the most common dysfunctions of the gut that drives most chronic illnesses we face. You will also learn about the most effective solutions to address these dysfunctions. You will learn how seemingly unrelated disorders can have the same etiology.

Part Two – Clinical Findings by Dr Tom Bayne There are many gut-healing programs available to practitioners, but often times those therapies are incomplete and ineffective. Healing the gut is a multifactorial process that requires several layers of therapy in order to achieve total gut restoration. Find out how you can use Microbiome Labs products to individualize treatment based upon patient history and symptoms.

After this presentation, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe how the gut microbiome is involved in various chronic diseases
  • Explain the connection between mucosal inflammation and chronic disease
  • Identify dietary and lifestyle factors that negatively impact the gut microbiome
  • Discuss actionable changes that any person can make to increase diversity of the gut microbiome
  • List nutrients that can significantly repair intestinal barrier functionDescribe the purpose of each layer of the Total Gut Restoration system
  • Explain the standard dosing protocol for the main Total Gut Restoration products
  • Identify conditions or symptoms that may benefit from a customized protocol
  • Discuss various ways of individualizing the Total Gut Restoration system

Nutrisearch webinar

What will the Focus be?
Most alternative physicians are aware that the HPA axis is intimately involved in the stress response. The purpose of this presentation is to review how stresses of different types affect the HPA axis in diverse ways according to the type, severity, and duration of the stress. This presentation will not only cover the effects of chronic high and low cortisol, but also the specific illnesses and health conditions that involve high and low cortisol responses to the HPA axis.

Included in this presentation will be a section on successful comprehensive treatment protocols for HPA axis dysfunction in cases with chronically high and chronically low cortisol, ending with a section on how to treat the difficult patient. By the end of this presentation, attendees should have a deeper and clinically relevant understanding of the HPA axis and its involvement in various health conditions along with effective treatment protocols they can use in their own practices.

Presented by: Dr. James Wilson (Ph.D.) James L. Wilson DC, ND, Ph.D. is an American doctor, author, and presenter in the fields of naturopathic medicine and endocrine function, with particular expertise in stress and its impact on health. Dr. Wilson is the physician and researcher who presented adrenal fatigue as a distinct, diagnosable syndrome, coining the term “adrenal fatigue” in 1998.

Dr. Wilson is the Originator and Formulator of Doctors Wilson’s Original Formulations brand dietary supplements, which are targeted to help the body cope with chronic stress. He is the founder of ICA Health, a company that provides these supplements and education about the physiological effects of stress on health professionals.

HPA Immune Dys

Mitigating Stress Toxicity on Immune Function

The impacts of stress are far reaching, often overlooked are the damaging effects of stress on the immune system. This poses a significant risk to immune health with 1 in 3 Australian adults reporting that severe stress affects their daily lives!  

Although the acute stress response is designed to provide protection against various threats, the impacts of chronic unresolved stress on immune function range from: increased inflammation, suppression of immune cell numbers and their function, and altered T1 - T2 balance, thus chronic stress becomes immuno-pathological.2 This may eventually present clinically as recurrent or stealth infections, atopic conditions or auto-immune diseases. More recently, our understanding of the complex interactions between the endocannabinoid (eCB) system and stress has evolved. Teneille will present emerging evidence on the significant bidirectional effects of eCB and stress, and further impacts on CB2 receptors present in immune cells, modulating cytokine release and immune cell migration.

In this webinar:

  • Differential discussion of acute versus chronic stress and their impacts on immunity
  • The role of the endocannabinoid system in both stress and immune activity
  • Fundamental diet and lifestyle practices for neuroimmunological health
  • Effective prescribing of nutrients and herbs to minimise the effects of chronic stress and promote immune balance

bWellness bioregulatory

What is BioRegulatory Medicine?
BioRegulatory Medicine is the study of therapies that support regulatory change and is self sustaining after a period of treatment. An approach to health care that is being validated more and more as we research into the complex systems of BioRegulatory control.

Aspects that will be addressed:

  • The Microbiome & gut health
  • Critical Magnesium research
  • Immune modulation
  • pH regulation
  • Detoxification

Fundamentals of Homotoxicology: Homotoxicology is an extensively researched practice, that studies the influences of toxic substances in the human body, where symptoms and disease are seen as a result of the biological resistance to toxic substances.

3 pillars of Homotoxicology:

  • Drainage & Detoxification
  • Immune modulation
  • Cell & Organ Support

PH –  The Impact of pH on the Body and Gut 
You will learn about the importance of the pH in regard to the whole biological system. The gastro-intestinal microbiome hosts more than 500 species, each thriving under very specific pH conditions needed for enzymatic activity and microbial regulation. It is well known that even a slight shift in pH has a profound effect on the immune system and inflammatory responses.

Despite probiotic supplementation, many pathogenic microbes and even those normally found in our gut are becoming overgrown in a disrupted pH micro-environment. Without addressing the underlying condition of the mucosal terrain, the benefits of anti-microbial or antibiotic agents for dysbiosis, are at best short-term and may possibly even exacerbate the problem.

 Bioconcepts autoimmunity logo

Environmental toxins, hormonal imbalance and suboptimal nutrition can all drive mitochondrial dysfunction and faulty cell signalling. The resulting metabolic disruption triggers inflammatory cascades and an erratic immune response. Long term consequences include autoimmune diseases, subfertility and other chronic illnesses. Autoimmune disease and subfertility cause extreme emotional and physical distress. Common protocols can provide inconsistent results which often leave both practitioners and patients feeling overwhelmed and disheartened. Immunometabolism describes the physiological connection between mitochondrial function and immune system activation. An understanding and appreciation of this emerging concept equips practitioners to objectively evaluate which patients may respond to conventional approaches and those that may not.

Concepts to be explored:

  • Key contributors to infertility in both males and females
  • Mechanisms that drive mitochondrial dysfunction and faulty cell signalling
  • Immune cell fate and function in response to alterations in metabolic pathways
  • Activation of chronic inflammation and its role in autoimmunity

Learn how to:

  • Assess mitochondrial health
  • Identify and reduce the impact of the most important drivers of mitochondrial dysfunction
  • Use specific diet, lifestyle and nutrients to influence mitochondrial signalling and improve patient outcomes in subfertility, autoimmunity and other chronic illnesses

Presenter: Dr Rhona Creegan PhD, BSc Biomedical Sciences, MSc Clinical Biochemistry, MSc Nutrition Medicine.

National summit Biopractica logo

Live and in-person, International world-renowned speakers and experts in their field: 
Professor Lynda Frassetto, MD:  Professor of Medicine in the Division of Nephrology at the University of California, San Francisco (USCF). Professor Jürgen Vormann:  Professor at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, University Hospital Centre in Berlin. Plus highly experienced expert naturopathic clinicians in practice Vanessa Hitch/Paul Kern.

Gain expert clinical support and preventative strategies for wide-ranging issues:

  • Kidney disease and its treatment 
  • Cognitive dysfunction Loss of muscle mass 
  • Pain syndromes 
  • Abnormal cell growth
  • Mental health 
  • Connective tissue disease 
  • Osteoporosis

Topic 1: The trade-off hypothesis as a driver of acid-induced organ system damage and ageing. International speaker & world expert on nephrology  Professor Lynda Frassetto M.D.

Every part of the body relies on pH balance to maintain homeostasis, tolerating only very small shifts before organ system damage occurs. Interestingly, ageing, renal dysfunction and metabolic acidosis all share similar physiological attributes, with the kidneys often being overlooked as a target for alkaline therapy, which shows promise for reversing kidney disease.

Discover:

  • Ground-breaking new research on factors affecting ageing such as klotho and renal function
  • The hidden link between telomeres, metabolic acidosis and life-span
  • Dietary components needed to achieve and maintain the optimal acid-base status for humans.

Topic 2: Mineral leaching, pain syndromes, connective tissue disease, and chronic disease development. International speaker & world expert on magnesium & pH Professor Jürgen Vormann.

The risk of mineral imbalance throughout the life-span is profound. As we age and consume an acidogenic Western diet, our mineral storesdiminish, leaving us metabolically challenged, acidic and depleted in energy. Exciting new research links mineral disturbances in magnesium and pH, to wide-ranging issues, such as pain syndromes, connective tissue diseases and abnormal cell growth.

Learn:

  • Why mineral leaching, in particular magnesium, is an underestimated risk for people of all ages, not just the elderly
  • About extracellular acid-sensing channels as a therapeutic target for the successful management of pain syndromes
  • How to quickly address hidden factors in chronic disease progression from connective tissue degeneration to abnormal cell growth.

Topic 3: metabolic ph challenges and prescribing for a cognitive ‘health-span’ clinically experienced natural medicine presenters Vanessa Hitch/Paul Kern

Surprisingly, cognitive decline begins much sooner that what might be expected. Subtle metabolic dysregulation signs can also be seen earlier, before cognitive symptoms manifest, suggesting these are not merely ‘age’ issues. True preventative medicine begins with a multi-system approach to balance physiology and function and build metabolic resilience to future proof brain function, ensure mental health and improve life quality.

Explore:

  • The link between brain pH, and how to prescribe for present and future cognitive and mental wellness
  • Successful clinical strategies for reducing key markers, such as advanced glycation end products (AGEs) amyloid proteins and oxidative stress
  • Prescribing tools for optimising your clients mitochondrial energy production and improving their total health-span.
