Bio Practica Acid Base logo

ACID BASE BALANCE AS WE AGE – FROM START TO FINISH
Evidence suggests there are many chronic diseases associated with high acid diets, especially as we age. Health practitioners are aware that the ability to excrete acids diminishes in older populations and they are familiar with the associated signs and symptoms. However, it is now clear, from our knowledge and the research, that we must be mindful of acid-base balance throughout all stages of life

THE SPECTRUM OF LIFE EXPERIENCE
With the bulk of the research on acid-base balance (ABB) in the elderly, we need to clarify what we know about ABB across other equally important life-stages. We then know what to look for, and can make any necessary adjustments to the expectations and optimal management of all clients.

THIS PRESENTATION WILL COVER:

  • Advanced understanding of the unique acid-base balancing influences upon each life-stage: pregnancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and elderly
  • Latest research on the impact of CMMA on children – an emerging area of concern
  • A clinical conundrum – are carbs the culprits? New research on the dietary players of ABB in kids and teens
  • Breaking new ground with research on the acid-base physiology of pregnancy & the foetus
  • Latest scientific findings on the intrinsic link between ageing and acidosis
  • Practice-ready clinical tools to help you effectively assess your paediatric, pregnant and elderly patients – an extension of the ABC model
  • Outlining new interventions – from cheat sheets to remedial recipes.
DATES: 1st August Melbourne, 2nd August Sydney, 3rd August Brisbane, 18th September Adelaide, 20th September Auckland

The Great Plains logo

Elizma is both a qualified naturopath and homeopath with close to 15 years’ experience. Elizma is well known for her ability to ‘connect-the-dots’ between root cause, symptoms, and genetics, and helping people reach a better understanding of their health conditions. One of the ways she does this is by combining OAT results with genetic and other information. She has become so proficient at interpreting organic acid tests and recognising patterns that she is known as a world expert which has earned her the nickname ‘The OAT whisperer’.

She is a sought after speaker on topics relating to the microbiome, mitochondrial function, pyroluria, thyroid dysregulation, redox signaling, hepatobiliary function and of course organic acid testing. Her ability to connect
concepts together and form a complete picture has made her popular amongst both patients and practitioners, and she has worked with a variety of well-respected companies challenging practitioners to look beyond what they think they know.

What We'll Cover:

  • An introduction to the OAT and its clinical relevance. We explore some of the things to look out for to ensure we assess the clinical markers correctly.
  • We look at common markers of gut dysbiosis and how they relate to other markers on the OAT.
  • Detoxification is an important aspect of any biochemical assessment. We look at common markers that may be used to assess gallbladder and liver dysregulation in our clients.
  • We explore markers that may give us indications on hormonal and autonomic nervous system imbalances that have important roles in many cell signaling processes in the body

BioMedica Seminar Chronic Pelvic

Chronic Pelvic Pain (CPP) is medically diagnosed by the experience of persistent pain in the lower abdomen or pelvis for a minimum of 6 months’ duration, that does not occur exclusively with menstruation. It is estimated that CPP affects up to 20 percent of women aged 18-50 years in Australia. Women who experience pelvic pain without an identifiable cause can find themselves caught in the ‘revolving door’ of gynaecology services, which can be costly and disheartening. CPP has been described as a public health crisis and is a significant burden on healthcare systems. The complexity of pelvic pain, which can originate from the gynaecological, gastrointestinal, urological, musculoskeletal, immunological, neurological and psychological systems, and the cross-talk between organs, often makes diagnosis and treatment a difficult task. Consideration of the whole individual is inherent to naturopathic practice and as such, natural medicine practitioners are ideally placed to offer significant support and relief for patients suffering from CPP.

Key learning outcomes:

  • Understand the differential diagnosis of CPP arising from various body systems
  • Gain an in depth understanding of how to manage the negative clinical sequelae resulting from CPP which includes psychological, behavioral, cognitive and sexual consequences
  • Gain clinical insights into effective evidence-based strategies for managing common causes of pelvic pain including dysmenorrhea, endometriosis and pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Understand how to effectively manage patients with CPP of unknown aetiology
  • Detailed understanding of how to incorporate the latest evidence-based research within a naturopathic framework of assessment and management

Your investment includes:

  • Comprehensive presentation and seminar notes
  • Strategies to immediately implement in clinic
  • Exclusive specials on the BioMedica range
  • Certificate of attendance and 2 CPE points

Presenter: Samuel Peters (BHSc Nat) is the Education and Technical Manager at BioMedica. He is a degree qualified naturopath who brings both clinical practice and post-graduate research experience to his role in education and practitioner technical support. Samuel has always focused on taking a balanced view of healthcare, evaluating health trends for their clinical relevance and scientific rigour.

 Metagenics The Real Cause of Obesity logo

Our body fat levels are tightly regulated by a complex network of hormones and neuronal feedback systems, with every person having a body weight set-point. Emerging science is revealing that in individuals with a higher set-point, weight loss triggers physiological and behavioural responses that literally conspire against them – promoting hunger and reducing their metabolic rate. This seminar will explore the neurobiology of obesity and provide a practical, holistic, dietary and lifestyle program that helps to lower the set-point so patients achieve signifi cant and lasting weight loss.

Incorporate the latest science into your clinical practice:

  • Discover therapeutic strategies that will help lower your patient’s body weight set-point in the brain – allowing permanent weight loss.
  • Learn about the reward triggers of hyperpalatable foods and how they promote addiction-like effects in the nervous system that can sabotage weight loss efforts.
  • Get up-to-date with where the research sits regarding popular dieting strategies, such as time restricted feeding, intermittent fasting, 5:2 dieting, low carbohydrate vs. low fat, and more.
  • Find out about the gut-brain cross-talk occurring in obesity and the critically important role the microbiome plays.
  • Learn how program structure and patient support can be as important as the prescribed dietary intervention. Discover best practice strategies for weight loss and how to implement them into your clinic.

Learn about a new weight management program which includes:

  • Evidence-based dieting options, new recipes and meal plans.
  • Digital tools, offering patient support and education, exercise recommendations and more.
  • Behavioural strategies to support your patients' long-term success.

Your seminar attendance includes:
• A certificate of attendance and a fully referenced, comprehensive seminar manual.
• An overview of case studies and detailed treatment protocols.
• Technical product information.
• New Metagenics clinic support tools to assist in providing the best natural healthcare for your patients.
• A healthy and delicious meal* and a great opportunity to chat with the presenter and network with other Practitioners.
*Meal available for seminar attendees only.

BioConcepts trauma logo

Trauma is central to all mental health presentations. More than just a single “event”, it must be considered in the context of a patient’s susceptibility, co-morbidities and general health status. Here we examine nutritional medicine interventions along the trauma continuum - from desensitisation to first aid, recovery and rehabilitation.

Although the determinants of mental health are complex, the emerging and compelling evidence for nutrition as a crucial factor in the high prevalence of mental health disorders suggests that diet is as important to psychiatry as itis to cardiology, endocrinology and gastroenterology. We have all seen the patient with that familiar complaint - “Ever since that major milestone, things have not been the same”. Whether presenting with anxiety, depression, grief, injury or childhood issues, there is an underlying resonating commonality - trauma. The impact of trauma, its consequences and its subsequent recovery is often an intricate and complex story; but with the support of core nutritional strategies and clinical tools, integrated health practitioners can make a substantial impact on not only how well a patient recovers and rehabilitates mentally after trauma, but also whether
they experience any long-term psychological impact at all.

Presenter: Shilo Mason BBiomedSc (Hons) Biochemistry.
Shilo is a respected Biochemist and Naturopathic health educator with extensive training in complementary medicine. She runs a highly successful clinical practice and complementary healthcare business with experience in acute medicine and integrated psychiatry; including PTSD following stroke, military service, cardiovascular event and childhood trauma. Over the past 15 years she has presented throughout Australia and internationally to integrative medicine practitioners and scientists on a variety of topics including mental health, inflammation and nutrition. She has firsthand clinical and personal experience in the mental health space, having treated a family member back to health following a major traumatic event.

Shilo’s Biomedical background combined with her under- and post- graduate studies in pharmacology, nutrition, herbal medicine, endocrinology, psychology and biochemistry has given her a broad and thorough understanding of both allopathic and complementary medicine. She is renowned for her technical support and practitioner mentoring in the industry and her ability to identify the root cause of complicated health issues.

Learn how to:

  • Understand the commonalities within the complexity of mental health
  • Implement peri-trauma nutritional medicine interventions for the prevention of adverse mental health outcomesfollowing surgery, accident, injury or psychological trauma
  • Use nutritional medicine to promote psychological recovery and rehabilitation

Concepts to be explored:

  • Trauma as a systematic disorder
  • Preventative nutritional medicine interventions
  • Nutritional medicine as first aid
  • Optimising recovery and rehabilitation after a major milestone

Although the determinants of mental health are complex, the emerging and compelling evidence for nutrition as a crucial factor in the high prevalence of mental health disorders suggests that diet is as important to psychiatry as it is to cardiology, endocrinology and gastroenterology. We have all seen the patient with that familiar complaint - “Ever since that major milestone, things have not been the same”.
