Bioceuticals symposium

The 7th BioCeuticals Research Symposium: Mood, Genes and Cognition

The last seven years has seen BioCeuticals strive to develop an innovative program capable of delivering the level of depth and cohesiveness required by healthcare practitioners to better address the growing challenges of chronic and complex health conditions.

The focus of our upcoming event is research and clinical strategies for managing mood disorders, cognitive impairment and neurological disturbances. Recent epidemiological data provide evidence of a steady rise in mental and neurological disorders. In Australia, dementia is the second leading cause of death, while almost half of the total population (45.5%) experienced a mental disorder at some point in their lifetime.

The implications of this are profound, affecting not only overall health, but also impacting families, employees, employers and society at large. Genetic associations, diet, exercise, inflammation, toxicity and the gut microbiota are now recognised as some of the crucial factors that can affect brain and neurological health.

We have brought together world-leading researchers and clinicians to review the latest research. This year, our keynote speakers include Dr Dale Bredesen, Dr Jay Lombard, Ms Amanda Archibald, Dr Brandon Brock and Dr Albert Mensah. Each expert will demonstrate practical approaches to applying this rapidly growing body of knowledge to create a cohesive clinical model at Symposium 2019, Mood, Genes and Cognition. Effective treatment strategies will be offered for even the most complex cases.

 BWellness Harnessing Immune

What's happening to our immune system?
Weakened, toxic, dysfunctional and clearly confused — loss of immune competency is leading to chronic inflammation, sickness behaviour and confounding skin conditions. A loss of immune adaptation has now become a global issue in all age groups and is characterised by poor cross-talk between innate and adaptive systems and an incompetent cytokine homeostasis. This may lead to poor immune resilience, opportunistic pathogenic infections, auto-immunity or inflammatory atopic conditions of the skin, such as eczema or psoriasis.

Practitioners need innovative natural medicine solutions to restore these biologically fatigued systems.  Research indicates specific natural bioactive molecules have immune modulating activity when needed but remain immune neutral when not required. Beta-glucans, for example, are true biological response modifiers.

Biological response modifiers show promise for reducing fatigue & improving quality of life 
Balanced cytokine activity is important for healthy immune cell signalling, during and following infections. Their release affects the behaviour of all cells and when dysfunctional, can lead to detrimental and cyclic inflammatory cascades affecting neuro-immune systems associated with fatigue, poor mood and somatic syndromes.

Biological response modifiers support exactly at the point of weakness without unnecessary or inappropriate stimulation, working to improve immune adaptivity and resilience.

An important event where you will discover:

  • How to improve immune intelligence — when to stimulate and when to modulate
  • Effective natural medicine treatments for immune related skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis
  • Natural medicines that are fast fatigue fighters
  • Why the gut is always involved when there are immune challenges

Dates & Cost: 9th - 18th May.  Early bird $70 valid until Wed 13th March.

Menopause BioMedica logo

Refresh and renew your expertise
Key learning outcomes:

  • Treatment approach for chief complaints of perimenopause and menopause
  • Risk assessment tests and tracking of future disease
  • Review of the most common conventional interventions
  • Discuss risks and benefits of conventional HRT and bio-identical hormones
  • Review latest research on the most potent botanicals and nutraceuticals for menopausal symptoms management
  • Outline important lifestyle modifications for greater treatment success
  • Case management examples and sample protocols for common problems in menopause

Webinar synopsis: The perimenopausal and menopausal period in a woman’s life is the result of numerous biological changes, resulting in symptoms that can range from mild to severe and debilitating. Symptoms such as hot flushes, anxiety, mood disturbances and altered sleep patterns, among others, significantly impair quality of life. Since it is estimated that the perimenopausal period can last up to a decade, practitioners who have a solid understanding of this transition, the challenges it can present, and the available treatment options, are invaluable to the women looking for assistance during what can be a perplexing and ever-changing picture of constitutional, cognitive, urogenital, and aesthetic concerns. Additionally, the hormonal shifts of menopause can cause problems that are imperceptible to the patient. Elevations in their risk of developing osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, and other diseases of aging are vital to detect and monitor. In addition to the ability to screen and detect these diseases, as natural medicine practitioners, we have several powerful evidence-based botanical and nutraceutical tools to assist women through the symptoms they experience. Additionally, the principles of Tolle Causum and Tolle Totum result in our ability to honour and address each unique symptom picture and guide our patients through the important diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes that will help improve their treatment outcomes and quality of life.

Presented by: Dr. Tamara Dickson is a graduate of Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Arizona and is currently the owner of Naturista, a multi-platform integrative medicine resource. She teaches Naturopathic medical students and continuing education courses for professionals at Bastyr University, is a founding member of the PsychANP, a council member on the GCRN in the UK, and is an international lecturer on Naturopathic Medicine. As an experienced clinician, her focus is in the treatment of adult chronic disease management and women’s health; she strongly relies on principles of nutritional biochemistry, botanical medicine, and lifestyle modification to help her patients achieve their goals. She has obtained additional training certificates in NAET, nutrigenomics, oncology, and craniosacral therapy to meet the treatment needs and demands of her treatment population. Her eclectic combination of skills and experience in Naturopathic education allows for interesting and clinically rewarding seminars and materials for all practitioners

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
