Metagenics mastering the microbiome

Scientific interest and research in the microbiome is one of the most rapidly growing areas of health science today, highlighting the necessity for Practitioners to be able to incorporate the latest science into clinical practice. This seminar will synthesise this ever growing research into clinical relevance and deliver the most effective strategies for the restoration and maintenance of a healthy microbiome.

Accumulating evidence demonstrates that a disturbed microbiome is linked to not only gut disorders but also systemic and distal disease, highlighting that gut microbiome interacts with metabolism, immunity and neural function. This seminar will unravel the complexities of the microbe human relationship, focussing on both the causes and consequences of a disturbed gut microbiome. These new insights help form clear guidelines for the management of common yet frustrating complaints such as bloating and constipation, SIBO, IBS and IBD, as well as pathophysiology existing outside of the gut. This seminar aims to provide the confidence and tools to achieve and maintain a harmonious and symbiotic human-microbe relationship with targeted integrative natural therapies.

Why you should attend:
Incorporate the Latest Science into Your Clinical Practice:
• Review the complexity of digestive function through the lens of the human microbiome relationship and help resolve common gut complaints.
• Understand the impact of the gut microbiome on systems such as the skin, urogenital tract, brain and cardiovascular system.
• Discover microbial management strategies for conditions beyond the gut, including CVD, diabetes and autoimmune disease.
• Learn the facts about the mechanisms of action of probiotics and the surprising ways they cultivate and promote restoration of a healthy microbiome.
• Put science into practice by recognising the impact of diet, lifestyle, medications, stress and poor digestive function on microbiome composition and function, and establish a practical approach to managing the microbial environment.

Seminar Highlights:
• New scientifically researched probiotic product.
• Learn about the latest science on how probiotic supplements affect our microbiome and how the microbiome interacts with us (its host).
• Learn how to use Metagenics’ comprehensive range of probiotic supplements for best patient outcomes.

BioCeuticals SIBO SEM logo

In this clinically focused workshop, gastrointestinal expert Alessandra Edwards will share with you the latest research and therapeutic approach to diagnose and treat small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and parasites such as Blastocystis hominis and Dientamoeba fragilis.
Alessandra will share a new perspective on the treatment of gastrointestinal infections that will focus on the restoration of the biomechanics involved in healthy digestion, rehabilitation of the gut microbiome and ecosystem, as well as addressing a malfunctioning gut/brain axis. This seminar will challenge the traditional therapeutic approach of weed, seed, feed for gastrointestinal infections in line with novel research into the microbiome and its functions. You will learn how toxic microbial metabolites are affecting your treatment outcomes, why carbohydrate restrictive diets are detrimental in the long term and why antibiotic and antimicrobial therapies have a high failure rate for both SIBO and gastrointestinal infections. Alessandra will also share her therapeutic approach for complex, highly sensitive patients who present with multiple
intolerances including salicylate, amine and histamine and who usually cannot tolerate nutritional interventions.


Learning objectives:
• Explore screening, testing and diagnosis: how to correctly identify patients at risk for SIBO and gastrointestinal parasites
• Discover the relationship between SIBO and common chronic disease states
• Evaluate gut brain axis imbalances and considerations for SIBO
• Understand biomechanics: the role of adhesions, motility and gastrointestinal valves dysfunction in SIBO
• Analyse the role of biofilm and SIBO
• Review the current literature and therapeutic considerations in regards to the presence of parasites
• Learn how to treat super-sensitive patients and those with complex intolerances
• Discover treatment strategies including dietary, herbal antimicrobials, prebiotics, probiotics and ancillary therapeutics for correction and prevention of SIBO and parasites

BioMedica Protecting Fertility logo

Seminar presented by Tabitha McIntosh, Naturopath and Clinical Nutritionist
The increasing incidence of reproductive disorders in both genders, and the downwards trend in fertility rates in Australia and around the world are alarming, and beg the question – where are we going wrong?

As clinicians we can no longer ignore the effect of the environment and our inevitable chemical burden on human development, health and reproduction. Join Tabitha for this seminar to understand at what stages of development for both genders, we can have the most significant impact on maximising healthy hormones and outcomes. We as clinicians have much potential to bridge the void in public awareness about chemicals, and an arsenal of powerful tools and strategies to maximise resilience against environmental onslaught, and in doing so, play a vital role in protecting our most precious resource – our next generation.

  • Topics covered and key learning outcomes:
  • Evidence of harm: a brief review of the latest environmental research and the current state of affairs
  • How strong is the connection between chemical exposures and human reproduction & development?
  • Review of reproductive development over the lifecycle: male and female sexual development, puberty, menarche, fertility potential, and beyond – and the impact of environmental exposures
  • Understand the specific toxins that threaten reproduction, neuro-development, and the next generation
  • Interplay between our genes, nutrition and industrial pollutants, and critical windows of vulnerability
  • The challenges and opportunities in private clinical practice with managing this
  • Review strategies to reduce toxicity-transfer
  • Build strong foundations – preconception, pregnancy, and beyond
  • Powerful strategies for becoming a part of the solution
  • Maximising resilience throughout the lifecycle for better outcomes
  • Clinical prescribing approaches for each stage of the lifecycle with respect to fertility and environmental impacts, including relevant case study insights

Nutrisearch Prof Luis Vit

We are delighted to have secured an internationally recognised integrative health researcher of this calibre to share such in-depth knowledge with NZ integrative health practitioners. This will be an invaluable seminar and educational event which will include:

  • Inspiring lectures, and
  • Question and answer sessions
  • Presentation of difficult case studies

Expertise: Probiotics / Human Microbiome, Nutraceuticals, Nutrition, Clinical trials / Epidemiology, Integrative Medicine and Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
Professor Vitetta has research interests in nutrition, functional foods and immune function, as well as Mind Body Medicine. He was the first internationally funded Australian researcher investigating Chinese Herbal Medicines in a trial with HIV patients. He is often an invited speaker at numerous local and international conferences.  It is rare to have such a high calibre researcher, clinician and educator in New Zealand to empower New Zealand Practitioners. Please book early with our friendly team to ensure you will benefitfrom this exceptional educational event. 

Subjects Covered: 

  • Intestinal microbiome shifts are significantly and adversely affected by the administration of antibiotics, analgesic, anxiolytic, cholesterol lowering pharmaceuticals as well as other drug classes of medications. The intestinal microbiome is at the centre of health maintenance for end–organs (e.g., brain, liver, skeletal muscle) and disease prevention. As such the intestinal microbiome is vulnerable to the loss of keystone species and also possibly disruptions to bacterial foundation taxa.
  • The administration of evidence based formulations of multi-species probiotics either alone or in combination with bioactive companion compounds (e.g., coenzyme Q10, prebiotics) can lower the risk of disrupting the intestinal microbiome, while adhering to evidence based pharmaceutical medicine. 
  • The co-administraiton of probiotics with antibiotics for the prevention of infective diarrhoea or the prevention of antibiotic associated diarrhoea are viable evidence based examples. Furthermore, the treatment of medication side effects such as statin induced skeletal muscle myalgia with and orotate and probiotics may keep patients compliant and reduce the risk of disease progression due to medication cessation because of adverse medication side effects.
  • The targeted administration of probiotic, nutraceutical combination formulations, is a beneficial adjuvant prescriptionfor preventing disease progression.

Learning Objectives:

  • Briefly explain the mechanistic processes and the physiological changes that occur with chronic diseases
  • Engage the learner in an understanding of the overarching role of the intestinal microbiome in maintaining homeostasis ofend organs (e.g., liver, skeletal muscle function, adipose tissue, kidneys) physiological functions.
  • Engage the learner with the fact that commensal and pathobiont bacteria teach the human host the fundamentallanguage of molecular biology that is vital for appropriate immune functions and adaptations in health and disease.
  • Discuss the beneficial effect that the administration of probiotics and prebiotics and other compounds in mixedformulations may have as adjuvant treatments in chronic diseases.

Professor Luis Vitetta, will share the latest research and scientific evidence in this area so clinicians can implement clinical applications of this complex area across several disease states in clinic on monday morning.

MediHerb Adaptogenic seminar

These days most people complain of fatigue and/or being less able to cope with stress. In a society that seems to run on caffeine fixes, are there credible answers to this dilemma from other members of the plant kingdom?

In this comprehensive 90-minute webinar, Kerry outlines all the key facts about the use of tonic and adaptogenic herbs to meet this and other clinical challenges. After a short exploration of the basic concepts, relevant properties and some current clinical trials for most of the major herbs will be reviewed, including the recent newcomer Gynostemma. Most importantly, core prescribing differentials (which herbs work best in a given clinical situation) and treatment scenarios are fully outlined, based on Kerry’s 45 years of personal and clinical experience.

bWellness Well Woman logo

Well Woman is an All Day Symposium (7 CPE) that will look at the multi-generational view of women’s reproductive, emotional & mental health.  Bio-Practica has brought together expert International & Australian speakers including; Professor Jürgen Vormann, Rachel Arthur, Vanessa Hitch & Dr Thomas Harris.

Part 1:  The latest evidence of mineral imbalance in disease & effects of female reproductive health
PRESENTER: Professor Jürgen Vormann, international speaker & world expert on magnesium & pH.
The risk of mineral imbalance for a woman throughout her life-span is profound and may a ect a myriad of female hormonal disorders. As we age and consume an acidogenic, minerally-depleted western diet, our mineral stores diminish, leaving us metabolically challenged, acidic and depleted in energy and vitality.  Research is now linking mineral disturbances in magnesium and pH, to wide-ranging endocrine and metabolic dysfunction, stress, weight gain, ageing, poor brain function, metabolic syndrome and even cardiovascular disease.
LEARN: 

  • NEW RESEARCH on the metabolic impact of hidden mineral imbalances. 
  • The evidence outlining diets that really work for obesity.
  • Important recent global research on healthy pregnancy.

Part 2:  Acid-base balance for women in coping with stress & metabolic challenges
PRESENTER: Rachel Arthur, e
xpert naturopath.
Often our female patients, who are mothers and partners, present last in our clinics. They’ve sent in their children & partner long before they’ve found the time and recognised the necessity of addressing their own health – their stress, their weight issues, their autoimmunity & invariably their progression towards poor bone health. The modern woman spins many plates which means, whatever we ask her to do in terms of making healthy changes, must have the right balance of minimal effort with maximal impact. Whether it is back pain, autoimmunity, sleep problems, detoxification issues or just every day stress, correcting acid-base balance is central to producing the ‘Well Woman’ and in turn goes a long way to helping the whole family.
GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO:

  • Look at key body clues that acidosis may be manifesting in our female clients’ health picture
  • Help clients understand the magnitude of the positive impact we can expect from redressing this imbalance
  • Clinically address acid base imbalance as a critical determinant of health with a profound therapeutic ripple effect.

Part 3:  Mood, anxiety & female hormones
PRESENTER: Vanessa Hitch
, Hormonal health expert & naturopath
It’s not just our neurotransmitters but also our hormones that determine how we think and feel. They powerfully influence a woman’s mood, how she is motivated, her eating patterns, sleep cycles, ability to concentrate and every aspect of her wellbeing. Australian & New Zealand women are more likely to experience symptoms such as depression, insomnia & anxiety, as well as a wide array of female hormonal conditions.
EXPLORE:

  • Vital new research changing the way we look at the brain and hormones
  • Why mood is so profoundly affected by the glandular production of hormones
  • How to quickly recognise and prescribe for hormonal and neurotransmitter imbalances.

Part 4:  Receptor sensitivity, stress & inflammation in hormonal health
PRESENTER: Dr Thomas Harris, PhD researcher & clinician
Emerging research suggests that hormones and neurotransmitters share not only common pathways but importantly, they also share common receptor sites in vital areas of the brain and key reproductive organs and tissues in the body. The implications of receptor sensitivity and function, adds another level of complexity to our understanding of hormones and mood and needs to be properly recognised, so we can prescribe accordingly for better clinical outcomes.
LOOK INTO:

  • Key pathways including the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal and adrenal axes and their interplay affecting hormonal health
  • Evidence of the impact of stress hormones and inflammation on receptor function
  • NEW TREATMENT STRATEGIES for improving receptor function for progesterone, insulin and other key hormone

Resetting Addicted Brain Bioconcepts

With 60% of the population experiencing addictive tendencies behavioural or substance related, it is imperative for health practitioners to understand the underlying biochemical pathways of addiction as a disease state.

While different substances can stimulate specific neurotransmitters within the brain, by understanding the fundamental pathway of addiction, practitioners can treat a variety of different presentations. Due to the increase in addictive presentations in clinics – ranging from food cravings, social media and internet addictions to alcohol, cannabis and illicit drug dependencies – further support for practitioners in this area of health is essential.  As a society, are we driving our dopamine reward pathway into disarray?

Join Dr Michael Osiecki and Emma Wisbey as they explore the neurobiology of the brain-reward cascade; the significant impact of genetic, epigenetic and environmental influences; and how this knowledge can help practitioners influence positive clinical outcomes.

Dr Michael Osiecki PhD, BE(Chemical), BBiotech(Hons). Dr Michael Osiecki is a Director of Bio Concepts, who has been diversifying the business through technology for the past year. Prior to this, Dr Michael Osiecki received his doctorate for research in the field of biological engineering, specialising in isolation and expansion of stem cells in bioreactor systems.

This seminar will provide an overview of cancer as the result of a confluence of multiple factors. The process of carcinogenesis will be assessed as one influenced by both extrinsic systemic conditions as well as by intrinsic cellular aberrations. Armed with this holistic understanding,
practitioners will be equipped to identify individual risk factors and will have the underlying rationale for comprehensive prevention and management strategies.
Learning objectives:

• Identify the key characteristics of malignancy on genetic, epigenetic, biomolecular and the pathophysiological levels
• Discover the role of stromal inflammation in carcinogenesis
• Analyse the complex role of immunity and angiogenesis in carcinogenesis
• Describe the role of insulin, glucose and metabolism in carcinogenesis
• Analyse the role of oxidative stress in carcinogenesis with an emphasis on the contribution of environmental toxicity
• Evaluate the impact of psychosocial stress and circadian disturbance on carcinogenesis
• Gain familiarity with the presentation of cancer and presenting signs and symptoms that should trigger a diagnostic work-up
