MediHerb Mitochondrial logo

The role of mitochondria as major contributors to health and disease is being increasingly recognized.

Besides energy production, mitochondria have been implicated in various physiologic processes in relation to the specialized duties of the differentiated cell in which it resides.

These non-ATP-related functions are intimately involved with most of the major metabolic pathways used by a cell and therefore, damage to mitochondria can have widespread consequences affecting entire organ systems.

Mitochondrial dysfunction results in symptoms that are common complaints in almost every chronic disease, underlining the importance of supporting healthy mitochondrial function.

This comprehensive seminar series will enhance your understanding of the role of mitochondria in a host of conditions and provide clinically relevant information and treatment guidelines.

Key learning outcomes:

  • Five functions of mitochondria besides energy production
  • Mitochondrial vulnerabilities and the fundamental sensors and pathways involved in mitochondrial regulation and protection
  • Essential features of mitochondrial therapy, including the role of key herbs and the latest related clinical research for key nutrients
  • The crucial role of minerals such as iron, zinc, calcium and magnesium in mitochondrial function and understanding the current metallomics of iron to determine effective therapies for mitochondrial dysfunction
  • Receptor polymorphisms of the mitochondrial membrane and altered biological function
  • The four pillars of cellular vitality and the nine hallmarks of ageing
  • Applying cellular principles to prevent Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease and promoting healthy ageing as a strategy for chronic disease prevention.

MediHerb Rising Osteoarthritis logo

In Australia over 2 million people suffer from osteoarthritis (OA), with two thirds comprising of women. The increased prevalence and severity of post-industrial OA suggests a more progressive complex condition and causation than previously thought. If we as practitioners are to offer sufferers of OA optimal support, we need to continually review current knowledge and how natural medicine approaches fit in.

In this webinar Berris will discuss and interpret some interesting current theory and recent research, which will improve your knowledge and ensure more effective clinical outcomes for your patients. The presentation will review:

  • Modifiable risk factors which are by no means limited to intrinsic factors such as age, sex, joint loading, BMI and genetics, but also ‘modern’ disease and inadequate adaptation to our current environment, as described by the Mismatch Theory
  • Inflammation, oxidative stress, endothelial dysfunction, advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and cardiometabolic disease
  • Reappraisal of dietary and lifestyle patterns
  • Herbal and nutritional strategies to:
    • address known drivers
    • reduce pain
    • increase mobility
    • improve prevention
    • reduce severity 

This educational event is recognised for 1.5 contact learning hours. Please contact your individual association to apply for CPE points.

Mast Cell Activation Syndrome: The Missing Link Of Chronic Disease?

Mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS) is a chronic multisystem polymorbidity with a prevalence as high as 5% to 10%, yet this condition is under-recognised and poorly understood. Patients with MCAS can have a seemingly endless list of triggers and can also experience symptoms of allergy, chronic pain, neuropsychiatric conditions, fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome, amongst others. By the time patients are diagnosed with MCAS, most have been through extensive testing often revealing normal results, and have been provided with multiple explanations for their multi-symptom presentation, causing isolation and emotional burden.

Eagle Digestive Logo

This seminar focuses on clinical management of Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD/GERD) and Non-erosive reflux disease (NERD). Approximately 11.6 % of the Australian population suffer diagnosed reflux conditions. This does not include the undiagnosed in our communities. Gastro-oesophageal diseases are on the rise driven by poor food choices, stress and certain medications.

Use of both prescription and OTC medications to manage the symptoms of GORD, reflux and heartburn are at epidemic proportions with more than 15 million annual prescriptions of the proton-pump inhibitors (PPI’s) esomeprazole and pantoprazole, plus additional OTC PPI use.

Resulting from both the diseases themselves and their conventional treatments, are a myriad of potential nutritional deficiencies and the possibility of more serious health risks. Recovering patient health by addressing the underlying broad mechanisms of the disease is not only essential, but alleviates the pain suffered and attenuates health risks.

Do you know how to effectively prescribe key CAM therapies to address the underlying drivers of your patient’s complex upper GIT diseases and minimise their risk of further complications? Are you confident in the concomitant prescription of CAM, dietary and lifestyle interventions alongside orthodox management to provide symptomatic relief and enhance patient outcomes?

Our speaker, Teresa Mitchell-Paterson will share vital insights of successful clinical therapy and patient cases to advance your clinical expertise in the management of upper GIT dysfunction. Dietary intervention and co-administration of CAM alongside medications will be discussed to optimise outcomes for your patient’s digestive health and overall wellbeing.
