FxMed Pure Healthy Ageing Febjpg

Worldwide, most countries have an ageing population. As the proportion of people are living longer and getting older, so does the rate of chronic health conditions and reduced quality of life. Due to this, the WHO has declared 2020–2030 the decade of healthy ageing. This webinar will discuss the various underlying factors associated with ageing and metabolic health including diet, exercise and lifestyle along with intervention strategies to help restore and enhance metabolic function and longevity.
Learning Objectives
• To explore the growing issue of ageing in Australia and New Zealand.
• To learn about the various factors that influence metabolic health
including lipid metabolism and insulin resistance.
• To identify factors that influence oxidative stress and metabolic balance that impact how well we age.
• To understand the key nutrients and compounds that can support healthy ageing and longevity.

Presented by Dr Denise Furness,PhD BSc(Hons) RNutr AusREP,Founder, Your Genes & Nutrition Advisor Pure Encapsulations.  Dr Denise Furness, PhD is a functional geneticist, registered nutritionist, and
registered exercise professional. She is a pioneer in the field of nutrigenomics and epigenetics. She began her career as a research scientist focusing on fertility and pregnancy health. She has published her work in peer reviewed journals and has won national and international awards for her research and conference presentations. In 2012 she founded Your Genes and Nutrition and began applying her knowledge in private practice. Denise has a special interest in thyroid health, after suffering autoimmune thyroid condition herself, and being told that it was lifelong. Using her knowledge in nutritional and lifestyle medicine Denise now helps those with thyroid, autoimmune and hormonal conditions take charge of their health and wellbeing.

FxMed Quicksilver Understanding the Bodyjpg

Cumulative research in the area of longevity point to a handful of key biochemical pathways that impact healthy ageing as well as the targeted plant compounds and nutraceuticals that can positively influence these pathways. In this 1 hour webinar, Dr Shade of Quicksilver Scientific will introduce the Longevity Wheel, a comprehensive age management model highlighting the following longevity biochemical pathways:
• AMPK activation to regulate metabolic health and flexibility, autophagy and lipolysis
• NAD+ production to regulate energy metabolism, mitochondrial density and DNA repair
• Sirtuin activation to help regulate DNA repair, cellular signalling, energy metabolism and inflammatory response
• Telomerase activity for healthy gene expression and cellular ageing
• Cellular senescence to manage the presence and activity of senescent cells and Neuroendocrine support for stress resilience and fortification of the hormone-secreting functions of the adrenal cortex. Dr Shade will conclude his discussion on the Longevity Wheel by defining the targeted plant compounds and nutraceuticals necessary for each spoke of the wheel and how to successfully increase absorption of these typically low- bioavailable compounds for age optimization.

Presented by Dr Christopher Shade, PhD, founder and CEO of Quicksilver Scientific, continues to be the driving force of development and innovation. Dr Shade’s vast depth and breadth of knowledge, passion for healing, and intuitive understanding of chemistry and biology are reflected in Quicksilver Scientific’s well-designed detoxification protocols, unique supplement delivery systems, and patented mercury speciation test. Dr Shade is a recognized expert on mercury and liposomal delivery systems. He has lectured and trained doctors in the U.S. and internationally on the subject of mercury, heavy metals, and the human detoxification system. Dr Shade’s current focus is on the development of cutting-edge, lipid-based delivery systems for nutraceuticals, such as liposomes and micro-emulsion systems, to address the growing need of high quality, affordable detoxification solutions.

Learning Objectives
1. Understand the key biochemical pathways, molecules and mechanisms that impact ageing
2. Introduce the Longevity Wheel, a comprehensive age management model
3. Explain the key plant compounds and nutrients needed to successfully target each spoke of the wheel
4. How to activate each spoke of the wheel through supplementation
5. Solving the problem of bioavailability through nanoparticle delivery systems

BioMedica World of pain logo

Around the world, pain is the main cause of disability and commonly the primary purpose of people visiting a health care practitioner. Persistent pain places burden on health care systems as well as impacting the quality of life and mental health of the affected individual.

Biomedical chronic pain management often focuses on a search for a single anatomical cause of pain, and a narrow pathology-based pharmacocentric view. While, a holistic approach identifies multiple contributing factors across biomedical, psychological and social domains, and understands that as human beings, everything matters. 

Join our 2-part webinar series, The World of Pain; A biopsychosocial framework for holistic practitioners, to discover a practical biopsychosocial (BPS) framework for effectively understanding, assessing and managing chronic pain.

Presenter:  Ananda Mahony.  
Part 1:  23rd February at 7.00pm AEDT.  Part 2:  2nd March at 7.00pm AEDT.  Each session 60 min plus live Q & A.
