MediHerb On-Demand Webinar Clinical Management of PCOS and Metabolic Health

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common reproductive endocrine disorders in women of reproductive age. It causes significant distress and is a frequent cause of anovulatory infertility, long cycles, heavy periods and acne in women. PCOS also affects body image and emotional wellbeing, as well as substantially increasing a woman’s likelihood of metabolic abnormalities, predisposing them to insulin resistance, cardiovascular risk, dyslipidaemia, endothelial dysfunction and systemic inflammation.

In this presentation Angela Hywood will explore the metabolic precursors affecting this condition, using current scientific understanding and its implications in reproductive health. Angela will also share her herbal and nutritional treatment approaches to PCOS, based on her extensive clinical experience in this crucial area of healthcare.

Dates: On-demand webinar from Monday 20 September for two weeks
Speaker: Angela Hywood
Cost:  Practitioners $30, Students $24.  Duration, one hour

FxMed Stress Thyroid logo jpg

Presented by Denise Furness Friday 15 October at 12 noon NZDT / 10am AEDT

Prolonged HPA axis activation (long term stress) is associated with chronic inflammation, a known driver of autoimmune disease. In particular, thyroid related autoimmune diseases including Graves (hyperthyroidism) and Hashimoto’s (hypothyroidism). Furthermore, there is a bidirectional relationship between the HPA axis and the HPT (hypothalamus-pituitary-thyroid) axis. For those who are committed to changing their lifestyle and addressing the underlying drivers of their condition, it is possible to reduce the symptoms of both hyper and hypothyroidism, ultimately leading to improved lifelong health.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand the underlying drivers of thyroid imbalance with a focus on stress and key nutrients.
  • Gain an integrative approach to addressing underlying factors and restoring thyroid balance.

Logo Integria symposium 

Presented by Practitioners, for Practitioners.

We invite you to join us for our pinnacle educational event, the 2021 Integria Healthcare Symposium

Optimising GIT health is at the core of naturopathic philosophy and practice, and it is considered the seat of all health. Our traditional understanding of the intimate connection between the digestive system and systemic physiology is now validated with a vast body of scientific evidence. Intricate two-way communication among various GIT-multisystem axes is now widely acknowledged – including between the brain, cardiometabolic, respiratory, skin, endocrine and immune systems. However, whilst this holistic approach to health is becoming more accepted, patients presenting with overt or underlying GIT dysfunctions continue to rise, with 1 in 2 Australians suffering from digestive problems.[i]

Despite these advances in research and practice innovation, working with common, yet complex GIT disorders can be challenging. Consequently, in order to continue providing optimal patient care it is vitally important to merge this contemporary scientific evidence with a holistic framework.

Bio Practica How to Sustain logo jpeg

PART 1: IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MUCIN.  Malfunction of mucous is a major contributor to human disease, influencing the aetiology of several conditions and exacerbating others. It has long been understood that whole health is largely contingent on gastrointestinal mucosal integrity. Mucous, secreted by proteins known as mucins, constitutes a key component of the gut barrier. Mucins are gaining increasing recognition for their critical role in maintaining homeostasis of the intestinal epithelium.  The quality and quantity of mucin produced in the gastrointestinal tract may have a significant impact on gut microbial balance, and thus overall health.

Clinical Insights:
Understanding which microbes degrade mucin and which microbes protect or build up the mucin layer in the gut How nickel alters mucin production, acting as a direct irritant to the intestinal mucous and causing mucositis Why secretor status is an important determinant of mucin production and how best to support patients with this genetic variant How treating mucous dysfunction/depletion reduces the risk of systemic conditions such as IBD, IBS, endometriosis, and cancer Which clinical strategies effectively address mucous dysfunction/depletion

Presenter:  Gemma Martin is a clinical naturopath, researcher, and technical writer based in the beautiful northern NSW region of Australia. With over 15 years’ experience, Gemma began her naturopathic journey at Southern Cross University in Lismore, where she discovered a passion for the science of natural medicine. This love of science led to a role in research and product development with an industry leading natural product company shortly after the completion of her studies. Gemma also spent time in Broome, Western Australia, where she worked as a clinical naturopath and ran her own health consulting company providing on-site support to mining staff. Currently Gemma runs a practice in Murwillumbah and is a busy Mum with two young children.

BioPractica Detox Allergies logojpeg

Allergic diseases such as atopic eczema, food allergy, allergic rhinitis and asthma are reported to affect approximately 20% of the global population. The worldwide prevalence of allergic disease is rising rapidly and is attributed to the interplay of gene-environment interactions which alter the immune system and subsequent host response. The resultant chronic inflammation may perpetuate allergic disease and initiate other disease pathways.  Exposure to antigens may initiate gastrointestinal inflammation and gut barrier hyperpermeability, or ‘leaky gut’. Gut healing and anti-inflammatory protocols are an important feature in any allergy and reactivity protocol. Equally important is the support of detoxification pathways to reduce the toxic load and aid in the neuralisation and elimination of reactive compounds.

GAIN CLINICALLY SIGNIFICANT INSIGHTS INTO: How the modern Western diet and lifestyle is contributing to allergic disease, and key clinical strategies to reduce reactivity. Why gut repair and anti-inflammatory protocols are imperative for reduction of allergies. Decoding the latest research on the most effective natural medicines to assist in allergy reduction. How to reduce the toxic load and support detoxification pathways by using specific natural medicines, alongside therapeutic dietary and lifestyle practices.

Presenter Michele Wolff.  Michele is a naturopath with 20 years’ experience as a clinician, and is the owner of Ultimate Detox Solutions, a naturopathic clinic in Melbourne. She has also been a registered nurse since 1987, a colonic hydrotherapist since 1992, and regularly runs courses to teach health professionals colonic hydrotherapy. Michele’s passion for natural medicine has led her to complete extensive studies in the field of detoxification, in addition to stomach and bowel disorders. She is also the author of ‘Digestive Solutions: 101 Proven Methods to Solve Your Tummy Problems Naturally’. Michele has worked for several years as a naturopathic supervisor and lecturer in food as medicine to naturopathic and nutritional students and has been a senior lecturer for nutrition and naturopathic degrees for 17 years.
