FXMed logo Microbioms Control

The microbiome and the immune system are inextricably connected and the immune system would cease to function without the microbiome. This presentation will provide a review on the components of the immune system, the kinetics of our immune response and the critical support and check-points managed by the microbiome. One of our most powerful tools in fighting invading pathogens is having a healthy microbiome and this talk will illustrate what exactly that means.

Presented by Kiran Krishnan. Kiran Krishnan is a Research Microbiologist and has been involved in the dietary supplement and nutrition market for the past 20 years. Most recently, Kiran is a Co-Founder and the Chief Scientific Officer at Microbiome Labs, a leader in microbiome and probiotic research. He is a frequent lecturer on the Human Microbiome at Medical and Nutrition Conferences. He is currently involved in over 18 novel human clinical trials on probiotics and the human microbiome.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review of our immune response and kinetics to a new pathogen
  • Learn about how the microbiome helps the development and function of the immune system
  • Learn how to increase overall resiliency by improving the microbiome and paying attention to specific types of dysbiosis
  • Leave with specific action items that can be incorporated into practice on Monday morning

BioPractica Oral Pathogens logo

Did you know? Up to 30% of the population suffer from GINGIVAL INFLAMMATION

Alarming rates of periodontal disease are compounded by NEW EVIDENCE linking oral health to multiple chronic diseases. Evolutionary discord, loss of vital nutrients and industrial lifestyle practices have resulted in a significant loss of diversity within the oral microbiota. The global deterioration in oral health aligns with overwhelming increases in systemic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and many other chronic conditions. Lost probiotic strains may hold to key to restoring oral health and preventing a wide range of systemic diseases.

About the presenter,  Professor Mark Cannon.  Mark Cannon is a Professor of Otolaryngology, Division of Dentistry at Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine, an Attending Physician at Ann and Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital and a member of the International Association of Pediatric Dentistry. In addition to being the founder of Associated Dental Specialists of Long Grove (1981); he is the Research Coordinator of the Pediatric Dental residency program at Ann and Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital, Chicago, Illinois.  Dr. Cannon has 40 years of experience in pediatric dentistry and has presented lectures both nationally and internationally. He lectures on many oral health topics including evolutionary oral medicine, the gateway microbiomes, biologic and bioactive dental materials (patents owner), probiotics, and all aspects of everyday Pediatric oral health. Dr. Cannon has humbly accepted two invitations by the Karolinska Institutet, first to the Nobel Forum (2016) and secondly to the Nobel Assembly (2017). Most of all, Dr. Cannon is the proud father of five, all of whom are very accomplished. He is also a very proud grandfather! 

Important research is emerging on probiotic strain combinations supporting oral health via four key mechanisms:

  • Antimicrobial effects
  • Localised anti-inflammatory activity
  • Immune-modulatory effects
  • Anti-fungal effects

GAIN clinically relevant insights into:

  • Why evolutionary alterations in diet and lifestyle have affected oral microbial diversity, resulting in overgrowths of pathogenic bacteria and vulnerability to disease.
  • How translocation of periodontal pathogens from the mouth into the brain trigger neuro-inflammatory responses, leading to memory loss and neurological conditions.
  • Utilising specific probiotic strain combinations such as Lactobacillus reuteri DSM 17938 and ATCC PTA 5289 to restore oral microbial balance.
  • How microbial fermentation of specific carbohydrates contributes to a reduction in the pH of the oral environment and causes demineralisation of the enamel.
  • Why treating pathogenic disturbances in the oral microbiome, reduces the risk of systemic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, adverse pregnancy outcomes, and lung disease.

Date & Time:  11am AEST on Saturday 26th June

BioMedica Supporting Cancer pt 1

Part 1: Reducing Risk of recurrence on 8th July at 12.00pm (AEST). Duration: 30 minutes.  Presenter: Vivian Klaver BHSc (Nut Med), B.(Psych, Mngmt/Mkt).  Whilst 5 year cancer survival rates are on the rise, the risk of recurrence is still very significant and a huge cause of anxiety and fear for cancer survivors. The medical standard of care has only few interventions to reduce the risk of recurrence, but clinical evidence shows that diet, lifestyle and complementary medicines may have a significant benefit. In this Lunch and Learn, Vivian from Melbourne Integrative Oncology Group discusses what we as complementary medicine practitioners can offer in terms of prevention of recurrence. She will specifically discuss clinical research about the impact of diet, exercise and other lifestyle interventions, as well as key nutritional medicines with anti-cancer action.

Key learning outcomes

  • A brief overview of the statistics around risk of recurrence
  • They've completed treatment and are NED... what now?
  • Dietary influences on risk of recurrence
  • The importance of movement and exercise
  • Sleep, stress and self-care
  • Useful evidence based complementary medicines

Part 2.  Patients on long term hormone suppression therapy on 12th August  at 12:00pm (AEST) Duration: 30 minutes.  Presenter: Tanya Wells GCHPE, BSc, BHSc (Naturopathy).  Hormonal factors are important drivers of growth in many oncology presentations including prostate cancer and some types of breast and gynaecological cancers. Androgen Deprivation Therapy and Oestrogen Suppression/Ovarian ablation are utilised as a standard treatment to suppress the impact of these growth pathways on progression of disease and to reduce the risk of recurrence. However, hormone suppression has consequences beyond the cancer process and there are significant side effects associated with long term therapy. Join Tanya Wells from Melbourne Integrative Oncology Group for this concise discussion of the main issues and a summary of when and how integrative support can have the greatest impact.

Key Learning Outcomes:

  • What are the standard approaches for hormone mediated cancers
  • Discussion of the types of hormone suppression therapy
  • Short and long term side effects of hormone suppression therapy
  • The clinician’s role in side effect management and Complementary Medicines that may be of benefit
  • Lifestyle and other considerations.

Metagenics Hormonal Mood

Psychiatric epidemiology tells us females are at greater risk of affective disorders, two to three times more likely to suffer from depression than male counterparts. This female-biased risk emerges around menarche and subsides in menopause, implicating reproductive hormones in the manifestation of affective and cognitive presentations.  While the aetiology of reproductive mood disorders is complex and not entirely understood, there are proposed mechanisms and research suggests an interaction between endocrinological, neural, psychosocial and genetic factors.

This upcoming webinar details the latest evidence on the aetiology and management of the reproductive mood disorders, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) and perimenopausal depression. Since these conditions can be severe, this webinar aims to encourage timely detection and treatment to prevent women from experiencing prolonged distress.

Join us for this free webinar where you will:

  • Learn how to recognise PMDD and perimenopausal depression.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of the potential aetiologic factors involved in reproductive mood disorders.
  • Receive guidance on how to distinguish premenstrual exacerbation of existing mood disorders from PMDD and perimenopausal depression.
  • Follow the journey of patients with PMDD and perimenopause depression and learn how to manage these conditions with natural remedies.

Meet Your Presenter:  Nikki Callan (BHSc Nutrition, Adv Dip Nat), from the Metagenics Clinical Education team has experience working as a Naturopath and within the complementary therapy industry both overseas and in Australia. Nikki gained clinical experience internationally working with patients afflicted by gut disorders, CIRS, chronic infections and addictions. During childhood Nikki was well acquainted with migraines, and due to current and ongoing musculoskeletal issues has a personal interest in finding ways to effectively manage pain and discomfort through the combination of manual therapies and Naturopathic support.

Date: Wednesday 21st July.  Time: QLD, NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS 11 am | SA, NT 10:30 am | WA 9 am | NZ 1 pm. Duration: 75 minutes
