  • Review the link between nutritional deficiencies and mental health in respect of certain diets and nutrients.
  • Summarize the clinical evidence, to date, for diet and nutraceutical supplementations as key adjunct strategies in the treatment of mental health disorders.
  • Explore the importance of the biological pathways of inflammation and the immune system in mediating the influence of nutrition on mental health.
  • Introduce a new dietary assessment tool called the inflammation Index Score and a pathology test that can be used as a marker for monitoring the effectiveness of diet and nutraceuticals in rebalancing inflammation pathways to support mental health.

This is a 'Practitioner Only' event is recognised for 1.25 contact learning hours. Please contact your individual association to apply for CPE points.

Metagenics Maladies of Modernity

Protecting Our Ancient Genome in Modern Times
Do your new patients appear more stressed and tired than ever?
Are you concerned about how equipped we are to counter the effects of the modern environment on your patients’ health?
Do you have difficulties determining what is behind your patient’s fatigue?

This seminar will identify the current key biological stressors on health and how Practitioners can successfully help patients thrive in a modern world.

Our genome has evolved over millennia ensuring ideal health in its environment. However, the past century has brought about unprecedented changes in diet, microbial biodiversity, activity, circadian rhythms, psychological stress, and exposure to electromagnetic fields and synthetic chemicals. These changes speak to our genes, and there are some that would argue that the exponential increase in persistent fatigue and chronic disease, such as thyroid dysfunction and mood disorders, is evidence that our genome has not yet adapted to this rapid shift in our ‘exposome’. Leave this seminar with a deeper understanding of the pathophysiology of this evolutionary discordance, and be armed with powerful therapeutic strategies to transform tired and stressed patients into happy and healthy individuals.

Apply Cutting-Edge Science to Clinic Room Success:

  • Learn the model of allostatic load, and how modern biological stressors can impact mitochondria, thyroid and brain function.
  • Understand how new-age biological stressors are threatening your patients’ energy and mental health.
  • Find out about the fascinating new science on circadian rhythm and how body clocks powerfully affect health.
  • Learn the insidious role that electromagnetic fields (EMFs) have on human health and how we can combat them.
  • Learn from the past, observe the present and look to the future to address the health of the human microbiome and the evolution of probiotic research.

Seminar Highlights:
Hear from independent practicing Clinicians on resolving challenging modern-day cases (at certain venues highlighted on the locations page).
Learn about effective treatment strategies to provide foundational energy support and offset biological stressors.

MediHerb Metabolic 

Our modern lifestyle of poor nutrition and sedentary behaviour, combined with exposure to stress, immune challenges and environmental toxins, has created a perfect storm for the epidemic of metabolic health challenges we now face. These metabolic disturbances severely compromise health in a range of body systems, including cardiovascular, liver, musculoskeletal, blood sugar regulation, endocrine, mood and cognition.

The biomedical research in this area is vast and continually expanding. This new information gives the natural clinician a unique advantage in solving this complex health puzzle, through our capacity to instantly translate state of the art research findings into today’s clinical practice.

Keeping up to date with the latest research in this field is critical for the best care of your patients, but it can be confusing and daunting. In this seminar Kerry and Beth have done the hard work for you. They will provide comprehensive cutting-edge information, distilled from their extensive clinical experience and reading many hundreds of recent scientific studies.

By the end of the seminar, you will have the confidence to immediately start using this new information with your patients. Cardiometabolic health is one of the fastest growing areas of clinical practice, so this seminar is a must for all clinicians wanting to provide the best care for their patients.

This educational event is recognised for 5 contact learning hours. Please contact your individual association to apply for CPE points

Non Alcoholic fatty

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a clinical condition characterised by lipid infiltration of the liver. It is highly prevalent in the general population, affecting 25% to 30% of adults and 15% children with an increasing incidence. Approximately 50% of overweight and obese individuals or those with type 2 diabetes are considered to have the condition. Untreated, the risk of cardiovascular disease, fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are increased.
NAFLD has a strong association with dietary and lifestyle factors. Whilst medicine has little to offer patients (there are no specific drugs approved on the market); there is evidence to support the therapeutic application of nutrients, herbal medicines and probiotics in treatment.

This seminar will focus on the current research including recent evidence of glandular involvement and the relevant holistic clinical approaches.

Key Learning Outcomes:

  • The prevalence of NAFLD and the lack of conventional medical treatment
  • Why is NAFLD on the rise?
  • What are the clinical presentations?
  • Choosing the right test to support your diagnosis
  • The relationship between immune functioning/ inflammation and liver functioning
  • What is the prognosis?
  • Review of treatment strategies incorporating dietary and lifestyle advice
  • Clinical prescribing approaches with natural medicines
  • Effective immunomodulators and benefit for persons with NAFLD

FxMed Mastering advanced B

Presenter:  Warren Maginn, BHSc (Nutr.Med), Grad Cert (Hum Nutr). Warren is a Clinical Nutritionist and College Lecturer, specialising in the individualised management of chronic health conditions, as well as the maximisation of health and wellbeing, through the principles of Functional Medicine and integrative laboratory testing. Warren holds a bachelor degree in Clinical Nutrition as well as postgraduate qualifications in Human Nutrition, and teaches bachelor students of Nutritional Medicine in Brisbane, whilst supporting and mentoring naturopathic and medical practitioners around Australia and New Zealand in their use of functional pathology testing and clinical nutraceuticals, as a basis to integrative health management.

What will be covered:
The significance of methylation to human health has become increasingly acknowledged within healthcare practice in recent years. As a result, many practitioners have jumped at the chance to use more biochemically active and methylated forms of supplemental B vitamins within their clinical prescriptions, in an attempt to better address these newly appreciated issues. However this has often resulted in highly variable, and sometimes contradictory, outcomes in certain instances. In this time, the growing importance that Practitioners have placed in this area, has also seen an increase in the use of specialised clinical testing options in order to determine current metabolic
activity (and therefore make more sound clinical assessments about ongoing patient care). The results of this exploration has subsequently lead to an increasing sophistication and nuance regarding precisely which B vitamin forms  to use when writing prescriptions and support protocols, in order to properly serve the needs of certain individual clients, for better long term clinical outcomes. A discussion of these options surrounding clinical B vitamin investigations and supplemental forms will be provided, and may benefit practitioners to deepen their understanding, and maximise their results as part of a more balanced and personalised approach to this importance aspect of modern healthcare and practice.
