Lunch & Learn 2 part series.
Part 2 – A clinical approach to neurodegenerative conditions.

Thursday, November 11th 2021 – 12pm ADST

Lunch and learn

Organiser: BioMedica
Presenter: Samuel Peters BHSc (nat)
When: Thursday, November 11th 2021 – 12pm ADST

As the single greatest cause of disability in people aged 65 and over, dementia poses an enormous individual, healthcare and economic burden. Current medical treatments only act to control or modify the symptoms of AD rather than alter the course of the disease. Holistic practitioners are therefore uniquely placed to offer support for both the prevention and integrative management of this insidious disease.

In this session, Samuel Peters BHSc (nat) will build upon the learnings from Part 1 by providing a clinical approach to neurodegenerative disorders, providing a holistic framework for management, which can be immediately integrated into your clinical practice.

Key Learning Outcomes

  • An overview of the underlying drivers of age-related neurodegeneration 
  • Appreciate the significance of the extended pre-clinical phase and the urgent need for early intervention
  • Understand the role of plasmalogens as well as other evidence-based complementary medicines in neurodegenerative conditions. 
  • Best-practice clinical guidelines for management at various stages of disease presentation

Pain and Autoimmunity- Novel Treatment Pathways for Lifelong Conditions

There is no cure for autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, endometriosis and inflammatory bowel disease, and the reason they develop is still shrouded in mystery, leaving many patients feeling defeated, as if their body has betrayed them. Plagued with chronic pain, emotional trauma, a loss of identity and lack of understanding from those around them, patients see an average of six doctors before they even reach a diagnosis. Many turn to Natural Medicine Practitioners for answers.

Affecting up to 12% of the population, autoimmune conditions are considered one of the most significant chronic health problems we face. Concerningly, and for no clear reason, there has been a steady rise in the incidence of these conditions in the industrialised world. 

What causes the body to turn against itself?

Key Learning Outcomes

  • Explore how Natural Health Practitioners can harness the power of the vagus nerve and the cannabinoid system to offer patients relief from chronic pain and inflammatory conditions. 
  • Understand how abnormal persistence of the cell danger response plays a role in autoimmune conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, and why supporting mitochondrial health is an integral treatment strategy.
  • Delve into the relationship between chronic infections immune dysregulation, and chronic inflammation.
