Today’s life demands are often challenging and require intense physical and psychological efforts in order to be sustained. There is a constant feeling of ‘Overwhelm’, and if the individual perceives this stimulus to be too intense, then these patients may experience increased inflammation, metabolic disturbance, elevated autoimmune activity, energy deficits, and a myriad of other symptoms.

Assessment of chronic emotional stressors and the total toxic load, and then taking practical steps to improve biotransformation are essential and critical pieces in any integrative approach to your patients’ health and well-being. Learn from International experts and leading Clinicians in Integrative Medicine as to how you can assess and create a treatment framework for your practice.

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.

A world of Pain: A biopsychosocial framework for holistic practitioners

Part 1: Wednesday 23 February, 2022, 7.00pm (AEDT)
Part 2: Wednesday 2 March, 2022, 7.00pm (AEDT)


Organiser: BioMedica
Ananda Mahony B.App.Sc (Nat), MScM (Pain Management)
Cost: $25 incl. GST
Duration: Each session is 60 minutes plus live Q&A

Persistent pain impacts 1 in 5 Australians, placing burden on health care systems and significantly impacting the individual’s quality of life and mental health.
In contrast to the biomedical model for chronic pain management which focuses on a narrow pathology-based pharmacocentric view, and an ongoing search of a single anatomical or biomechanical cause, a holistic approach to chronic pain identifies multiple contributing factors across biomedical, psychological and social domains and understands that as human beings, everything matters.
In BioMedica’s 2-part webinar series, The World of Pain: A biopsychosocial framework for holistic practitioners, practitioners will be provided a framework for understanding, assessing and managing pain from a holistic and biopsychosocial (BPS) perspective. Support strategies and case studies will be discussed within this framework to provide clinical relevance and immediate application.

Key Learning Outcomes

  • Understand pain from a holistic perspective and the importance of psychosocial factors in the persistence of pain.
  • Be able to assess a client in chronic pain, and develop a comprehensive treatment strategy using a BPS framework
  • Identify the difference between acute and chronic pain
  • Describe the difference between nociceptive, neuropathic, and functional pain
  • Develop the knowledge to work collaboratively with a chronic pain care team, and know when to refer
  • Identify key nutritional and herbal therapeutics to be incorporated into a holistic treatment plan for persistent pain

In addition to the fantastic content of the webinar itself, our practitioner community will also receive: 

  • Live and ongoing on-demand access to webinar content
  • Premier access to clinical resources and tools
  • Exclusive event discount offer 
  • 2 CPE Points
