BioCeuticals Clinical Mastery. Rebuilding Patients After Cancer Treatment

Session 1: Wednesday, 10th Aug: 7.30-8.45 PM (AEST)
Session 2: Wednesday, 17th Aug: 7.30-8.45 PM (AEST)

Webinar series

Organiser: BioCeuticals
Presenter: Dr Janet Schloss
Cost: AU$29 inc. gst
Duration: 2 online sessions. 75 minutes each.

Session 1: Clinical Masterclass.

Many cancer survivors will experience late and long-term side effects as a result of their treatment and/or their cancer. Natural and integrated medicine practitioners can play an essential role in the recovery and post-treatment of people who have completed cancer treatment.

Most research focuses on what complementary medicines can be used during cancer treatment to minimise treatment side effects, increase treatment efficacy and quality of life. However, more focus is now being directed to post cancer treatment care. Survivorship plans and the discussion of post treatment complications is increasing exponentially as the number of cancer survivors rise.

People feel that they should be back to ‘normal’ as soon as they finish their cancer treatment, but their ‘new normal’ needs our support. It is important to rationalise your treatment approach based on individual patient needs, status, condition, and situation as patient-centred care is paramount.

This 60-minute session will focus on the evidence-based approaches which assist people who have completed cancer treatment by covering the effective physical, emotional, psychological, psychosocial and lifestyle treatment options available for patient-led care and how to implement them.

Session 2: Clinical Solutions

Dr Janet Schloss and Sarah Clarke will translate the research highlights and patient management insights from Session 1 into actionable insights that you can effortlessly integrate into your clinical practice.

This live and online masterclass will draw on a real-life clinical case study to ensure you return to your clinic with greater confidence supporting patients to thrive as they recover and ‘rebuild’ after cancer and cancer treatment.

15 minutes of the session will be dedicated to live Q+A.

* The content of Clinical Mastery is intended to provide high-level information for healthcare professionals and may not include all relevant information in relation to medications/drug interactions/product ingredients. Specific and tailored advice is required for each patient.

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.

Short intro:

Chronic inflammatory diseases are the most significant cause of death globally. In fact, more than 50% of all deaths are attributed to inflammation-related diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, cancer, chronic kidney disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and autoimmune and neurodegenerative disorders.

Although acute inflammation is critical for survival during physical injury and infection, resolution of inflammation is vital to restore homeostasis. Recent research has identified several social, environmental and lifestyle factors which promote systemic, chronic inflammation and initiate disease. Fortunately, evidence is also growing in support of natural medicine strategies to address these factors and mitigate systemic inflammation.

Key Learning outcomes:

  • The relevance of the oral microbiome for oral and systemic health
  • How oral dysbiosis contributes to several systemic diseases
  • How magnesium status influences inflammatory parameters
  • What is the impact of chronic mild metabolic acidosis on inflammatory markers
  • The bi-directional link between inflammation and mental health
  • How does inflammation and dysfunctional immune activation impact brain health
  • What are biotoxins and how do they cause damage in the body
  • Why diagnosis of CIRS is so challenging and which tests can aid identification
