Clinical Management of PCOS and Metabolic Health

From Monday 20 September to Monday 04 October 2021

On-Demand Webinar

Presented by: Angela Hywood
Organiser: MediHerb / Integria Healthcare
When: from Monday 20 September to Monday 04 October
Cost: Practitioners: $30.00 – Students: $24.00
Duration: 60 minutes 

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common reproductive endocrine disorders in women of reproductive age.

It causes significant distress and is a frequent cause of anovulatory infertility, long cycles, heavy periods and acne in women. PCOS also affects body image and emotional wellbeing, as well as substantially increasing a woman’s likelihood of metabolic abnormalities, predisposing them to insulin resistance, cardiovascular risk, dyslipidaemia, endothelial dysfunction and systemic inflammation.

Despite this, the aetiology of PCOS remains poorly understood and often receives either a delayed diagnosis or a misdiagnosis. Medical treatment options are limited, frequently leaving women dissatisfied and frustrated with their therapy. As a result, women regularly seek complementary and alternative medicine treatment to re-set PCOS and positively restore their menstrual cycle, metabolic health, mental wellbeing and fertility.

In this presentation Angela Hywood will explore the metabolic precursors affecting this condition, using current scientific understanding and its implications in reproductive health. Angela will also share her herbal and nutritional treatment approaches to PCOS, based on her extensive clinical experience in this crucial area of healthcare.

Lunch & Learn 2 part series.
Part 1 – Plasmalogens: a new therapeutic target in neurodegeneration

Thursday, October 14th 2021 – 12pm ADST

Lunch and learn

Organiser: BioMedica
Presenter: Dr John Lewis PhD
When: Thursday, October 14th 2021 – 12pm ADST
Cost: Complimentary
Duration: 30 minutes 

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, join Dr John Lewis as he unpacks the fundamentals of plasmalogen biochemistry, their roles in health and disease and the clinical relevance for neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, mild cognitive impairment and Parkinson’s disease. 

Key Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the biological function of plasmalogens 
  • Understand the role of plasmalogens in age-related neurodegeneration
  • Critical appraisal of clinical trial data using Hokkaido scallop derived plasmalogens
  • The application of plasmalogens in clinical practice including dosing, interactions and potential indications beyond neurodegenerative conditions.
