cGP and its Involvement with Microcirculation and Nerve Functions

Practitioner only event | Free

cGP (cyclic Glycine-Proline) is an endogenous molecule that plays a key role in making small blood vessels. Around the age of 45, the body’s production of cGP is no longer sufficient to the body’s needs. In addition, low levels of cGP correlate with cognitive decline associated with age and neurodegenerative diseases.

Learn the function and importance of cGP in relation to healthy blood vessels and in maintaining the function of IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1), a hormone essential for maintaining microcirculation and organ function. IGF-1 function declines with age and to maintain IGF-1 function our body needs cGP. This allows for rebuilding capillary networks around organs.

The webinar will also cover research on cGP and its promising role in metabolic disorders.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn how the discovery of natural cGP from foods lead to the nutraceutical development of an oral cGP supplement
  • Understand the unique pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of natural cGP
  • Discover the mechanism of natural cGP in regulating, not over stimulating, or inhibiting IGF-1 function
  • Learn how cGP regenerates and revitalises healthy blood vessels to better protect from age-related decline

Session 2: The Neurotransmitter Connection to Stress - Case Studies and Clinical Applications

Presented by Dr Scott Theirl, DC (Doctors Data)

Thursday 9 May | | 12 – 1pm NZDT

Case studies are always a great opportunity to solidify clinical applications. Responses to stress vary patient by patient. Insomnia, fatigue, anxiousness, depressive episodes, poor attention, increased pain, GI distress, and weight gain are some of the most common presentations to our offices. Looking for common threads is crucial to supporting patients on their road to health. The nervous system uses neurotransmitters all day, everyday, and stress places an increased demand on these neurotransmitter systems. Join Dr Scott Theirl as he discusses why neurotransmitters, along with hormones such as cortisol, are key to understanding your patients stress responses and symptoms. The basic concepts involved in neurotransmitter interpretation will be reviewed. Case studies will then be utilised to personalise therapeutic recommendations.

Topical issues in environmental health

Practitioner only event

Join Dr Dwan Vilcins as she takes a deep dive into an issue that affects us all – Environmental Health. The information presented will span air pollution exposure in the home, how climate change will interact with environmental exposures, and the external exposure to internal pathways relevant to clinical practice.

Learning Objectives

  • The home environment is frequently a major site of air pollution exposure, and every day activities can dramatically affect our air quality
  • Children are at increased risk of environmental exposure
  • Climate change is expected to worsen many environmental hazards, and some interventions need careful planning as they can create additional risk
  • Research is underway to explore the internal pathways that mediate adverse effects, and complementary medicine practitioners have a role in addressing these

Revealing the Root Cause Drivers in Cardiometabolic Syndrome and Low Testosterone in Men

Practitioner Only

Cardiometabolic syndrome comprises some of the most prevalent chronic illnesses plaguing men over 35 years old and the incidence rates are increasing in the developed world. It is imperative that we identify and mitigate the root cause drivers of cardiometabolic diseases and recent discoveries, from human microbiome studies, suggests that the microbiome may play a causal role in the onset and progression of numerous conditions under this umbrella. If the microbiome is a key driver, it signifies that an ecological problem is at the root and that the ecosystem could be modulated to dramatically reduce risk.

This lecture will outline the role of the microbiome in the onset and progression of cardiometabolic syndrome and low testosterone in men and will discuss mitigating strategies that can easily be incorporated into practice.
