Research on Glycocalyx Regeneration and Nitric Oxide

Expanding the supplement toolbox with cardiovascular support

Practitioner only event | Free

Vascular dysfunction is prevalent and increases with age. There are implications not just for the heart, but for every organ and system. This talk highlights three interconnected upstream factors for wellness plans:

  1. The foundational role of the inner lining of the blood vessel health
  2. Why endothelial glycocalyx support and nitric oxide support are synergistic
  3. How to evaluate the individuals who may need vascular-focused dietary supplementation as part of their wellness plan

Expert clinician Dr DeSilva will describe the science and research behind centering vascular support in wellness plans, as well as the top 2 dietary supplements he uses and why.

Learning Objectives

  • Evaluate evidence for the glycocalyx-regenerating compound rhamnan sulfate from Monostroma nitidum
  • Review why endothelial glycocalyx support and nitric oxide support are synergistic
  • Evaluate the individuals who may need vascular-focused dietary supplementation as part of their wellness plan

PANS/PANDAS – A Clinical Approach

Practitioner only event | Free

PANDAS and PANS are creating a paradigm shift in the mental health landscape as we begin to understand that immune activity in the body affects the brain and its function.

They are neuroimmune conditions in which infectious and/or environmental triggers initiate an autoimmune response in the brain, primarily in the basal ganglia, thereby affecting a child’s behaviour.

The Core 4 of a functional medicine approach to PANS/PANDAS will be discussed, including how to set the foundation of a treatment protocol around “botanical avatars” for PANS/PANDAS.

Learning Objectives

  • To identify the most common infectious and/or environmental agents preceding the onset of PANDAS or PANS symptoms
  • To gain an understanding of the mechanisms of injury to the brain from the infectious and/or environmental triggers
  • How the mechanisms to injury relate to the observed symptoms and behaviour changes in a child
  • To learn emerging treatments that may be used to address the causes contributing to the neuroinflammation and changes in neurochemistry, immunity, and the gut microbiome

Inflammation Lunch and Learn Webinar Series 2024

Practitioner only event | Free

Inflammation is an underlying factor in many of the health concerns our patients struggle with today. From seemingly unrelated conditions such as ligament damage, long COVID, and migraine, we find that assessing and addressing their inflammation levels can often be the best approach to supporting their health goals – and is an approach clinically supported by research.

In this 4-part webinar series, Dr Clark will discuss four areas that share similar treatment approaches and explain how to assess when the dysfunction is most closely associated with inflammation. Register now to learn about the latest research to support inflammatory health and disease states, including protocols, timelines and patient resources.

Session 5: Assessing the Gut Barrier Function and Addressing Intestinal Permeability

Presented by Dr Kristi J. Morlan-Hughes, ND (KBMO)

Thursday 15 August  | 12 – 1pm NZDT

Dr Kristi discusses the unique resources within KBMO, when you might consider using a FIT test, what the Gut Barrier Panel covers and how to determine to what degree the gut barrier and microbiota is involved in the patients’ clinical condition. She discusses key biomarkers of intestinal permeability and how the tracking of these can help identify severity, progression and track a patient’s progress through to potential recovery.

Practitioner Only Event

Join ACNEM for their Annual Conference: The Interplay Between Longevity and Autoimmunity.

This immersive experience brings together renowned experts to explore the latest research in longevity and autoimmunity. 

In pre-disposed individuals, immune ageing can lead to frank autoimmune disease, manifesting with chronic inflammation and irreversible tissue damage. Emerging data support the concept that autoimmunity results from ageing-induced failure of fundamental cellular processes, genomic instability, loss of mitochondrial fitness, failing proteostasis, dwindling lysosomal degradation and inefficient autophagy. 

The conference shines a spotlight on the underlying mechanisms of both autoimmunity and longevity. Many of the dietary and lifestyle interventions and evidence-based treatment protocols designed to prevent and reverse autoimmunity are the same approaches used to enhance longevity.

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.
