Seminar: Nutritional Support for Pain and Inflammation

Presenter: Dr. Bill Hemmer, DC
July 12th, 2014: 9:00am – 6:00pm
July 13th, 2014: 9:00am – 1:00pm

Location:

It’s no secret that pain and inflammation are among the most common patient complaints today. While inflammation is a normal and beneficial process, research has proven that chronic inflammation can be extremely destructive, linking it to asthma, allergies, autoimmune disease, heart disease, cancer and more. Your patients are turning to drugs for a solution. An estimated 30 million Americans use NSAIDs for pain, inflammation and other conditions every day. But with increasing information on the side-effects and dangers of these drugs, it’s important to learn how to support your patients naturally through nutrition and lifestyle changes. In this 12-hour CE seminar, Dr. Bill Hemmer, DC will discuss key factors that contribute to an overactive inflammatory response, and present specific nutritional support for every patient in need.

Topics will include:
- The active role of digestion and direct nutritional support for digestive function
- Blood sugar issues and their link to inflammation and pain
- The effects of prolonged subclinical hypothyroidism and adrenal fatigue
- Toxicity issues and the body’s response
- The impact of estrogen dominance and low testosterone
- Selecting the right testing methods

On June 7-8, 2014, Standard Process of North Texas will sponsor “Keys to Healthy Aging: Essentials of Cellular Structural Support” presented by Michael Greer, MD. This 12-hour seminar is co-sponsored by Parker University, and is also approved for 12 DACBN Educational Credit Hours.

The wholistic clinician understands that collagen is the building block for bone tissue and that it is also present in skin, hair and nails. Collagen is lost as we age which may play a big role in causing skin to sag and wrinkle, and may also contribute to deterioration in bone quality /
quantity among other symptoms. Diseases and disorders of the skin, hair and nails can be local or they may be caused by an underlying systemic problem, therefore, information obtained provides clues to a patient's overall level of functioning, thereby assisting the wholistic clinician in further supporting a patient's health. This seminar will give the wholisitic clinician the necessary tools for further evaluating the nutritional component of their patients in order to support them naturally to promote health and wellness!

Seminar Highlights include:
• Skin Health - natural weapons and strategies, assessing overall health
• Hormones and influence on skin (estrogen, testosterone deficiency, thyroid)
• Hair as a measure of nutrition and health
• The association of nail anatomy and physiology with nutrient and mineral deficiencies
• Understanding role and connection between skin, hair and nails in assessing a patient's overall level of functioning

In conjunction with this seminar, Jesse Green, JD will lecture on “Ethics, Risk Management & Coding,” also sponsored by Standard Process of North Texas and co-sponsored by Parker University. THIS 4-HOUR PART OF THE PROGRAM IS NOT APPROVED FOR DACBN EDUCATIONAL CREDIT HOURS.

Common imbalances in these organ/gland systems will be discussed along with natural, effective and non-invasive nutritional and herbal approaches to help put the body back in balance.

A Wholistic Approach to Improving Your Patient's Cardiovascular Health

Presented by: Michael Gaeta, DAc, MS, CDN

April 5-6, 2014
Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine
100 East Broward Blvd., Suite 100
Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33301

Saturday, 9:00am - 6:00pm
Sunday, 9:00am – 1:00pm

CVD is essentially a deficiency condition. In nearly every person it is an unnecessary, preventable and reversible lifestyle-based condition. Improvements in nutrition, physical activity and social/relational health are safer and more effective than pharmaceutical interventions which, characteristically, do nothing to address the root cause of the condition, and merely suppress symptoms while allowing underlying causal factors to worsen. This remarkable seminar demystifies CVD, provides clear insights into its causes, and gives clinicians powerful diet, lifestyle and natural medicine tools to prevent and reverse this devastating condition. Popular myths surrounding the alleged evils of cholesterol are soundly debunked, while offering far more relevant laboratory assessment tools for assessing CV disease risk. Because of the staggering prevalence of this needless disease, this is one of the most important and practical seminars available today. What you will learn from this lecture will help you treat and prevent CVD in your patients and community, preventing suffering and premature death for perhaps thousands of people.

Seminar Goals & Objectives
1. Review cardiovascular physiology and pathology
2. Explore current epidemiological and economic statistics related to CVD and other leading causes of death
3. See through the lies and myths around the alleged evils of cholesterol
4. Clinically relevant laboratory evaluation
5. Learn approaches to diet, exercise and lifestyle to treat and prevent CVD
6. Know how to use herbal and nutritional medicine effectively to benefit patients with cardiovascular disease, and those who would like to prevent it

Essential Inflammation Infrastructure
Instructor: Michael E. Greer, M.D.

Seminar Approach
Inflammation, Arthritis, Pain, Back Pain, Stress and Autoimmunity are all topics of major importance and need a very thorough understanding in the Chiropractic, Naturopathic and Acupuncture community. Back pain accounts for more than $100 billion in annual U.S. healthcare cost and is the second leading cause of physician visits and hospitalizations. Conventional (allopathic) practitioners continue to treat all of the above conditions with pain medication while, at the same time, pain medications were involved in 14,800 overdose deaths in 2008 -- more than cocaine and heroin combined, and three times the rate in 1999. This seminar will detail the mechanisms for the initiation of pain and its subsequent initiation and propagation of autoimmune disease. A detailed cell physiology approach to this topic will provide a firm understanding for future patient care.
