Upon the completion of the seminar, attendees will be able to:

  • Recognize 24 common and newly highlighted patterns in thyroid imbalances
  • Understand the clinical implications of thyroid-immune-nervous system-endocrine crosstalk
  • Understand the impact of thyroid hormones on every major physiological process
  • Conduct a step-by-step approach to a thyroid physical exam

  • America’s epidemic
  • The human microbiome—new insights into how our microbial community
  • Lifestyle and nutritional strategies for gut health and obesity
  • Natural approaches for blood sugar dysregulation
  • Strategies to initiate the positive impact of gut health on the musculoskeletal system

The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is responsible for regulating the traffic of molecules between the environment and the body through a barrier mechanism. When this precise trafficking of molecules becomes dysregulated, metabolism can be altered, and the musculoskeletal system can also be affected. To truly improve on each individual’s overall health, it is important to understand how each system interacts with others.

Dr. Silverman will share his knowledge and expertise in nutritional protocols. He will discuss the fundamental concepts behind the microbiome and its influences on metabolism, body composition, and musculoskeletal health—as well as its potential connection to the development of type 2 diabetes.This seminar will help practitioners understand the ever-evolving field of gut health, giving a solid foundation in strategies to understand the impact of the microbiome. Natural strategies and nutritional protocols will also be reviewed for clinical application of metabolic detoxification.

Today’s health and wellness practitioners understand the importance of monitoring and supporting the endocrine health of their patients. This dynamic system regulates and influences every cellular and physiological process of the human body. The health and balance of this system is directly associated with one’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

The thyroid and adrenal glands are particularly challenged by the demands of the modern lifestyle, enduring and adapting to chronic stress from external and internal factors. This Endocrine Wellness presentation, “Practical Applications for Adrenal & Thyroid Health”, provides practitioners with simple, accurate evaluation methods and reliable protocols to establish and support the health of these vital endocrine glands.

Practicing Endocrine Wellness effectively with patients is simply a matter of understanding a few key principles, knowing the proper testing and evaluation methods, managing lifestyle factors, and implementing the most effective protocols for change. This seminar will provide practitioners with this basic knowledge, so they can begin applying the principles and protocols of Endocrine Wellness immediately with struggling patients.

At least 40 million Americans each year suffer from chronic disruptive sleep, while an additional 20 million experience only occasional sleep disturbances. The result of these disturbances interfere with work, driving and social activities. Not to mention the enormous medical costs each year, lost productivity and other factors. Research is now showing that our brains are very active during sleep and can affect our physical and mental health, as well as our daily functioning and is necessary for survival.

This seminar will provide attendees with a simple yet effective way to monitor and support the overall health of their patients, with emphasis on how fatigue and sleep related issues could interfere and have a negative effect on the musculoskeletal system. Dr. Hogsed will focus on understanding why fatigue and poor sleep are common symptoms today; how the chiropractic and holistic doctor can take the difficulty out of assessing the root cause; understanding and identifying clues for fatigue and sleep health assessment and much more.

  • Common vs. normal – why fatigue and poor sleep are such common symptoms
  • Functional nutrition for cellular energy support and nervous system health
  • Subjective clues for fatigue and sleep health assessment as an adjunct tool
  • Functional nutrition for brain health: link between healthy blood sugar disturbances and cognitive dysfunction

Tuition is $249 before October 21, 2016, including CEUs, seminar manual, protein shakes, product sample station and breakfast each day with afternoon beverages.

SPEAKERS:
Michael Greer, MD (12 Hours)

The gut mucosa, as well as the other mucosal surfaces, can be seen as an extension of our sensory system. The GI system contains a very large amount of lymphatic tissue and is the only organ in the body with its own independently working lymphatic and nervous system. The mucosal surfaces deal with the largest amount of antigens configuration in order to fulfill the delicate task of distinguishing between pathogenic bacteria and toxins, and the beneficial substances like food particles and commensal bacteria. GI malfunction can be responsible for many inflammatory conditions, allergic and immune dysfunctions.

This seminar will provide attendees with a simple yet effective way to monitor and support the overall health of their patients with emphasis on the digestive, detoxification, endocrine and immune systems. Holistic nutrition is the adjunctive use of diet and food supplements and is a supportive tool used by today’s chiropractic and wellness doctor!

Understanding the intricate details of the GI system and mechanisms of common issues such as inflammatory conditions in the intestinal tract, gluten intolerance symptoms and triggers that may activate these and related complaints

  • A thorough understanding of the principles of digestive wellness
  • Leaky gut intestinal permeability – what is it?
  • Gluten sensitivity – testing
  • Understanding autoimmune disorders
  • And much more!

Understanding, Evaluating and Addressing Autoimmune Disorders
DATE: May 21, 2016
LOCATION: Windsor Locks, CT
Logan College of Chiropractic
6.5 hours Available
Dr. William “Bill” Kleber

  • Basic anatomy and physiology of the thyroid
  • Thyroid function testing
  • Why basic thyroid testing is not good enough and leads to incorrect statistics
  • Diagnosing and treating hypo- and hyper-thyroid states.
  • Iodine and its benefits, as well as caution in its use.
  • Autoimmune disease and its huge role in thyroid disorders.
  • Case studies. Treatments and protocols for treating thyroid disorders.
  • Why you should not compete with the allopaths in trying to lower it.
  • Lipid fractionation and the real causes of heart disease.
  • The benefits of a fat-based metabolism.
  • Independent factor in heart disease.
  • The relationship between fats, cholesterol, diabetes and fatigue.

Rising rates of autoimmune conditions demand that the insightful practitioner have a keen knowledge of not only how the immune system functions, but we must also understand what happens when the immune response is abnormal and the communication mechanisms of the immune system are broken down. Before we can attempt to address autoimmune challenges, we must see the big picture.This presentation will focus on the cells involved with the immune system and how they communicate. We will evaluate the causes of the immune system aberrant communication and how the abnormal response results in pathology and illness. Transgenerational and other causes of autoimmunity through infectious diseases such as Epstein Barr Virus and Mycoplasma will be explored with a focus on treatment and prevention.

Functional Blood Chemistry: Blood Sugar, Digestion & Liver Function as Seen on Common Blood Tests
Instructor: Ronda Nelson, PhD, ND, MH, CNC

Course goals:
To provide attendees with a concise way to evaluate common physiological dysfunctions on blood tests. Emphasis is on the evaluation and understanding of specific patterns which can be seen when markers are observed in relationship with one another. Basic review of the CBC, CMP and lipid panel will be covered along with markers specific to digestive insufficiencies, blood sugar handling issues and hepato/biliary markers. Participants will have greater understanding of blood testing in general and be provided an extensive course syllabus with references on each marker discussed along with reference charts of common patterns of dysfunctions. Emphasis will focus on the usefulness and clinical relevance of serum testing to enhance clinical outcomes.

Upon completion of this course, attendees will:

  • Have a basic understanding of over 35 blood markers as seen on the CBC, CMP and Lipid panels
  • Recognize specific serum patterns indicating possible dysfunctions in digestive function, glucose handling and liver health
  • Be able to extract useful clinical information by evaluating blood chemistry patterns
  • Recognize the 5 most common dysfunctions seen on the blood chemistry panels discussed

Kinesiology and Functional Aspects of Digestion; Immune Optimization; Allergy and Lung Challenges; Blood Sugar and Bone and Calcium Metabolism
This seminar will provide the understanding of what Kinesiology is: A scientific method of assessment that augments traditional methods used by today’s health care practitioner. It focuses on how a person is functioning in his structural and nutritional makeup, among other functions, and assists the health care practitioner to prioritize the patients’ health needs. This additional information will give the practitioner added confidence to determine the appropriate support intervention!
Seminar Highlights include:

  • Testing to determine if support needed is structural, supplemental, dietary or acupuncture
  • Demonstrating the need, value & benefit of the therapy, dosing and timing of supplementation
  • Functional aspects of digestion – dietary triggers, histamine correlations and nutritional support, pancreatic enzymes, small and large intestines, GABA relationship and more
  • Immune optimization – spleen and thymus function, their spinal and muscular correlations, autoimmune triggers, food triggers and appropriate support
  • Allergy and lung challenges – methods to determine if allergen is the trigger or if supporting lung, stomach or adrenals would be more beneficial
  • Blood sugar – signs and symptoms of poor insulin response as well as the associated muscles and spinal levels; adrenal response in stabilizing blood sugar
  • Bone and calcium metabolism – overview of stomach and parathyroid in bone health

Tuition is $249 before Jan. 29, 2016, including CEUs, seminar manual and breakfast each day and afternoon beverages.
