Reversing Autoimmunity Through Mycotherapy: The Use of Medicinal Mushrooms in Inflammation 

Medicinal mushrooms can be powerful agents to support and prevent autoimmune diseases through their use as Biological Response Modifiers (BRM).  Mushrooms contain a veritable bounty of natural adaptogenic compounds including  beta-glucans, antioxidants such as triterpenes, glycoprotein and ergosterols making them extremely beneficial for building natural resistance to excess inflammation and disease. Catalina Fernandez will introduce us to Mycotherapy and walk us through the multiple actions mushrooms can have on immunity.

About Catalina Fernández de Ana Portela

Catalina Fernández de Ana Portela is a biologist expert in Mycology and founder of Hifas da Terra. She has built a life and business around the beneficial properties of medicinal mushrooms studying their composition and creating innovative products. It is her ambition to create awareness of the healing properties of mushrooms on our well-being. Her continuous investigations further confirmed these living organisms to be powerful adaptogens capable of regulating the immune system and protecting the body from a large variety of diseases and health issues.

Catalina has been presented with a number of awards for her remarkable work and visionary approach by creating biotech products of high added value from a natural resource: mushrooms.

Anne Pemberton, MSc, PGCHE, PGCE(Autism), RGN, DipION, fHEA, mCNHC, fBANT, NMC

Personalised approaches to addressing autoimmune conditions

Anne will explore how to reverse engineer autoimmunity in those with Autism Spectrum Disorders and Myalgic Encephalitis. She will demonstrate an understanding of the impact of the cell danger response and the use of Nutrigenomics to guide an individualised approach. Anne’s approach will be brought to life with case studies from her own clinical practice.

About Anne Pemberton

Anne’s career spans 30 years of cardiothoracic intensive care nursing. She was blessed with a son, later diagnosed with autism. Her son’s diagnosis totally changed her career trajectory as she looked to natural therapies to support him. Anne retrained in psychology then later in Nutrition. She practices functional medicine and runs a busy international clinic specialising in Autism spectrum disorders and chronic fatigue syndrome.

She is also a published co-author and established international speaker. Since 2008 Anne has been teaching academic and clinical modules on Nutritional therapy courses, She took over as course director for the MSC in Nutritional Therapy at the Northern College of Acupuncture in York, in 2010. The course is now one of the leading UK courses. Anne has a real passion for the study and practical application of Nutrigenomics and has co-developed the first NTEC accredited UK course Functional medicine approach to Nutrigenomics. She has also been regular contributor for IHCAN magazine.

12.45 – 14.00
Lunch

Enjoy a three course gluten-free buffet lunch, with time to network with peers and exhibitors.

Tom O’Bryan

Fire in the Hole: Intestinal Permeability, The Development of Autoimmune Disease, and a Comprehensive Approach to Healing the Gut

Autoimmune diseases are a primary cause of morbidity and mortality in the industrialised world. That means it’s in our offices every day. The number of people diagnosed with an autoimmune disease is increasing exponentially. Estimates are that anywhere from 3 to 7 out of every 10 new patients coming into your office are suffering from an autoimmune mechanism (whether it has been recognised and diagnosed or not). The volume of information now of the underlying mechanisms that set the stage and contribute to the development of autoimmune disease is overwhelming.

About Tom O'Bryan

Tom O’Bryan is a world expert on gluten and it’s impact on your health. He is an internationally recognised and sought after speaker and workshop leader specialising in the complications of Non-Coeliac Gluten Sensitivity, Coeliac Disease, and the development of Autoimmune Diseases as they occur inside and outside of the intestines. He is the founder of www.theDr.com and the visionary behind ‘The Gluten Summit – A Grain of Truth’, bringing together 29 of the world’s experts on the Gluten connection to diseases, disorders, and a wide-range of symptoms and ages. You can find this info at www.theglutensummit.com.

Tom O’Bryan is considered the ‘Sherlock Holmes’ for chronic disease and metabolic disorders. He is a clinician par excellence in treating chronic disease and metabolic disorders from a Functional Medicine Perspective. He holds adjunct Faculty positions with the Institute for Functional Medicine and the National University of Health Sciences. He has trained thousands of practitioners around the world in advanced understanding of the impact of food related disorders and the development of individual autoimmune diseases.

His 2016 critically acclaimed ground-breaking book, ‘The Autoimmune Fix’ outlines the step-by-step development of degenerative diseases and gives us the tools to identify our disease process years before the symptoms are obvious.
