Although live education is back and more exciting than ever, we know how well-received online IHCAN education has been over the past 18 months, so that’s why it’s here to stay!

We’ve got world-class speakers and, thanks to a bespoke bit of techno-wizardry, you’ll enjoy a virtual expo featuring specialist practitioner suppliers as well as short break-out sessions and online networking.

Join headline speakers Dr Sam Yanuck, DC, the functional immunology expert, and naturopathic physician Dr Cheryl Burdette, ND, both returning by popular demand.

 

How is it different to the IHCAN Conference Webinars?
 

Using a brand new, bespoke, virtual conference and expo platform, the IHCAN Conferences Virtual Event is a whole-day event with multiple live sessions and a virtual exhibition – bringing the “in-person” conference experience direct to your device.

How does it work?

 

We’re using a bespoke virtual conference and expo platform – you don’t need to  download any additional software and it will work on every device.

It works best on Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox and we recommend you make sure your browser is up-to-date.

Alternatively, for mobile there’s a simply app to download.

We’ll send you access details two weeks before the event.

What exhibitors will be featured?
 

Demand for “stands” is high and we’re adding new companies as fast as we can organise virtual space, so keep checking back, but some of the suppliers confirmed so far include:

Functional Gut Diagnostics
Green People
The Nutrition Network
IHCAN magazine

They’re all showcasing their new products, latest research and show-only offers.

Featuring:

‘Chronic Fatigue, Brain Fog, and Pain – unlocking the connections’
Dr. Samuel F. Yanuck DC, FACFN, FIAMA

Brain fog and fatigue are two of the most common symptoms in functional medicine practice. Pain can be one of the most challenging. Dr. Yanuck will discuss the immunological underpinnings of these problems, show you how they’re often connected to each other and to other factors you already know how to identify, and teach you practical steps for addressing them effectively.

About Dr. Sam Yanuck
 

Dr. Sam Yanuck has been in practice since 1992. He sees patients with complex chronic conditions from all over the world, including problems involving complex autoimmune and autoinflammatory conditions, persistent fatigue, chronic inflammation, digestive dysregulation, failure to recover from head injuries, difficulty overcoming chronic infection, reactivity to foods or factors in their environment, and other complex issues.

He is the creator and chief educator of Cogence Immunology, an online functional immunology course for clinicians. Over 5,000 clinicians around the world have become students in Dr. Yanuck’s online course, studying a library of well over 200 immunology instructional videos.

Dr. Yanuck is an adjunct assistant professor in the Program on Integrative Medicine, in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, where he teaches principles of functional immunology and other topics related to the treatment of chronically ill patients.

Dr. Yanuck believes that each patient’s health problems are caused by a unique matrix of factors and that identifying, understanding and correctly addressing that unique matrix is essential to your successful outcome. His approach integrates immunology, body chemistry, nutrition, lab analysis, functional neurology and manual medicine, and other methods into a single working process. This combination of clinical tools allows him to address each factor in your problem matrix with the clinical approach that matches it best. He takes plenty of time with each patient, takes no shortcuts, and tailors his extensive knowledge and experience to your specific needs. Correctly addressing the causes of your problems optimizes your health now and sets you on a path to better health across your whole life span.

Dr. Yanuck works with patients in every stage of health and disease, working together with you to achieve your best possible level of health and vitality, so you can pursue the things that are important to you.

‘Phytonutrients and the Management of Thyroid Health; Understanding the Oxidative Concern’
Dr Cheryl Burdette, N.D

After her riveting presentation at our last Virtual Event, naturopathic physician Dr Cheryl Burdette, ND, returns to review advances in thyroid management that embrace naturopathic principles. She will review environmental toxicology as it applies to thyroid and other underlying causative factors such as oxidative stress and a disrupted microbiome. She will review pharmacologic and phytonutrient interventions.

Cheryl tells us: “Decades ago, the Journal of Endocrinology reported that conventional reference ranges for thyroid function were missing half the population that may have thyroid disorder. Armed with this knowledge, naturopathic doctors have become skilled at reading between the lines, or interpreting thyroid levels in more ‘functional’ reference ranges, resulting in better patient outcomes.

“Using adequate reference ranges is a good first step, but we also ask the question of why is thyroid dysfunctional in the first place – to engage in root cause medicine. This lecture will examine interconnections between the microbiome and thyroid. We will look at oxidative stress and its implication on autoimmune thyroiditis. We will review environmental toxins as related to thyroid health. We will examine interconnections between thyroid and the rest of the endocrine system.

“This approach is highly evidence-based in terms of quality thyroid management”.

Learning Objectives:
• Understanding thyroid from a naturopathic approach
• Understanding how metabolic endotoxins from the gut interact with thyroid and cause dysregulation with production of thyroid hormone and receptor function
• Examine underlying connections of oxidative stress and how this increases autoimmunity.
She will tackle:
* Environmental trends as they relate to thyroid health.
* Nrf2 transcription and glutathione peroxidase in thyroid autoimmunity, environmental applications.
* LPS and Bifidobacterium as they relate to thyroid function.
* Pharmacologic interventions and nutrient interactions.
* Botanical management, research updates.

She is an often-sought speaker and is invited to present at Grand Rounds at all of the Naturopathic medical schools as well as educational events for M.D.s, D.O.s and other allied healthcare practitioners.
