Dietary fibre: an old concept in new light?
Tuesday 19 June 2018, 18.30 – 19.30

Presented by Dr Megan Rossi

Dietary fibre has been dubbed the Cinderella nutrient, but could it be the secret for optimal gut health? In recent years, our understanding of dietary fibre has progressed considerably uncovering potential therapeutic opportunities applicable in both health and disease which further supports the importance of healthy plant-based eating patterns. This talk will review the latest evidence, current recommendations and future areas of research to support clinicians in practice.

The key objectives will include:

  • Review the evolution of dietary fibre as a nutrient
  • Investigate mechanisms underpinning its health benefits
  • Understand fibres role in manipulating the gut microbiota
  • Insight into the latest clinical trials
  • Practical tips for translation into practice

Bacteria and Bacterial Infection: Natural Therapies with Rio Health
Tuesday 10 July 2018, 18.30 – 19.30

Presented by Rose Holmes, Nutritionist, BSc, Dip.ION, PGCE, MBANT

Whilst we know that not all bacteria are dangerous, and many have coevolutionary relationship with humans, headlines abound about bacterial ‘superbugs’, highlighting conventional medicine’s increasing inability to ‘combat’ what our generation has considered as ‘treatable’ infections.

Bacteria are intelligent, highly adaptable microorganisms that increase their rate of learning and thus survival in the presence of conventional medicine’s antibiotics.  Resistant strains develop at an alarming rate and we appear to be facing the end of miracle (antibiotic) drugs after significantly less than 100 years’ use.

Whilst the pharmaceutical companies have substantially reduced research into new antibiotics, it is not all doom and gloom in the ‘fight’ against bacterial infection.  Botanical options are available and have shown effect against gastrointestinal bacterial infections, skin infections, urinary tract infections, systemic infections, Lyme and its co-infections and even against resistant bacteria.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • Examples of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria
  • E.coli, Salmonella, Streptococcus and others
  • MRSA ‘superbug’
  • Clostridium difficile
  • Why TB is on the increase
  • Methods used by bacteria to develop and share resistance to antibiotics
  • Infections of skin, urinary tract, gastrointestinal tract and systemic infections
  • Plants with anti-bacterial properties
  • Use of herbs to address endotoxins and as synergists to enhance anti-bacterial herb activity
  • Strengthening the immune system
  • Diet and Lifestyle to support anti-bacterial protocols
