‘Viruses and Viral Infections: Natural Therapies’
Tuesday 6 March 2018, 18.30 – 19.30

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

Viruses have the capacity to enter cells, snip off sections of DNA or RNA and weave them into their own genetic structure; they are said to ‘aid the intermingling of all life forms on earth’.

Whilst many viruses do not cause disease and are necessary components of their host’s life, these particles are also infectious agents that may result in a variety of symptoms and, in some cases, death.  Viruses evolve faster than anything else of the planet and can cause the common cold and cold sores as well as epidemics and pandemics.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • Viral respiratory infections
  • Viral encephalitis infections
  • Gastrointestinal viral infections
  • Herpesviridae family of viruses (including HSV, EBV, varicella zoster and cytomegalovirus)
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and association with some cancers
  • Strengthening the immune system
  • The threat of emerging viruses
  • Acute, chronic and latent infections
  • immunodeficiency
  • Diet and Lifestyle to support anti-viral protocols
  • Herbal anti-virals and mechanisms by which these have effect

‘The Gut: Where Bacteria and Immune System Meet’
Tuesday 20 March 2018, 18.30 – 19.30

Presented by Christina Georgallou BSc (Hons), DipCNM

 

It is now understood that the gastrointestinal wall is home to 70% of the cells that make up the immune system. The gut microbiota that resides in the gastrointestinal tract provides essential health benefits to its host, particularly by regulating immune homeostasis. Moreover, it has recently become obvious that alterations of these gut microbial colonies can cause immune dysregulation, leading to autoimmune disorders and allergies.

During this webinar, Christina Georgallou will review the advances in our understanding of how the gut microbiota regulates innate and adaptive immune homeostasis and the evidence validating a strain specific probiotic approach to supporting a client’s immunity in practice.

‘Great Minds: Optimising brain health and performance with natural nootropics’
Tuesday 27 March 2018, 18.30 – 19.30

Presented by Phoebe Liebling BSc (Hons) DipNT mBANT mNNA rCNHA rGNC

Modern lifestyles are extremely taxing to our mental faculties and nervous system. Rarely do we consider food as the fuel for our brain. We are constantly stimulated by externalities, often reducing the quality of our sleep, mood and cognitive function. All these factors affect our mental performance, our ability to deal with oxidative stress, and our rate of neurodegeneration. It’s time we placed the brain at the centre of our holistic approach to health.

Through lifestyle, food and supplemental choices, how can we support our brain to operate at its highest level while increasing our chances of disease-free longevity?

This webinar will focus on the micronutrients required by the brain for long term performance and health, with an introduction to Motion Nutrition’s new range of nootropics formulated by Miguel Toribio-Mateas: Power Up and Unplug.

‘Digestive Enzymes: Clinical Considerations in IBS, SIBO, Dysbiosis and the Leaky Gut’
Tuesday 8 May 2018, 18.30 – 19.30

Presented by Dr Michael Murray

 

An in-depth look into the underlying core issues in these common GI disturbances along with a focus on the clinical use of plant and microbial derived enzyme will be presented. From dealing with food intolerances, incomplete digestion, biofilm, and microbial adherence, there is a growing scientific rationale on the use of digestive enzymes in a wide range of functional GI disorders.

Some of the questions to be answered in the webinar include: Is fecal pancreatic elastase a true indicator of pancreatic enzyme insufficiency? What causes biofilm formation and how can digestive enzymes help dissolve biofilm? What role do digestive secretions play in the prevention of SIBO? How do digestive enzymes influence the microbiome? Plus, there will be a question and answer session at the end of the webinar.
