‘Adapting to Stress and Anxiety in the Modern World: How Adaptogens, Nervines & Tonics Can Help – Natural Therapies with Rio Health’

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

Modern world stressors challenge us all. Whether the stress associates with financial obligations, loss of a loved one, divorce, job loss, house move, or chronic illness or injury, these all can impact health and wellbeing—physical, mental and emotional. In addition to these long-recognised stressors, some of our clients face new modern day stressors including technostress (caused by an inability to cope with new computer technologies in a healthy manner), social media/cyber-bullying at school or workplace, and concerns around scams, hacking and identity theft.

And, to this we can all add stress associated with the current pandemic, concern about issues like climate change, and exposure to various chemical pollutants in our air, water and food.  These specific and daily stressors can negatively impact health in a variety of ways—most notably impacting sleep, causing stress headaches, affecting breathing, causing premature ageing, reducing fertility and reducing immune resistance. These stressors can impact adrenal and whole body health, generally also leading to fatigue, poor concentration/focus, increased irritability and a feeling of loss of control.

Every client will be facing stress at some level—for some the stress may be the cause or trigger for their health condition; and for most, stress will impact the recovery or healing process. Ideally, we need to be able to adapt and find flexibility in our responses to these modern day challenges.

Almost every protocol might benefit from the addition of a botanical product with adaptogenic or tonic action.  By understanding the differences between adaptogens, nervines and tonics and the other actions of specific botanicals, practitioners can make more informed protocol choices to meet their clients’ needs.

In this webinar we will look at similarities and differences between these categories/properties of herbs which can help the body adapt to stress, aid recovery and convalescence and help to restore and maintain wellbeing.  We will look at the benefits of using tonic herbs to strengthen and nourish body tissues, with information provided about different categories of tonic herbs: mucous membrane tonics, immune tonics, connective tissue tonics, vascular tonics, liver tonics, respiratory tonics and adrenal tonics.

‘Autoimmune Disease from the Perspective of the Microbiome’

Presented by Kim Plaza, MSc, BSc (Hons), mBANT, CNHC

This session is aimed at practitioners wanting to expand their knowledge of autoimmune disease from the perspective of the microbiome. We will cover potential mechanisms and pathways via which microbes may influence and mediate the immune system and review current evidence for modulating the microbiota in autoimmune conditions, with a particular focus on ulcerative colitis. Attendees will gain a fuller picture of how the microbiome may play a role in cases of autoimmunity, with the objective to:

  • Refresh attendees’ knowledge on the role of the gut microbiome
  • Explore key mechanisms that may be involved in the development of autoimmunity
  • Learn how the microbiome may play a role in  these mechanisms
  • Evaluate the current evidence for modulating the microbiota in autoimmune conditions
  • Discuss how these principles might apply in cases of ulcerative colitis

‘Butyrate’s impact on the microbiome and neuro function’

Presented by Justine Stenger

Butyrate is one of the best ways to keep our intestinal cells healthy, but did you know that the benefits of butyrate expand beyond gut and brain health?
We are all swimming in a soup of toxicity, chronically exposed to assaults that wreak havoc on our gut and on our brain. What if I told you there was a biological substrate available through supplementation that could support your gut, your brain, your metabolism, and the entire aging process?
This session will be targeted to practitioners who are interested in being at the forefront of the research on butyrate. In this session, you will learn how to use butyrate to support gut health, metabolic health, brain health, detoxification, and so much more. You will learn how butyrate can be used as a tool prophylactically to prevent potential illness and disease, and how it can be used to support the healing process for those who are suffering with chronic illness and disease.
I welcome you to join me in learning all about the benefits of butyrate and how you can use this 4-carbon chain fatty acid in your clinical practice as a tool to support your health and improve your health span.

About Justine Stenger

Justine’s passion is helping people live their healthiest, best life with a focus on using nutrition to improve cognitive functioning.

Justine believes that optimal brain health is available to all of us. Many people are suffering needlessly because of a broken healthcare system. A system that places too much emphasis on symptoms, and treating those symptoms with drugs rather than looking at the root cause of illness and disease…
