‘IBS – a disorder of gut-brain interaction’

Presented by Hannah Braye LLB (Hons), DipCNM, mBANT

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is the most common functional gastrointestinal disorder in the industrialized world. It can have a significant impact on client’s quality of life, effecting various social aspects and having psychological ramifications. Now classed as a disorder of gut-brain interaction, it has a number of associated comorbidities, including anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, migraine and chronic fatigue. There is now a substantial body of evidence that a distortion in the biodiversity and composition of the gut microbiota (gut dysbiosis) plays a fundamental role in the pathogenesis of the condition, and various therapeutic strategies designed to favorably alter the gut ecosystem have been reported to improve IBS symptoms. In this webinar we will cover IBS epidemiology, diagnosis, pathogenesis, co-morbidities, conventional treatments and the potential role of microbiota manipulation in alleviating symptoms, with a particular focus on the benefits of probiotic supplementation.

‘Thyroid Disorders – How to Address Them in Clinical Practice’

Presented by Sarah Oboh BSc (Hons) Nutrition, Nutritionist

Graves’ Disease, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, hypothyroidism, goitre…..there are many manifestations of thyroid disorder. It is therefore important for us, as practitioners, to understand the nature of these conditions in order to ably support our clients with tailored therapeutic interventions. Research suggests that autoimmunity is one of the major causes of thyroid dysfunction, but a lot remains to be discovered as to why this occurs. During this webinar, we will explore the pathophysiology of different thyroid disorders and their relationship with gastrointestinal health. We will also assess the role of the gut microbiota in the development of thyroid disease, plus a holistic and practical approach to supporting these conditions in clinical practice.

‘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.
