A comprehensive overview of evidence-based therapies for neuroinflammatory disorders - the chronic conditions involving damage to the nervous system by the body’s own immune response. Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease and depression will be presented. This training provides insight into the role of nutritional and environmental medicine and its influence on the underlying physiological issues that contribute to neurodegeneration. Hear the growing scientific evidence behind the treatment options, pathology testing and dietary interventions.
Presentations focus on current, evidence-based information, discussing nutritional and environmental medicine (NEM) approaches for commonly seen conditions. Our specialist practitioners offer strategies and new investigation techniques that will assist health practitioners to further understand the biochemical and physiological processes behind the symptoms of clinical and subclinical thyroid and adrenal conditions. Discussion includes availability and validity of testing, clinical signs and symptoms, and specific nutrient and dietary recommendations to assist with the development of comprehensive treatment protocols.
Learn about the interplay between exercise, health and performance. Hear from health experts who specialise in exercise medicine and gain some evidence-based strategies to aid your patients in maintaining health while increasing performance.
