Beverly Yates, NDFree Live Webinar:  Understanding the Fire Within - Inflammation and Recovery from Heart Disease 

Presented byBeverly Yates, ND
Date: May 13, 2014
Time: 4:00pm EDT 

This presentation discusses inflammation as a silent fire that underlies the development of heart disease and cardiovascular disorders.  Oxidative damage, compromised aging processes, and negative lifestyle factors can cause harm to the heart and cardiovascular system. Since heart disease is the most common disease process that leads to death, it's important to know how to effectively treat it and how to prevent it, if possible, in those patients most at risk.  Attendees will learn about the therapeutic application of specific botanicals in supporting a healthy response to inflammation that underlies these disease processes.  A key therapeutic goal includes improving the ability of the heart and cardiovascular system to remain robust and flexible in response to life's challenges. Plants to be discussed include: Turmeric, Hawthorn, Chinese Salvia, Coleus forskohlii, and Resveratrol.

Lise AlschulerFree On-Demand Webinar: Sleep well, sleep safely: An exploration of the importance of sleep and botanical alternatives to conventional hypnotics

Presented by: Lise Alschuler, N.D., F.A.B.N.O

Recorded: December 3, 2013

It is estimated that up to 10% of all US adults take conventional sleep medication for poor sleep.  Rather alarmingly, recent data indicates that conventional hypnotics are associated with increased risk of mortality. At the same time, insufficient sleep alters gene expression, circadian rhythms, and immunity leading to increased risk of obesity, cardiovascular disease, cancer and dementia. What is an insomniac to do?? This webinar will offer a therapeutic strategy of sleep support that relies upon the restoration of circadian rhythmicity in concert with sedative neurological tonification. The webinar will highlight several key botanicals that will ultimately provide safe and effective sleep support including Scutellaria lateriflora (American Skullcap), Eschscholzia californica (California Poppy), Piper methysticum (Kava Kava), Passiflora incarnata (Passionflower), Valeriana officinalis (Valerian), Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha), Magnolia officinalis (Magnolia).

Tori Hudson, NDFree On-Demand Webinar: Resilience: The Role of Herbal Medicines for Anxiety and Depression 

Presented by: Tori Hudson, ND

Recorded: October 8, 2013

Mental health conditions are a significant public health issue. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, depression is the leading cause of disability in the United States for ages 15-44 and is the most common psychiatric condition worldwide followed closely by generalized anxiety disorder. Since the 1990s, the prescribing of antidepressant drugs has steadily increased in the United States, even though the clinical efficacy of these drugs has been called into question for more than a decade. The benefits of these medications have been over-stated, leading clinicians to prescribe them for many patients who are unlikely to benefit from their use. An integrative approach, one that addresses all aspects of lifestyle, is far more likely to offer real solutions for those struggling with depression and/or anxiety. This session will explore the role of botanical medicine as one aspect of this integrative approach.

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
1.     Describe the evidence of safety and benefit of botanical medicines commonly used in the management of depressive disorders.
2.     Describe the evidence of safety and benefit of botanical medicines commonly used in the management of anxiety disorders.
3.     Discuss the differential use of nervines and adaptogens in patient care.

James Greenblatt, MDFree On-Demand Webinar: Probiotics for the mind: A crossroads of the microbiome and mental health* 

Presented by: James Greenblatt, MD

Recorded: October 3, 2013

The gut-brain connection is a familiar concept that underscores the mind’s capacity to affect digestive health. However, new research shows that this relationship also functions in reverse.  Specifically, microbial residents of the intestinal tract can influence emotional state, mood, cognition, stress responses and social behavior. Accordingly, as single agents or as adjuncts to traditional approaches, probiotics have many emerging applications in clinical psychiatry. In this webinar, Dr. James Greenblatt will provide an overview of how digestive health contributes to mental health, with a focus on research supporting the use of probiotics in integrative psychiatry.  A review of indications, proper use, dosage and assessment methods will translate the latest discoveries into simple clinical approaches.*

Dr. Mark J. PasulaFree On-Demand Webinar: Understanding Diet Induced Inflammation 

Presented by: Dr. Mark J. Pasula  

Recorded: October 1, 2013 

Food sensitivities are a primary source of inflammation and symptoms in IBS, migraine, fibromyalgia, arthritis, ADD/ADHD, autism, obesity, metabolic syndrome and other chronic inflammatory conditions.  Managed properly, it can be one of the most powerful areas of therapy.  Yet despite awareness being at an all-time high and routine ordering of various blood tests to help identify inflammatory foodstuffs, there is still significant confusion related to how food and food-chemicals actually cause inflammation, and which blood tests have the greatest impact in identifying hidden inflammatory foods.

If you are a practitioner looking to better understand the underlying immunology/physiology of food-induced inflammation, this presentation is for you.  This enlightening webinar will provide a clear understanding of the different types of diet-induced inflammation, reconcile their underlying physiology with their corresponding clinical characteristics, and provide attendees with a better understanding of how to identify hidden inflammatory foods.

Presented by: Taylor Walsh, Principal at Integrative Health & Wellness Strategies

This three-part series plus Q&A session is designed to give you the tools and information you need to implement an effective social media strategy for your practice.

Session #1: The Case for Social Media
This presentation will review the tumultuous health and digital landscapes on which you’ll create or extend your social presence.

Session #2: Making Local Word of Mouth Social
Your practice is probably inherently very social in the first place: relying on word of mouth referrals, perhaps providing group sessions.  A “social” basis for integrative service in your community already exists.  How can you extend awareness of its benefits and availability by using the powers of engagement that are at the heart of social media? 

Session #3: An Integrative and Social Practice
The last session will dive deeper into the social ecosystem and how to take advantage of the potential favorable trends in whole-person health and the focus on wellness services delivered outside the clinic.

Presented by: Donald R. Yance Jr., MH, CN, RH (AHG), SFO, Clinical Master Herbalist, Certified Nutritionist

Recorded: April 4, 2012

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) are currently marketed as risk-free, safe practices, and natural treatments for men and women suffering from the effects of hormone depletion. Yet, conflicting opinions exist that HRT and BHRT are as safe and effective as advertised.  Rather than ‘replace’ hormones, this discussion emphasizes botanical medicine as a cornerstone treatment for optimization of endogenous hormone production/regulation, together with medicinal-grade nutritional supplements, as a cooperative effect on the endocrine and hormonal systems.

Presented by: Hector Lopez, MD, MS, FAAPMR

Recorded: February 21, 2012 

Moderated by: Raechel Bedayan, Education Coordinator, Nordic Naturals

Nutritional immunology is an emerging science with great potential to impact human health.  The immune system is uniquely capable of not only orchestrating an inflammatory response to injury or infection, but also receiving biochemical and physiologic signals from every other organ system in the body.  More recent scientific evidence suggests that Omega-3 fatty acids found in concentrated fish oil may influence the function of both the innate and adaptive arms of the immune system. 

Join Dr. Lopez as he reviews the critical elements of fish oil as it relates to immunomodulation, with an emphasis on clinical applications in various medical disciplines.

Angela HywoodFree On-Demand Webinar: New Insights into Supporting Healthy Thyroid Function with Integrative Medicine 

Presented by:
Angela Hywood, ND, BSc (complementary medicine/naturopathy), Dip Bot Med, Dip Hom, Dip CN, Dip NFM MANTA, MNHAA, on behalf of Standard Process 

Recorded: Thursday November 17, 2011 

Maintaining healthy thyroid function is said to be the most important of all endocrine challenges, especially for women older than 50. Thyroid issues, however, can affect children, young women, and men of any age. Common first signs, such as fatigue, weight gain and mood change, are often overlooked.  Tests can help identify thyroid challenges at an early stage so they can be evaluated sooner rather than later. Medical endocrinology traditionally takes a reductionist approach, examining hormones in isolation rather than looking at the system as a whole. Australian research sheds light on the complexity of nutritional requirements needed for activation and utilization of thyroid hormone.

In this one-hour webinar, naturopathic doctor Angela Hywood will present:
•  Practical clinical approaches using herbs, nutrition, and lifestyle medicine to support thyroid health and deliver clinical results
•  Herbal medicine and clinical nutrition as alternative or complementary approaches to achieving healthy thyroid function
•  Information to advance your thyroid-evaluation skills
