    The Marvelous Dozen

    Original
    Date: August 17th, 2013
    Presenter: Sussana Czeranko, ND

    In 1902 Naturopathic doctors embarked on a path of building a profession which could provide an alternative for those seeking health care to the dominant allopathic monopoly of that time. Right from very beginning, Naturopathy sprang from a philosophical platform which proclaimed Nature and Nature alone as the genuine and lasting healer. Benedict Lust was a giant among numerous visionaries, possessing unrelenting determination to bring Nature Cure and Naturopathy into the 20th century. Many shared that vision and like him, were dedicated to a movement that would challenge the assault on medical freedom which plagued not only naturopathic professionals, but also sanopractice, chiropractic, eclecticism, herbalism and more. Guided by twelve core statements established by Dr Ludwig Staden, these pioneers embedded our medicine with principles as necessary to understand and support today as a century ago.

  • Shiftwork: The Fundamentals of Neurolinguistic Programming

    Original Date: August 17th, 2013
    Presenter: Kathleen Milligan

    NLP (neurolinguistic programming) is the art of making change by choice. Shiftwork will show you how making small changes in your presuppositions and communication can make it more likely that your patients will follow through with change.

    This brief introduction will focus on three fundamentals of NLP: 

    • A state of relaxed focus allows people to visualize the change they want to make. 
    • Everyone has within them what they need to be more satisfied with their choices and behaviours.
    • The easiest place to plant seeds for change is in the physical and sensory representations people make of their futures.

    You'll learn that you are already using these fundamentals in your best patient interactions. Becoming intentional about using them more often will allow you to support better changes more of the time.

  • Pain Management:  Radical New Science Revolutionizes Trans-dermal Healing

    Original
    Date: August 17th, 2013
    Presenter: Joseph Gabriele, PhD

    Please join us as leading Canadian scientist Dr. Joseph Gabriele, Molecular Pharmacologist and Assistant Professor at McMaster University, leads us through the ground-breaking technology of trans-dermal healing. This evidence-based trans-dermal delivery system enters deep into the skin’s dermis to produce strong pharmacological effects. Scientifically proven to be more effective than any other OTC pain reliever both natural and pharmaceutical, this revolutionary transport system represents a new paradigm of trans-dermal healing. It encourages both pharma-based and organic remedies to be transported with precision effect to ailing sites in deep muscular tissues and joints, thereby avoiding drug conflicts and side-effects.

     

    Statistics from the Canadian Pain Coalition indicate that 13 to 30% of Canadians suffer from chronic pain, which can impact all areas of a person’s life, mind, body and spirit. This agonizing statistic is on the rise, with the age of affliction getting younger and younger. We are a nation in overwhelming pain and as a result have far too many people over medicating, unable to tolerate ingestible remedies, and many more who are suffering secondary health conditions as a result of attempting to manage their pain. Finally, there is a scientifically developed, natural adjunctive therapy clinically proven to yield superior results.

    Date: August 17th, 2013
    Presenter: Niki Bilton, MAc (UK), MBAcC (UK), LAc

     

    Niki H. Bilton will discuss the philosophy behind and the clinical practice of a systems-based convergence approach, where disease is considered a process with many components, and treatment strategies are aligned to support, strengthen and enable patients to reclaim their own innate balance and regulatory pathways. She will reference her experience at Anatara Medicine, a wellness and disease prevention clinic offering a convergence of allopathic medical science and the most effective Eastern and Western complementary medicine practices available today. She will present case studies of patients dealing with difficult, chronic diseases where consulting practitioners discussed the best convergent approach to optimize metabolic, circulatory, hormone and immune regulation, for example, thereby providing the highest quality of life possible. Niki will also address which modalities seem to consistently work well with each other, including the synergy of naturopathy and acupuncture.

    Fertile Minds

    Original Date: August 18th, 2013
    Presenter: Kathleen Milligan

    Kathleen Milligan works with women who have been diagnosed with “unexplained infertility.” Once conception is addressed as a physiological process that also has an emotional/spiritual/psychological component to it, conception rates increase.

    Women begin their journey towards creating a baby with hope, but as their continued attempts to conceive fail, the belief that their wish will be fulfilled is eroded. Their process has only half of the hope equation in place. We go back to that original wish and we re-start the journey. Kathleen helps women build hope so that women can build a baby— perhaps one of the biggest things you can hope for—the creation of another human being.
