The Invisible Is Now Measurable: New Technology That Detects and Analyzes Inflammation, Injury, and Infection

Dr. Paula Strait

Objectives:

  1. Learn how tissue stress influences dysfunction in the body
  2. Learn how assessing biophysical stress assists diagnosis and treatment
  3. Identify the first direct and objective method of detection and measurement of biophysical stress


Synopsis:
Our body manages its tissue functions through vast coordination at the molecular level. Mobility responses are directed by an intense and widespread sensor system that manages flexibility and adaptability. When too much force (accident) or irritation (infection attack) approaches, these sensors trigger tissue survival reactions for fight or flight instead. As the impact is approaching the body, sensors compute and commit protective action within milliseconds.  In our body, once these defenses are deployed they usually cannot reverse, or “wear off.” We may think we’ve recovered from an accident, but invisibly a chronic and powerfully damaging condition of constant irritation and resistance continues. You could consider an “itis” of tissues: a “Stopitis” due to Sensors for Trauma on Overload, Persisting Tissue Inflammation and Stiffness. More formally we call it Obsistitis, literally: “I resist to survive”.   This condition will not yield to manipulation therapies, drugs or other efforts since the tissue is still being messaged to resist. The toobusy trapping reactions obscure the accurate identification of the true sites of obsistitis. Successful recovery requires relieving the stuck sensor system.
 


Role of External CounterPulsation in Cardiology

Dr. S. Ramasamy

Objectives:

  1. External CounterPulsation Mechanism of Action
  2. ECP role in Angina & Heart Failure
  3. Other indications and future role of ECP as vascular rejuvenation therapy. 


Synopsis:
Treatment of angina and heart failure poses a great challenge to cardiologists and general physicians as they utilize more resources but fails to achieve complete control of symptoms and repeat hospitalizations. External CounterPulsation (ECP) is a non-Invasive, pneumatic assisted, angiogenesis promoting, mechanical treatment, which has shown promising results in patients with symptomatic coronary artery disease. In this presentation we will discuss how a Non-Invasive strategy using ECP treatment can be used to achieve better outcomes in Coronary artery disease patients. We will also discuss in detail the mechanism of action, current guideline recommendation of ECP treatment and other utilization of ECP treatment and its future role as cardio vascular rejuvenation therapy.


Pathophysiology of Memory Disorders and Nutritional Treatments

Dr. Steve Haltiwanger

Objectives:

  1. To identify common causes of memory disorders and how the pathological process damages cellular components
  2. To understand how chemicals and some drugs like aspartame, alcohol, Sedative hypnotics, statins and other drugs can cause memory loss in all age groups
  3. To understand basic brain chemistry and neural pathways involved in memory formation
  4. To understand basic pathophysiological mechanisms involved in causing memory impairment as related to nutrient utilization
  5. Participants will gain an understanding of which nutrients can be unbalanced in memory disorders


Synopsis:
This talk will be about memory disorders as they relate to nutritional abnormalities. From a nutritional point of view a clinician can intervene at the level of the cell membrane, DNA/RNA in the nucleus, the protein machinery in the cytoplasm, the protein and enzymes in the cytoplasm and cell membranes, and the mitochondria. The goals of treatment are to identify, prevent and correct cellular abnormalities such as cellular energy depletion, oxidative stress, increased protein degradation, membrane degradation and DNA damage. This lecture will address pathophysiological dysfunction of the CNS and guidance will be given based on scientific studies of how a clinician can use laboratory testing to determine abnormalities related to memory disorders and what substances have been shown in the literature to be effective in improving memory.


Bring Life Science to the Clinic

Dr. Haixing Chen

Objectives:
1. Life Science (Genetic Diagnosis & Gene Therapy)
2. Clinic Applications
3. Bring Life Science to the Clinic
 

Synopsis:
Genetic diagnosis and gene therapy are the top tools for disease diagnosis and therapy now and/or in the near future. Creating the technologies and bringing the technologies to the clinic usage involves collaborations between many fields, such as scientists, physicians & medical staffs and commercial institutes and must comply with regulations over clinics. Medical staffs have many advantages to identify the technology and to bring the technology to the clinic.  These will be discussed in the presentation.


The Bioenergetic Matrix and Matrix Repatterning

Dr. Allen Berger

Objectives:

  1. An understanding of the body’s tensegrity architecture
  2. Awareness of research related to the body’s electromagnetic nature
  3. A demonstration of how to change the structure and bioenergetics with innovative manual therapy


Synopsis:
There is more to anatomy and physiology than meets the eye or is taught in school. The liquid crystalline matrix structure of the body generates an electromagnetic field that governs function as along with the nervous system and the body chemistry. Matrix Repatterning is an innovative manual therapy that fixes the effects of injury on electromagnetic dysfunction and leads to rapid, permanent healing.
 


Integrative Evaluation & Treatment of GI Diseases

Dr. Steve Hines

Objectives:

  1. How to evaluate a patient with GI symptoms
  2. Innovative treatment strategies, some natural, some pharmaceutical
  3. Dietary approaches to Gi health and restoration 


Synopsis:
We will discuss the normal physiology of the GI tract, immune system, peristalsis and disrupters thereof. The sphincters, the microbiome, how the GI tract can affect the neurological system, endocrine system, the liver, pain syndromes, vision and hypertension. Natural methods as well as creative use of select pharmaceuticals to normalize the GI tract function. 


Hormones in a Chronically Ill Patient

Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy

Objectives:

  1. How to evaluate hormone imbalances as a contributor to disease.
  2. What treatments does Dr. Connealy use to balance patient’s hormones.
  3. Does the treatment vary based upon a patient’s age, diagnosis and/or other factors.


Synopsis:
The purpose of this presentation is to educate medical professionals about the importance of hormone balance in chronically ill patients. Many factors contribute to the dis-ease of the body and hormone imbalances can play a major role in those factors. Hormones, which are produced in the thyroid, adrenal, or pituitary glands, serve as the chemical messengers in the body. The role of these messengers is to bridge a form of communication between various organs in the body and to serve as a catalyst for many internal metabolic cascade reactions. Many endocrine disorders are the result of hormone imbalance. Diseases such as hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, osteoporosis, thyroid cancer, and diabetes are the result of such imbalances. As medical advancements have progressed throughout the years, there has been a peaking interest in treatments such bio-identical hormone therapy. Bio-identical hormone therapy is a form of treatment that uses naturally synthesized hormones to treat patients with hormone imbalances. Join Dr. Connealy as she discusses the importance of addressing hormone imbalances in chronically ill patients.


CardioRheumatology

Dr. Jim Roberts

Objectives:
To understand:

  1. That atherosclerosis and rheumatic conditions are driven by chronic and acute oxidative and inflammatory stress.
  2. The mechanisms through which allopurinol, colchicine, and chondroitin sulfate relieve oxidative and inflammatory stress.
  3. The clinical studies documenting their benefits in cardiovascular conditions.


Synopsis:
Joint disease and atherosclerosis occur as the consequence of chronic oxidative and inflammatory stress; clinical exacerbations occur in relation to uncontained spikes in oxidative and inflammatory mediators.  Therapies used to treat rheumatic disease may thus be useful in the prevention and stabilization of atherosclerotic conditions.  This presentation will discuss the utility and mechanism of action of allopurinol, colchicine, and chondroitin sulfate in the treatment of cardiovascular and renal disease states.


Discovering the Underlying Issues in a Case of Brain Tumor

Dr. Michelle Schrader

Objectives:

  1. Introduce a detailed case walking through a brain tumor
  2. Review Recall Healing Principles
  3. Discuss all tools and resources utilized in helping to release a brain tumor.


Synopsis:
Recall Healing is rooted in the premise that all traumatic experiences are neurologically connected and expressed in the physiology.  It is not always easy to uncover the emotional underpinnings of an illness.  During this presentation, participants will examine the step-by-step process and the challenges in walking through a brain tumor.   The details presented will offer insights related to a diagnosis and how to use science and art to resolve the issue.  Current research is beginning to understand the underlying emotional components of specific cancers.  This presentation will further the awareness of emotional underpinnings and the art in discovering the life experiences, the project purpose, and the generational patterns.
