Title: The Role of Nitric Oxide in Cellular Aging: Telomeres, Mitochondria & Stem Cells
1. Clear understanding of nitric oxide function in the body and its relationship to telomerase
enzyme/telomere length, mitochondrial production of ATP and recruitment of stem cells
2. Ability to identify indications of insufficiency relative to various facets of aging
3. Comprehension of therapeutic techniques for restoration of nitric oxide homeostasis in
the aging population
Nitric oxide (NO) is one of the most important molecules produced within our body. Loss of NO production within the human body is associated with the onset and progression of a number of chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease. Ageing is a complex process involving defects in various cellular components. The latest evidence suggests a unifying mechanism for cellular aging that is relevant to the development of common age-related diseases. There is now emerging evidence that NO controls and regulates many processes that affect and control how we age as well as we well we perform with age. Three important examples are 1) telomere protection, 2) mitochondrial ATP production and 3) recruitment of stem cells. All three of these processes are dependent on healthy nitric oxide production. Further, evidence shows that their natural age-related degeneration can actually be slowed or reversed with NO restoration.  Recognizing NO deficiency early in the aging population and then implementing therapeutic interventions and lifestyle modification known to improve NO production will have a major impact on public health and the aging process. These concepts will be reviewed and discussed.

Title: Regeneration By Stopping the Degeneration

1. Review the causes of tissue/organ degeneration
2. Understand inter-relationships between the various causes of degeneration
3. Learn how to remove the causes of degeneration so that regeneration can occur

Many factors have been shown to cause degeneration of the body and aging.  So the most important steps to take to accomplish regeneration of the body are to remove the degenerative causes. Stem cells are produced every day in our bone marrow.  When those stem cells migrate from the bone marrow into a degenerated tissue, they can fail to form new healthy cells there if certain conditions are present in those tissues.  Hypoxia, acid-alkaline imbalance, physical toxins, microbial infections, nutrient depletion, hormonal & neurotransmitter imbalances and excessive electromagnetic fields are some of those degenerative conditions that must be resolved or at least improved before the stem cells can mature and form new healthy tissues. Dr. Cowden will discuss steps that can be taken to regenerate degenerated tissues and organs and give some case examples to illustrate these steps.
Title:  Regeneration through Life Transformation
1. To bring to awareness the magnitude and impact of hidden emotional wounds, unresolved conflicts, associated decisions and beliefs upon our bodies and disease in particular.
2. To demonstrate how helping someone become aware of their hidden emotional wounds, unresolved conflicts, decisions and beliefs can facilitate healing in unexpected and often miraculous ways.
3. To learn how to effectively use the most basic foundational principles of Recall Healing in helping ourselves and our loved ones to heal more readily and rapidly from disease without drugs and with better results.
Most people in our society are on the slippery slope of disease and dysfunction. Can a damaged body be revitalized and even be rebuilt? What does it take to get systems and organs that have lost function to start working again? Amazing results are being achieved with some great new and some older strategies. Some of those are common sense strategies like eating right, exercising, taking the right nutrients, adding health promoting microbes to the gut and balancing hormones. However there are other EXCITING new treatment strategies that make regeneration and reactivation of broken systems and dysfunctional organs easier to achieve than ever before. There are also wonderful strategies and approaches that literally go to the heart of why we get ill and why organs and systems break down and how we can facilitate healing by literally becoming catalysts for life transformation.

Title: The Free Radical Theory of Aging is Dead – Live Longer with Redox Signaling Science
1. Oxidative stress has now been shown to actually promote longevity and metabolic health.
2. Reductants AND Oxidants (RED-OX) in equal quantities, are required for maximal intracellular production of  the major antioxidants SOD, catalase and glutathione.
3. Redox signaling and biological redox messengers are absolutely fundamental to healing processes and life itself.
The free radical theory of aging posits that aging is caused by accumulation of damage inflicted by reactive oxygen species (ROS). Although this concept has been very useful in defining the contribution of oxidative damage to the aging process, an increasing number of studies contradict it.  Recently we have learned that oxidative stress and free radical production is essential in healing and metabolic health.  Professor Randolph Howes, MD, Ph.D. gave a lecture titled, Oxidation and Mitochondrial Function: Antioxidant Snake Oil, at ACAM (American College of Advanced Medicine) in 2013. He discussed the danger of over consuming anti-oxidant supplements, especially fat soluble anti-oxidants from beta carotene and vitamin E. He is a researcher, prolific writer, and wrote many books including, Danger of Excessive Antioxidants in Cancer Patients and U.T.O.P.I.A. (Unified Theory of Oxygen Participation in Aerobiosis). We must have a balance between anti-oxidants and oxidants in order to achieve optimal health.
Title: Practical Strategies for Nutrition and Lifestyle Intervention in Brain Health and Beyond
1. Understand the influence of environment, lifestyle and personal meal choices on brain health resulting in inflammation and functional decline.
- Specifically be able to offer strategies for lifestyle and dietary changes to optimize health.  
2. Understand how blood sugar affects  brain health and functional decline.
- Specifically be able to distinguish between low carbohydrate and ketogenic diets as a treatment option
3.  Understand how gut permeability, food sensitivities and dysbiosis affects brain health.  
- Specifically identify and discuss when to use elimination diets, Gluten Free, FODMAP diet, anti-candida diets.
- Using probiotics and fermented foods for neurological disorders.
This discussion will cover the “how to” develop a nutritional plan for brain health.   With a clear gut / brain connection, it is important to develop a personalized nutrition plan for each patient.  Her step by step approach will review low carbohydrate, ketogenic, elimination, gluten free  and other diets are powerful tools in a food as medicine approach in  the patient’s personalized treatment plan.  She will also demonstrate how blood sugar and insulin levels have negative effects on brain health and the strategies to lowering hemoglobin A1C.   Other areas of discussion will include microbiota gut- brain connection and the use of fermented foods, probiotics and fiber to correct imbalances in the gut- brain axis.  She weaves the importance of lifestyle and stress reduction in correcting imbalances that, in many cases exhibit as neurological and brain disorders.  The discussion includes strategies to address and  overcome common barriers for success such as dining out, traveling, inability or unwillingness to cook.  “The key to your patient’s success is on the plate!”
Title: Restoring Lost Vision
1. Learn what eye conditions respond to alternative treatments.
2. Understand what modalities are most successful for restoring lost vision.
3. Learn the basics of microcurrent and why this therapy is the most successful for reversing ocular disease.
Purpose is to Demonstrate the effectiveness of alternative modalities in improving vision in chronic eye conditions even when administered over a short term period.  These 11 ocular conditions are ordinarily considered incurable by any method except surgery – and even with surgery the outcomes can be variable and/or transient. Seventy-eight percent of the patients had either Age-Related Macular Degeneration or Glaucoma which together are the leading cause of blindness in persons over 65 years of age. Alternative treatments used were: IV Nutrition, Oxidative  therapy, Microcurrent Stimulation, and Syntonic Light therapy. Each participant received each modality in the protocol. Following the administration of the protocol, significant improvement in Acuity, Contrast, and Visual Field resulted in the majority of participants. None of the interventions was toxic or painful, and all likely contributed to improved overall health status of the participants. Long term follow-up studies are now in process.
Title: How to Live to a Healthy & Vibrant 99
1. Healthy Lifestyles to Improve Aging
2. Exercise to Improve Aging
3. Nutrition, a Key to Healthy Aging
The first step to living a healthy and vibrant life is to realize the toxic environment that we live in. The Environmental Work Group has done study showing the average American adult has over 300 toxins and chemicals in his blood and worse yet the average newborn has been shown to have 278 toxins and chemicals. Healthy lifestyles require an active detoxification program. We will show how to develop effective detoxification programs starting with our children and maintained throughout our lives. It begins with a review of how we became such a polluted nation and ways of reversing it daily. We will look at creative ways to exercise more effectively and in less time. Lastly we’ll considered the most effective diets we presently have and review nutrition supplements to develop the most effective regenerative therapies to help us to live to that vibrant and healthy 99.
Title: Metal Sensitivity and Organ Extract  Therapy
1. Relationship between heavy metals and organ extract therapy
2. Efficacy of  orthomolecular therapy and organ extract therapy
3. Satisfaction rate of detox in patient with metal-sensitivity associated diseases by a treatment protocol of detox, organ extract and orthomolecular therapy.
Throughout the last century, advances in industrialization, manufacturing, and technology have resulted in ever-increasing amounts of toxic elements being released into the environment.  Even at low levels, toxic elements have the destructive capability to damage nerves and tissue. This increasing toxic burden can trigger a variety of physical and cognitive disorders. Everyone is potentially exposed to toxic elements. To trait the illnesses can be use orthomolecular treatment, organ extract therapy and detox.  Organ extract therapy summarizes the selection and combination of implant tissues for the most important health disturbances, symptoms, syndromes and diseases. Since tissue selection primarily depends on the personal situation of the patient and the existing range of symptoms,. The use of cell therapy alternatives should therefore be preceded by a critical assessment of the individual clinical picture and based on in-depth knowledge of the regulatory pathways in the organism.  Foetal tissues are not only better tolerated by the host but also have a better therapeutic effect.
Title: Metabolic Cardiology A New Treatment in the Therapy of Cardiovascular Disease
1.  Learn how the new triad of bioenergetic energy in cardiac health, Coenzyme Q10, L-carnitine and D-ribose, can help prevent and overcome heart disease, and the important contribution these energy-supplying nutrients make in people’s lives.
2.  Describe why ATP supporting nutrients can improve symptoms of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.
3.  Define the complex role of energy and the heart.
The importance of supporting energy production in heart cells and the preservation of the mitochondria in these cells will be the focus of a new frontier in cardiovascular prevention, treatment and management.  Since most physicians are not trained to look at heart disease in terms of cellular biochemistry, the challenge in any metabolic cardiology discussion is taking the conversation from the "bench to the bedside".  An understanding of the vital role that ATP plays in the heart is critical for any physician or clinician considering therapeutic options that support ATP production and turnover in jeopardized cardiac muscle cells.  Metabolic therapies that help cardiomyocytes meet their absolute need for ATP fulfill a major clinical challenge of preserving pulsatile cardiac function while maintaining cell and tissue viability.  D-Ribose, L-carnitine, and coenzyme Q10 work in synergy to help the ischemic or hypoxic heart preserve its energy charge.  This lecture introduces how ATP, diastolic heart function and metabolic supports help maintain cardiac energy by preserving ATP substrates which will not only improve quality of life but in many cases longevity as well.  Indeed Metabolic Cardiology offers new hope for anyone with moderate to advanced cardiovascular disease.
Title: The Causes and Successful Treatments of ALS
1. Stress in the intestinal tract is a major source of inflammation in ALS.  Discuss the factors that can cause this inflammation and give three treatments that can be used to restore GI tract homeostasis.
2. Another source of inflammation in ALS is in the spinal cord.  Discuss how monocytes are involved in this inflammation and give three treatments that help reduce the inflammation.
3. The spinal cord is also affected by mutated or misfolded SOD.  Discuss how the misfolded SOD1 are produced in the monocytes and transported into the spinal cord.  Give three treatments that can help reduce this destruction.
Over the past few years peri-spinal pain, impingement and avulsion of the spinal nerves (especially C4-5,C5-6) have been demonstrated to produce oxidative stress.  In addition, these patients' intestines exhibit chronic inflammation secondary to gram negative bacteria, yeast and heavy metals.  The chronic oxidative stresses in the gut wall prevent the formation of serotonin, which aggravates the neurons.  Monocytes in the gut and spinal nerves are subjected to repetitive oxidative stress that leads to the misfolding of the monocytes'  SOD.  When there is a spinal cord injury, the oxidized monocytes and stem cells settle into the injured spinal nerve and carry these poisons and misfolded SOD into the cord where the microglia, astroglia and then motor neurons are damaged and finally die.  My ALS program of removing oxidative stress, preventing the monocytes from entering into the cord, and the use of stem cells for neural repair has produced significant benefits in about thirty patients.
Title: Evidence for Reprogramming the Subconscious Mind with EDS-guided Bach Flowers
1.  To understand the subconscious mind’s influence on conscious behavior and immune and neurological response.
2.  To learn some of the tools for evaluating and treating emotional health and physical well being.
3.  To understand how transgenerational influences, toxic emotional drags and blocked frequencies effect our body’s  ability to heal and regenerate.
Integrative practitioners have the daily challenge of balancing body, mind, and spiritual aspects of human health.  Emotions that are blocked or suppressed, along with transgenerational influences can have an affect on emotional well being, as well as the bodies’ ability to heal and regenerate.   Subconscious mental programming has a strong influence on our conscious behavioral response and physical health.  Bio communication, EDS technologies, and guided Bach Flower therapy can facilitate identification of the subconscious, blocked issue and identify needed therapies.   The conscious awareness of the “real issue” facilitates choice and diminishes the negative psychoneuroimmunological   effect on the body.  Dr. Rose will discuss a simple time efficient approach to remove the emotional drags that blocks healing and regeneration.  She will demonstrate methods to identify stressors burdening the body and the use of affirmation statements, Bach Flower, Voice Stress Analysis, frequency and laser therapies to balance the body, mind, and spirit.

Title: Scientific Support for the Use of Herbs in Medicine
1. To support and reinforce the rationale for the need to first release toxins and poisons from the body before regeneration can take place, the need for ongoing detoxification support during treatment, and the importance of strengthening the body’s own detoxification pathways and processes. 
2. To share the science that shows the validity of plant-based medicine with its multi-factorial properties for assisting in detoxification, immune building and balance, decreasing inflammation, reducing microbial/pathogen load, strengthening function of organs and glands, and body/mind regeneration.   Specific published studies will be included that are relevant to the treatment of many types of chronic  illness and promotion of regeneration on all levels.
3. To educate practitioners in the optimal use and application of herbal combinations which are designed to detoxify and regenerate the body, and to offer guidance in integrating the use of herbs into existing practice and protocols.
Published studies reveal the powerful changes medicinal herbs can facilitate in the human body. Herbs possess the ability to detoxify, modulate immunity, and reduce pathogens. Due to the fact that herbs are foods and contain nutrition, they are an outstanding source for promoting regeneration in the body. Since herbs can facilitate change, it is necessary to explore their actions and contraindications as the studies presented will show. We will discuss the benefits and advantages to using plant-based medicine in a protocol as stand alone treatment or incorporated when prescription medications are necessary. We will explore suggested use of synergistic herbs to assist detoxification before regeneration can take place.
Title: Stable Water Clusters and Applications in Regenerative Therapies
1.  Present the basic science of stable water clusters
2.  Share peer reviewed scientific studies that demonstrate positive ramifications for regenerative therapies
3.  Share case studies from clinical applications of stable water clusters
Stable water clusters, a newly discovered 4th stage of water, has been found to stimulate cytokine activity, and induce effects at the genetic level by regulating the transcription of selective genes in the laboratory. We will share the latest scientific research on the biological properties of water, and how practitioners are utilizing double helix shaped stable water clusters in the clinic. Infrared imaging suggests how these quantum coherent nanoclusters are influencing the water dynamics in the body, and may be material basis for the “meridians”. Peer reviewed studies demonstrate the efficacy of SWCs on variety of regenerative therapies from wound healing and stem cells implantation, to increasing behavioral outcomes in ASD clients.
