An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure;
Chronic Disease and the Gut Microbiome

Presented by Julia Malkowski, ND, DC | Oct. 5, 2022 at 9:30 AM and 12 PM Pacific

The total cost of all chronic disease in the US is almost one-fifth the entire economy. Nearly half of all Americans will suffer chronic disease in their lifetime. This talk will discuss the intricate relationship between chronic disease and the gut microbiome. Prevalent chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer's and depression will be discussed in relation to the gut microbiome. Appropriate evaluation of the GI microbiome will be discussed alongside clinical considerations. Attendees will take away an understanding of the pathogenesis of chronic disease and the gut microbiome.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the significant role chronic disease plays on an individual and national level
  2. Understand the role of the gut microbiome in the pathogenesis of chronic disease
  3. Understand appropriate testing as related to chronic disease
  4. Knowledge of appropriate gut microbiome evaluation and clinical considerations

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review the rise of sugar consumption globally and associated health burdens
  2. Compare the biochemical makeup of sucrose, fructose and glucose
  3. Examine the role that excess dietary sugar plays in glucose metabolism, insulin resistance, adrenal health and obesity
  4. Consider sugar's role in addiction
  5. Define metabolic syndrome including its impact on sex hormones and the HPA Axis
  6. Discuss laboratory testing to identify insulin resistance and hormone imbalance
  7. Compare and contrast diets including intermittent fasting, time restricted eating and caloric restriction on blood sugar, fat loss and health

How to use the Hormone and Urinary Metabolites Assessment Profile (HuMap) test to Optimize Detoxification and Breast Health

Presented by Laura Neville, ND, DC | Nov. 2, 2022 at 9:30 AM and 12 PM Pacific

Exposure to estrogen is a known potential risk factor in breast pathology. While saliva hormone levels elucidate tissue exposure, this may only be a part of the breast health story. The rest of the story involves the metabolism and excretion of hormones. This lecture will touch on estrogen metabolism and the estrobolome, highlighting urinary hormone and metabolite markers of breast health and detoxification. The clinician will gain an understanding of phase 1, 2, and 3 metabolism, leaving with clinical pearls regarding lifestyle, nutrition, order of treatment, and nutraceutical interventions to assist in optimal breast health.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Review breast health risk factors, including the role of estrogen and estrogen metabolism
  2. Pinpoint key enzymes known to play a role in breast cancer
  3. Review markers of oxidative damage
  4. View examples of estrone and estradiol conjugation via COMT activity
  5. Learn how to modulate enzyme function with natural therapies to improve estrogen metabolism
  6. Learn how to identify the potential for reactive intermediates and ways to dampen oxidation
