About this Presentation
“Each patient carries his own doctor inside him. They come knowing this truth. We are at our best when they give the doctor who resides within each patient a chance to go to work” – Albert Schweitzer MD.
Patients and clients increasingly present with numerous adverse events occurring simultaneously and yet often have no real insight into how the systemic effect of each of these is greater than the individual complaint. This presents the practitioner with a problem, where to intervene, how much to intervene and for how long? for if drawn to the concept that each individual issue needs to be treated in isolation the risk of poly-pharmacy, or poly-supplementation develops with subsequent unanticipated complications.
Practitioners face this dilemma every day and often feel unsure how best to progress with least risk and maximum outcome. With over 45 years combined clinical experience the presenters have faced the same issues and have evolved a strategic approach greatly shaped by the functional medicine model to provide a way of determining a point of intervention that uses three key components simultaneously.
The ‘Clinical Trinity’ model of clinical care reflects these core components needed to achieve optimal health outcomes. Our 3 hour presentation will inform, educate and enthral by weaving the presentation around 3 complex but common cases, to demonstrate and explain the key elements of the Clinical Trinity:
- Clinical Experience; as illustrated through case history presentation,
- Clinical Interaction; by understanding how to liberate the meaning response in people&
- Mechanisms and Science; by grasping how and why different molecular events conspire to increase risk and symptoms and how to use them to evolve an effective strategy and effective management for optimal outcomes.
As experienced researchers and clinicians the speakers will assist you in learning how to utilise this highly successful model, through updated understanding, reassurance, clarification and question and answer sessions.
For over 45 years Michael and Antony have managed the needs and expectations of over 20,000 private patients and clients during which time they have evolved and refined an approach to the conversion of ‘client need to optimal outcome’. Their approach ensures optimisation of the benefits that Nutritional Therapy and Lifestyle interventions can bring to complicated cases.
This 3 hour workshop will provide clinicians and practitioners a chance to learn about common key mechanisms, the human interactions employed and the use of clinical experience to untangle complicated multi system dysfunction cases using minimal interventions and evidence based recommendations.
The speakers will integrate existing knowledge on molecular mechanisms of metabolism and metabolic disease with emerging knowledge on the influence of hormones, nutrients and microbial flora that influence systemic metabolism and immunity.
They will also explain some of the growing understanding of the role of processes, such as endoplasmic reticulum stress response, autophagy, mitochondrial dysfunction, inflammation, immune activation and hormone signalling.
In summary, this 3 hour event event will mix mechanisms, substantive & exploratory science and clinical application. Utilising functional medicine principles the presenters will use 3 case histories to place emphasis on the strategic application of interventions that produce substantive, incremental gains in health recovery with additional beneficial unintended consequences and also reveal the odd clinical pearl here and there!
- Stimulate new ideas, and offer novel solutions
- Reinforce current best practice methods
- Challenge entrenched beliefs with evolving comprehension and application
- Offer new and substantive clinical ideas, including the role of the ‘meaning response’
- Support the functional medicine approach to patient care illustrated through case history reviews
- Diminish your temptation to be protocol driven in treatment plans by opening up new strategies
- Provoke discussion and review, through 3 Q&A sessions
- Provide networking opportunities at breaks
- Make you feel positive about your opportunities for helping more people recover their health safely
Antony Haynes BA Hons Dip ION mBANT RNT has been in private practice for over 28 years and is one of the most experienced Registered Nutritional Therapists in the country. He is one of the first practitioners to implement the principles of Functional Medicine in the UK, since 1992. Antony has been teaching for 28 years and regularly presents webinars to Nutritional Therapists and practitioners on a variety of different health topics.
Michael Ash. DO, ND, BSc, RNT has been in practice for some 35 years. He graduated from ION in the 1980s and also sat as a governor, chair and until recently as a fellow.
Building one of the largest integrative medicine clinics in the southwest of England (he sold this in 2007), he embraced the concepts of functional medicine and employed them in his clinical development from 1991. Since 1992 he has researched the role of the mucosal immune system, especially in relation to the gastrointestinal tract and applied the emerging comprehension of relationships between the bacterial constituents and the immune system to his clinical needs. This clinical experience and intellectual rigor produced impressive clinical outcomes and as such he has presented in the role of ‘wet tissues’ and nutritional immunology in human health in 5 continents to thousands of clinicians over the last 15 years and has published numerous papers in peer reviewed journals.
