    Vaporizer Technologies: Safety Considerations and a Mechanism for the Delivery of Botanical Medicines
    Kenneth Proefrock, NMD

    Note: This session was a special addition to maximize live acupuncture hours.

    How to Access: Live session is over. Watch the streaming video in Recorded Videos section below.

    The first commercially viable ‘e-cigarette’ ushered in a whole new industry when it was patented and brought to market in 2003. Over the past 17 years, we have witnessed an explosion of companies with devices that promise a less toxic way to deliver nicotine and cannabinoids to consumers than traditional smoking. As the technology of this industry has evolved we have witnessed controversy and new safety concerns about the additives used for delivery, coloring, flavoring and stabilizing these products, we have also witnessed an increase in potentially addictive activity in younger people.

    ‘Vaping’ has become so commonplace that it has become a source of friction between parents and their children, schools and their students, even workers in their workplaces. The commonly held idea is that the second-hand ’smoke’ from these devices is harmless and non-toxic, however, that may depend on the individual and the product being used. There have been some notable public health crises related to vaping that are useful to consider, as well as some of the regulatory attempts by the FDA that reflect their thinking on how best to regulate this industry. Amidst all of this controversy, vaping has become an increasingly popular pursuit that is not likely to go away anytime soon.

    10:30 AM – Noon, Eastern Time
    Restoring Mitochondrial Function through Botanicals and other Naturopathic Therapies
    Mary Rondeau, ND, RH (AHG)

    Note: This session is a special addition to maximize live acupuncture hours.

    How to Access: Live session is over. Watch the streaming video in Recorded Videos section below.

    Mitochondrial dysfunction is characterized by the reduction of energy output from the electron transport chain. Research confirms that reduced mitochondrial function is associated with nearly all chronic conditions, including neurodegenerative, psychiatric, cardiovascular, metabolic, autoimmune, cancer, chronic immune disorders and musculoskeletal. This lecture covers symptoms that are suggestive of mitochondrial concerns and testing methods to determine treatment strategies. These include botanicals specific to organ systems, nutrients and nutritional protocols to increase efficiency and restore function to mitochondria.

    Effective Pain Relief with Botanical and Nutritional Medicine
    David Winston, RH (AHG)

    How to Access: Live session is over. Watch the streaming video in Recorded Videos section below.

    The search for effective, safe and non-addictive pain medication is an age-old quest. Studies show many people, especially the elderly, the poor, people of color and women are undertreated for chronic pain. While herbs are not as powerful as opiates and other pharmaceutical medications, they can offer safer and often highly effective pain management. In this talk we discuss how specific herbs can relieve specific types of pain, how to combine herbs to create a synergistic effect and reduce inflammation, pain perception and spasm and how botanicals can enhance the effects of pharmaceutical pain medications.

    12:30 PM – 2:00 PM, Eastern Time
    Panel: Managing Symptoms of Hormonal Disruption with Botanical Medicine
    Panelists: Jill Stansbury, ND, Jill Crista, ND, and Kenneth Proefrock, NMD

    How to Access: Live session is over. Watch the streaming video in Recorded Videos section below.

    This panel’s focus is on endocrine disruptors in the environment. What does that mean, what compounds are endocrine disruptors, how can we avoid them, how do we get them out of the body once we are exposed? Do foods, herbs, legumes, fiber protect against environmental agents?

    NOTE: Priority One Vitamins representatives will be available for questions via Zoom from 2:00 – 2:30 Eastern Time on Saturday. You can access their Zoom room here.

    2:30 PM – 4:00 PM, Eastern Time
    Botanical Medicine Targeting Cancer Stem Cells
    Donald Yance, RH (AHG)

    How to Access: Live session is over. Watch the streaming video in Recorded Videos section below.

    Cancer stem cells are a subpopulation of cancer cells that reside underneath the surface. It is like the root system of the cancer, which is responsible for cancer migration, invasion and chemotherapy resistance. Cancer stem cells also give rise to tumor bulk through continuous self-renewal and differentiation. Understanding stem cell signaling pathways and molecular mechanisms is essential for developing botanical and nutritional therapies. The research shows the unique and very promising effect of these therapies, which target specific cancer signaling pathways responsible for chemotherapy resistance, alterations of cellular metabolism and impaired apoptosis. We highlight numerous natural compounds including curcumin, diallyl trisulfide, chrysin, resveratrol, Acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid, Bacoside A apigenin, quercetin, ellagic acid, honokiol, epigallocatechin, and sulforaphane.

    7:00 PM – 8:30 PM, Eastern Time

    Conquering Toxic Mold Exposure
    Jill Crista, ND

    How to Access: Live session is over. Watch the streaming video in Recorded Videos section below.

    Climate change and building practices have created the perfect storm for indoor mold blooms. Unfortunately, few agencies responsible for defining mold-related illness recognize the deleterious health impacts from mold mycotoxins. Therefore, many cases of mold illness are misidentified, and the cause goes untreated, resulting in needless suffering. I’m on a mission to raise medical literacy about mold and mold-related illness. In my experience, natural medicine holds the key to conquering this problem.

    In this presentation, we will define mold illness and the mechanisms for creating illness, identify the symptoms of mold illness, including a useful clinical questionnaire and discuss lab testing options and limitations. Learn naturopathic approaches to treatment including foods, beverages and supplements that help and hinder including treatise on bile, binders, and cholagogues. Presentation will also help attendees identify select tools to protect and repair from mold mycotoxin exposure, and explore both systemic and intranasal antifungal treatment. Botanicals covered include aloe, green tea, milk thistle, turmeric, artichoke, holy basil, thyme and more.

    12:30 PM – 2:00 PM, Eastern Time
    Panel: Restoring Mental Health in the 21st Century: Managing Chronic Overwhelm

    Teresa Boardwine, RH (AHG), Katie Stage, ND, RH (AHG) and David Winston, RH (AHG)

    How to Access: Live session is over. Watch the streaming video in Recorded Videos section below.

    Those patients who tend to be overwhelmed by life events have been especially challenged this past year with political, social and environmental difficulties at every turn. These events have driven more people into a state of being chronically overwhelmed. What do we recommend to restore equilibrium in these times, both for ourselves as practitioners and our patients? Discover lifestyle, botanical and nutritional therapies you may not have yet considered.

    2:30 PM – 4:00 PM, Eastern Time
    Cannabis in Medicine: Applications and Limitations
    Jason Miller, DACM, LAc

    How to Access: Live session is over. Watch the streaming video in Recorded Videos section below.

    Emerging research on cannabis corroborates its use for pain, nausea, PTSD and other mental health conditions, but it has to be used with care and knowledge. Cannabis also has an addiction profile similar to alcohol and with widespread legalization these side effects are becoming better-known. Explore these applications and limitations with an experienced practitioner with a common-sense approach.


    NOTE: Priority One Vitamins representatives will be available for questions via Zoom from 4:00 – 5:00 PM Eastern Time on Sunday. You can access their Zoom room here.


    5:00 PM – 6:30 PM, Eastern Time
    The Chemistry of Flavors: Expanding our Palette and Increasing our Neural Connections (Demonstration with audience participation)
    Kenneth Proefrock, NMD

    How to Access: Live session is over. Watch the streaming video in Recorded Videos section below.

    Taste brings in at least eight categories of specific sensory experience: sour, sweet, salty, bitter, savory, pungent, spicy and astringent, with an additional component of texture and mouth-feel. Expanding the dietary/flavor palette provides new and interesting input to our palate and, it turns out, has a stimulating effect on the genesis of neural connections in our nervous system and a dramatic effect on our memory. Here we provide a context for expanding one’s palate and calibrating that experience in a meaningful way that is specific to healing and botanical medicine. 

    Kenneth has provided a list of herbs and spices he’ll describe. While it’s not required to go out and purchase all these, it will add to the experience to have these items on hand and as we discuss the constituents, we can taste and smell the physical material and begin to glean the subtleties of flavor.

    The specific items we will discuss and sample:
    Cayenne and Paprika (a smoky paprika is even better)
    Cumin seed
    Cardamom
    Coffee
    Cinnamon
    Clove
    Nutmeg
    Dill
    Caraway
    Coriander
    Anise
    Vanilla


    Live Online Sessions — Monday, June 7

    Botanical Therapies for Childhood Asthma (Recorded video with live Q&A)
    Mary Bove, ND

    How to Access: Live session is over. Watch the streaming video in Recorded Videos section below.

    Currently there are over 6 million children in the USA suffering from asthma. Asthma is a common reason for kids missing school and one of the most common chronic health conditions that affect children. Management is key for reducing the occurrence, severity, and frequency of the symptoms along with improving quality of life. Look at botanical, nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle strategies for managing chronic asthma as well as dealing with acute asthmatic events.

    12:30 PM – 2:00 PM, Eastern Time
    Clinical Uses of Autumn Crocus (Colchicum atumnale)
    Jillian Stansbury, ND

    How to Access: Live session is over. Watch the streaming video in Recorded Videos section below.

    Colchicum is the source of the colchicine alkaloid, well known for quickly reducing inflammation in gouty arthritis. However, Colchicum may have many other uses due to affects on microtubules of the cytoskeleton, affecting mitosis, vesicle trafficking, and cellular structure and dynamics. Despite potential toxicity, long-term use of colchicine is shown to be safe in children, and even in pregnant and nursing women when used in very small amounts to treat rheumatoid arthritis and other collagen vascular diseases. This presentation will review the history of the alkaloid as well as current research on the plant of conditions other than gout.

    Biome Research is an innovative probiotic technology company focused on improving survivability of beneficial bacteria, both before and after introduction to the human GI tract. The first step, crucial to maintaining the survivability of bacteria, is to focus on protected, cold-shipping. Next, we surround each and every fragile, freeze-dried cell to protect from stomach acid by using a unique, seaweed mucopolysaccharide. And last, unique to us, we address the rehydration of the cells during reanimation from a freeze-dried state utilizing a proprietary electrolyte blend.
