Stress-induced Sleep Challenges: Limbic System Restoration with Botanicals* with Dr. Lise Alschuler, ND, FABNO

FREE Webinar
According to the American Sleep Association 50-70 million adults in the U.S. struggle with normal sleep patterns. Circadian rhythm disruption is associated with sleep issues. The limbic system mediates this connection. Understanding and optimizing the complex interplay between psychologic distress, inflammation, the limbic system and the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis is critical in the integrative approach to healthy sleep patterns.* This presentation will emphasize the use of botanicals in this approach.

OCTOBER 3RD, 2017
Botanicals for a Healthy Inflammatory Response; Cooling the Fire Dragon* with Dr. Ellen Kamhi, PhD, RN, AHG, AHN-BC

FREE Webinar
For centuries societies around the globe have experimented with natural remedies that support healthy inflammation, as in the traditional story of the Fire Dragon. Current Scientific evidence supports many of these traditional therapeutics, which often have a much better risk to benefit profile than conventional drugs. Plants and plant compounds are now being researched for their benefits, polyphenol compounds being one of those. Many polyphenolic compounds impact the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines by human lymphocytes, and how human SNP variations can lead to differential outcomes within the inflammatory response. In this presentation we will discuss the basic etiology and range of substantiated natural constituents that may help support a healthy inflammatory response.*

Botanicals focused on include:
Turmeric
Resveratrol (Resveratrol 150)
Quercetin
Black Pepper
Ginger
Rosemary
Wild Lettuce
Jamaican Dogwood
