Conference Description
Approximately 50 million people in the United States have at least one of the 100 autoimmune diseases. This number increases everyday, and the symptoms can range from infrequent flares to daily debilitating pain. Due to the common and widespread nature of autoimmune diseases, it is very likely that us as naturopathic doctors will see patients with these concerns on a daily basis. Therefore it is extremely important to be knowledgeable in this field. This conference will emphasize clinical updates regarding various types of autoimmune diseases and their diagnostics, treatment solutions, and preventative measures. We have an all-star lineup of speakers ready to share their clinical expertise and who will provide you with the latest in naturopathic and integrative diagnostics, treatment, and management. If you see a variety of different autoimmune conditions in your office on a regular basis or just want to learn more about this constantly evolving field of medicine, then this conference is for you. If you want to practice high quality, cutting edge primary care medicine, you won’t want to miss this conference!


Mona Morstein, ND, DHANP
Presentation Title: Type 1 Diabetes in the Pediatric Population

 
Approximately 18,000 pediatric patients are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes each year, and the incidence rates are increasing in the US and world-wide.  Being able to give excellent diabetes care to pediatric patients is a real service to the children and their parents.  Conventional care is problematic: it considers T1DM pediatric patients to be adequately controlled if their A1C is <8.0%, and the axiom of eating whatever they wish and covering it with insulin—a failed, frustrating and dangerous method of care—is still their leading treatment paradigm. Naturopathic medicine can effectively bridge this gap. In this lecture, Dr. Mona Morstein will lead attendees through several key areas of concern in treating T1DM pediatrics patients.


Leah K. Hollon, ND, MPH
Presentation Title:  Drain the Swamp

 
What if we are adding to the swamp of autoimmune disease without knowing it? Even though it is known that autoimmune disease impacts mainly women, where the TH1/TH2 balance becomes more compromised, could there be additional interactive forces and sediment that we are unaware of? What specific clues serve as indicators to possibly prevent against some of the rarest and/or debilitating autoimmune diseases? Within this session we will discuss common yet often unapproached biochemical and epigenetic factors that serve as early warning signals for our patients. Where, if ignored could lead to a further muddy mirage. We will compare and contrast specific AID including Guillian-Barre, Sjogren’s, POTS, ankylosing spondylitis, RA and MS. Within these diseases, similar mechanisms exist and thus having short and long-term targeted support is imperative for stability and healing.  Current supportive literature and research will be shared to provide insight and therapy for AID through pharmacotherapy, pharmacognosy, homeopathy, nutrition, and lifestyle support.  The session will consist of lecture and case-based learning.

Eric Udell
Presentation Title:  Homœopathy in the Treatment of Autoimmune Diseases

 
This presentation will provide attendees with a practical guide to effectively using homœopathy in the treatment of AID. Dr. Udell will provide an overview of the major issues involved in the homœopathic treatment of AID patients, including a review of the evidence, prescribing principles, case management, the concurrent use of conventional medical therapies, and the utilization of complementary naturopathic therapies.'

Andrea Gruszecki
Presentation Title: Environmental stressors and the incidence of multiple sclerosis

 
The incidence of multiple sclerosis (MS) in the United States continues to rise each decade. A variety of factors, including environmental exposures (chemical, metals), psychological distress, and genetics may contribute to the induction or progression of MS.  Sun-belt countries have a very low risk of MS, yet the incidence of MS has recently increased three-fold in Iran over a 20-year period. Factors that may increase the risk of MS will be explored through the lens of this “living laboratory”. Few effective therapies have been available for MS patients until recently, when human trials using estriol and other hormones demonstrated positive, neuroprotective results. The assessment of hormone status and the use of nutritional, mind-body and hormone therapies for MS will be reviewed.

Todd A. Born, ND, CNS
Presentation Title: Autoimmune Disease:  A Route to Resolution

 
Autoimmunity is an immune response directed against an antigen normally present within the body of the host.  The disease is a pathologic condition caused by a specific adaptive autoimmune response.  This presentation will cover the most common autoimmune diseases, by body system, epidemiology, as well as what they have in common.  Dr. Born will thoroughly cover simple, yet effective treatment strategies and specifics to optimize patient outcomes.

Leslie Axelrod, ND, L.Ac
Presentation Title:  Naturopathic Approach to Rheumatology


One of the most common types of conditions that naturopathic doctors see are rheumatological conditions. Therefore it is imperative that NDs know how to successfully diagnose with labs and imaging, interpret these findings, prevent these conditions if there is a family history or predisposition, support the body while it heals, and monitor the symptoms. In this presentation, Dr. Axelrod will discuss how to order and interpret diagnostic tools in common autoimmune conditions. She will also discuss the management of patients on conventional medications, including steroid use and weaning. Finally, she will discuss naturopathic therapeutics, clinical updates, and cases.
