Abstract:

Reflexology is an ancient modality that has seen resurgence since the late 1800’s and more till today. It is a unique form of healing as, by working feet, hands and face, the depths of the body are reached, both physically and mentally. Research, using Doppler sonography and fMRI, shows that working specific reflexes on the feet increases activity in the organ worked as well as in the section of the brain that relates to that organ. Foot and hand reflexology were researched by Eunice Ingham over a period of some 30 years. She extensively mapped the body on both feet and hands based on feedback from clients during and after the treatment. Working on the face for healing has been practiced across cultures and continents. Facial reflexology today has two main streams. Dr. Prof. Bùi Quôc Châu, adapted auricular acupuncture to facial acupuncture and eventually to facial acupressure. He used various projections of the body on the face. Years of research led to the creation of effective treatment formulas using points and zones on the face. He called this method as Dien Chan. Lone Sorenson created facial reflexology sorensensistem. Lone, an Avid student of Natural therapies witnessed many healing traditions across the world including Asian cultures and South American tribes. Chosen and selected techniques from these ancient healing arts have created an effective modality that reaches deep into the body. Reflexology today is a vibrant modality.

Abstract:

Balance is a fundamental function that humans share with less evolved animals. It forms aprimitive building block for our elaborate, humanistic skills, such as working through complex problems. The balance system is complex: proprioceptive, vestibular and visual inputs are collated and manipulated to give an internal representation of our world. If one of these systems is dysfunctional, it can cause chaos throughout the body, including chronic pain, headaches, nausea, dizziness, fatigue and cognitive decline. These delicate systems can be disrupted by chemical, physical and emotional perturbations. For example, non-coeliac gluten sensitivity is increasingly being recognised by mainstream medicine, including as a cause of ataxia. There’s also increasing evidence for mild traumatic brain injuries and it’s involvement with vestibular dysfunction.

The function of each of these receptors and their collective processing can be assessed with physical examinations including visual inspection and simple bedside testing. More advanced tools, such as computerised dynamic posturography (computer balance assessments) and quantitative electroencephalograms (QEEG functional brain scans), can be used to further quantify and trackchanges in hyper- or hypo-functional areas of the brain and nervous system. These quantitative measures enhance our understanding of the “grey areas” in health concerns, such as chronic dizziness.

Abstract:

Green tea , is a beverage that is popular worldwide. Polyphenols in green tea have been receiving attention  for the maintenance of human health . The contribution of antioxidant activity in preventing diseases caused by oxidative stress has been focused upon. Hyperhomocysteinemia (Hhcy)is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

In this study we investigated the effects of green tea extract (GTE) on isoprenaline (ISO)-inducedmyocardialinfarction (MI) in hyperhomocysteinemic rats.  Hhcy was induced by daily intake of methionine (1gkg-1body weight) in the drinking water for 4 weeks. MI was then produced by a single subcutaneous injection of ISO (300mgkg-1).Electrographic parameters, heart rate, ST interval, blood pressure and serum levels of creatine kinase (CK), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH)&SGOT & lipid peroxidation  (MDA&GSH) were measured in heart tissue as indices of oxidative stress.

Hhcy resulted in significant blood pressure reduction, ST segment elevation and increase in heart rate, serum CK & LDH levels. Cardiac MDA was significantly increased, while GSH was decreased as compared to normal control group. All the previously mentioned parameters were significantly exaggerated in Hhcy rats treated with ISO as compared to Hhcy group. Administration of GTE during the induction of Hhcy showed a considerable reduction in serum markers of cardiotoxicity, heart rate, elevated ST segment & significant improve in the reduced blood pressure.  Cardiac MDA was decreased while cardiac GSH was elevated . Hhcy+ISO caused disorganization of myocardial tissue which was restored in animals treated with GTE along with Hhcy+ISO.

It can be concluded that GTE possesses an antioxidant activity and by virtue of this action it can protect the heart from Hhcy alone or Hhcy+ISO induced MI.

Abstract:

 The Effects of Regular Chiropractic Care on Muscular Strength

The purpose of our study was to explore the relationship between regular chiropractic care and muscular strength. Chiropractic practice philosophy states that the correction of vertebral subluxation complex promotes health through enhancing neurological integrity. Accordingly, chiropractic adjustments aimed at reducing vertebral subluxation complex (VSC) should also reduce neurological interference at the involved levels. A reduction of interference to the nervous system would thereby allow muscles to more fully express their functional potential, including an improvement in strength.

Operational Definitions

One Repetition Maximum (ORM): the maximum amount of weight one can lift in a single repetition for a given exercise. There is a significant correlation between one repetition maximum and muscular strength. Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC): B.J. Palmer explained that when bones of the spine misaligned they had the potential to put pressure on nerves, which could lead to interference of mental impulses between the brain and body.1 Recently the “vertebral subluxation complex” model has been revised to include kinesiology, neurology, myology, connective tissue pathology, angiology, inflammatory response, anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry.6 These are the objective indicators of the presence of vertebral subluxation complex. It is proposed that vertebral subluxation complex manifests differently in different people depending on a variety of variables such as location of biomechanical changes in the spine.

Abstract:

Due to the individualised philosophy of naturopaths they prescribe individual herbal formulations for their patients. In practice, this means that the majority of naturopathy consultations result in the extemporaneous compounding of a prescription. Naturopaths using herbal medicines predominately prescribe fluid extracts (which use a mixture of water and ethanol as the solvent, extracting using a process of maceration or cold percolation). The second most common prescription by naturopaths who use herbal medicine are herbal teas – that is combinations of dried herb material to be used by the patient to make tea. In the case of herbal teas, the mixing of different herb material for therapeutic purposes constitutes extemporaneous compounding. While herbal medicines are most commonly prescribed for internal use, a small percentage of herbal prescriptions by herbalists are for other traditional forms of herbal application, including extemporaneously compounded creams and poultices. Naturopaths are limited in their prescriptions by the Poisons Standard 2012; unlike pharmacists they cannot extemporaneously compound or dispense any substance included in Schedule 2, 3, or 4 of this Standard. What this means is that medicines prescribed by naturopaths are of a low risk nature. The use of compounding pharmacies to help a naturopathic practitioner prescribe schedule 2 and 3 compounds can be extremely beneficial for practices.

Biography:

Paul Turner completed his Bachelor of Applied Science (Osteopathy) in 1993 at RMIT University (Bundoora, Australia) and has been involved with education in Manual Therapies since 1996.  Through experience in private practice and in education he observed students and practitioners struggle integrating holistic and biomedical approaches so returned to university and completed a Batchelor of Health Science (Honours) in 2014, conducting research exploring this relationship as well as to develop a theoretical framework model which helps bridge a perceived gap between holistic concept and it’s practical implementation.

 

Abstract:

Paul Turner presents some of the results of his research from a grounded theory study interviewing experienced Osteopathic practitioners about their views on biomedical and holistic approaches as well as the relationship between any individual practitioners concept of holism and its practical implementation.  This study also explored the role educatation played in the understanding and practice of holism.. These issues were important to investigate in order to develop a theoretical framework of holism which adequately explained these relationships and to provide a model of practice which may give insight into understanding, assessing and treating patients with chronic health issues.   The theoretical framework identifies important relationships, not only between the tissues causing symptoms and the symptoms themselves but also between the tissues causing symptoms and other areas/components of the whole person (physical, energetic, emotional, mental, nutritional, environmental or other) which are potentially involved and which are collectively contributing to the entire “pattern of dysfunction” within any individual patient, as well as how to recognise these “other” areas from clinical assessment.   It is hoped that the theoretical framework of holism presented will provide a plateform for future research to improve education (i.e. achieve a balance between holistic and biomedical elements) and health outcomes, particulary in the area of chronic health. Although participants were Osteopaths, because biomedical education and holistic principles form the basis of many health professions, the framework discussed has theoretical and practical implications applicable to many health professionals.

Abstract:

Anne takes you on a journey behind the scenes of  The Natural Facelift. How can we, with the help of ancient knowledge, rejuvenate and refresh our facial features naturally? Using selected techniques from Facial Acupressure and Facial Reflexology, prevent and reduce sagging of the face. Fine lines are softened and may, with consistent use, even disappear. Established wrinkles become much less prominent and, with daily use of the techniques may fade over time. Look rejuvenated, refreshed and radiant not only for yourself but also for professional profiles, first encounters and selfies. Following this very brief workshop, you will walk away with helpful information and some techniques to refresh parts of the face. Starting  with a ‘damaged canvas’ Anne transformed her own face to look younger and fresher today than she did 4 years ago. With her background as a professional Reflexologist, she explains how these techniques impact general health because the whole body is projected on the face. Anne is a woman on a mission to empower people globally to look their best naturally, avoiding invasive and expensive procedures. She speaks and teaches from the heart and personal experience.
