An Integrative Approach to Mast Cell Activation Syndrome: Dr Tania Dempsey, MD
This webinar will cover the biology of the mast cell, will look at the development of mast cell activation syndrome, and will explore new research on MCAS as a driver of complex, chronic illnesses, including chemical intolerance.
The "4Ms" - Mitochondria, Microglia, Microenvironment, and Micronutrients with Dr Terry Wahls
Billions have been spent on the study of pathogenesis of disease and understanding cellular physiology. Life is a complex interconnected network of pathways and ecosystems that contribute to the health of the cell, the organs, and the organism. Focusing on single molecular pathways are unlikely to restore health and healing. This talk will review the role of the cell danger response and mitochondria in the development of chronic disease and the healing cycle. It will also review the role of the microglia, the microenvironment, and micronutrients in creating a neurotoxic that disrupts myelination or supports remyelination. Dietary and modifiable lifestyle factors that can influence microglial reactivity will be highlighted. Approaches that support multiple interconnected pathways will be more effective at stopping the cell danger response, calming the microglia, restoring the microenvironment, and allowing for remyelination. Dr. Wahls will also review results from her clinical trials in the setting of multiple sclerosis and a brief overview of the Wahls Behaviour Change™ Model.
Butyrate’s Impact on the Microbiome and Neurological Function
A researched based presentation outlining the profound benefits of butyrate. Evaluating how we can use butyrate prophylactically to support gut associated disease. And, clinical applications of using butyrate as an anti-inflammatory mediator to support and manage neurodegeneration.
An examination of stress + the impact of autoimmunity + clinical uses for BodyBio Calm
In this webinar we talk with Teri Cochrane to examine autoimmunity through the lens of genetic expression, pathogenic reactivation and stress response. Stress, in many cases, is the firestarter for this cascade of disruptions. We will discuss how both practitioners use BodyBio Calm to target a broad spectrum of disorders rooted in the stress response. The Cochrane Method, the first step towards restoring balanced health is to calm the body. In instances of autoimmunity, this step is a vital component of any effective supplement routine.

Dayan Goodenowe on The Biochemistry of Cancer and Dementia – The Critical Requirements and Roles of Phosphatidylcholines and Plasmalogens: What Every Functional Medicine Doctor Needs to Know.
Phosphatidylcholine is a critical component of biological membranes, a storage reservoir of essential fatty acids, and an integrated precursor and product of core biochemical processes required for life and health. Phosphatidylcholine deficiencies are linked to numerous adverse health outcomes, yet blood levels are rarely monitored. In this lecture, I will explain the key elements of phosphatidylcholine biochemistry and why maintaining healthy levels are important and why the risks of low phosphatidylcholine levels are to be avoided.
