Women’s Health: From PMS to Menopause

Free Webinar - Tuesday April 20, 2020 at 12:30PM

Naturopathic & Traditional Chinese Medicine Approaches for Hormonal Harmony

Although women’s health is a broad category of medicine, gynecology is its centerpiece. Conditions such as premenstrual syndrome, painful periods, irregular menses and hot flashes are common chief complaints that can benefit through the use of Naturopathic and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Both Naturopathic Doctors (ND) and TCM practitioners evaluate patients through questioning and examining to determine the cause of conditions and develop a treatment plan.
Many symptoms are due to hormonal imbalances, most frequently “out of range” levels of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and/or cortisol. Naturopathic Doctors (ND) are experienced in evaluating specific blood work that measures hormone levels. The ND will encourage lifestyle changes, modifications of diet and prescribe botanicals and supplements to alleviate symptoms and heal the body naturally.
Acupuncture is based on the principles of TCM, an ancient system dating back before the discovery of hormones and their functions. In gynecology, an acupuncturist’s treatment plan does not balance hormones per se, but focuses primarily on blood and energy known as qi. Aspects of the blood in particular help determine the cause and provide information to alleviate symptoms. Acupuncturists use very fine needles to improve the quality of blood and flow of qi to achieve harmony and balance in the body.
If you suffer from any issues pertaining to women’s health, naturopathic medicine and acupuncture can lessen symptoms naturally and without troublesome side effects.

Mental Health Update - Dr. Peter Speaks at the CAND in Palm Springs, CA

03-01-2020 - Palm Springs, California

Mental Health Update - What is New in Natural Medicine for Mental Health?

Anxiety and depression are major reasons patients visit their medical doctors. Way too often, patients are given drugs which not only do not address the underlying concerns, but also contribute to further worsening of these conditions. While some remedies are well known for these conditions, a few supplements are relatively unheard of, yet quite effective. In this talk, Dr. Bongiorno will review the overall naturopathic view and treatment for these mental health conditions. In this context, he will focus on the newer supplemental choices: lithium, CBD oil, apocynum venetum, rosmarinic acid, carnosine, and also give research evidence and clinical experience for use of saffron, curcumin, and berberines. These are supplements that are not as well-known for mental health, but still excellent to help a patient move back to center when properly used. This is Dr. Bongiorno’s yearly update of what every naturopathic doctor needs to know to treat mental health disorders.

After the presentation, participants will be able to confidently:
1. Review naturopathic principles on how to treat anxiety and depression with sleep, exercise, foods, digestion, inflammation, mitochondrial work, adrenal stress, and basic supplementation.
2. Review the newest and most relevant supplements for anxiety and depression.
3. Learn the history, usage, and evidence based research of lithium, CBD oil, saffron, and many other herbs.

How to Leverage the Mechanisms of Ketamine with Natural Medicines to Treat Depression

2-22-2020 - Dr. Peter Speaking at the Integrative Health Care Symposium

Ketamine is well- known to be the quickest acting anti-depressant, with profound effects after 40 minutes. While helpful, it is also known that ketamine has significant toxicity and questionable duration of effect. Mounting research shows many natural compounds that may affect the body’s biochemistry in a way that can mimic the positive effects of ketamine.

Dr. Peter Bongiorno will explain the mechanisms of ketamine action, and review the animal and clinical research showing the use of lifestyle modifications, supplements and Chinese herbs that can have similar effects. He will also review how genetic predisposition, toxic exposure from environmental toxins and products of internal processes (such as beta amyloid, glutamate and quinolic acid) can affect these pathways. The attendee will leave with specific knowledge of natural medicine recommendations that Dr. Bongiorno finds effective in his patients.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to discuss the efficacy and toxicity of ketamine to treat depression.
Participants will be able to describe the mechanisms of ketamine to relieve depression.
Participants will be able to discuss natural remedies (lifestyle, foods, supplements, herbals) that can mimic ketamine mechanisms.
Participants will be able to discuss how to use natural remedies in combination to create ketamine-like effects to relieve depression.
Session Date: Feb 22 2020 10:45 am – 12:00 pm
