AutoImmunity & Nutrigenomics Causes & Solutions Masterclass

Early Bird
AutoImmunity & Nutrigenomics Causes & Solutions Masterclass
  Zoom

Aimed at nutritionists, naturopaths, and health professionals. An in-depth full day of education, virtual event. 

Learn how to navigate both common and overlooked "roadblocks" in your autoimmune clients and discover why removing the trigger doesn't always break the chronic inflammatory cycle associated with Hashimoto's & other Autoimmunities, and what strategies you can implement to cease this vicious cycle from a functional and nutrigenomic perspective.

Wednesday 4th November 2020 • 10am-5pm • Live-streamed  & Recorded event 

Our Price:  £99.00
+

Master the functional and nutrigenomic concepts of immune regulation in autoimmune conditions with a specific focus on Hashimoto’s thyroid physiology assessment, and functional clinical applications. Learn how to overcome both common and overlooked "roadblocks" that are preventing the thyroid/immune system from "balance" and homeostasis.

Over 6 hours we will share functional medicine and nutrigenomic concepts of autoimmunity, present the mechanisms that may lead to cross-reactivity with the thyroid gland and other autoimmunities. Explain why removing the "trigger" doesn't always break the chronic inflammatory cycle associated with autoimmunity and Hashimoto's, and what strategies can stop this cycle together with sharing clinical applications to dietary management, nutritional supplementation, and environmental triggers associated with Hashimoto’s and other autoimmunities.

Learn how to overcome both common and overlooked "roadblocks" in your clients that are preventing their immune system from achieving resolution and understand why removing the "trigger" doesn't always break the chronic inflammatory cycle associated with Hashimoto's and Autoimmunities, and how to approach to cease this  vicious cycle.

With this connected thinking approach our ultimate objective is that you feel empowered to create thyroid/immune healing action plans for your clients rather than chasing one standard protocol.

Key learning objectives:

Over 6 hours (delivered in 4 sessions) we will share functional medicine and nutrigenomic concepts of autoimmunity, present the mechanisms that may lead to cross-reactivity with the thyroid gland and clinical applications to dietary management, nutritional supplementation, and environmental triggers associated with Hashimoto’s and other autoimmunities.

Learn how to overcome both common and overlooked "roadblocks" in your clients that are preventing their immune system from achieving resolution and understand why removing the "trigger" doesn't always break the chronic inflammatory cycle associated with Hashimoto's and Autoimmunities, and how to approach to cease this  vicious cycle.

Session 1: 10-11.30am - Tanya discusses and presents: 

  • A Review of immunology and concepts of how autoimmunities progresses, focusing on:

    • T cell polarization imbalances

    • T cell fates and functions and why it’s not all about just increasing Tregs!

  • Thyroid physiology & metabolic steps required for thyroid synthesis

  • How thyroid hormones influence cells & physiological systems of the body, the brain, GI tract, Immune system, bone metabolism, CDV system, hormone steroidogenesis,body composition, lipids & cholesterol metabolism

  • The most important lab testing for immunity and thyroid and how to interpret

11.20- 11.30: Q&A on Session 1

11.30am - 10 minute comfort break

Session 2: 11.40am - 1pm - Emma gets up close and personal with Nutrigenomics presenting: 

  • How and why autoimmunity runs in families

  • Common genetic risk factors for autoimmune diseases

  • Nutrigenomics & AITDs (autoimmune thyroid diseases)

  • SNPs impacting inflammation & anti-inflammatory nutrients and lifestyle factors and their essential role in enabling a personalised interpretation of thyroid pathophysiology test results including: Thyroid - HPT axis, thyroid hormone and metabolic function. 

12.50pm - 1pm: Q&A on Session 2

1-2pm Lunch Break 

Session 3: 2pm - 3.15pm - Emma Beswick Presents Nutrigenomics & Thyroid Balance:

Genes & SNPs that impact the thyroid hormone lifecycle and how nutrigenomics enables personalised interpretation of functional tests including:

  • HPT axis - thyroid hormone synthesis - personal set points, nutrient needs and impacts of stress and environmental toxins
  • Thyroid hormone transport - why serum test results may not reflect cellular activity

  • Thyroid hormone activation - T4 to T3 and rT3, and metabolism

Session 4: 3.15pm- 4.30pm: Tanya discusses and presents

  • Triggers : chemical, dietary, lifestyle and environmental for autoimmunity - focusing on:
    • Molecular mimicry/cross-reactivity
    • Haptenation
    • Immunological tolerance
  • Clinical approaches to managing autoimmunities with a functional medicine model that includes addressing T cell polarization imbalances and inhibiting the vicious cycle of co-activation
  • Laboratory tests to evaluate environmental triggers for Hashimoto’s Autoimmunities 

  • Clinical strategies to manage environmental and lifestyle triggers for autoimmunity

4.30pm - 5pm: Final Q&A 

5pm Close

 

Tanya Borowski, Cip CNM, mNP, IFMCP Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner

Tanya initially completed her nutritional training at The College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, but wanted to work more directly with clients, helping them to prevent and reverse chronic disease and truly transform their health. Combined with her passion for nutrition she decided to pursue a career in functional medicine. Now, as a fully certified IFM practitioner she brings her passion and dedication to each client, empowering them to obtain their optimal health potential.

Tanya has a specialist focus on Hashimotos & Thyroid solutions, Digestion & Gut health and poor energy delivery conditions such as Chronic Fatigue.

She has completed additional advanced training with the Hashimoto's Institute & all courses offered by the The Kharrazian Institute, developed as an educational institute focused on teaching clinical practice models to healthcare professionals by Dr Datis Kharrazian. Tanya regularly lectures for several organisations such as ION and is in private practice in Lewes, Sussex.

Emma Beswick, MBA, BA (Hons), NT(Dip)

She is passionate about the power of nutrigenomics to enable personalisation of nutrition and lifestyle to empower individuals to optimise their health. Emma’s focus is on identifying and understanding common genetic variants that can be adjusted, compensated or exploited through diet and lifestyle. Although we can’t change our genetic code, we can change their (our) environment, to benefit our physical, mental and spiritual health.

Emma is a member of the International Society of Nutrigenetics/ Nutrigenomics (ISSN), Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM) and a regular speaker, presenter and participant at conferences on nutrition, genomics, genetics and epigenetics including at the Wellcome Genome Campus, Cambridge UK.
