This course is all about using Micronutrients to Support the Body’s Stress Response. Dr. Cory Ambrose will discuss well-researched phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, and probiotics to help prevent the physiologic changes associated with psychological stress. We will also explore the connection between the gut microbiome and the stress response, and ways to support the gut-brain axis.

Cory will also explore the importance of supporting nutritional status, lifestyle choices, gut microbial composition, and other factors related to neuroendocrine health. In addition, he will discuss key prevention strategies of the downstream effects of stress, including in cardiovascular and cognitive health. This is one not to miss.


During this live webinar, Dr. Cory Ambrose, ND, MAT will discuss key elements of research methods and help you assess the validity and applicability of research with maximal efficiency. We will highlight and review research methods and other dimensions to help you quickly assess the validity of research design. We will also discuss the potential drawbacks to certain types of study design and their downstream effects. This talk aims to help you read beyond the abstract with confidence and apply it to your clinical practice.


Humans are by nature fearful and anxious creatures and our brains are designed to search for threats, focus on them, and overestimate and remember them. We need to rewire the brain to resist these tendencies, by using interventions that have been shown to calm the amygdala and to teach the amygdala and cortex new responses to threat.

We know more about the neurological, physical, emotional, and cognitive processes underlying fear and anxiety and panic than about other emotions. As a result, we know more about the neurological processes underlying anxiety-based disorders than any other disorders. Dr. Pittman provides clear and understandable descriptions of how the amygdala and cortex each influence the production of fear and anxiety.

We should be using this information to make changes in the amygdala and cortex. The interventions presented in this course have empirical evidence demonstrating that they impact the brain and provide effective treatment of anxiety disorders.

This is a neurologically informed approach to CBT for effective treatment of anxiety that is accessible to clients of all educational levels. Interventions that target both the amygdala and the cortex for change are presented in a way designed to promote client motivation and engagement in treatment.


Are you noticing that your patients are becoming more complex, with more and varied symptoms? Many clinicians are noticing this and Amina Eastham specialises in these complex chronic patients. She receives many referrals from practitioners that have not been able to make much progress with their patients that are presenting with many or unusual symptoms that are difficult to interpret.

Amina has developed a brilliant systematic approach to these patients that clarifies where the key problems lie and how to uncover the foundation causes. She has great success where others have struggled.

In this thorough, live, five-part series she shares with you her intake, assessment and care planning strategies. She will also be giving you her unique and highly valuable mind map/jigsaw technique that she uses to create a clear image of her patient’s cases.

You will find this presentation to be full of highly-useful insights and find out how Amina structures her patient care and comes up with reliable patient strategies in the very difficult, complex patients that she sees. Join us live if you have questions you would like to put to Amina.


In this course Dr Dansiger delves into the multifaceted nature of burnout within the healthcare profession. He will speak on the confluence of factors exacerbating burnout, such as increased workloads and the pervasive global trauma stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. You will gain a deeper understanding of the challenges clinicians face in maintaining your well-being.

A central theme explored in this class is the interplay between vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, and burnout. By elucidating how these elements intersect and contribute to the deterioration of clinicians' mental and emotional resilience you will come to recognise the intricate dynamics at play within the healthcare environment.

A transformative aspect of the presentation is the introduction of the "Clinical Dharma" framework for self-care, inspired by the teachings of Buddha. This framework emphasises mindfulness, compassion, and self-awareness. Clinical Dharma offers clinicians practical strategies to cultivate resilience and mitigate burnout.

Through insightful discussions and actionable insights this presentation will inspire you to embrace a holistic approach to well-being, fostering a culture of support and resilience both individually and within the greater healthcare community.


This course seamlessly merges ancient mindfulness techniques with trauma-focused principles from EMDR therapy and other trauma theory and practice. It's tailored for the wide diversity of practitioners seeking to address patient anger. We delve into the integration of mindfulness practices for both personal and patient-focused anger management. Explore the intricate link between unresolved trauma and anger while uncovering strategies to cultivate self-awareness and emotional regulation, both personally and in patients. 

This course serves as an invitation for naturopathic practitioners to embark on a dual journey towards personal growth and guiding their patients towards emotional well-being through the synergy of ancient wisdom and modern therapeutic modalities. Through a blend of theory and experiential learning, you will navigate the convergence of mindfulness and trauma-informed care. Drawing from centuries-old mindfulness traditions and the innovative methodologies of mindfulness based EMDR therapy, you will gain insights into the complexities of anger and its roots in past trauma. By embracing mindfulness as a tool for self-discovery and integrating trauma-focused approaches, you can not only guide your patients but also embark on your own transformative journey towards managing anger.

By the end of this presentation, you will emerge equipped with a new approach to addressing patient anger rooted in personal mindfulness practices and trauma-informed care. Empowered with practical strategies and a deeper understanding of your own emotional landscapes, you will be better prepared to support your patients in navigating their anger with resilience and empathy.
