New Zealand Teleseminar – Diabetes

Seminar flyer Diabetes October 2014Next Tuesday 21st October I’ll be conducting a teleseminar on diabetes, for New Zealand herbalists and naturopaths. Hosted by the New Zealand company Phytomed, the title is “Diabetes – Herbal Support for Better Outcomes”. 

A major focus of my presentation will be how stress physiology plays a significant role in blood sugar regulation, and how – with the correct choice of specific herbal medicines – you can attenuate the hyperglycaemic response and improve long term glycaemic balance. In addition I’ll be discussing the pathophysiology of chronic diabetic complications, and how certain herbal medicines can reduce the risk and severity of these complications. I’ll also be giving clinical examples of how progress can be effectively monitored, and present a classic case study from my own clinical practice.

If you are a New Zealand herbalist or naturopath, I look forward to speaking with you next Tuesday evening.

    Hi Ian
    I am a second year Naturopatic studen at the SPCNM in Auckland NZ. I have a specific interest in diabetes both Type 1 & Type II and herbal/diet/stress implications of these diseases and how to achieve the best clinical outcomes for these subsets. Do you have a copy of this Seminar that I would be able to view, or any other information that you think may be relevant to my interest? Thank you for your time, I am incredibly grateful for whatever information or direction you could point me in.
    Kind regards

      Hi Tonia. Firstly congratulations for making it through first year! It's great that you are developing specific clinical areas of interest.

      For a copy of this seminar, I'd suggest contacting PhytoMed in New Zealand directly - even though it was a few years ago I'm assuming they will have copies available.
