Trauma Informed Care: Beyond the Scope of AI

Presented by: Lana Ferris, ND

While AI is a quickly growing field, it is hard to imagine that AI will be capable of the emotional intelligence needed to provide trauma informed medical care. This presentation will explore how to recognize PTSD and complex trauma symptoms, how to talk about trauma with patients, treatment options for PTSD and trauma, and how to develop a strong doctor/patient relationship by providing trauma informed care. We will also discuss polyvagal theory, how trauma disrupts nervous system regulation, and how to help our patients co-regulate.

Pharmacogenomics: Where Does the Rubber Really Meet the Road?

Presented by: Leah K. Hollon, ND, MPH

Intergenerational and transgenerational trauma is defined as trauma that is transferred from trauma survivors to subsequent generations through complex post-traumatic stress disorder mechanisms. But what are the mechanisms of this transference and what instruments of healing are available for future generations? Within naturopathic medicine we recognize the emotional and physical traumas that imprint within a family unit through miasmatic transference. Knowledge of homeopathy, plant medicine, counseling, as well as spiritual medicine provides a unique path of healing for families of trauma. This session will explore the biomechanics of transgenerational trauma including epigenetics and more importantly discuss therapies that shift the imprints of disease.

Repetitive overuse can lead to chronic osteoarthritis and musculoskeletal joint pain which can significantly impair a person’s ability to perform basic activities, work, or participate in sports. This talk will provide the Naturopathic Doctor with clinical pearls for prescribing and dosing naturopathic protocols for both acute sports injuries and chronic osteoarthritis.
