We are very excited to announce our Upcoming CEU Seminar
“Treatment Protocols for Various Pain Syndromes in the Spine and Extremities” (Level II)
Saturday, August 13, 2016 – 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (8 CEU’s)

Come and learn an “increased level” of treatment protocols for the most common pain syndrome conditions of the spine, upper and lower extremities.

New case studies will be presented with an increased level of awareness.  Learn the latest level of orthopedic testing, what to expect in their findings, and how to identify the correct evaluation codes.  This information will lead you to the best treatment plan and goals for your patient’s care.  With the increased emphasis insurance companies are placing on the terminology regarding “medical necessity,” this seminar will both help you get your patient better and help you get paid.

This seminar will utilize Dr. Carlos Boileve’s DC, DN unique manual, the 102-page “Orthopedic Tests & Signs with ICD-10 Coding Guidance.”  There is no other published manual of this kind that is utilizing ICD-10 to achieve what insurance companies are asking for in regards to “medical necessity” in the treatment protocols of pain syndromes in the spine and extremities.

Opportunity

The cost to attend this CEU Seminar is VERY REASONABLY priced at $149.00… REQUIRED MANUAL INCLUDED! ($149.00 preregistration; $169.00 at-the-door)  Already have the manual?  Sign up for this seminar and you will receive a $50.00 credit toward the registration fee – attend for only $99.00 when you bring your own manual ($119.00 at-the-door).  8 quality CEU’s with a 102-page ICD-10 manual you can use in your practice immediately and effectively for a long time to come is a fantastic deal.  We are looking forward to a vibrant seminar sharing information that will benefit both your patients and your success in practice.
 
After August 13th, Orthopedic Tests & Signs with ICD-10 Coding Guidance will go back to its regular price of $129.00.

Is your practice not at the level you want it to be? Do you find using nutrition in your office overwhelming? So much so that very often you will let other doctors handle it?

Functional medicine nutritional counseling addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of nutritional medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine nutritional counseling addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.

The seminar will also cover which tests are most significant and most often used in functional medicine nutritional counseling, and how the texts it will change outcomes with your patients. Tests covered will include:

  • Micronutrient

About the instructor:

Rajko Bisevac ND, ABAAHP, FAARFM

Rajko Bisevac ND, ABAAHP, FAARFM

Dr. Ray Bisevac, current student in the NCNM doctoral program,  lays claim to a family background rooted in what he calls “centuries of healing tradition.”  He was born in a family of traditional Naturopaths and was trained in this healing tradition since early childhood. For the first 16 years of his life he was spending 4 months each year in a remote village in former Yugoslavia, in complete wilderness, far from any signs of modern civilization, where he was taught how to survive and thrive in challenging conditions. In those conditions there was no access to modern medicine, and the knowledge of natural healing method was the only way to survive.

In addition to nutrition, natural healing and biochemistry, his wide-ranging educational background includes Psychology, Philosophy, Theology, Journalism, Music, Track-and-Field Sport Sciences, and notably, Andragogy, the art of teaching adults.

His approach to natural living and healing is best described as “Balancing Body Chemistry.” As Ray describes it, “Balancing Body Chemistry” is the safest and most natural way to enjoy good health.  There are many reasons why we don’t have enough of what our bodies need.  The levels of vitamins, minerals, hormones, enzymes and other essential components are depleted.  An imbalance caused by stress, connective tissue disorders leading to neck, back and joint pain, processed foods, a stagnant diet and other lifestyle extremes.

Ray has also been actively involved in the sport of track and field for 32 years, bringing a unique perspective as both an athlete and coach.  He blends core elements of Eastern European sports sciences with his own refinements. 

More than 1,000 doctors in the various healing arts and other healthcare practitioners in the Chicagoland area rely on Ray’s counsel on health matters relating to building and maintaining balanced lifestyles.

Dr. Bisevac has obtained Board Certification with American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, the oldest and most prominent international organization certifying doctors in integrative and functional medicine.

This exciting, newly-developed seminar will be highly valuable to all health-care practitioners and other professionals.  Perhaps you’ve taken anatomy courses, but without the benefit of a cadaver lab.  Perhaps you’ve had a cadaver lab, but it was several years ago and you’d like a refresher course.  You will not only receive instruction, but also hands-on experience.  Through an arrangement with the U of I at Chicago, we are pleased and excited to offer this special seminar at UIC’s East Campus State-of-the-art “wet” and “dry” cadaver anatomy laboratories.  This will be a hands-on cadaver class revisiting material from the NCNM’s Anatomy I, II, and III.  This lab is also used in the Anatomy III course in the NCNM’s doctoral program.

*This seminar was previously advertised with lunch included in the registration price.  Unfortunately, we have recently learned that the UIC cafeteria will not be open the day of the seminar and we will be unable to offer lunch to attendees.  There are many fast-food and casual dining options one block west on Taylor St. and one block South on Halsted.  You are of course also welcome to bring your own lunch.

Two unique cutting edge CEU seminars on nutrition that you don’t want to miss.

Drug, Herbal & Nutrient Relationships:
A two-part CEU Seminar

Presented by Dr. Shante Griggs, PharmD, RPh, DN Candidate

Herbs in MortarIn today’s drug and nutritional environment it has become very challenging for practitioners and therapists to recognize and recommend the correct herbs, vitamins or minerals when a patient or client is on prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) drugs.  Gone is the old popular saying when recommending nutrients, “Oh, it’s all natural.  I don’t know how much it’s going to help you but I know it’s not going to hurt you.”  The reality is, this is not true.  Without knowing indications and contraindications as nutrients relate to drugs, you can cause some serious harm to your patients and clients.Dr. Grigg’s experience as a pharmacist and student of Naprapathic Medicine has shown her what can happen when recommending herbs, vitamins and minerals without the awareness or knowledge of the effects of prescription or OTC drugs that the patient or client is taking.  She has developed this two-part CEU seminar to address these complex issues.  She has also developed a two-part manual detailing various diagnoses and the interactions of prescription and OTC drugs with herbs, vitamins and minerals.By attending these CEU seminars and the applying the manuals that you are given, you will be a lot more effective in recommending herbs, vitamins and minerals to your patients and clients.

Day 1 – Saturday, August 23, 2014, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

A Focus on Cardiovascular Disorders and Nervous System Disorders

Vegetable capsuleThe program will include:

  1. Evidence-based drug/herbal interactions
  2. Drug/nutrient interactions
  3. Drug-induced nutrient depletion

Abstract:There are a number of ways that pharmaceuticals can affect the body and impact patient/client outcomes when on drug therapy.  Drugs can interact with other drugs, herbs and nutrients. Drugs can affect several biochemical processes and the status of nutrients in the body.  Nutrients can be affected by inhibition of absorption, synthesis, transport in the body, storage, metabolism and excretion.

Goals for day 1:

  1. To assist practitioners and therapists in understanding the relationships with drugs, herbal supplements and vitamins and minerals in the management of common disease states and common pain conditions.
  2. After participating in this seminar, practitioners and therapists will be able to identify the relationship type between certain drugs, herbs and nutrients and discuss nutritional and non-pharmacologic treatment options for patients and clients with co-morbidities.

Day 2 – Saturday, September 20, 2014, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

A CEU Seminar Focusing on Immune System Disorders

Pills and HerbsGoals:

  1. Incorporating holistic detoxification procedures to positively affect the immune system
  2. Developing procedures for green living to positively affect the immune system
  3. Evidence-based herbal /drug interactions on the immune system
  4. Evidence-based nutrient/drug interactions on the immune system
  5. Evidence-based drug/nutrient depletion that could negatively affect the immune system

Abstract:

Immune systemImmune system disorders are very common.  These disorders can cause low activity (immunodeficiency) or overactivity (auto-immunity) of the immune system.  The immune system does not constitute a “system” in the sense of anatomically connected organs like the G.I. system or the urinary system. It is a diverse collection of cells found both in blood and lymph and tissues throughout the body. Disorders affecting immunity are equally diverse and broad. These disorders may originate from internal factors as well as external factors.After the completion these seminars, you will have herbal, vitamin, mineral and drug therapy knowledge and necessary skills to be a lot more affective with your patients and clients.

When deciding whether or not to attend these seminars, please consider the following:  “Food, herbs and drugs are a part of this world and at times may be used together inappropriately. It is our duty as health care providers to ensure that they co-exist safely and effectively with our patients and clients.”– Dr. Shante Griggs

Neurofeedback/EEG Biofeedback
A great avant guarde modality to increase your effectiveness with your patients and clients
Saturday, December 7, 2013 – 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (6 CEU hours)
ashley_ellis2

Dr. Ashley Ellis, DN

Emerging in the last 60 years with great momentum and tremendous results is the “Fountain of Youth for the Mind,” Neurofeedback.

Neurofeedback, also termed EEG Biofeedback, is a non-invasive medium to help a wide variety of conditions such as migraines, ADD/ADHD, stress/anxiety, addictions, traumatic brain injuries, memory, depression, fibromyalgia and other physical ailments. There are different regions of the brain that correlate with these processes and there are ways in which you can inhibit or encourage the areas that are applicable. Neurofeedback is rapidly evolving within the healthcare field for a wide age spectrum as young as 4 years old, with the ability to heal and prolong a better quality of life.

Neurofeedback is the Missing Link in healthcare today. A very valuable tool that may lead to answers and explanations of why some symptoms may not be resolved with other traditional styles of treatment. EEG biofeedback allows access to the mind and the billions of neuroconnections that lie within, the source of many conditions. Neuro-bio feedback allows healing to occur inside and out, both physically and physiologically, treating the whole condition; the whole body.

Instructor:

Dr. Ashley Ellis, D.N., completed her EEG biofeedback coursework through the New Mind Academy, and is soon to be nationally certified by the BCIA. She has studied very closely with Dr. Kathy Abbott, a psychologist and International Society and Neurofeedback Research board member, using different forms including: Sygnet, Discovery and LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System). She has surpassed all the clinical requirements for the certification from Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) for EEG biofeedback. As a doctor of Naprapathic Medicine utilizing naprapathic manual medicine, nutritional counseling and now the addition of neuro-bio feedback, Dr. Ellis has increased positive results with her patients dramatically. Dr. Ellis is in private practice and serves on the academic and clinic faculty of the National College of Naprapathic Medicine.

Body-Based Counseling

Body-based counseling is a very powerful, ground-breaking, and innovative system of health care addressing how the mind interacts with the body and how the body interacts with the mind. Dr. Hazell is one of the pioneers in this area, focusing on how mental and emotional stress and trauma can affect the physical body and in turn the physical body can affect the emotions and the mind. He works with counselors, social workers, manual medicine practitioners and dietitians/nutritionists to help them recognize this phenomenon and incorporate this knowledge into their treatment, dramatically increasing results; leading to profound, dramatic and positive experiences for clients/patients as well as the counselor, social worker, manual medicine practitioner and dietitian/nutritionist.
