AFMA Conference Lecture Topic:Becoming Immune to Cancer: Integrative Solutions for Prevention and Survival presented by Dr. Jay Mead, Labrix Co-Founder and Medical Director
There may be as many forms and types of cancer as there are individual people…and for this reason, our one-size-fits-all conventional medical approach leaves ample room for improvement. Immunity, Hormonal Status, Adrenal Resilience, Liver Function, GI function and Sleep quality all play a critical role in staying fit when it comes to battling the cancer cells our bodies routinely produce. This presentation will offer an understanding of the interplay between our many endocrine and metabolic systems. Building upon this foundation, learn how to functionally evaluate each individual in order to assess their unique profile so an individualized programs for “immune hardiness” can be rendered. This presentation will detail integrative medicine strategies for strengthening the immune system and warding off cancer. It will provide tools the Integrative practitioners needs to design successful “anti-cancer” treatment plans including IV nutrients, hormones, nutriceuticals and dietary programs. Return to the Office Monday morning and equip your patients to win their immune battles.

AFMA Conference Lecture Topic:Cravings, Contentment and Chemical Imbalances: Solving the Always Wanting More Syndrome presented by Dr. Erin Lommen, Labrix Co-Founder and CEO
Chemical imbalances are at the heart of cravings and addiction, and hence a major culprit in derailing our patients’ best intentions. Patients may hope to stay on our prescribed programs of; dietary intervention, lifestyle changes to include regular exercise and new routines of meditation and mindfulness. However, often find themselves not entirely in charge of some of choices they make. In fact, many times cravings and behavior patterns ARE truly out of our control since they are dictated by substantive biochemical agents which are far more persuasive than one’s “resolve to do better”. Our minds are wired to seek what the body may need. Our chemistry is programmed to enhance searching and finding of that which feels good (reward seeking) as this was at one time, synonymous with what the body needed, and hence reward based activity in the brain is strongly encouraged. Understandably, many patients find themselves trapped in a vicious cycle of trying-and failing-trying and failing …over and over again. Whether it is sugar, alcohol, binge eating, gambling or other behaviors; no wonder many people feel demoralized and depressed about their potential progress…and very reticent at the thought of trying yet again-another health program.First, the cravings need conquering. Laying a strong foundation through neuroendocrine balancing is essential; Adrenal resilience, Sex Steroid optimization and balancing of the key neurotransmitters; serotonin, dopamine, GABA and norepinephrine. This presentation will provide tools for how to evaluate and interpret lab assessments to get at the root causes of cravings and behaviors. It will also elucidate the most current findings to encourage becoming expert in the employment of natural bio agents which cut cravings off at the pass, set a patient up for success, and provide the roadmap to reaching and sustaining optimal health.
