INTEGRATIVE PHYSIOLOGY. Understanding Endobiogenic Medicine
Time & Location
About The Event
An Introductory training programme:
8 Seminars by Paul Michael BA, BSC, MCPP
Endobiogenic Medicine is a system of medicine which looks at the internal environment of the body (terrain) in order to understand the mechanisms behind disease. It centres around the role of the endocrine and autonomic nervous systems and their effects. The endocrine system is seen as the true manager of the body as it is the only system that manages itself and every other system.
Slowly, an overweight and shy patient walks into your clinic. Slightly hunched over, and with a limp handshake, this 22 year old suffers from asthma which has an allergic component and is worse in the evenings. A history of eczema dates back to childhood and is a source of great frustration to the patient. The patient goes to bed at 2 am each day, is tired in the mornings and has chronic IBS with daily bowel spasm, as well as a daily craving for sweet foods and bread. The patient is embarrassed by the chronic damp and sweaty hands that persist. There are also repeated respiratory infections.
From an Integrated Physiology perspective and from an Endobiogenic understanding, these symptoms are linked. From the whole story and from the signs and symptoms we gradually build a picture of what is really happening. At the level of the autonomic nervous system we can see that many signs and symptoms fit a patient whose terrain is in favour of a high parasympathetic state. Parasympathetic is an anabolic state, hence weight gain. The fact that the patient is shy, hunched over, walking slowly and has a limp handshake and damp hands are all signs of parasympathetic dominance. Asthma and eczema are states of autonomic dysregulation and the fact that the asthma is worse at night is not a coincidence. It is because parasympathetic activity is higher at night. This patient has a spasmophilic terrain linked to the autonomic imbalance hence the bowel spasm and asthmatic symptoms. The allergic state with the high histamine is significant, as the histamine prolongs the state of autonomic dysregulation and implies that there is an adrenal insufficiency. There is not enough cortisol to counter the histamine. This now gives us a clear picture of what we must do to devise a thorough and effective treatment plan. We have now connected all the dots and do not have to treat one symptom.
Dates: 20th Jan, 3rd Feb, 17nd March, 14th April 2019
Understanding the Autonomic Nervous System and its role in the disease process; an endobiogenic perspective.
Seminar 1: Understanding the Autonomic Nervous System (Para, Alpha and Beta sympathetic). We will look specifically at the different divisions of the autonomic nervous system and their role in the disease process.
Seminar 2: Drainage of the emunctories. We will look at the mechanisms behind congestion.
Seminar 3: Case studies and endobiogenic plant medicines. We will look at the plant medicines used, their different forms, their specific actions on the autonomic nervous system and their role in drainage of the emunctories.
Seminar 4: Clinical examination and functional biology markers (endobiogenic blood test markers).
Dates: 12th May, 9th June, 23rdJune, 30th June 2019
Understanding the Endocrine System and its role in the disease process; an endobiogenic perspective.
Seminar 5: Understanding the specific role of hormones and their vertical axis - Part 1. We will be looking at the role of specific hormones on a cellular level and their specific role in the disease process.
Seminar 6: Understanding the specific role of hormones and their vertical axis - Part 2. In order for students to be clear and before the horizontal pathways can be understood; firstly, the vertical pathways and the global effects of these hormones in an endobiogenic concept must be explained. This will really help you understand the system in a simpler way.
Seminar 7: Case studies and endobiogenic plant medicines.
Seminar 8: Clinical examination and functional biology markers (endobiogenic blood test markers).
All Seminars will be held on Sundays from 11 am to 2 pm at Middlesex University Hendon. This programme is open to students and practitioners. Medical doctors, midwives, nurses, nutritionists, osteopaths, homeopaths, are all welcome.
