Mechanistic Insights and Diverse Clinical Applications using Functional Herbal Therapy (FHT). Our microcirculation is the vast and complex network of tiny blood vessels (small arteries, arterioles, capillaries, venules, and small veins) that ensures the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to all our tissues according to their need. A robust microcirculatory flow depends on the quality of the blood and the health of the endothelium, which supplies endocrine and local mediators to regulate organ perfusion. Cardiac, vascular, renal, hepatic, metabolic, sensory, and even neuropsychiatric conditions have all been linked to microvascular dysfunction. Evidence is even accumulating that the earliest manifestations of cardiovascular disease occur at the microcirculation level. Hence it is not surprising that therapies aiming to maintain or restore microcirculation are receiving increasing attention. In this two-part presentation, Kerry Bone outlines the supporting evidence and clinical ramifications of the core FHT strategy of supporting and enhancing microcirculatory and endothelial health. This powerful clinical paradigm can deliver surprising results, even in problematical cases. His focus will be on recent publications and new clinical insights. In Part 1, Kerry summarises our current understanding of the role of microcirculation in health and disease. New research pointing to its critical role as a therapeutic target in eye, brain, heart, and muscle health is reviewed. Factors that damage our microcirculation will also be flagged. The hypothesis that microvascular dysfunction might even be a systemic disorder, with common biomarkers found in the heart, brain, kidneys, and elsewhere will be explored. Next in Part 2, Kerry examines how this key treatment strategy can be successfully applied to modern herbal practice, underpinned by the clinical evidence for important herbal and dietary agents including: * Ginger * Turmeric/curcumin * Grape Seed * Gotu Kola * Green Tea * Resveratrol * Berries * Nitrate from dietary sources * Garlic * Cocoa * Ginkgo This event is recognised for 2 contact learning hours. Access includes a CPE certificate, exclusive MediHerb product specials and post-event recordings. Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been rescheduled from Sunday 15 May to Sunday 26 June.
