Main Presentation: Autoimmune Disease by Dr. Tom O’Bryan

Autoimmune diseases are a primary cause of morbidity and mortality in the industrialized world.  The number of people diagnosed with an autoimmune disease is increasing exponentially in our country.  .

Without recognizing and addressing the underlying mechanisms triggering the presenting complaints, the Practitioner may be proverbially ‘chasing the tail’ of the pathology with temporary symptom relief.

 This Presentation will outline the Trilogy in the development of autoimmune disease and its musculoskeletal/neurological presentations with a deep emphasis on testing and treatment protocols that have consistently demonstrated dramatic results.

Short Presentation: Homeopathy for Depression and Anxiety by Rina Valia CCH, LCEH and Selora Albin, CCH

Homeopathy is a gentle and safe way of healing which aims to stimulate the body’s natural response. In homeopathy, a key premise is that every person has energy called a Vital Force or Self-Healing Response. When this energy is disturbed, health problems develop.  Homeopathy views disease holistically. A person’s illness is intimately linked to the individual and their life. To effect healing you must treat the person as a whole. Physical, emotional and mental symptoms are given equal importance. The whole person must be affected to be cured.   Homeopathic remedies are tailored to the individual and their exact symptoms. The effectiveness of a remedy depends upon how accurately it matches the illness totality. The homeopath must be systematic and accurate.   What many people say about homeopathic treatment is that in addition to their physical complaints healing, they also experience increased levels of energy, and more emotional freedom and happiness.
