Presentation Descriptions

Management of Common Urological Conditions: “All Things Pee & Pelvis” Katie Shaff, ND

The goal of this presentation is to review common urological conditions, discuss both naturopathic and conventional treatment, review appropriate workup, and when to refer to a medical specialist. We will look at recurrent urinary tract infections as well as other forms of cystitis, urinary urgency/frequency, kidney stones, and urological contributors to pelvic pain (male and female).

Prostate Cancer Update:  Assessment, Management & Clinical Pearls, Phranq Tamburri, NMD

This topical and practical lecture is to ensure that our naturopathic profession remains at the absolute forefront of this medical controversy (to biopsy/operate or not to). This is crucial for NDs because our professional advice should be from a thorough understanding of the current evidence and changes - it should not simply be an assumed ideological resistance to surgery. This lecture's goal is to empower the ND with the updates so their patients can make an empowered, educated choice.

Modern Integrative Management of Erectile Dysfunction & Related Hormone Deficiencies, Phranq Tamburri, NMD

Erectile dysfunction is an extremely complex pathology due to two concerns: 1) It affects an expanding patient base of naturally minded Baby Boomer seniors who value quality of life and sexual intimacy higher and longer as a generation. 2) Despite erectile dysfunction being considered a urological disease, it rarely is. This integrative lecture covers the numerous physiological layers (endocrine, cardiovascular, adrenal) coupled with the dominant psychosomatic concerns that often intertwine with this pathology. Special emphasis will be upon the role of testosterone/androgen treatment (hormone dosing, delivery methods, risk factors), NO prescriptions (Viagra,etc.), and research based alternative treatments. Of special note: examples of different penis pumps and injection treatments will be passed around/demoed with time permitting.

Managing Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding, Loren Riccio, ND, LM, CPM   

We will review the normal hormonal changes that influence uterine bleeding and how imbalances can result in abnormal bleeding. Various causes of dysfunctional uterine bleeding will be identified.  Approach to diagnosis and management will be discussed, including lab testing and imaging as indicated. Management will include naturopathic and conventional options. 

Oral Contraceptive Update, Dawn Ipsen, PharmD

We will review basis information concerning pharmaceutical contraceptive options, including the progestin-only pill, combined estrogen and progestin pills, vaginal ring, and patch.  We will discuss special considerations for use and patient specific product selection.  We will also discuss what to do when problems arise (such as spotting) and proper follow-up with patients after initiation of oral contraceptives.

Naturopathic Approaches to Infertility for Women, Jacyln Chasse, ND

With one in eight couples having difficulty conceiving, the rates of infertility now equal that of breast cancer. This is a condition where the naturopathic approach to evaluation and treatment is extremely successful. In this presentation you will learn how to evaluate and treat a woman having trouble conceiving. We will discuss both standard and advanced evaluation tools, as well as a preconception plan and therapies to manage the most common causes of infertility.

Naturopathic Approaches to Infertility for Men, Jacyln Chasse, ND

It takes two to tango!  Although women typically carry the responsibility for managing a couple’s fertility, a man’s fertility is a contributing cause at least half of the time. This presentation will cover how to evaluate a man for fertility and how to treat him for low sperm count, low motility, and poor morphology. We will also discuss how DNA integrity and autoimmunity affect mens’ fertility.

Gastrointestinal Changes in Pregnancy & Management of Associated Common Complaints, Loren Riccio, ND, LM, CPM

There are a variety of physiologic changes to the GI system in pregnancy. Many of these changes result in conditions that are perceived as problematic and lead women to seek care.   We will discuss these physiologic changes and their associated pathology, including treatment and management options.
