Northern College of Acupuncture - Unique Nutritional Therapy MSc

Linda and Ann


The Northern College of Acupuncture in York is currently accepting applications for its well established PG Diploma/MSc in Nutritional Therapy starting in October 2011. This unique course is currently the only MSc in nutritional therapy in the country fully accredited by the NTC (Nutritional Therapy Council).

The course is validated by Middlesex University and consists of  two years of part time study in College (for the course starting in 2011 this will be two weekdays a month in term time) to complete the Diploma, and then optionally for the MSc up to two years of autonomous research and writing up of the MSc dissertation, with support from a personal supervisor. On completion of the Diploma our students can register with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), join the British Association of Nutritional Therapists (BANT) and work as a nutritional therapist

On this Masters level course our students learn to use evidence-based nutritional research and apply it directly in practice. The emphasis is on eating for health rather than just taking supplements, and our students develop highly effective and safe skills for clinical practice. The course is highly integrated with clinical practice in our teaching clinic from the outset.

The 'functional medicine' approach taught takes the underlying causes of illness into account, rather than just treating the symptoms, thus further enhancing our students' ability to get to the root cause of patients' problems. We also teach nutritional approaches from different traditional systems of medicine, and run workshops by inspirational leaders in the nutritional therapy field.

The course is open to healthcare practitioners and to people who already have a degree (or equivalent); a foundation course is available in the summer to provide students starting in the October with science basics and clinical skills..

Sweet Cures' New Product Diabetrose™ Utilises Fat-Burning Metabolism

Diabetrose Powder Bottle
 

Diabetrose(tm)', based on Arabinose is the natural substance that helps mammals release glucose from the food we eat in a sustained way. As a natural but 'rare' sugar, we don't get enough of it in the modern diet, because we don't eat the foods - mosses, seaweeds, leaves, raw vegetables and roots that contain L-Arabinose. This leads to an imbalance, with an excess in the modern diet of sugars that rapidly breakdown to glucose. The result is a 'sugar rush' when we eat, and a rapid rise in blood-sugar levels.

Blood-sugar spiking indirectly causes all sorts of problems from obesity to Diabetes Type II, because once the sugar-rush has faded we get hungry again and tend to eat too much. Often the matter is made worse because low blood-sugar makes us want to eat sweet things, which starts that cycle all over again.

When the sugar-rush from eating reaches a particular level, our body realizes we are not going to need the glycogen we already have stored in our liver, and converts that excess glycogen into fat for long-term storage. This is the root cause of obesity. When people claim "It's my metabolism..." they are correct. But breaking the fat storage cycle effectively changes the metabolism.

Since available energy drops and appetite increases as soon as glycogen begins to be stored as fat and blood-glucose levels begin to fall, the process of stabilizing blood-sugar levels allows us to use stored glycogen as energy. When energy is available from stored glycogen, we don't get hungry. The process is simple - when we are less hungry, we eat less. When we use the energy stored as glycogen, we don't store it as fat. Gradually getting blood-sugar levels under control returns the body to a natural balance, especially when combined with a healthy lifestyle.

Diploma Integrative Medicine - British College of Integrative Medicine (BCIM)

The first cohort of students at the British College of Integrative Medicine
The first cohort of students at the British College of Integrative Medicine

The British College of Integrative Medicine (BCIM) was established in 2007 specifically to address the need for professional training and academic study of Integrative Medicine (IM). Its initial cohort of doctors and nurses will graduate in the Study of Integrative Medicine (DipSIM) in March 2012, with the first ever British postgraduate degree qualification in Integrative Medicine.

Dr Sohère Roked (1) a student at the British College of Integrative Medicine defines Integrative Medicine as a "healing-orientated approach that emphasises the patient-practitioner relationship, focusing on the least invasive, least toxic, and least expensive methods, integrating both allopathic and complementary approaches to facilitate health". Dr Roked, who works as a registrar in a busy GP practice in Bridgend, South Wales, will be one of the first to graduate from BCIM, and she says it's already altered her practice for the better.

The full Diploma is a two-year, part-time course, with other flexible study opportunities available (assessed or unassessed) for doctors, nurses and other graduate healthcare professionals who are invited to apply now for the next course, starting October 2011.  

Fellow student Dr Rory McGill full time GP in Plymouth for 17 years, was growing frustrated by the limits of the biomedical model and has now set up his own private practice as an holistic doctor.

Dirty Medicine  The Handbook
by Martin J Walker
Published by Singshot Publications. 2011. Softback. £15; $20; €18. ISBN 978-0956409317.

Cover Dirty Medicine The Handbook

Dirty Medicine  The Handbook is Martin Walker's twenty year follow up to his book Dirty Medicine: Science, big business and the assault on natural health care. In this new book Walker gives a full and detailed picture of the vested interests, their personalities, organisations and ideas that have shaped the present attack on alternatives in the field of health.  Alternatives and complimentary medicine is under attack on all fronts, The Handbook gives us the knowledge with which to defend ourselves and fight back.

History 1985-2008: Attacks and battles between Quackbusters and Natural Medicine Practitioners;
Health Corporatists: Influential Individuals, Organizations, their Profiles and links to Government
Groups, Projects, Committees, Attacks, Media Battles
Websites: Quackbuster and Corporate Science Skeptic
The Antidote: Free Thinkers, Campaigners, Natural Health Champions

Martin Walker names the powerful scientists, politicians and media celebrities who have been involved with the financial support of organizations deliberately tasked with the suppression, defamation and indeed obliteration of complementary and alternative medicine.

Dirty Medicine The Handbook illuminates the details and individuals behind the scandals which form major threads in Martin Walker's book, including the trial of Dr Andrew Wakefield before the General Medical Council, the legal challenges by Dr Simon Singh against the British Chiropractic Association, and the many venomous campaigns against homeopathic medicines. Martin also reveals through his research and political analysis, major media players and organizations and their funding.

Martin Walker describes the Alice through the Looking Glass phenomenon whereby everything you thought went one way was reported to be the opposite way as Truth Reversal - an excellent alternative term to the plain old lie.

Of doctors, epidemiologists, researchers, advisers, insurance scammers, quackbusters, bad journalists, corporate scientists, industry shills and other agents who do now or have in the past worked for, sided with, supported or simply been a part of corporate interests, manufacturing, pushing or promoting, products or ideologies antagonistic to the private and public health of workers, consumers, citizens, patients, alternative practitioners and science in the public interest; who they are, how to recognize them and their organizations, and what to do about them.

Super Snack World's First Vegetable Bar Launches

It sounds too good to be true -  a tasty, savoury snack bar that's made with diced and roasted vegetables for 3 great-tasting flavours, has 99 calories a bar, is 100% natural, gluten and wheat free, suitable for vegetarians and counts as one of your five a day! But it's true as the Veatable Bar hits our shop shelves for the first time...

Ever been hungry mid-morning, but couldn't face another sugary snack from the vending machine or wanted to give the kids a treat that didn't involve crisps or biscuits, but excited them more than a piece of fruit? Well that's exactly why husband and wife team, Howard and Helena, developed Veatable Bars.

At first the couple were just making the bars in their kitchen for themselves and their family as a tasty and healthy alternative to snacks like cereals bars, but soon found people were loving their intriguingly tasty snacks and that they might have something really special on their hands.

The chewy baked snack bars, which have just launched in health stores for the first time, come in three great tasting flavours: Sweet Roasted Vegetable, Tomato Pizza and Thai Sweetcorn. Each counts as one of your five a day, is high in fibre, filling, free from artificial flavours, colourings and preservatives, has 99 calories, is gluten and wheat free and suitable for vegetarians. The chilled bars are a little slice of culinary inspiration in a tasty, savoury snack -  perfect for when you're hungry but trying to be good.

Veatable Bars are totally different to anything else currently available and finally make healthy snacking, for yourself or your family, easy and tasty. If you're looking for a scrumptious way to hit your five-a -day, Veatable Bars are a must.

    How to Avoid Baby Allergies
    According to a study led by Dr Kirsi Laitinen and colleagues of University of Turku, Finland involving a collaboration of five countries: Finland, England, Germany, Hungary and Spain, only 10% of first-time mothers are aware of the link between allergy and the way babies are fed in their first year. Dr Laitinen and her team have surveyed the same mothers when the babies were eight months old; future work will involve assessing this new data. Preliminary results however, indicate that how the baby is actually fed is influenced by the decisions a mother has made about how she intends to feed her baby very early after the baby is born.

    Relief from Restless Leg Syndrome
    It has been reported that orgasm could offer relief for the three million people thought to suffer with the unusual condition of Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) in the UK. This discovery makes sense as it is thought that RLS is caused by sub-optimal dopamine function in the brain. VitalCALM is one of the UK's leading Klamath products and combines specific algae extracts with extracts of grape, ginger and anise to create safe and effective dopamine support. Klamath AFA is a specific kind of algae that grows wild in Klamath Lake in the Rockies. It has been used over the last few decades for its general health and mood boosting benefits, but it has also been seen to help people with RLS.

    Orba Originals Essential Gel Insect Repellent
    Orba Originals Essential Gel Insect Repellent deters biting bugs in a natural effective way. Most repellents contain Deet (N, N-diethyl-meta-toluamide) which does not kill insects; instead it prevents biting insects like mosquitoes and ticks from zeroing in on your skin. Deet however, is not a natural ingredient and can cause sensitivity and allergic reactions. Orba Originals Gel Insect Repellent, is a powerful, effective, deet-free alternative to common insect repellents, containing no harmful chemicals yet providing solid protection from mosquitoes and other biting insects. It is also suitable for use on children and babies and is approved by the Vegetarian Society.

    Easy Pipe Dry Salt Inhaler Allergy Relief
    Cisca has just launched the Easy Pipe, an all natural dry salt inhaler that helps beat allergy symptoms using age old salt therapy, which uses dry aerosol micro-particles. Since the 19th Century people have visited naturally occurring salt caves and salt mines to reap the benefits, today, the Cisca Easy Saltpipe allows you to experience this effective natural therapy for yourself as and when you need it. The moisture of the moving air absorbs the microscopic particles of salt allowing it to penetrate the entire respiratory tract. It works by drawing excess fluid from the sinuses and cell lining, cleansing the nasal passages and opening the airways to relieve the main cause of congestion and irritation. Ideal for hay fever sufferers and people with other allergies.

    Pritikin Program Approved by Medicare in Landmark Decision
    In a groundbreaking decision, Medicare will pay for Pritikin's intensive diet-and-exercise programs for qualifying individuals with a history or risk of cardiovascular events, the Centers from Medicare and Medicaid Services has disclosed. The decision makes the Pritikin longevity Center and Spa, located in Miami, the first and only residential healthy-lifestyle education program in the USA to offer Medicare-covered intensive cardiac rehabilitation (ICR). The criteria for coverage of an intensive cardiac rehabilitation program by Medicare are stringent, including such requirements as peer-reviewed, published research demonstrating that the program reduces the need for bypass surgery as well as significantly lowers cholesterol levels, triglycerides, body mass index and blood pressure, and the need for medications for cholesterol, blood pressure and diabetes.
