“Is It All In The Brain?!” Integrating Brain Retraining “Neuroplasticity” Approaches into Your Practice for Improved Patients Outcomes

Recently, brain retraining, neuroplasticity and so called “limbic retraining” has become a hot topic in medicine, with many health practitioners already incorporating these protocols for better outcomes.

Find out about these latest cutting-edge interventions from the pioneers in the field, and how it can be incorporated into your health practice, improving the lives of your patients.

Many chronic illnesses such as Long Covid, ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia, Mold, Lyme, POTS, and more can be challenging to treat, with relapses common and long-term solutions sometimes being elusive. This opens up the search for more effective complementary treatments. Grounded in scientific evidence and recent RCTs, the Gupta Program has earned endorsements from a diverse range of health professionals, including functional and integrative doctors, naturopaths and nutritionists.

They have recently published a randomized controlled study showing their program is four times more effective at reducing fatigue in Long Covid than a standard wellness program (wellness program included diet, supplements, sleep advice and exercise). You can read the study here: https://www.hindawi.com/journals/ecam/2023/7068326/ and a summary of all of our research here on Long Covid, ME/CFS & Fibromyalgia: https://www.guptaprogram.com/research

By the end of this webinar, you will

    Functional Medicine Founder and Pioneer

    Dr. Jeffrey Bland is a personable and highly respected thought leader who has spent more than four decades focused on the improvement of human health.

    He is known worldwide as the founder of the Functional Medicine movement, which represents his vision for a care model that is grounded in systems biology and informed by research that he has a unique ability to synthesize. His pioneering work has created the Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Institute (PLMI), as well as the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), the global leader in Functional Medicine education. Since 1991, hundreds of thousands of healthcare practitioners have participated in PLMI and IFM programs, and this collective knowledge has positively impacted the lives of patients all over the world.

    Dr. Bland began his career as a Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Puget Sound. He is a natural educator and became involved with numerous academic institutions during the years he spent teaching. This includes the significant contributions he made to the founding and accreditation of Bastyr University, the first federally accredited university offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in natural medicine in the US. In the early 1980s, Dr. Bland was hand-selected by two-time Nobel Laureate Dr. Linus Pauling to serve as Director of Nutritional Research at the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine. This experience marked both a personal and professional inflection point for Dr. Bland that has become an integral part of his career.

    As an expert in a field he helped to establish—science-based nutrition—Dr. Bland has become an iconic figure in the natural products industry. He worked alongside other founders to establish standards for evidence-based formulations, quality ingredient sourcing, and ethical manufacturing practices that stand to this day. He continues to serve as a dynamic mentor and advisor to a new generation of industry leaders.

    Dr. Bland is the author of best-selling books and over 120 peer-reviewed research publications. He speaks extensively, and his engaging style makes him popular with both professional and consumer audiences. Dr. Bland’s latest project is Big Bold Health, launched in 2018. He’s on a mission to transform the way people think about one of nature’s greatest innovations: the immune system. Through Big Bold Health, Dr. Bland is advocating for the power of immuno-rejuvenation to enhance immunity at a global level. It is an ambitious and purpose-driven effort that encompasses his active stance on regenerative agriculture, environmental stewardship, and planetary health.

    Ashok is an internationally renowned Speaker, Filmmaker & Health Practitioner who has dedicated his life to supporting people through chronic illness, and achieving their potential.
    Ashok suffered from ME, or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, around 25 years ago when he was studying at Cambridge University. Through neurological research that he conducted, he managed to get himself 100% better. He then set up a clinic to treat others, and was the first to then publish the well-known neuroplasticity “limbic retraining” recovery program and app known as the Gupta Program in 2007.
    He has published several medical papers including randomized controlled trials on Long Covid, ME/CFS, & Fibromyalgia, showing that the treatment is effective, and is continually researching these conditions. You can find out more information at www.guptaprogram.com
