Webinar NEI-X Part2.

About the event

For the first time in the Maritimes, Pascal Grolaux, DO, BSc, MOst. will offer the original, evidence-based and most comprehensive  course, so far proposed in Canada and in Europe, on the Integrative Approach Targeting the Vagus Nerve and the Neuroendocrine-immune System (NEIS).

OBJECTIVES

This course will give an overview of general principles of neurophysiology, neuroanatomy of the central and autonomic nervous system, neuro-endocrine-immunology, general principles of inflammation and diseases, the brain-gut and brain-heart axis connection.

At the end of the course “Integrative Approach Targeting the Vagus Nerve and the Neuroendocrine-immune System (NEIS). Part 1”, the participant will be able to:

  • Understand the global function of the Autonomic Nervous System with emphasis on the Vagus nerve.
  • Understand the link between the vagus nerve and its relations to the neuroendocrine-immune system
  • Understand the principles of inflammation linked to neuroendocrine-immunology
  • Understand the role of the central autonomic network (CAN) and the brain structures and functions linked to it
  • Understand the importance of the Brain-GUT and Brain-Heart axis

At the end of the course "“Integrative Approach Targeting the Vagus Nerve and the Neuroendocrine-immune System (NEIS). Part 2”, the partiipant will be able to:

  • Understand the essentials relationships with cranial nerve V, VII, IX and the Vagus nerve
  • Understand the Blood-Brain-Barrier related to immunology
  • Understand the role of the Glia in immune responses
  • Understand the importance of the Gateway relfexes in immunology
  • Understand the role of the key neurohormones in immunology
  • Understand the principles of Heart Rate Variability Analysis based on a 3-lead EKG

This hybrid course is divided in 3 disctinctive parts.

Who Should Attend This Course

This course is designed for Osteopaths, Osteopathic students, Physiotherapists, Naturopaths, med. Doctors, other Health Practitioners (if you are not sure this course is for you, please contact us)

  • Part 1 and Part 2 are webinars (theory only) for all participants.
