2 1 Mentoring the Mentor Stuart White, DC, DACBN, CCN Whole Health Associates 1406 Vermont Houston, Texas 77006 713/522-6336

3 2 Mentor goals: Ò To declare what is possible and establish a commitment to that possibility Ò Address personal and professional barriers limiting the ability to serve Ò Evolution of vision/mission/ethics that drive success Ò Create immediate action steps to apply learning and growth Ò Construct the round table of applied trophologists

4 3 Mentoring the mentor: Ò Who are the mentors? – Practitioners Ò Who are we mentoring? – Patients and GAP Ò Whats the purpose? – Optimized life Ò How does it work? – Whatever you learn you teach someone else (anyone else) Ò Whos is included? – Self selection, you pick yourself

5 4 Mentoring the mentor: Ò Each participant attends monthly teleconferences (1 hour in duration, 4 th Thursday of month) creating a round table discussion/exploration of the dynamics and details of a nutrition-based wholistic practice Ò Each participant chooses a colleague in his/her world to convey the notes and information – no information squandering Ò Issues/problems/questions are considered a learning process for everyone, although individuals remain anonymous Ò All questions, comments, case studies to be directed through email to SP rep who will compile and include in next teleconference ( must be submitted 10 days prior)

6 5 Mentoring - The supreme misfortune that can befall any man is for him to embrace a theory mistaking it for fact. Leonardo da Vinci

7 Surgical Modification of Physiology A Rational Intervention & Discussion of Method Cornerstone issue of Functional Practice

8 Stomach Cancer Survivor Complex issues face people with modified physiology due to surgery and the functional practitioner shines in the approach of optimizing the modified system Practitioner must be prepared to experiment and discover outcome effectiveness while systematically indentifying the limitations and therefore the goals of therapy Most of these patients are abandoned to very general uncustomized approaches that shorten the lifespan and reduce the vitality

9 Stomach Cancer Survivor Male, mid 50s, 75% of stomach removed What are the issues/ what are the goals How far can we go?

10 Sequenced Decline Digestive and gut loss of ecology – most effects protein & minerals Immune compromised system – infection – autoimmunity – chaos – failure from overburdening Organ vulnerability and infection Endocrine dysruption and infection/autoimmunity Spiralling bombardment of core systems B12 dysfunction and resultant events – neuro, hemo, emotional

11 Hypothesis - We are cognizant of the inevitable danger of errors of interpretation that must, by the nature of our method, be inherent in this exposition. We realize that there is scarcely a paragraph in this volume that cannot ne interpreted in many different ways other than that in which we have. Royal Lee, Preface to Protomorphology

12 7 Pillars of Healing Endocrine/Hormonal – Disruption & Depression Glycemic Management – Insulin/Cortisol Dysregulation pH Bioterrain – Net Acid Excess Inflammatory Status – Cumulative Repair Deficit Immune Burden - Toxicity, Infection & Infestation Circulatory Status – Arterial, Venous & Lymphatic Competence Digestive Potency – Fuel absorption, waste removal, Immune modulation

18 17 Symplex F/M(3,3) Hypothalmex/us(1,1) Black Currant Seed(1,1)

19 The expanded HPTA Axis- H G A T P The future

20 19 Endocrine Axis Support Symplex F/M: Pituitrophin PMG Thytrophin PMG Drenatrophin PMG Orchic PMG Hypthalmex: Hypothalamus cytosol extract Hypothalmus: Hypothalamus PMG Black Currant Seed Oil: Omega 6 fatty acids (19 times more Gamma Linoleic Acid) Folic Acid/B12: Folic Acid support and detox support, DNA/RNA transciption

21 20 Endocrine Axis Support Start with general HPTA support for 2-3 months and then target individual glands for further strengthening Symplex F/M typically reduce to maintenance minor sustaining dosage (1- 2/day) Individual gland strengthening: Pineal - Folic Acid (6) Pituitary Anterior – Pituitrophin PMG(6), E-Manganese(6) Posterior – Pituitrophin(6), Trace Minerals/B12(6) ThyroidHypo- Thytrophin PMG(6), Thyroid Complex(4), Prolamine Iodine (1/2/3/4) or other source of iodine, Cataplex E(6) or other source of selenium Hyper - Bugelweed (1-2 tsp), Motherwort (1-2 tsp with heart arrythmias) Thymus - Thymus PMG(6), Immuplex(6) Pancreas- Pancreatrophin (6), Paraplex(6), Cataplex GTF(6) Adrenals- Drenamin(6), Drenatrophin PMG, Whole Dessicated Adrenal (4), Eleuthero (4), Withania (4) Gonads- Wheat germ Oil Fort. (4), Wild Yam Complex (4), Tribulus (4), Fortil B12 (4) Male- Orchic PMG, Super EFF (4), Prost-x (6) Female- Ovex (6), Ovatrophin (6), Dong Quai (4), Utrophin (6)

22 21 Brain chemistry – Neurotransmitters (Neurohormonal) Serotonin – Tryptophan dependent feeds Melatonin formation Well-stocked: Positive, confident, flexible, easy-going Poorly stocked: Negative, obsessive, irritable, low confidence, sleepless Catecholamines – Tyrosine dependent forms Dopamine, Norepinephrine, Adrenaline Well stocked: Energized, upbeat, alert, focused Poorly stocked: Lethargic, flat, blahs GABA – dependent Well stocked: Relaxed, Stress-free Poorly stocked: Uptight, overwhelmed, stressed Endorphins – Phenylalanine dependent Well stocked: Comfort, pleasure, euphoria Poorly stocked: Overly sensitive, crying easily General protein increase will downstream more amino acid fuel for neurotransmitter formation and greater reserve stores for supply through stressful demands (Minchex 2-6, Protefood 2-6)

23 22 Number One Stress in the world The primary way to increase cortisol (stress hormone) is: Blood Sugar Variations inducing hypoglycemia and activating cortisol up-regulation

24 23 The Stress Model The HPTA is at the heart of the bodys ability to respond to the environment Cortisol elevation is the result of Corticotrophin Releasing Hormone (CRH) arising from the parvocellular neurons of the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) - this is the master stress hormone released in response to the perception of stress Stressful stimuli are generalized as: Physical – pain, trauma, infection, hypotension, exercise, hypoglycemia Psychological – bereavement, fear, personal loss, anger (the perception that God is not in control – something is wrong) CRH is released into the portal circulation of the Median Eminence and is carried by venous blood to the corticotroph cells of the anterior pituitary where it binds to the cell surface receptors stimulating the release of Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (ACTH) ACTH reaches the adrenal cortex stimulating the synthesis of Cortisol (glucocorticoid) and also androgenic hormones like androstenidione and DHEA (both may convert to testosterone and DHT in peripheral tissues

25 24 The Stress Model Cortisol maintains blood glucose during stressful fight or flight challenges so that as more metabolic fuel is consumed a critical amount is maintained for brain function and to support the activated survival organs such as the heart, lungs, and skeletal muscle with renewable supply of fuel Cortisol also participates with Aldosterone (mineralocorticoid) in driving sodium reabsorption from the renal tubules conserving electrolytes and water within the vasculature to provide blood and perfusion pressures to vital organs Cortisol concentrations rise until it effects negative feedback on the CRH neurons and the pituitary corticotrophs to return blood levels to normal preventing prolonged elevations of CRH, ACTH and cortisol Chronic stress and maladapted responses to stress alters this mechanism and causes longterm cortisol dysregulation and even cortisol resistance

26 25 Revisiting protomorphology Royal Lee postulates that the growth factors (PMG are part of the mechanism that determines the aging process The factors can be locked in the tissues and he considers that there are elutagens which have the effect of releasing these pmgs into tissue action Progesterone can be considered a elutagen as well as other nutritional elements that reduce the radical oxygen species This begins to suggest why certain people do not respond as keenly to pmg therapy as others Perhaps there is an emerging understanding of the stage that must be set for tropho-restorative activation

27 26 Modulating Cortisol Symplex, Hypothalmex/us – HPA general support Androgen up-regulation Adrenal Complex – 2-4/day licorice & rehmannia Allergen removal Drenamin – 6/day Eleuthero – 2-4/day Vitanox 2-4/day Detoxification Change of thinking Neuro-emotional release

29 28 Revisiting the physiologic possibility 7 pillars of foundation strength and physiological potency (unified mechanisms of disease) Physiologic possibilities have not been explored or metered so we remain dependant on external intervention as the primary modulator of disease process The practice of rational intervention will deliver the practitioner and therefore the patient to profound process that can be measured and will create a new culture for healing in our nation – it is time for change and real survival Essential to the rational is the understanding of the unified mechanisms of disease that will cause the same results every time they are activated or burdened – laws are so much better than opinions
