Neurotransmitter Hologram, Burnout & Leaky Gut

Date: 15/09/18–21/09/18    Location: Hong Kong

Neurotransmitter Hologram

This advanced level course explores the various aspects of neurotransmission from the production of neurochemicals in the cell through gene expression to the generation and transmission of signals throughout the body. All neurotransmitters, their receptors and their specific functions and various targets in the nervous system, muscles and glands are discussed.

Neurotransmitters play a crucial role in the smooth running of all our daily activities and as such are deeply involved in the emergence and progression of health issues. This course aims to assist students in developing a thorough understanding of the neurochemical pathways leading to disease and to provide them with specialised balances for specific health conditions.   

This workshop provides students with:

  • Detailed descriptions of 46 neurotransmitters along with their functions, target cells, specific receptors and modes of interactions;
  • Overview of consequences and health risks associated with excess or deficiency of neurotransmitters and their possible causes;
  • Balancing techniques for each neurotransmitter;
  • A database of health issues and their associated neurochemical pathways;
  • Innovative approaches adapted to specific conditions such as stress, aversion, OCD, addiction, chronic fatigue, sleep disorders, ADHD, panic, depression, anger and violent tendencies, social bon­ding, sexual dysfunctions, hunger and appetite control issues.

The symptoms of adrenal fatigue, ‘burnout’ and PTSD are hugely prevalent in today’s fast paced world. These conditions relate to the third stage of stress or the exhaustion phase. Hugo has developed a working model of burnout that includes the unmyelinated vagus nerve of Porges polyvagal theory and the effects of reverse T3. In this course you will learn the following:

  • Physiological models for the 4 stress states
  • Anatomy of the unmyelinated vagus nerve
  • Neurochemistry of the unmyelinated vagus nerve
  • Effects of reverse T3 in the body
  • Model for the mechanism of low cortisol levels in burnout and PTSD
  • NK acupressure formatting for the burn out pathways
  • What issues your clients could present with
  • Changes to lifestyle and diet
  • Different supplements that could help your burnout clients

Leaky Gut

Increased intestinal permeability or ‘leaky gut syndrome’ as it is often referred to, is a major driver of chronic disease and can cause a multitude of physiological imbalances within the body. It is characterised by the weakening of the tight junctions between the epithelial cells. Hugo has put together a comprehensive list of causes that can contribute to leaky gut. In this course you will learn:

  • Tight junction proteins that keep the intestinal epithelial cells together
  • The mechanism of the wheat protein gliadin to stimulate gut permeability in everyone
  • The function of zonulin
  • The contributions of immune cells to gut permeability including allergic reactions
  • Hormones that contribute to gut permeability (Histamine, Interferon γ and Tumour Necrosis Factor α)
  • Helpful and harmful bacteria
  • Parasites
  • Fungus
  • NK acupressure formatting for the Leaky Gut pathways
  • What issues your clients could present with
  • Changes to lifestyle and diet
  • Different supplements that could help your Leaky Gut clients
