  • Volume 28 Issue 4 - Immune modulation via herbal medicine: new treatment
           proposals to improve outcomes for type 1 diabetics'
    • Abstract: Beaumont, Gabrielle
      Current research surrounding both epigenetics and the human microbiome are changing our understanding of possible treatments for autoimmune diseases. Herbal medicines with the ability to modulate immune responses have the potential to reorganise both innate and adaptive immune system responses. Recent discoveries have furthered the understanding of the possible mechanisms behind the development of type 1 diabetes and the complex cellular interplay that results in T-cell mediated autoimmune destruction of pancreatic B-cells, leading to an insulin deficit. While there is promising research into herbal medicines that can regenerate B-cells, this article focuses on two herbal medicines that show promise in the field of immune modulation: Cordyceps militaris and Urtica dentata.

  • Volume 28 Issue 4 - An introduction to cannabis and the endocannabinoid
           system
    • Abstract: Sinclair, Justin
      As Australia moves to regulate and enact the cultivation and manufacture of high quality medicinal Cannabis strains for assorted therapeutic applications, this raises important issues of safety, quality, efficacy and the clinical challenges that will be presented to authorised prescribers in understanding the complexity of the Cannabis genus and how it interacts pharmacologically with human physiology. Key areas of focus in this overview include the endocannabinoid system, Cannabis phytochemistry, the entourage effect (constituent synergy), potential pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic interactions and the impact of route of administration on clinical efficacy. All of these factors pose significant clinical challenges in not only prescribing medicinal Cannabis safely, but also in achieving effective amelioration of symptoms and positive patient outcomes. Furthermore, these factors highlight that the classic pharmacological "one-size-fits all model" may not be entirely appropriate for this unique herbal medicine, but rather supports the application of a holistic, patient-centred, individualised approach to this plant's therapeutic implementation in Australia.

  • Volume 28 Issue 3 - Management of mental health in Australia: A critical
           role for herbalists and naturopaths
    • Abstract: McIntyre, Erica
      Mental health problems are highly prevalent in Australia, with one in five Australian adults experiencing a common mental disorder in the previous 12 months. Many people with mental health problems use complementary medicines, including herbal medicines; however, relatively few of these people consult with herbal medicine practitioners. While naturopaths and herbalists are not integrated within the mental health care system, they have the potential to play an important role in the treatment and prevention of mental illness; however, there are a number of barriers to achieving this. This article outlines the prevalence of common mental illness in Australia, herbal medicine use for mental health, the current mental health care system in Australia, the role of herbal medicine practitioners in managing mental health, the barriers for herbal medicine practitioners to effectively manage mental health, and proposes a way forward to ensure people with mental illness can have access to quality mental health care provided by Western herbalists and naturopaths.

      The 4th National Symposium on Traditional Medicine 2016 "Healthy Women for a Wealthy Nation" was held at the Institute of Indigenous Medicine, part of the University of Colombo, in Sri Lanka on Friday, June 3, 2016. The aim of the symposium was to encourage academics, medical officers, young researchers and students to collaborate with traditional practitioners who focus on maternal and child health. Participants discussed the role of Ayurveda and Unani traditional medicine in women and children's health in the 21st century and how the health of an entire civilisation depends heavily on the health of its women.

  • Volume 28 Issue 3 - The clinical management of menstrual migraine and
           headache by the herbal medicine practitioner
    • Abstract: Villella, Sandra
      Menstrual migraine affects approximately 20% of all female migraineurs and they are reported to be more severe, longer lasting, more prone to recurrence and more resistant to treatment than nonmenstrual migraine attacks. Oestrogen is believed to play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of migraine. The goal of hormonal (pharmaceutical) treatment of menstrual migraine is to minimise oestrogen fluctuations. This may be achieved by supplemental oestradiol during the perimenstrual period, continuing the administration of the hormonally active oral contraceptive pill, or the use of transdermal oestrogen during the pill-free week of the oral contraceptive pill. Administration of combined oral contraceptives to migraineurs with aura is cautioned due to the further increased risk for ischemic stroke. This paper explores the hypothesis and available evidence as to whether supplemental dietary phytoestrogens, particularly soy isoflavones, with their weak oestrogenic action, may mitigate the premenstrual decline in oestradiol that predictably precipitates migraine attacks, and reduce or prevent menstrual migraine in a similar way to supplemental pharmaceutical oestrogens.

      Discussion also includes an exploration as to whether herbal medicines, either with a phytoestrogen component or with an oestrogen-modulating effect, work to counterbalance this oestrogen decline. Herbal medicines that have traditionally been used for the treatment of migraine and headache are also considered as part of the holistic treatment of menstrual migraine.

  • Volume 28 Issue 3 - Concurrent use of self-prescribed complementary and

           Possible side effects
    • Abstract: Peng, Wenbo
      Whilst women frequently visit general practitioners for help with menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, research shows many women also self-prescribe complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) to control these symptoms. Further research is required to understand women's motivations for self-prescribing CAM during menopause and to inform safe usage if these CAM and hormone products are utilised concurrently.

    • Abstract: Steel, Amie
      The use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in pregnancy has recently attracted substantial interest from researchers in Australia. As a result, there has been advancement in our understanding of the nature and drivers of CAM use by Australian pregnant women, as well as a number of novel findings identified which provide a platform for future enquiry. This paper overviews a number of these recent Australian studies and highlights some important considerations and implications of the findings for practitioners, women and policymakers alike. The areas discussed include the impact of CAM use during pregnancy on adverse birth events at a population level, the impact of the model of maternity care upon CAM use during labour and birth, and the need for additional information regarding the safety and effectiveness of CAM use during pregnancy to better inform women's decision-making.

  • Volume 28 Issue 2 - Partners in practice: Practitioners' perceptions of
           herbal medicine manufacturers revealed through dispensary decisions
    • Abstract: Evans, Sue; Avila, Catherine
      The dispensary of professional herbalists and naturopaths, with its stock of herbal products, provides a window into their relationships with both herbal manufacturers and patients. This research aims to examine their decision-making process in relation to dispensary stock.

      Method: A survey was developed in the Qualtrix platform to gather the perceptions of practitioners of Western herbal medicine in Australia who are responsible for herbal dispensary decisions. Links to the survey were disseminated through major professional bodies and a hard copy was distributed at the NHAA International Conference in 2015.

      Results: One hundred and sixty-seven surveys were completed by decision-making initial respondents who tended to be in their forties and in practice for over 10 years. Herbal tinctures were ranked by 71% as their most frequently prescribed herbal product, followed by herbal tablets (23%). Eighty-five percent purchased stock from two or more suppliers and/or manufacturers. The range of herbal products (both plant species and preparations) and perceptions of manufacturers 'standards and practices' drove decisions about purchases. Clinicians' textual responses reveal high expectations of manufacturers beyond manufacturing standards, including ethical practices, honesty, sourcing of herbal raw materials, investment in research and customer support.

      Conclusion: Practitioners rely on manufacturers to provide clinically effective herbal products, to disseminate research summaries and to provide continuing professional education. This gives manufacturers great responsibility and influence. Australian herbalists need to be aware of the importance of access to independent, non-commercial advice regarding all aspects of the clinical encounter.

  • Volume 28 Issue 2 - The efficacy of Hibiscus sabdariffa (rosella) in
           essential hypertension: A systematic review of clinical trials
    • Abstract: Walton, Rebecca J; Whitten, Dawn L; Hawrelak, Jason A
      Hypertension is a common condition in Western nations and is associated with significant morbidity. Hibiscus sabdariffa (rosella) has a long history of traditional use across multiple continents and cultures for a number of chronic illnesses, including hypertension.

      Method: The effectiveness of Hibiscus sabdariffa for the treatment of hypertension was assessed via a systematic review of human clinical trials. A computer-based search and data abstraction was done on 29 October 2015 using the following databases: AMED, Academic Search Prem, CINAHL, Greenfile, Healthsource, Medline, PsychArticles, Psychology and Behavioural Sciences Collection, PsycINFO, SPORTDiscus, EMBASE and COCHRANE.

      Results: Ten papers were found that met the inclusion criteria. Heterogeneity in trial design precluded combination of the results. All papers found a significant decrease in systolic blood pressure (SBP) in the rosella groups. The decrease in SBP ranged from 6.3-31.9 mmHg in individual trials. The decrease in diastolic blood pressure (DBP) was significant in nine of the ten trials and ranged from 1.1-19.7 mmHg. In comparative trials, a standardised extract of rosella (9.62 mg of total anthocyanins/dose/day) appeared to be as effective as captopril and hydrochlorothiazide, but not as effective as lisinopril.

      Conclusion: Rosella appears to be a safe and well-tolerated treatment option, which may have a place in the treatment of mildto- moderate essential hypertension. Data suggests that it may provide comparable effectiveness to some pharmaceutical antihypertensive medications. Further research should focus on dose and duration of treatment, interactions with medications and quality of starting material.

  • Volume 28 Issue 1 - The World Naturopathic Federation: Global
           opportunities for the Australian profession
    • Abstract: Wardle, Jon; Cook, Natalie; Steel, Amie; Barker, Carolyn
      The World Naturopathic Federation was formally launched in Calgary, Canada in June 2015. Less than one year on, the WNF is in the process of developing formal relations with the World Health Organization and has members drawn from five continents. At the end of its founding year, Australia and Canada are the only countries with representation across all membership categories of the WNF, demonstrating a commitment across the entire spectrum of the naturopathic professions in these countries to connect with the international naturopathic community to advance the profession on a global and a local level. This paper highlights the history and efforts which have led to this momentous achievement, as well as the perspectives and experiences of organisations from each membership category within Australia. The potential contribution of the Australian naturopathic community and the opportunities to strengthen the profession within Australia through the WNF are also described from the viewpoint of organisations who have chosen to be involved.

  • Volume 28 Issue 1 - Continuing professional education of Australian
           naturopaths; the need for independent education
    • Abstract: Arthur, Rachel
      The medical profession's dependence upon industry-sponsored education is a major point of contention in ethical modern practice. Interactions between doctors and industry consistently result in altered clinical practice behaviours, producing at times clinical decisions that may be at odds with evidence-based guidelines. Despite this, many doctors' report being unaware of the degree to which industry influences their behaviour. Research documenting Australian naturopaths' heavy reliance on commercial sources of information and their reluctance to acknowledge commercialism as a source of influence upon their clinical decision making, suggests that the same phenomenon may be at play in our professional community. There is an urgent need for more independent education in the Australian naturopathic profession.

  • Volume 28 Issue 1 - A conceptual model - Exploring the influence of
           complementary medicine use on attitudes towards ageing
    • Abstract: Harnett, Joanna; Rickwood, Catherine
      Objective: To develop a conceptual model for exploring the relationship between complementary medicine (CM) use and attitudes and beliefs towards ageing.

      Methods: We examined literature from psychology, consumer behaviour, western medicine and CM on the broad topic of agerelated stereotypes, ageing, health care practice and CM.

      Results: Age-related stereotypes are associated with negative attitudes towards ageing. Self-management is thought to contribute to a positive attitude towards the prevention and treatment of age-related health and disease. However, an association specifically between CM practices that promote self-management and beliefs towards ageing has not been established.

      Conclusion: A conceptual model that guides research exploring attitudes towards ageing, and the influence of complementary medicine on behaviours is essential for informing strategies that shape the future of our ageing population.

  • Volume 28 Issue 1 - Medicinal plants used for gastrointestinal diseases in
           Garhwal region of Uttarakhand state in India
    • Abstract: Kala, Chandra Prakash
      Diarrhoea, dysentery, cholera, and constipation are common gastrointestinal diseases prevalent across the world. Gastrointestinal disease is often fatal in the developing world due to malnutrition, consumption of contaminated food and water, and poor hygienic conditions. In many rural areas, the traditional healing system, based on the use of plants, is still practised for treating gastrointestinal disease. In this context, the specific objective of this study is to identify and document the uses of plant species for treating gastrointestinal disease. Herbal healers living in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand state in India were interviewed using a structured questionnaire survey. A total of 90 plant species were documented in the treatment of 10 types of gastrointestinal disease, including dysentery, diarrhoea, ulcer, gastric troubles, flatulence, piles, indigestion and cholera. Most of the species were used for treating a limited number of gastrointestinal diseases, whereas Aconitum heterophyllum, Aegle marmelos, Azadiracta indica, Bauhinia variegata and Ziziphus mauritiana were used for treating over 5 types of gastrointestinal diseases. Among different ailments, the highest number of species (n=47) was documented for treating dysentery, followed by diarrhoea (n=37), ulcer (n=23), piles (n=22), cholera (n=16), and indigestion (n=14). Thorough clinical testing of these plant species may help to generate herbal drugs that may be affordable to a large population in developing countries for the treatment of gastrointestinal disease.
