Patients often need someone to understand the root cause of their problems. Often these problems occurred during an event in their life that created a "gap" in their journey toward wellness.
By seeking knowledge about these "gaps", we can better understand our role in "filling the cracks" of impaired or interrupted development.
Sometimes the difference between where someone is and where they want to be can be understood and supported by a provider with dedication to seek the root cause of the problem.
ALF Therapy offers unique opportunities in providing structural, functional and neurologic development for patients who need our help the most.
It takes time to tell a story - especially the story of one's life and development.
By helping our providers to understand the ways to support a healthy beginning, middle and ending of a successful life story, we can be a meaningful part of improving their lives.
Trauma creates gaps in ideal development.
The key to recovery is to understand the root cause of the problem. By helping our patients benefit from the most innovative and effective techniques and technology, we can support them in recovery from structural and functional issues that bring them to our offices for help.
Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.” – José N. Harris.
The key to living a resilient life is to have the tools necessary to help one overcome the challenges in life. We are all given the tools, but sometimes we lose them along the way.
We are living our story...and that takes time. Being in a rush to judgment, hurry to finish and need to prove ourselves to others can create a sense of vulnerability and scarcity.
By taking a closer look at the science, we can better understand ourselves. This presentation will explore the neurobiology of connection, the dynamics of development and the importance of resilience as a common theme in living our best lives. Dr. Angie Tenholder will describe the opportunities for increasing our ability to connect with our patients while better understanding the principles behind physiologic and neurologic development.
The concepts of Primal Graft share a common theme with ALF Therapy as a whole. By understanding the principles and applications of this technique, the ALF Therapy provider can have yet another tool to assist in promoting wellness and enhanced capability for overcoming the trauma often associated with surgical procedures.
Encouraging connectivity for the brain between the injury and the healing is at the core of intention for the Primal Graft concept. Localized neuroplasticity can work to our advantage by understanding the principle-based approach using the materials that promote deeper healing on many levels. Harnessing our understandings of the mapping characteristics of the mesencephalic nucleus of the trigeminal nerve can prevent the incidence of developing chronic pain as a component to their healing process.
Dr. Darick Nordstrom will enlighten and educate on one of the most exciting new opportunities to promote healing on many complex levels with the use of one simple product and technique. By introducing growth factors at the site of the trauma, the patient has a powerful opportunity for pain-free recovery from surgical procedures.
Nature provided us with an amazing opportunity by giving us a built-in tool for resilience and overcoming obstacles while still maintaining a sense of peace and well-being. By utilizing the principles of reset and recovery with a carefully designed HCG hormone supplementation protocol, we can offer our patients a powerful tool for overall health and reduction in compulsive behavior.
Many ALF patients can benefit from improved joint stability through prolotherapy.
With Proper Prolo, there is no pain and therefore no avoidance of the technique. The procedure promotes a recovery process that is welcomed by the limbic system as a more comprehensive method of healing.
By incorporating specific techniques and the addition of testosterone into the prolotherapy procedure, the provider can increase both the safety and efficacy of the sophisticated technique for restoring function and reducing pain. This technique is especially helpful for treating the patient with hypermobility and TMJD.
When there is trauma, the brain sets up an avoidance mechanism to avoid future pain/discomfort.
There there is Proper Prolo, the brain creates a safer environment for healing through understanding the concepts explained in this presentation.
New appliance modifications based on experience and feedback from our ALF Therapy community of providers
Understanding the implications of tongue function and positioning on the autonomic nervous system and functional neurology.
Understanding the role of the Anterior Coupling Response (ACR) as a precursor to the activation of the Trigeminal Cardiac Reflex (TCR). The use of the DDME GemPro and SleepImage cardiopulmonary coupling for screening patients and customizing treatment options.
Tools and techniques that can be used to identify patients who could benefit from a functional approach focused on recovery and resilience as compared to an approach focused primarily on structural changes.
As we contemplate our role as doctors, therapists and healers, how can we truly measure the impact of our therapeutic interventions?
InterFACE 2021 will take a deep dive into the aspects of functional assessments and the role of various tools for biometric analysis.
The annual ALF InterFACE conference was created to provide an opportunity for advanced problem solving and interdisciplinary training.
This conference is not an introductory course on how to provide ALF Therapy in your practice. Instead, it is designed to help the ALF Therapy provider be a better clinician and healer by understanding that multifaceted patients require a sophisticated and interdisciplinary approach to care.
The goal of supporting the practitioner, treatment TEAMS and patient care is achieved through both clinical and classroom opportunities using authentic ALF foundational principles as well as new techniques and technologies.
The ALF InterFACE conferences and courses are held in the metropolitan St. Louis, Missouri area in the 11 South Professional Building in Columbia, Illinois which is an approximate 30 minute drive from Lambert International Airport.
Rooms are available at the Columbia Hampton Inn. in Columbia, Illinois which is less than 2 miles from the course venues. If you are interested in a discounted rate, please call 618-281-9739 for more information. The Hampton Inn offers complimentary breakfast, parking and wifi .
Rooms are also available at the Holiday Inn South County, a short 10 minute drive from the conference.
Lambert International Airport in St Louis, Missouri is the nearest airport and the airport most commonly used by the major airline carriers. We recommend using the Lyft service as Uber does not guarantee service to our location.
Midamerica Airport in Mascoutah, Illinois serves customers of Allegiant Air.
Where east meets west, the clinical meets the classroom and where the conceptual meets the practical is where our ALF Therapy community meets to share our talents, skills and knowledge.
Darick Nordstrom DDS, the creator of the Advanced Light Force appliance will be sharing his knowledge and experience gained through years of development and use of the ALF in transformative patient care. The ALF appliance has revolutionized the role of dentistry in the scope of healthcare as we know it and has the potential for helping generations of people lead healthier, more functional lives while creating beautiful, balanced faces.
The simple sophistication of the ALF family of appliances provides opportunities that surpass the expectations of both patients and providers when properly utilized by adequately trained providers in a TEAM approach to wellness.
Additional presenters have complemented Dr. Nordstrom's vision for ALF Therapy education in an approach that encourages collaboration and creativity.
This conference is hosted by the not for profit corporation ALF InterFACE Academy, Inc which has applied for 501c status.
