ABORM

The ABORM has been formed by leading professionals in Oriental Reproductive Medicine who have come together voluntarily with a resolve to meet the patient and physician demand for a demonstration of knowledge of care in this field. We have recognized the need for a certification to maintain that practitioners who are treating patients with Oriental Medicine in the field of Reproductive Health are doing so with an advanced knowledge and experience, and to allow practitioners to demonstrate their knowledge through the process of voluntary examination.

The ABORM is a non-profit 501(C)6 corporation devoted to teaching, research, and the practice of Oriental Medicine as it relates to the treatment of reproductive disorders. The ABORM respects the training and lineage of all practitioners who work with reproductive disorders. Our medicine is holistic in nature, and that holism must be retained as we choose to gain advanced knowledge in the treatment of fertility with Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. In the interest of the health of all our patients, and the advancement of the AOM profession, ABORM asserts the right of any practitioner to gain advanced knowledge in any area he or she chooses to study.

About The Founder

Jane Practice Management Software

 

Jane is a modern and beautifully designed practice management software designed for and used by practitioners just like you. You might not necessarily love the admin side of running a practice - you probably just want to treat clients, so you need a software that just works! And it needs to work for the admin staff,  the practitioners, the patients booking online and the owners running a business. As a founder of Jane and a clinic owner myself I know that your management software is being used all day every day and is integral to the running of your business.

We work hard (and all the time!) to make that happen smoothly. We are a support centred business with our rapid growth being fuelled by word of mouth. We like to say that Jane has grown as a company the same way you have grown your practice - by providing a great service about which our clients talk about!  I can tell you about Jane's features: available from anywhere and on any device, Jane offers scheduling, secure charting, invoicing, receipts as well as optional online booking and integrated payment processing. But really I find that almost every software out there uses the same words  "intuitive" "simple" "powerful".  So we'd like to prove those claims. What sets us apart is the experience you'll have using Jane.

Come by the booth or meet Jane online at www.janeapp.com and we'd love to show you what Jane can do.

Bema Botanical Solutions

Welcome to Bema Botanicals where centuries-old Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) meets modern pharmaceutical standards. By taking a measurable, scientific approach to product development and quality control, we ensure that the raw herbs, extract granules, and remedies we carried for you are of the highest quality, purity, and efficacy.

In 2003, three master TCM Practitioners came together with a shared vision. They recognized that a synergistic approach was needed to bring the time-honoured Eastern wisdom of TCM into the 21st century. Furthermore, they saw a real void in the Canadian marketplace for TCM products that could withstand the exacting standards of pharmaceutical science. From that vision, came Bema Botanicals. Today, the North Vancouver-based company is a market leader in the supply of premium certified raw herbs, high potency concentrated extract granules, and natural supplements. Bema also operates, from their state-of-the-art facility, a full-spectrum dispensary for filling herbal prescriptions, custom compounding, and private labelled proprietary formulas.

Our guiding philosophy, "Science First," is demonstrated by an unwavering commitment to research-driven products, synergistic formulations, and meaningful quantities of therapeutic ingredients. These fundamental standards also serve to define our promise to health care practitioners and their patients.

DUTCH test by Precision Analytical Inc.

DUTCH test by Precision Analytical Inc. offers a revolutionary new model of hormone testing called DUTCH - a Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones.  By using four simple, dried urine collections, DUTCH takes the advantages of a 24-hour urine test and adds the pattern of free cortisol (which has traditionally been acquired from saliva).  Hormone and metabolite values correlate to 24-hour urine values.  Free cortisol concentrations accurately replace its testing in saliva.   

Sex hormone analysis uses the most accurate method available (GC-MS/MS) and offers basic hormones and extensive metabolites (2-OH, 4-OH, 16-OH, methoxyestrogen, DHT).  Adrenal hormone testing is the most comprehensive available.  This test includes free cortisol and also a better marker of total cortisol production by including cortisol metabolites.  Melatonin is also tested.

Lastly, DUTCH testing is built to optimize HRT monitoring.  Special methods (separation of free and conjugated hormones) and additional metabolites make the testing unparalleled for testing with and without HRT.
