Metabolic Syndrome Masterclass
Assessment & Treatment with Clinical Nutrition

Presented by Dr Oscar Coetzee, MS, DCN, Clinical Nutritionist

Dr Oscar Coetzee Masterclass

Learn Strategies to Prevent & Treat the
Metabolic Syndrome Epidemic

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is increasingly common in Australia and worldwide. This increase is associated with the global epidemic of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

With the elevated risk there is an urgent need for clinicians to understand relevant strategies to prevent and treat this increasingly common cluster of conditions.

Metabolic syndrome can be a master of disguise and can occur with symptoms of:

  • Glucose intolerance
  • Central obesity
  • Lipid abnormalities
  • Hypertension
  • Insulin resistance associated with excess abdominal weight
  • Leptin Resistance
  • Lipedema
  • Uric Acid
  • Anthropometric measurements
  • Fatty Liver
  • Conditions such as PCOS and sleep apnoea can also be associated

Dr Coetzee will tour Australia and New Zealand in October 2019

Don’t miss this compelling live Masterclass program.

Learn the clinical protocols, applications and research behind Dr Coetzee’s experience
in reversing Metabolic Syndrome and how to implement these in practice.

Masterclass
Key Learning Objectives

  1. Understand current, expanded assessment criteria for metabolic syndrome at an earlier stage, blood tests and anthropometric measurements.
  2. Know key lifestyle modifications to support reversal of metabolic syndrome. Learn which specific exercise regimes are proven effective and how to implement them for sustained results.
  3. Learn effective whole-food dietary protocols to reverse MetS. A detailed 12-week metabolic syndrome reversal program and instructions how to customise it for each patient is presented. Receive take-home handouts to use in clinic.
  4. Define relevant nutritional and botanical supplement regimes to support your patients’ individual outcomes; dosage for different patient presentations; protocols for maintenance after successful MetS reversal/recovery.
  5. Genomic insights to support assessment. Know genes and SNPs that influence metabolic syndrome and epigenetic factors to support MetS reversal.

  • Understand related conditions of insulin resistance and heart disease
  • Functional tests you may need as diagnostic support
  • How to accurately interpret test results

Metabolic Syndrome and Interrelated Conditions

  • Review of common and uncommon risk factors for Metabolic Syndrome
  • Changing the microbiata in Metabolic Syndrome patients
  • This Masterclass will present new understandings for an integrative medicine approach

Integrative medicine for Metabolic Syndrome is increasingly informed by science and based on core concepts including: patient-centred care, a sustainable, healing environment, a comprehensive approach to nutrition and gut-health therapies, and health and wellness management.

Latest Research and Emerging Theories

  • New approaches in Metabolic Syndrome diagnostics
  • Science-based nutritional interventions
  • Clinical strategies and protocols

Learn from Case Studies…

  • Strategies and protocols for the management of Metabolic Syndrome
  • Report on Dr Coetzee’s MSRP (Metabolic Syndrome Reversal Program)
  • Rationale for relevant protocols to restore healthy gut function
  • How lifestyle and nutritional factors improve clinical outcomes

Clinical Discussion – Nutritional factors in diagnosis and treatment

  • Nutritional strategies to treat insulin resistance, heart disease, PCOS
  • Genomic insights, genes and SNPs as they pertain to these conditions
  • Relevant clinical interventions to influence bidirectional signalling between the gastrointestinal tract and the brain to modulate behaviour

Introducing Dr Oscar Coetzee

Dr Coetzee will present an interactive masterclass based on his 20 years’ experience and special areas of interest in clinical practice and research

Research and Teaching Faculty 

Dr Coetzee is a full-time faculty member at Maryland University of Integrative Health, and in 2017 received the “Great Esteem Award” for his dedication to student performance. In 2018 he received recognition as an “associate professor”. He is also the Associate Director of Nutrition in the Doctor of Health Science Degree at the University of Bridgeport and serves as an adjunct faculty at the prestigious Georgetown Medical School.

Dr Coetzee is the director of clinical nutrition at Natural Health Care Center in Long Branch, NJ. Dr Coetzee also served as the Legislative Chair for the National Association of Nutritional Professionals for two years and is board certified as a BCNS supervisor. He is currently a member on the Designs for Health Science Advisory Board.

Dietary Protocols to Transform Health

Dr Oscar Coetzee has earned a Master’s degree in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport, and a Doctorate in Clinical Nutrition (DCN) with a specialisation in nutrigenomics from Maryland University.

He was nominated for Best Research Study by the University of Bridgeport for his Master’s thesis, titled “Reversing of Metabolic Syndrome through the MSRP – Case Series Trial”.

Special Interest in Metabolic Syndrome

Dr Coetzee started his clinical professional career as a drug/alcohol abuse counsellor at Fair Oaks Hospital in New Jersey. In 2003, he established his own practice focusing on integrative nutritional interventions for chronic conditions and metabolic syndrome.

Dr Coetzee’s unique integration of science and the holistic model sets him apart in his field. His special interests are in the area of metabolic syndrome, intestinal permeability, type 2 diabetes, sports performance, and chronic inflammatory diseases.

“Metabolic Syndrome
is completely reversible.”
