join the leaders in advanced anti-aging medicine

Cardiology module headed by Mark Houston, MD, MS, FACP, ABAARM, focuses on the causes and mechanisms of hypertension, diabetes, coronary artery disease and metabolic syndrome, and how these conditions are interrelated and connected. The module also discusses various methods of diagnosis, evaluation and treatment, coupled with an assessment of laboratory evaluations, nutritional treatments and lifestyle recommendations. Sessions additionally emphasize the treatment modalities available for hypercholesterolemia, hyperinsulinemia and hypertriglyceridemia, along with abnormal cholesterol fractionation results through a case history format.

Objectives

  • Discuss risk factors for heart disease, including cholesterol, triglycerides, lipid fractionation, homocysteine, lipoprotein(a), ferritin, fibrinogen and C-reactive protein levels
  • Look at interventions for chronic endothelial inflammation and understand the role of inflammation in cardiovascular disease (CVD)
  • Know which laboratory tests to order and how to properly evaluate insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus and risk factors for heart disease
  • Learn nutritional treatments and laboratory evaluations for hypertension and discuss the role of insulin in the development of hypertension with accompanying risk factors
  • Review diet, lifestyle, and nutraceutical options for clinically managing dyslipidemia, cardiovascular inflammation, homocysteine, insulin resistance and related conditions
  • Discuss free radical production, glycation and oxidation
  • Learn the causes of endothelial dysfunction
  • Evaluate the link between oxidative stress and glycemic control
  • Learn about the glycemic index in relationship to foods
  • Identify patients with metabolic syndrome (syndrome X) and learn recommendations for treatment
  • Establish and execute a treatment course for patients with insulin resistance, diabetes and neuropathy
  • Learn how various nutrient deficiencies lead to, or support, metabolic syndrome (syndrome X)
  • Examine metabolic and anti-aging approaches to hypertension through nutrition and supplementation
  • Review cholesterol physiology and its contribution to atherosclerosis
  • Examine effective nutrition and nutritional supplementation strategies for dyslipidemia management
  • Access current literature on the complex physiologic relationships underlying cardiovascular and metabolic diseases
  • Examine effective nutritional strategies and nutritional supplementation for cardiovascular and metabolic diseases
  • Learn the difference between insulin sensitivity, insulin resistance and Type 2 diabetes
  • Know the counter-regulatory hormones and how their normal functions contribute to, or cause, insulin resistance
  • Redirect the focus of treatment for Type 2 diabetes from the insulin perspective to the point of view of the counter-regulatory hormones
  • Know the consequences of increased sugar intake and the diseases that are linked to a high-sugar diet — including hypoglycemia
  • Learn the interplay between metabolic syndrome (syndrome X), psychiatric illnesses and the role of medications
  • Investigate how targeted nutraceuticals can support cardiovascular function
  • Identify the inflammatory index and how to investigate silent inflammation
  • Discuss the role of energy medicine in optimum health and cellular function
  • Learn how the new bioenergetic triad (coenzyme Q10, L-carnitine and D-ribose) in cardiac health can help prevent and overcome heart disease
  • Discover why adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is so essential in optimizing diastolic function of the heart
  • Learn about the 20 most common toxins found in our everyday lives
  • Explore the relationship between chemical toxins, heavy metals, inflammation and CVD
