Module II: Cardiology


This module examines the biochemistry and physiology of the body from a cardiac perspective. Seminars will also focus on what treatment modalities are available for hypercholesterolemia, hyperinsulinemia, hypertriglyceridemia, along with abnormal cholesterol fractionation results through a case history format.

Upon completion of this module, the participants will:

  • Discuss risk factors for heart disease including elevated cholesterol, triglycerides, lipid fractionation, homocysteine, lipoprotein (a), ferritin, fibrinogen & c-reactive protein
  • Look at interventions for chronic endothelial inflammation, and understand the role of inflammation in CVD
  • Know which laboratory tests to order & how to properly evaluate insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus, and risk factors for heart disease
  • Learn nutritional treatments and laboratory evaluations for hypertension, and discuss insulin’s role in 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 & oxidation
  • Learn the causes of endothelial dysfunction
  • Evaluate the link between oxidative stress & glycemic control
  • Learn about the glycemic index in relationship to foods
  • Identify patients with syndrome X/metabolic syndrome and learn recommendations for treatment
  • Establish a treatment course & treat patients with insulin resistance, diabetes & neuropathy
  • Learn how various nutrient deficiencies lead/support metabolic syndrome
  • Examine metabolic & Anti-Aging approaches to hypertension through nutrition & supplementation
  • Review cholesterol physiology & its contribution to atherosclerosis
  • Examine effective nutrition & nutritional supplementation strategies for dyslipidemia
  • Access the current literature on the complex physiologic relationships underlying cardiovascular metabolic disease
  • Examine effective nutritional strategies & nutritional supplementation for cardiovascular & metabolic disease
  • Learn the difference between insulin sensitivity, insulin resistance & type II diabetes
  • Know the counter-regulatory hormones, and how their normal functions contribute to/cause insulin resistance
  • Redirect the focus of the treatment of type II 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, psychiatric illnesses, and the role of medications
  • Investigate how targeted nutraceuticals can support cardiovascular function
  • Define toxic blood syndrome & discuss interventions to improve it
  • Identify the inflammatory index & how to investigate silent inflammation
  • Discuss the role of energy medicine in optimum health and cellular function
  • Learn how the new triad of bioenergetic energy in cardiac health (i.e., coenzyme Q10, L-carnitine & D-ribose, can help prevent & overcome heart disease)
  • Discover why ATP is so essential in optimizing diastolic function of the heart
  • Learn about the 20 most common toxins that are found in our everyday lives
  • Explore the relationship between chemical toxins, heavy metals, inflammation, and CVD
