Module V Clinical Intensives: How to Interpret Functional Medicine Labs

Description

This module explores how to interpret functional medicine labs. When to order the tests, what do the results mean, and what therapies to offer the patient on Monday morning will all be examined at length. The participant will leave this module with the tools on how to interpret, evaluate, and treat patients for toxic metals, neurotransmitter dysfunction, amino acid and fatty acid imbalances, organic acid deficiencies, gastrointestinal issues, methylation dysfunction, and much, much more.

Module I Endocrinology:

  • Recognize the hormonal changes that women & men manifest with aging and discuss the functions of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone & DHEA in the body
  • Synthesize knowledge regarding hormone replacement therapies in men and women, to conduct case analysis of complex hormonal imbalances including PMS, PCOS, and menopause and andropause
  • Demonstrate mastery of managing patients related to age-related and premature hormone decline, hormone metabolism and disposition, epigenetics, and environmental influences on endocrinopathies
  • Apply learning to patients with obesity, insulin resistance and diabetes to correct dysglycemia due to poor dietary habits, nutrient deficiencies, hormonal imbalances and toxic exposures.
  • Discuss the differences between compounding & manufacturing medications and review the various licenses needed to compound medications

Module II Cardiology: 

  • Discuss accepted and emerging risk factors for heart disease including elevated cholesterol, triglycerides, lipid fractionation, homocysteine, lipoprotein (a), ferritin, fibrinogen & c-reactive protein
  • Apply advanced lipid testing (lipid particle number and size and HDL functionality and quality) for the diagnosis and treatment of dyslipidemia in clinical practice.
  • Analyze cases of CVD, CHD and renal disease Mutilizing the model of inflammation, oxidative stress and vascular immune dysfunction to prevent and treat atherosclerosis utilizing lifestyle, nutritional, nutraceutical and metabolic medical therapies

Module III Neurology: 

  • Discuss major neurotransmitter activity in the nervous system & their functional roles in behavior & neurological conditions
  • Synthesize knowledge regarding exposures, biological toxins, and their impact on the neuroimmune and gut-neuro axis including innate immune pathology, dysautonomias and structural brain related changes in chronic mood and cognitive disorders.
  • Apply new functional and integrative treatment modalities for sleep disorders, multiple sclerosis, stroke recovery, Parkinson's Disease, ALS & Alzheimer's disease and related conditions

Module IV Gastroenterology: 

  • Apply concepts of leaky gut, dysbiosis, hypochlorhydria, and immune intolerance in GI related conditions
  • Properly diagnose and treat GERD, peptic ulcer disease, irritable syndrome and food sensitivities utilizing a metabolic and nutritional approach in selected cases.
  • Demonstrate ability to utilize new diagnostic tests including DAO, LPS, zonulin, microbial, and immunologic panels in common GI disorders
  • Solve complex gastroenterology cases that represent key systems biology relationships to the nervous and immune systems
