Module V TRIADS: A System’s Biology Approach


The TRIADS: A System’s Biology Approach module explores how to evaluate and treat common patient presentations by synthesizing best practices from Modules I - IV. This module offers the most up-to-date information on physiological interrelationships for healthcare providers who are on the frontlines with patients. It will address a clinical framework to show reciprocal relationships between the adrenals- thyroid-pancreas, gut-immune-brain, cardiopulmonary-neuro-vascular, liver-lymph-kidney and estrogen-progesterone- testosterone.

The course will examine patient case histories that cover a range of metabolic syndromes, disorders, and diseases, with the ultimate goal of providing comprehensive metabolic, functional, and nutritional approaches towards disease management. Participants will further understand the ways in which to interpret, evaluate, and treat patients for toxic metals, neurotransmitter dysfunction, amino and fatty acid imbalances, organic acid deficiencies, methylation dysfunction, and other issues that arise through a variety of patient conditions in the clinical setting.

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Examine how the triad framework operates and its application to reduce metaflammation and restore metabolic resiliency.
  • Discuss natural and hormonal treatment strategies for cortisol, insulin, and thyroid
  • Identify treatment strategies for Gut-Immune-Brain pathologies
  • Manage patients presenting with neurocardiology and complex cardiovascular disorders
  • Apply detoxification strategies to remove toxins, chemicals and heavy metals
  • Describe the role of sex hormones in the aging male and female, and how to balance and replace them through natural products or hormone replacement therapy

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.

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
