Module VII
Autoimmune Disease & Inflammation
Sept 28-30, 2018 - Nashville, TN

Description

Module VII: Autoimmune Diseases focuses on inflammatory disorders, autoimmune diseases, allergies, cancer, and the gut-immune-brain connection. Because the incidence of autoimmune disease has increased dramatically in the past few decades, this module explores the primary disorders from an Anti-Aging and Functional Medicine approach: chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, Grace’s disease, and lupus. Cellular and molecular biology of immunity, the cellular stress response, oxidation, genetic damage, inflammation, etiology of disease including environmental and lifestyle factors, and the risk for cancer development are also reviewed. Clinical approaches to patient evaluations, testing, and disease management are provided, in addition to an understanding of the role that low dose naltrexone plays as a therapy for autoimmune disease. Attendees will gain insights regarding new therapies for pain control, and further knowledge surrounding the role of toxic burden in overall health, with detoxification methods including chelation.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the micronutrient insufficiencies that lead to DNA and mitochondrial damage
  • Recognize the intracellular signaling pathways, cellular biology, and molecular biology of immunity and inflammation
  • Describe the important interactions of the endocrine system with immunity
  • Discuss gastrointestinal manifestations of autoimmune disease
  • Review the role of heavy metals, genes, environment, and biotoxic exposures in autoimmunity
  • Compare integrative oncology protocols and immune nutritional support techniques
  • Describe 3 ways in which the microbiome affects with our health
  • Discuss 2 methods for treating central sensitzation
  • Identify two evidence based non-pharmacologic therapies for acute pain
