Module VII: Autoimmune Diseases


The incidence of all autoimmune diseases is increasing dramatically in the last several decades. Module VII explores the major autoimmune diseases that are now present in modern society from an Anti-Aging and Functional Medicine approach. Chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, Grave’s disease, and lupus; to name just a few, will be examined. Furthermore, the role that toxins play in the body will be elucidated. Inflammation is a component of most chronic diseases. This module also investigates new therapies for major inflammatory illnesses. In addition, the role that low dose naltrexone plays as a therapy for autoimmune disease will be examined. The participant will leave this course with the ability to prescribe low dose naltrexone and also new therapies for pain control. In addition, insights will be gained in the role toxic burden plays in the patient’s overall health and the attendee will learn detoxification methods including chelation.

Upon completion of this module, the participants will:

  • 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
