Description

Module VIII: Weight Management, Nutrition, & Integrative Cancer Therapies will review a range of current topics in modern Integrative Medicine, including key concepts surrounding metabolism and weight loss, sports medicine, and integrative cancer therapies. Instructors will discuss the multifactorial problems involved in helping patients with weight management, with an assessment of healthy eating problems and genetic issues. Course sessions will further assess prescription drugs in cancer therapy, many of which cause nutritional depletions that are responsible for medication side effects. Participants will ultimately become well-versed in the most cutting-edge therapies and treatment modalities to treat complex disorders, while addressing the root causes and symptoms of chronic disease and learning novel therapies to better assist patients.
