This module looks at the multifactorial problems involved in helping the patient with weight management. Healthy eating programs will be reviewed along with genetic issues in helping the patient with weight loss. This course also surveys Anti-Aging and Functional Medicine approaches to integrative cancer therapies. Each drug that is prescribed causes at least two nutritional depletions which are responsible for some of the side effects seen in medication use. The participant will examine nutritional depletions caused by medications in this module. In addition, protocols for working with athletes will be elucidated. After attending this course, the participant will furthermore learn new therapies to wean patients off of hypnotic agents and anti-depressants.
"James LaValle is a walking encyclopedia; there is not a single course you can attend with the dynamic duo (Dr. Heyman included) that will not fill in your gaps!!! Exercise and nutrition was super exciting and informative."

"Whole new way of thinking. As a medical school instructor, I feel that a large portion of medical education is obsolete."

"I enjoyed this exercise and nutrition module immensely. My colleagues have been in contact with me this weekend and all are impressed at the pearls of knowledge I excitedly tell them about. This has been the highlight of my Fellowship training so far! Thank you!"

"I am a pediatrician, and as such, I wasn’t thinking that the Nutrition and Exercise Module VIII would be as useful as the other modules. Boy, was I wrong. I learned so many pearls that will change my practice starting tomorrow. I got tools and ideas for supporting my obese patients, my patients with CP, my patients with chronic infections like Lyme, and my CFS/FM patients that I can/will use tomorrow. Truly, I was so blown away by the quality of the speakers that I just had to let you know. James LaValle is an excellent speaker, thinker and program organizer. I cannot say enough nice things – THANK YOU."

"I was blown away with module 8 this weekend. I always put it off because it sounded like an easy module. I thought I knew everything I needed to know about weight loss; I was wrong. FYI, our office specifically deals with hormone and weight loss patients. Jim was an amazing lecturer with overwhelming knowledge about the topic. The speakers he brought in for lectures were very well prepared for the event. They all knew their presentation material and topics so well."
"I'm just sorry it has taken me 2 1/2 years to finally take the module. I'm thankful for how much A4M has changed my life in practice."
