"I found the Lab Interpretation Workshop extremely useful and clinically relevant. I wish this had been available when I first started taking modules with the A4M! Because it is not a CME event, the ability to freely discuss laboratory companies and nutraceutical products by name was very helpful. This workshop helps me fill in some of the gaps of my knowledge, and I highly recommend it. I appreciated the breadth of topics, from nutritional testing to porphyrins and toxins, Lyme & mold, iodine, methylation, GI and more."
Patty Powers, MD
Medicine is currently at a crossroads. In medicine, a protocol approach has historically been used. The science is now here to individualize and customize a patient’s care, and also to assess the etiology of the problem—not solely treating the symptoms.
The science is currently available to measure hormone levels, amino acids, fatty acids, organic acids, and neurotransmitters. New studies and medical therapies to aid in the evaluation of the patient’s gastrointestinal tract have been developed. Each medication that is prescribed by a healthcare provider potentially causes a nutritional depletion that has not been previously assessed in the field of medicine. We now have the capability to measure more than 35 nutrients in the body, and supplement the patient with the nutrients that are individualized to their specific needs based on environment and their own genetic histories.
This workshop has been created to fill gaps of knowledge, and to assist in transitioning the practitioner from a protocol driven treatment system to scientifically based treatment modalities, that are designed to provide customized care to patients.
"This was an amazing, information-packed course! I have worked with complex patients in my practice for the past 20 years, and only expected to get little tidbits out of this class...but I came away with over 20 typed pages of clinical pearls that I have put to use, and seen results immediately. Thank you A4M for pulling this fantastic staff of professionals together. It was priceless!"
--Dr Susan E Godman

Precision Medicine & Health: A Personalized Approach to Reverse Diabetes
Hormones play a large and important role in everyone's daily health and well-being. Disease, certain stages of life and different health conditions can affect your body's ability to make or use hormones. Having a clear understanding of this connection is critical to making informed health decisions. With the guidance of international hormone expert Dr. Thierry Hertoghe, you will discover the potential and practical applications of hormone therapy in preventing and/or managing from common diseases like cholesterol, heart failure, and depression.
Dr. Hertoghe will first review with patient pictures the important basics of the main hormone therapies (signs and symptoms of each major hormone deficiency, hormone therapy doses,etc.). Then Dr. Hertoghe will address the beneficial and adverse effects of hormone therapies on coronary heart disease, plus answer the question if heart failure develops because of hormone deficiencies and what to do about it. He will investigate with the audience if hormone therapies treat the consequence or cause of arterial hypertension, providing precious clues on treatment. Finally, the efficacy of hormone therapies in reducing hypercholesterolemia and hyperhomocysteneima will be examined as well as practical tips to get the best results.
Additionally, attendees will learn how hormone therapies can get patients out of the vicious cycle of sadness and low mood. The curiosity of participants will increase when chronic anxiety disorders will be discussed. Can in some or many cases hormone deficits cause the chronicity of the anxiety, and if so what are the treatment strategies? Finally, the workshop ends with on stage consultations of attendees. Learn there how to diagnose and treat hormone deficiencies by diagnosing them in yourself and others in the audience. The workshop closes with a question and answer session.
The Next Generation in Hormone Science and Chronic Disease
It is estimated that over 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain— accounting for more patients than diabetes, coronary heart disease, and cancer combined. While acute pain is a normal sensation triggered in the nervous system to alert of injury, chronic pain is different in that it is persistent and keeps pain signals firing in the nervous system for an extended amount of time. The total incremental cost of pain ranges from $560-$635 billion in the United States alone, which combines medical healthcare costs and economic costs related to disability days and lost wages/productivity. Sadly, it is estimated that 50-75% of patients die in moderate to severe pain. The quality of life impact is also widespread: a recent survey showed that 59% of respondents said pain impacted their overall enjoyment of life, 77% reported feeling depressed, and 70% said they have trouble concentrating.
The purpose of this workshop is to review the fundamental diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to pain management in a functional medicine treatment paradigm. Fittingly, the use of cannabinoids in the treatment of pain syndromes will also be reviewed along with the regulatory status of appropriate use.
Pain and Cannabinoid Medicine Update
Functional and integrative medicine practitioners often utilize high-quality dietary supplements to support their patients’ health. It is an absolute necessity to understand how to best work with supplements, which types of products or ingredients have the best outcomes clinically, and how to logistically manage supplements within your practice to minimize overhead. There is also a general concern about quality, which is reinforced in the media, and a desire to ensure that the recommended dietary supplements are going to truly help their clients/patients and not cause harm.
Hormones play a significant role in addressing immunocompetency and lifespan.
