Evaluating and Addressing Common Chronic Patient Conditions - Part Two

3.0

  • Design an efficient and cost-effective approach to evaluating your patients’ underlying health challenges
  • Select key questions to ask your patients (consultation, history, questionnaires) to hone-in on their principal underlying imbalances
  • Discover in-office, economical evaluation tools to efficiently reveal key diagnostic clues

Evaluating and Addressing Common Chronic Patient Conditions - Part One

3.0

  • Simplify the progressive cause-effect relationship of disease from biochemical imbalances to physiological disturbances to cellular/organ degeneration to disease manifestation
  • Identify the five primary underlying etiologies of virtually all chronic degenerative disease
  • Analyze the most common antecedents and triggers that predispose your patients to disease
  • Devise an evaluation algorithm that efficiently guides your testing recommendations
  • Discover novel in-office testing procedures that cost-effectively demonstrate patients’ nutrient insufficiencies; unmanaged stress; toxic burden; and sleep “debt”
  • Evaluate Heart Rate Variability test results to easily measure and demonstrate patients’ stress adaptability as well as their response to treatment modalities
  • Discriminate the meaningful information gleaned from Bio-Impedance Analysis (BIA) testing for monitoring your patients’ health restoration progress
  • Interpret evaluation results to efficiently identify which primary factors are contributing to your patients’ health challenges
  • Prioritize treatment plans that address both short-term goals (symptomatic relief) and long-term goals (correction, stabilization and prevention)
  • Distinguish which nutraceuticals best support patient needs based on history, exam, testing and symptomatology
  • Communicate the functional medicine model of health and disease with your patients with greater clarity and ease

Cardiovascular Disease Risk Assessment and Management: A Functional and Nutritional Perspective

2.0

  • Adequately frame the problem and basic epidemiology of cardiovascular disorders (CVD)
  • Present evidence of the relationship between obesity, insulin resistance, inflammation, stress and CVD
  • Summarize the standard medical and laboratory evaluation techniques and why they may only screen for approximately 50% of people at significant risk for CVD
  • Appraise the latest laboratory evaluations, including Lp (a), Apo A1, Apo B, hs-CRP, homocysteine, fibrinogen, AA/EPA, LDL-subclass and others to determine CVD risk
  • Critique the current dietary, lifestyle, nutritional supplement, nutraceutical, and herbal strategies as therapeutic management options to reduce CVD risk and for the treatment of those who already have cardiovascular issues, including: high cholesterol and dyslipidemia, genetic susceptibilities, chronic inflammation, coagulation abnormalities, and insulin resistance-related risk factors
