By: National University of Health Sciences

Course Description

Focusing on clinical decision making in 5 key areas Modules, using a systems approach resulting in superior health outcomes in your patient population. Module 1 Identifying and addressing inflammation Attendees will learn the differing situations in which inflammatory processes begin and evolve throughout the body. Attendees will learn the physiology, pathophysiology and neurophysiology of inflammation Attendees will learn how to identify presenting inflammatory conditions, through history taking, clinical examination, laboratory work. Attendees will learn common clinical entities that directly present, and/or often co-exist with inflammatory processes They will learn how to triage clinical interventions to modulate inflammatory responses using diet, exercise, nutrition, herbal support combinations and protocols to overcome these. Attendees will learn which peer reviewed treatment protocols are successful, and how and why they are successful, according to the most current research. Attendees will learn how to manage the different areas and systems in the body, using a systems approach to correcting these problems which focuses on physical and physiological treatment strategies. 2 hours of learning Module 2 Correction and strengthening Attendees will learn when to alter their treatment parameters to focus on staying out of the acute phase of care, by understanding the metabolic processes and clinical tests that can be used to guide our clinical decision making. Attendees will learn to use clinical benchmarks to understand and deliver more optimally focused nutrition diet and herbal protocols to support the repair of the body tissues that have been inflamed. Attendees will learn methods to create endurance in the patient through appropriate herbal, dietary and exercise protocols. Attendees will learn clinical methods to measure endurance. Attendees will understand the physiology behind catabolic and anabolic states, common clinical problems and how to manage patients through diet, exercise, nutrition and herbal supplementation. Attendees will learn how to direct and manage patients beyond symptom reduction with specific nutritional and interpersonal skills. 1 hour of learning Module 3 Brain health and neurodegeneration 1 Attendees will learn how to assess, evaluate and address neurodegeneration and age-related brain burden with nutritional/herbal protocols. 2 Attendees will learn the importance of exercise in managing neurodegenerative health 3 Attendees will learn the specific dietary protocols for assisting Alzheimer’s patients, and the interaction on a neuro-physiologic/immunologic level of differing foods and supplements on the brain. 4 Attendees will understand how to support a concussed patient, what specific foods and supplements should be, and not be, given and why. 5 Attendees will understand the neuro-physiology/immunology behind the concussed patient, the demented patient and those with neurodegenerative disorders. 6 Attendees will learn specific nutritional, herbal and dietary protocols for the above patients 7 Attendees will learn and understand about microglial modulation, cortical spreading depression, neurotransmitter modulation. 8 Attendees will understand the effects of common autoimmune disorders on the brain metabolism and physiology. 3 hours of learning Module 4 Life repair Attendees will learn how to identify patients life burdens through a thorough history Attendees will learn how to uncover patients long term health goals. Attendees will learn protocols for managing high blood pressure, modulating diabetes care, osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, and a broad look at anxiety & depression Attendees will learn how to co-manage a patient with commonly prescribed medications. Attendees will learn how to assess select common genetic burdens, single nucleopolymorphisms SNP’S Attendees will learn how to develop nutritional/diet and herbal support for these SNP’S. 1 hour of learning Module 5 Supportive care Attendees will learn the difference between basic and specific nutritional/diet/ herbal support. Attendees will learn how to distinguish between basic and specific supportive care. Attendees will learn how to guide patients through the process from initial encounter to supportive care giver. Attendees will understand the need for clear mutual goals, patient education Attendees will learn how to set realistic expectations with patients so that both patient and practitioner can succeed. Attendees will learn how to communicate the value of their services Attendees will learn to be aware of changing habits and attitudes in the healthcare arena that can impact our outcomes 1 hour of learning
