Managing a Systems Approach to Inflammation: Next Generation of ProResolving Solutions
September 20, 2022 2:15 – 3:15pm ET ADD TO CALENDAR
Underlying inflammation is well accepted as a key contributing factor to compromised health states. The development of inflammation can be the result of a compromised sequence of responses across multiple systems and influencers, and its progression is rarely only symptomatic. This system dysfunction in the body can contribute to an acceleration of underlying inflammation across the network of the central nervous and metabolic systems. While SPMs (specialized pro-resolving mediators) are now well known to support the healthy activation of the inflammatory resolution process, new technology can now deliver a next generation of very specific forms of SPMs. This ability to more effectively target and resolve inflammation is a new clinical advantage. Recent clinical studies have revealed that the DHA-derived pro-resolving mediators can have condition specific benefits and provide greater improvements than full-spectrum non-specific mediators. Additionally, synergistic and complementary cross-system responses are achieved with a combination of omega-3/DHA plus the vegan-derived DHA specific resolvins in a way that optimizes activation of the endocannabinoid system. Clinical guidelines and protocols will be discussed to address a number of major health issues to improve outcomes. These will range from cardiovascular health issues to healthy stress responses, select women’s health issues and responses to pain.
