The recent report from the EAT Lancet Commission on Healthy Diets From Sustainable Food Systems makes an excellent case for substantial dietary shifts needed to support both human and environmental health. Integrative practitioners are in an ideal position to help patients make diet and lifestyle changes that could greatly benefit planetary health. The key is how.
The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released data in June 2022 showing that more than 40 percent of adults in the United States reported having COVID-19 in the past, and nearly one in five of those are currently still having symptoms of long COVID. According to the CDC, post-COVID conditions are a range of new, returning, or ongoing health problems that people experience after first being infected with COVID. While most people get better within a few days or weeks, post-COVID symptoms start emerging at least four weeks after the infection. Anyone who was infected, the CDC said, can experience long COVID. And, according to University of California Davis Health, long COVID can affect anyone – young, old, healthy, and those struggling with other conditions. It has been seen in those who were hospitalized with COVID and patients with more mild symptoms.

GenomicInsight™: The clinician’s tool in the practical application of SNP testing in precision medicine
Presented by: Austin Perlmutter, MD, and David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, ABIHM
Fundamental to the practice of medicine is the acquisition and dissemination of the most validated and impactful recommendations for those in our care. But all too commonly, this information goes unheeded. Why? Our modern world is fundamentally reshaping our brains, altering our decision-making towards impulsivity, instant gratification and the type of choices that lead to poor health and unhappiness. The structural and functional wiring of our brains is constantly rearranged by our interaction with the world around us. And this process can either be consciously harnessed for our own benefit or externally manipulated for the benefit of others. This presentation exposes the mental hijacking that undermines each and every one of us, and presents practical tools to help reclaim our ability to make better decisions, strengthen our relationships with others, and maintain healthier habits.
