Treating the Causes of Metabolic Disease Using the Functional Medicine Approach - Free!

January 23, 2017

Sponsored by:

Shilpa Saxena, MDThe emerging connections between inflammation, insulin resistance, and oxidative stress in Cardiovascular Disease, Hypertension, and Endothelial Dysfunction lend to new approaches in prevention and the successful management of patients using the Functional Medicine approach.

Shilpa Saxena, MD, runs a successful medical practice in Florida, where as a primary care provider she integrates nutrition, lifestyle, appropriate supplementation, and innovative practice management techniques to address her patients with metabolic risks. This webinar session will provide insight into how she uses the Functional Medicine Matrix model to identify the unique areas of clinical concern and in turn, how she uses that knowledge to focus in on the targeted concerns for each patient’s cause of metabolic disease.

The webinar will introduce participants to the functional medicine perspective as it relates to Cardiometabolic disease.  Participants will be informed regarding the opportunity to learn more on this topic both at IHS through Dr. Houston’s presentations and, if they chose to take a deeper dive, into IFM’s Cardiometabolic Advanced Practice Module in March.
