Dietary Needs of the Cognitively Impaired

Cognitive impairment encompasses deficiencies in early development as well as neurological decline that is age-related. Both pathways may be impacted by nutrient deficiencies that suppress neuronal development. While enhancing the diet with supplements would seem to be a simple fix, understanding deficiencies in nutrient absorption lends some clarity as to why this strategy may not solve the problem.

Nutrigenomics and Precision Lifestyle Medicine

Presented by: David Brady, ND, DC, CCN, DACBN, IFMCP, FACN

While complex chronic disease is growing at epidemic proportions in the Western industrialized counties, clinical medicine is generally at a loss stem the tide of this epidemic. Big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence presents great hope in unraveling some of the causes by analyzing connections between specific patterns involving genomics, microbiomics, proteomics, and metabolomics and the development of specific disorders. However, big-data is complicated and involves massive numbers of variables and complex networks. How does a clinician make any sense of this emerging information and leverage it in their clinical approach to complicated patient cases? This presentation will look at some of these issues from a practicing clinician’s perspective and will focus on how to parse through and curate meaningful genomic information (SNPs) utilizing a state-of-the-art medical informatics platform, including the deciphering of complex multi-SNP network mappings.

Mast Cell Activation Syndrome: The Interplay between Immunity and Neuroinflammation

Presented by: Tania Dempsey, MD

This session will discuss the role of mast cells and how they are an important component of the innate immune system. Emerging research supports the role of mast cells in the adaptive immune system as well. Mast cells are both sensors and effectors in communication among nervous, vascular, and immune systems. They interact bi-directionally with the nervous system. They are found on the brain side of blood vessels adjacent to astrocytes and microglia and are involved in crosstalk with the various components of the nervous system while also maintaining their role in the immune system. Autoimmunity and Neuroinflammation are two major consequences of aberrant mast cell activity.

Testosterone in Men: Why Levels Are Low and Treating With Natural Therapeutics

Presented by: Geo Espinosa, ND, L.AC, IFMCP, CNS

Low levels of testosterone combined with higher than normal estradiol levels is a leading contributor to cognitive dysfunction, cardiovascular disease, and prostate cancer in men. Despite the availability and growth of bioidentical hormone treatment (BHT) clinics throughout the country, the clinical approach should be aligned with the naturopathic principle: identify and treat the cause.

Addiction in LGBTQ+ Communities and Crystal Methamphetamine Use Among Gay Men

Presented by:
Petros Levounis, MD, MA

Reflecting sweeping changes in the understanding of gender and sexuality over the past decade, this session will provide an informative and affirming discussion of addiction treatment for clinicians working with patients of diverse gender and sexual identities. The session will focus on the re-emergence of crystal methamphetamine among gay men. Methamphetamine use has grown increasingly prevalent over the past decade, and fentanyl-contaminated methamphetamine has led to a significant increase in overdose deaths. Though no FDA-approved medications exist yet to treat methamphetamine use disorder, new research has demonstrated patient success with culturally sensitive, safe, and effective treatments.

This presentation was recorded at the 2022 Integrative Healthcare Symposium Annual Conference.

Environmental Toxins, Part 2: Survival Strategies To Deal With Four Of The Most Damaging Pollutants

Presented by: Lyn Patrick, ND

The majority of the 126 pollutants found in everyone are non-persistent compounds with relatively short half-lives. Air pollutants, bisphenols and phthalates are in this category. For these three compounds avoidance is the first step, followed by reversal of tissue damage. Perfluorocarbons are persistent and are probably the most difficult pollutant to move out of the body. Avoidance methods for these four pollutant classes will be discusses along with the most effective means of reversing pollutant-induced tissue damage. Depuration strategies for perfluorocarbons will also be addressed.
