Many of our patients already have had genetic testing done in order to understand their own SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms or “snips”). We can use this information to more easily tailor our plans for hormone balancing in women, ‘cutting to the chase’ so that each plan conforms to the individual we’re working with.

Emerging research in epigenetics and nutrition is catching up to the ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine that conceptualized a unity of function between nervous system, digestion and immune resilience. This session will discuss the relevance of optimizing neuro-gastro-immune unity before, during, and after pregnancy in quality of long-term health. Using case studies, practical applications that employ both functional medicine and Chinese medicine will be discussed.

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main psychoactive component of cannabis, was licensed and approved for the treatment of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting in 1985. Due to the significant barriers to studying the potential therapeutic effects of the parent botanical, the medical literature does not support the strong anecdotal impression that cannabis itself is effective for this indication. Cannabis is also the only antiemetic agent that is also purported to be an appetite stimulant that is also a useful attribute in patients with malignant diagnoses.
Approaches to Utilizing Clinical Nutrigenomics in Practice

Inflammation can manifest in multiple areas of the body. Within each of these areas, inflammation exists on a spectrum, from absent to mild to moderate to extreme—they each have their own inflammation spectrum. This session will explore lowering inflammation by customizing diet and lifestyle to eliminate what is increasing inflammation and add what fights inflammation.
This webinar will discuss the science and the supporting evidence behind use of a probiotic strain to support breast health, lactation comfort, and infant immunity.

This session offers an overview of peripheral versus centralized pain and how pain presentations are unique to the individual. Clinicians will also learn how the Functional Medicine Timeline and Matrix tools can be employed to gather and organize clinical information factors that can underlie the progression of peripheral to centralized pain.
