This presentation will focus on the revolution that is occurring in genomics and biometrics and how this supports the delivery of Functional Medicine. Specific examples of how new technologies are creating improvements in personalization of health care will be discussed.
Presented by: Elizabeth Boham, MD, MS, RD
“Food first” is one of the key therapeutic approaches that functional medicine practitioners follow when supporting patients who have energy deficits. This session will review the Mito Food Plan and the importance of foods that contain key dietary oils, specific phytonutrients, and nutrients involved in mitochondrial function and cellular energy production. In addition, reduced caloric consumption has been found to enhance longevity and reduce the negative effects of advanced aging and will be discussed.
Presented by: Josh Axe, DNM, DC, CNS
One major point people make when rejecting the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) or Ayurveda is that there are few “gold-standard” studies that sufficiently prove their benefits. But for those of us who understand the practices, TCM and Ayurveda will never be effectively proven this way—they are based on an entirely different concept than nutrient isolations and randomized trials. By considering a person as a unique individual and using available resources to determine his or her needs, you can implement this system as a powerful tool in helping patients achieve total wellness by assigning them the specific herbs, therapies and dietary instructions that relate to their specific body and environment.
When the name of a practice includes the word “traditional,” one cannot be faulted into thinking that it’s entrenched in the past. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), as practiced today, however, is not the same as it was thousands of years ago. While it is founded by ancient principles, it has continued to evolve, change, grow, and adjust to modern needs and understanding.

It has been said that the two most important defining features of humans are the opposable thumb and our unparalleled cognitive abilities. But, as it relates to the latter, our ability to maintain high level cognitive functionality, especially later in life, is clearly under threat. Recognizing that there are indeed operant factors involved in this process takes the narrative to a place of identifying and hopefully subduing these factors with the goal of preserving brain health. This perspective stands in stark contrast to the standard Western medical model that focuses more on targeting the manifestations of the various mechanisms that are involved in disrupting brain function while virtually ignoring the mechanisms themselves.
This presentation will explore these fundamental mechanisms. Beyond reviewing correlative data relating insulin resistance, obesity, hyperglycemia, sedentarity, and other parameters with neurodegeneration, the presentation will provide the latest research indicating specifically how these variables ultimately translate into functional decline.
Finally, implementation of strategies founded on this knowledge base will be presented.
