Part of integrative cancer care involves practitioners continuing to recommend proper diets and lifestyle measures, still two of the best preventative measures of cancer. Additionally, providers must remain keen to new discoveries that botanicals, possibly more than conventional drugs, may be able to target chemo-resistant cancer stem cells. Even when a patient responds well to conventional treatment, cancer stem cells can mark a return of tumors even more aggressive than the original. However, recent explorations with integrative approaches to cancer, including scientific research shows promise against cancer stem cells, may provide patients and practitioners alike with better and truly effective treatment options.

The Importance of Dysbiosis in the Upper GI Tract
This webinar discusses the science, animal models, and clinical research elucidating the gut-brain axis and the impact of the gut microbiota and specific probiotic strains on mood and mental well-being. In addition, one psychiatrist will share his experience with the use of a mood-targeted probiotic formulation as adjunctive therapy. Individual findings will be shared in the form of mini case reviews.
Presented by: Jeffrey Bland, PhD, FACN, FACB, CNS
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: Ashley Koff, ND
MyPlate, BMI, lab, and genetic tests, oh my! While helpful, these tools don’t provide the integrative practitioner with the information needed to build a patient’s better nutrition plan. Today, we need better tools to get better outcomes.
Total Gut Restoration: How to Heal the Gut in 3 Simple Steps
Presented by: David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, ABIHM
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.
