Description

November 2017 Functional Forum Meetup and Annual Meeting

This month we are hosting a special event with in-person guest speaker Melanie Dorion AGNP. She will be discussing chronic inflammation.

Chronic inflammation has become an epidemic in our modern era and contributes to many chronic illnesses including diabetes, dementia, heart disease and cancer. In 2012, the CDC estimated that half of the U.S. adults, 117 million people, had one or more chronic health conditions and approximately one in four adults had two or more chronic health conditions. The annual costs of these chronic diseases are estimated to be over $2 trillion.

Chronic inflammation is multi-faceted and involves cellular, metabolic and immune dysfunctions to name a few thus requiring a comprehensive management approach. Many imbalances will contribute to chronic inflammation and chronic illness including digestive issues, infections, hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies and emotional/psychological stress. This presentation will focus on chronic inflammation management and assessing dysfunctions in gut health and nutritional deficiencies and introduce therapeutic options to support your patients.

Learning Objectives

  • Review chronic inflammation pathophysiology
  • Review the main areas to assess in chronic illness and chronic inflammation
  • Laboratory testing to support assessment of chronic inflammation
  • Introduce integrative management options for chronic illness and inflammation

Food and light refreshements will be served.
