Central Sensitivity Syndrome

Sugar Land, TX 77479

7 CE Credits hours applied through Texas Chiropractic College
Dr. Mark Force

As physicians, we have a cohort of patients with chronic and complex health issues that challenge our ability to definitively diagnosis and bring to bear treatment that restores their health. How often have we found ourselves in the uncomfortable position of being unclear how to help a patient through our care and yet, at the same time, unclear of the specialist we culd refer them to who could help?

Research has been consolidating the model of limbic kindling and central sensitivity syndrome (CSS) as the primary physiological phenomenon underlying the syndromes that include fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, chronic fatigue immunodeficiency, myalgic encephalomyelitis, irritable bowel, migraine, multiple chemical sensitivity, post-traumatic stress disorder and others.

Research and clinical experience indicates CSS develops from sufficiently severe and/or chronic stress (physical, chemical, emotional) resulting in degeneration of limbic and associated systems. Chemical intolerance stress is a critical and often overlooked vector for this process. Restoration of allostasis and homeostasis requires assessing and restoring fundamental body systems, such as oxidation/reduction, mitochondrial function, neuron depolarization threshold, neurotransmitters, catabolic/anabolic, xenobiotic chemical metabolism, and autonomic tone.

All of these ideas will be covered in a way that is tangible and understandable. Patient surveys and diagnostic algorithms will be included. The information will be distilled down to a practical and actionable method for you to use in service to your complex and chronic patients immediately.

The modern-day toxic burden and disease: identifying the sources of toxins and assessing exposure

  • Mixed function oxidases – Phase I; conjugation enzymes - Phase II; impaired detoxification and SNPs; latest research on the role of nutrients in detoxification
  • Steps to living a clean life and protocols for toxicant removal
  • Detoxification for patients with chronic illness and comorbidities
  • Managing patients after detoxification: next steps

Each year, more than 4 billion pounds of chemical compounds and pollutants from plastics, pesticides, solvents, heavy metals, medications, and other sources are released into the environment. Eventually, they find their way into our air, soil, food, water supplies, and into our bodies. The human body is well equipped to rid itself of potentially harmful chemicals and pollutants. However, in certain situations, the sheer volume to which humans are exposed can overburden the natural detoxification process—allowing some of these substances to accumulate in tissue. In this presentation, we will take a deeper dive into the recent scientific developments in this area of detoxification as part of clinical practice and learn how to improve patient health through a metabolic detoxification program. This seminar will review the biochemistry and genetic expression associated with the detoxification pathways, with particular focus on (1) modulation of metabolic biotransformation through Phase I and Phase II enzyme induction or inhibition; (2) alkalinization; and (3) heavy metal metabolism. Special emphasis will be given to nutrition, nutrient actives, and botanicals for their influence in these pathways. Furthermore, the incorporation of lifestyle changes will be included as part of the detoxification discussion for a more well-rounded and whole-picture approach to impacting patient health.

Yet four of the most commonly occurring hormone-related dysfunctions can cause many debilitating symptoms that can rob a woman of a healthy and happy life. Dr. Nelson will provide the tools needed to support female patients.

This seminar will provide attendees with a thorough understanding of the physiology of the female reproductive cycle and adrenal function. These systems will be reviewed independently and in context with each other as primary players in the endocrine system along with discussions of the primary hormones produced and the importance of healthy liver function. After thoroughly reviewing the physiology of the reproductive cycle, discussion will include how to support four of the most commonly occurring hormone-related dysfunctions. Seminar objectives include: Observe where cycle deficits may be occurring and how to provide specific herbal and nutritional support; using saliva testing as a viable alternative for assessing cyclical imbalances; understand the physiology of four common hormone dysfunctions using blood, saliva or other conventional testing as adjunct tools; recognize conventional medical interventions for these conditions as well as their potential side-effects; develop appropriate nutritional protocols to support normal physiology and much more!

Tuition is $249 before February 10, 2017, including CEUs, seminar manual, protein shakes, product sample station and breakfast each day with afternoon beverages.

Understanding Genetic Defects in Methylation Pathways
March 18, 19, 2017
Hilton Garden Inn, Mt. Laurel, NJ

Logan University 12 CE Hours Speaker: Dr J Ann Dunn

Topics:

  • Subluxation and Adjustment: Influences of Methylation mutation on structural outcomes
  • Learning an easy-to-use systematic approach to neurologic muscle testing
  • Hands-on practice using the Wholistic Kinesiology flow charts
  • Methylation pathway inter-relationships and critical ties to clinical practice
  • Laboratory tests including blood work and genetic testing protocols
  • Individual SNiP’s (gene mutations) and their clinical effect
  • Identifying SNiP’s relevant to the structural practice
  • Learn where appropriate specific nutritional intervention will decrease inflammation and increase structural stability

Assessment and evaluation of underlying genetic defects through laboratory evaluation and the somatic-visceral reflexes of Wholistic Kinesiology will allow the practitioner to explore new levels of care for chronic spine dysfunction and related visceral/glandular dysfunction.

Dr. J Dunn, one of the pioneers in the application of laboratory genetic testing in clinical practice, will show you how she is successfully using this information in her waiting list practice. Through her experienced use of lecture, flow charts and manuals she will take a potentially challenging subject to learn and have you ready to implement it into your practice on Monday morning! This course can truly transform your style of practice and increase your clinical outcomes!

As you know, methylation pathways are important in detoxification of chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, in the production and removal of adrenal steroid hormones (chronic spinal inflammation), in the absorption and use of critical nutrients such as B12, folic acid and Vitamin D, in the repair of DNA and in energy production and so much more!
