More providers todayare seeing and treating patients with obesity, morbid obesity, glucoseintolerance, insulin resistance, diabetes, dementia and cardiovascular diseasetoday. Out of an obesity epidemic came a diabetes epidemic, out of a diabetesepidemic – we are seeing a very serious dementia epidemic. A dietary plan or nutrition therapy for thesepatients could prove to be a less expensive and more effective approach thataddresses all of these disease we are seeing on the frontlines of medicine.
Theepidemic of cardiac and chronic inflammatory diseases is rampant. Traditionalallopathic approaches are confusing, serve to band-aide the problem, and areinsufficient to address the complex nature of these diseases, many of which arerelated to a poor match between nutrition, lifestyle choices and genetics. Anunderstanding of the relationship between the Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) gene,(which transports fat and cholesterol) and nutrition may provide greaterinsight into how a gene-supportive environment can promote optimal cell health.Utilizing an individual integrative medicine approach which uses and an APO Egene specific anti-inflammatory nutrition plan to create a gene supportiveenvironment for optimal health can be a critical and effective tool.
Target Audience: Allopathic,alternative and integrative medicine primary care providers, medicalspecialists, registered dieticians, exercise physiologists, physicaltherapists, pharmacists, psychotherapists, certified personal exercisespecialists. Objectives:Afterattending this presentation, the participant will be able to: Describethe role diet has as a therapeutic tool for heart disease, glucose intolerance,insulin resistance, diabetes, hypertension and obesity.
