All subject matter in this program has been incorporated into the 2nd and 3rd year nutrition and biochemistry courses at The Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College.
Topics Covered & Duration 3 hours Recent Studies: Osteoarthritis/Autoimmune/Prostate Cancer/Breast Cancer/ Preventing Cancer Recurrence
• A review of the recent studies showing positive outcomes for patients with conditions who were treated with various dietary or supplement interventions • An explanation of the biochemical mechanisms through which these results were attained will be included in the discussion 2.5 hours Recent Studies: Mild Cognitive Impairment/Alzheimer’s disease/Diabetes
• A review of the recent studies showing positive outcomes for patients with conditions who were treated with various dietary or supplement interventions
• An explanation of the biochemical mechanisms through which these results were attained will be included in the discussion 2.5 hours Parkinson’s disease/ALS/MS/Mental Health/Concussion/New Adverse Drug Effects and Nutrient Interactions/ Pharmacogenomics and Nutrigenomics
• A review of the recent studies showing positive outcomes for patients with conditions who were treated with various dietary or supplement interventions • An explanation of the biochemical mechanisms through which these results were attained will be included in the discussion
• A review of recent adverse drug effects and drug-nutrient interactions
• Explanation of science behind pharmacogenomics, nutrigenomics and genetic testing for disease. 2. Learning Objectives This program provides chiropractors with a research update regarding recently published research of importance in the adjunctive clinical management of a large number of common health conditions. The education derived from this seminar equips chiropractor to utilize evidence-based dietary, exercise and supplementation interventions that enhance the efficacy of chiropractic management in patients who have the conditions discussed in this program, and in some cases to help patients with a strong family history of certain health conditions implement strategies to help prevent a particular health condition. Attendees will increase the competency and understanding of the emerging use of pharmacogenomics and nutrigenomics in drug and supplement prescribing practices, and be able to avoid making supplement recommendations where drug-nutrient interactions have been shown to produce adverse health effects.
