Addressing the Underlying Causes of Fatigue – Digging Deeper for Clinical Solutions 

Part I: Finding & Addressing the Fundamental Causes of Fatigue – 12 CE DC/8 Nutrition

Fatigue, a common symptom seen by clinicians every day, presents a clinical dilemma because there are so many possible underlying causes. This seminar will provide the clinician a step-by-step guide to determine and address the most common underlying causes of fatigue, including nutritional imbalance, adrenal fatigue, mitochondrial dysfunction, inflammation, gastrointestinal imbalances, insulin resistance, thyroid imbalances and medications.  Specific protocols, including testing and test interpretation; dietary and supplemental recommendations; and lifestyle therapies to address each underlying imbalance will be explained so that each provider has the tools they need to design and implement a plan of action that can help their patients correct and eliminate their underlying causes of fatigue.

Many case studies will be presented to help the practitioner understand how to implement these strategies in practice so that providers are ready to go when they get back to the office. In addition, we will review techniques on how to structure office visits and manage patient flow to maximize results and income

Impairment Rating: Updates and Recertification – 12 CE DC

The AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment 6th edition defines an innovative new international standard for impairment assessment.

Hemp: Exploring the Endocannabinoid System in Health & Disease – 4 CE DC/4 Nutrition

One of the most important medical achievements in recent history has been the discovery of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) - an intricate network of receptors and signaling molecules (endocannabinoids) found in the brain, immune system and throughout the entire body. From a global perspective, the ECS is focused on maintaining overall health, balance and wellbeing (homeostasis) and may be viewed as a master adaptogenic system that is involved in all physiological functioning in the body. Research has demonstrated the ECS is intimately involved in our metabolism, neurological, cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and musculoskeletal systems as well as modulating communication among organs. While our bodies naturally produce internal cannabinoids (endocannabinoids) that influence various receptors, deficiency states do exist and are linked to numerous conditions influenced by inflammation, stress, anxiety and brain health. The good news is that many of these conditions respond to plant-based phytocannabinoids and hemp is the major source. 

This lecture provides a glimpse into this critically important and ignored physiological system and the clinical relevance of hemp-based phytocannabinoids.
