Unifying Mechanisms of Disease and Missing Links

(and other clinical goodies)(2020 Sessions)


8 years of research in 8 hours

"Saving You Time & Money"






This 1-day lecture covers a wide range of pathophysiological concepts allowing for therapeutic targeting for the utility of translating them into clinical applications, enhancing patient outcomes, and satisfaction.


Understanding of contemporary pathological mechanisms based on cellular biology and perturbations thereof, in some circles known as functional medicine, is the language that unites allopathic and naturopathic medicines. The contemporary mechanism in many instances has been elucidated which allows for a link between traditional medicine and 21st-century medical science. This much allows for increased clinical certainty and perhaps stimulates the critical questions required to help form that so important patient care algorithm.


The lecture will cover approximately 20 main concepts found throughout pathophysiology, sharing with the attendee some of the most contemporary models as related to common clinical presentations and the elements thereof.


From this point of understanding the clinician can base their therapeutic applications within the context of these mechanisms and models ultimately contributing to better patient outcomes and standards of practice.
