Summary

Featuring David M. Brady, ND, DC, CCN, DACBN and Todd LePine, MD

The Epidemic of Autoimmune, Lyme, & Stealth Infectious Diseases

  • From children to adults, autoimmune conditions, Lyme disease and co-infections, and various conditions linked to chronic stealth infection are growing in incidence at an alarming rate. While these clinical issues are becoming more widespread there is considerable controversy and confusion on proper diagnosis and management options both within orthodox and complementary medicine. We now have learned through medical research that years before the diagnosis of these conditions is finally made there are clinical clues and laboratory evidence present to either detect or predict the future emergence of overt diseases in these patients. This program will help you to understand the most current evidence related to the etiology of these disorders and how to identity these conditions early and clinically intervene with nutritional, pharmaceutical,and lifestyle interventions in order to alter the pathophysiologic basis of these conditions.

  • All participants will receive a manual containing extensive notes complete with scientific referencing.

  • Selected Topics Covered In This Seminar Include:

  • The rising incidence of autoimmune disorders - How bad is it really?

  • A clinician's perspective on immune dysregulation

  • Mucosal immunity and the importance of the GI environment

  • Autoimmunity - An infectious disease?

  • Molecular mimicry as a contributing cause of autoimmune phenomenon

  • Dietary antigens and autoimmune disease

  • Leaky gut and autoimmunity - Just functional medicine folklore or scientific fact?

  • The hygiene hypothesis of autoimmune disease - Are we too clean?

  • Role of vitamin D and autoimmune disease - Is there really a controversy?

  • Can autoimmune disease be predicted long before clinical symptoms appear?

  • Toxins and immune dysregulation

  • Natural therapeutic agents in autoimmune disease, Lyme and stealth infections

  • Lyme and co-infections - How to detect them - How to treat them

  • Stealth infections and cancer

Most importantly, we'll show you how to put this information to work immediately to help your patients in your practice.
