  • Adjunctive Nutritional Management of Cancer and Cancer Prevention

    This course highlights the peer-reviewed scientific studies, which illustrate the effect to which diet and targeted nutritional supplements impact important biological targets in the prevention and adjunctive nutritional management of cancer. Attendees will learn the mechanism of action through which certain dietary constituents and targeted supplements can favorably affect signal transduction pathways, activation or suppression of various cell membrane growth factor receptors, cytokine receptors, death receptors, apoptosis mechanisms, immune function, transcription factor synthesis and other biological targets of importance. This program provides practitioners with sound scientific support upon which to provide patients with clinically-relevant and practical nutrition and supplementation advice on cancer prevention, as well as a comprehensive approach to the adjunctive nutritional support of cancer, to help prevent recurrence and metastasis. Practitioners will also understand how certain nutritional interventions can enhance the efficacy of certain chemotherapy drugs, and/or reduce the side effects of conventional cancer therapies. Attention to important drug-nutrient interactions regarding classes of chemotherapy drugs is also provided.

  • Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine Assessment and Programs

    Health practitioners recognize that nutrition, exercise and targeted nutritional supplements play an important role in optimizing health status, and are often used in conjunction with medical treatment in the management of many health conditions. This course outlines a comprehensive, systematic and clinically-relevant nutrition and lifestyle assessment, which enables practitioners to make personalized, evidence-based dietary, exercise and supplementation recommendations to their clients. Attendees learn how to quickly and efficiently gather all clinically-relevant data that are essential to a proper nutrition, lifestyle/healthy aging evaluation, which include the individual’s age, gender, dietary patterns, signs and symptoms of nutrient deficiencies, lifestyle factors that deplete specific nutrients, present or recurring health conditions, family history of degenerative health conditions, as well as other important lab findings and other health indicators. The assessment also takes in to account all contra-indications to dietary and supplement recommendations, as well as drug-nutrient interactions, to guard against inappropriate or dangerous nutrition, exercise or supplementation recommendations being made. An understanding of the medical management of common conditions is also included to help practitioners understand medical decision-making processes.In addition, this course also reviews again the baseline blood, urine, and other investigations that the patient should have performed by their family doctor, as a means to achieve In addition, this course also reviews again the baseline blood, urine, and other investigations that the patient should have performed by their family doctor, as a means to achieve a complete understanding of the patient’s health status.
