2nd International Advanced Integrative Conference

21st Century Metabolic Medicine

Focusing on assessing and treating the Metabolic basis of chronic illness, Cancer and Neurological Disorders using a METABOLIC WHOLE PERSON APPROACH

Genomic Influences on Metabolomics

  • Genomic areas that directly relate to metabolic illness
  • SNP patterns which can epigenetically aggravate in metabolic disorders
  • Nutrigenomic therapies for these patterns

My Evolution into Metabolic Oncology

Diet, Metabolism and Cancer Patients

  • Preventive strategies
  • Therapeutic diets
  • Periodic fasting
  • Special circumstances

Taking Research Synergy to the Clinic

  • Hematologic “salvage” case series
  • Use of diet as prime intervention
  • Novel metabolic protocol for synergy, safety and higher dosing (IV and Oral)
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen with metabolic therapies
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen with oxidative therapies
  • Exogenous Ketones

Metabolic Therapies and the Neurological Patient

  • Basis of brain inflammation
  • Role of a leaky blood-brain barrier
  • Primary therapeutic targets
  • Primary oral therapies for neurological inflammatory disorders
  • Primary IV therapies for neurological inflammatory disorders
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen use in the neurological patient – dosing and troubleshooting
  • Dietary Interventions
  • How to sequence therapies for synergy (Oral / IV / Diet / HBOT etc.)
  • Time tested clinical tips

Metabolism and Cancer – Where the Weak Links Are

  • Metabolic effects on the cancer milieu
  • Metabolism and the active cancer cell
  • Metabolic effects on cancer stem cells

Dietary Manipulation of Metabolism in Cancer

Outlining the metabolic basis for the use of dietary manipulation specifically in cancer therapy.

  • Macronutrients and cancer cells
  • Exogenous ketones
  • Scientific basis for specific dietary therapy

Therapeutic Synergy in Research Models

  • Diet
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen
  • Exogenous Ketones
  • Other agents

Research Basis for Metabolic Triggering in Neurological Inflammation

  • Basis of brain inflammation
  • Role of a leaky blood-brain barrier
  • Primary therapeutic targets

Inflammation & Metabolism – Triggers & Therapy

  • Insulin and Leptin resistance
  • Fatty Liver disease
  • Toxicant exposure and avoidance
  • Ketogenic adaptation
  • Effect of Polyphenolic Compounds on Inflammation

How to Assess and Address Inflammation from a Whole Person Perspective

  • The Use of a Dietary Inflammation Index
  • Specific Practices of Meditation and Exercise to Lower Inflammation

Laboratory Assessment of Inflammation:

  • IL-6, Insulin(fasting/postprandial) Leptin, Adiponectin
  • CRP, HbA1c Liver Enzymes and Liver Function Testing

Case Discussion and Review – Metabolic Medicine

Topics: Using Dietary Intervention in Case Studies

Lowering Toxicant Body Burden and Effect on Body Burden

  • Identify signs, symptoms, and diagnoses in patient cases related to inflammation
  • Identify specific interventions in patients to reverse lab markers of inflammation and improve patient outcome

Dominic D'Agostino, Ph.D.

Dr. Dominic D’Agostino is an Associate Professor in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine Hyperbaric Biomedical Research Laboratory. He is also a Research Scientist at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC). His research focuses on understanding the science and application of hyperbaric oxygen. He also tests nutritional strategies and metabolic-based supplements for neurological disorders, cancer and enhancement of resilience in extreme environments. As an Aquanaut he conducted a broad range of studies in a saturation environment as a NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations (NEEMO 22) crew member. His research is supported by the Office of Naval Research (ONR), Department of Defense (DoD), private organizations and foundations.

Lyn Patrick, N.D.

Lyn Patrick, N.D., entered private practice in Arizona in 1985 and has practiced in integrative clinics in Tucson AZ and Durango CO since that time. She started specializing in environmental medicine in 2001 and is past faculty for the Certification Course in Environmental Medicine. She is a Board member and faculty member for the American College for the Advancement of Medicine (ACAM), lecturing in the area of environmental medicine and metal toxicology and is part of the team that produces the annual Environmental Health Symposium Conference, now in it’s third year. Dr. Patrick is a published author of numerous articles in peer-reviewed medical journals and is a former Contributing Editor for Alternative Medicine Review, a Medlineindexed journal of complementary/alternative medical research. She speaks internationally on environmental medicine, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and other topics.

Larry Cohen, M.D.

When Dr. Cohen graduated from the University of Texas in Austin in 1971, he was already seeing a new perspective on the mind and interrelatedness of all things. While at Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, he further saw the limitations of traditional medicine. After completing his first year of residency in Psychiatry, Dr. Cohen left to work on Indian reservations as a general medical officer for two years. Realizing that he couldn’t go back to the “traditional” tract and complete his residency, Dr. Cohen chose to practice Emergency Medicine (ER) while waiting to go to a comprehensive training program in holistic medicine. In the US at that time, the only holistic program was at the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, Pa founded on the principle of integrating Eastern and Western medicine. There, in the spring of 1980, Dr. Cohen started studying yoga, homeopathy, nutrition, biofeedback, and meditation in an integrated training program under Rudolph Ballantine, MD as well as other MD’s and PhD Psychologists. There, he also conducted research into mind/body medicine at Dana Research Lab, instructed a graduate program through the University of Scranton, and learned to treat all age groups and problems in a total holistic manner.

Paul Anderson, N.M.D.

Dr. Anderson is a recognized educator and clinician in integrative and naturopathic medicine with a focus on complex infectious, chronic, and oncologic illness. In addition to three decades clinical experience he also was head of the interventional arm of a US-NIH funded human research trial using IV and integrative therapies in cancer patients.
He founded Advanced Medical Therapies in Seattle, Washington, a clinic focusing on the care of patients with cancer and chronic diseases and now focuses on clinical collaborations with clinics and hospitals in the US and other countries.

He is co-author of the Hay House book “Outside the Box Cancer Therapies” with Dr. Mark Stengler as well as a co-author with Jack Canfield in the anthology “Success Breakthroughs” and the upcoming Lioncrest Publishing book “Cancer… The Journey From Diagnosis to Empowerment.”.

He is a frequent CME speaker and writer and has extended his educational outreach creating Advanced Applications in Medical Practice (AAMP) CME events in collaboration with FMI Marketing. AAMP is dedicated to bringing next level learning to healthcare professionals to enhance their knowledge and clinical skills. Former positions include multiple medical school posts, professor of Pharmacology and Clinical Medicine at Bastyr University and Chief of IV Services for Bastyr Oncology Research Center.
