7th Annual Integrative Medicine for Mental Health Conference
September 29-October 2, 2016—Reston, Virginia

Patients have better outcomes when these causes are successfully addressed and treated through a combination of specialized testing and nutritional therapies, even in combination with traditional approaches.

Functional Medicine Advanced Practice Modules (APMs)
October 28-30, 2016—Hyatt Regency, Chicago, Illinois
"Detox—Understanding Biotransformation and Recognizing Toxicity: Evaluation and Treatment in the Functional Medicine Model." There is persuasive evidence that even low-level toxic exposures contribute to the development of a variety of chronic health conditions, including fatigue, endocrine disruption, and chronic degenerative diseases such as Parkinson's. Given the ubiquitous nature of chemicals in the environment, it is likely that the single exposure model of toxicology is more the exception than the rule. It is therefore critical for clinicians to learn how to assess both exposures and total toxic load to appropriately assess and address each individual's toxicological situation. Our expert faculty team will review the foundational biochemistry and genetics of biotransformation pathways, connect organ system dysfunctions to potential toxic exposures, and detail the available laboratory evaluations useful in working up a toxin-exposed patient. Once these important clinical connections are made, the team will detail specific treatment approaches. This program also uses a case-based, integrated approach to deliver effectively the tools necessary for clinicians to diagnose and treat the toxic component of their patients' total health pictures. For more information, please visit https://www.functionalmedicine.org/.
