Syllabus Module Examples
Theories of Aging
This course reviews the best-documented understanding of the aging process, including an investigation into telomeres, damage accumulation, neuro-endocrine clock adaptations, immune function, cross-linking of proteins, mitochondrial dysfunction, and other considerations. Embedded in this course are evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle strategies shown to modulate the aging process at the cellular and neuroendocrine level, with the purpose of understanding how to slow age-related changes and help maximize healthy life expectancy and longevity. As well a detailed look at some unique molecules, such as L-Carnitine, Glutathione, Choline, Melatonin and Hyaluronic acid is included in the program.
Nutritional Medicine and the Nervous System
This course reviews evidence-based dietary, supplementation and lifestyle factors shown to influence brain development (mother and child) and the prevention and complementary management of ADHD and common neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), dementia, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. This course also sheds light on the biology of brain aging along with proactive lifestyle strategies shown to slow brain aging, induce neuronal progenitor cell replication.
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.
