Navigating Methylation in Clinical Practice: Hormones, Neurotransmitters and Immunity

*The course has been approved for 6.0hrs of CE through OBNM of which 1.25 will be in pharmacy.

Does the whole epigenetic and methylation discussion have you confused and overwhelmed?  Are you tired of patients or other practitioners asking for your opinion or potential recommendations for epigenetic therapy? Many people feel as though they are fumbling on the dance floor because they recognize that the bench knowledge doesn’t necessarily translate to bedside therapy.  This inconsistency has made many people feeling as though they have two left feet.

Let us help you navigate the methylation dance and break down the steps to provide more rhythm in your practice. Join us for a day’s workshop on June 18th, 2016 for specific insight and key methods of evaluating cases and tangible approaches to methylation. Maybe your level of knowledge has grown or maybe it is just forming around epigenetics.  Regardless of where you are on the dance floor, the world of epigenetics can be better navigated.  We will be covering the role of epigenetic expression in reference to hormones, neurotransmitters and pharmacotherapy.  Cases will be provided during the session and you will also receive hands on support with your most difficult cases.  So come prepared with questions and specific cases for us to enhance your clinical dance skills.

Course Description: Methylation helps to explain the epigenetics of various chronic diseases including neurological, hormonal and immunological disturbances.  The area of methylation is expansive, but key enzyme variations will be discussed that play a large role within chronic disease states.  Current supportive literature and research will be shared to enhance specific genetic variations though lifestyle support, homeopathy, nutrition, pharmacognosy and pharmacotherapy.  The session will consist of lecture and case based learning as well as case discussions.
