Nutritional Medicine: Nutrition Update 2018
As author of the widely popular Nutritional Medicine textbook, Dr. Alan Gaby has dedicated his career to investigating the interplay between nutrition and health outcomes. In this 2-hour lecture, he presents compelling research and clinical pearls surrounding the role of common foods in disease management, the efficacy and safety of strict dietary changes with chronically ill patients, and the use of other nutritional interventions–such as probiotics, vitamin supplementation, single amino acids, and potent antioxidants–with a multitude of health conditions.
The material presented in this lecture is designed as an update to the research and clinical advice presented in the last publishing of Nutritional Medicine, creating a valuable resource for both owners and non-owners of the textbook alike.
- Explore recent research on the use of dietary modifications for the prevention or treatment of common medical conditions, including osteoporosis, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic urticaria, and psoriasis
- Investigate the use of nutritional supplements for the prevention or treatment of common medical conditions including cardiovascular disease, depression, congestive heart failure, fibromyalgia, addictions, and functional abdominal pain
- Discuss potential adverse effects of specific nutritional supplements and on the influence of nutritional deficiencies and nutritional supplements on lab test results
- Incorporate a wider array of dietary modifications and nutritional supplements into clinical practice
