This seminar is CE APPLIED for 8 CE hours
Staff/Student Price: 

The purpose of this seminar is to understand brain health and physical energy from both a preventive and support-after-decline perspective. We will review daily stresses that impact brain health and energy such as exposome exposure, food type and quality, dental stressors and others. Then we will review homeostatic support for brain health and energy production, including supporting mitochondrial health, dysglycemia, chronic immune challenges, and autoimmune reactivity. Then we will move into more detail about brain function, including literature reviews of vital functions such as the glymphatic system, to support clinical approaches to preventive and supportive care. Throughout the seminar, we will look at prevention as well as support when brain health and/or energy production are under stress. The goal of the seminar is for attendees to have an in-depth understanding of the current research on the topics of brain health and energy production as well as solid protocols of support for better handling of two of the most common presenting complaints we see each day in our practices.

• The role of endogenous and exogenous toxins on inflammation and fatigue. Role of neurotoxins, electrosmog, radiation, & environmental toxins
• Homeostatic support for brain function, including mechanisms that support cellular function of the nervous system
• The Glymphatic system and sleep quality and impact on brain health and normal aging
• Support for Cognitive Decline & Enhancement
