Today’s Landscape

During the past decade, convincing evidence has accumulated that conquering heart disease is not simply a
matter of driving serum cholesterol down. In fact, one half of the people who have a heart attack have normal
cholesterol and now low cholesterol is being associated with a significant risk of early cognitive decline. New information is available. Clinicians are no longer limited to using antiquated measures of cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugars as the primary markers of increased risk for cardiometabolic disorders: advanced lipid assays, markers of oxidative stress, inflammation, hormones, and body composition are all providing new opportunities for safer and more effective early interventions to prevent and reverse cardiometabolic disease.

Functional Medicine Advanced Practice Modules® (APM) Cardiometabolic

The module will help clinicians understand the physiology underlying cardiometabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease, new approaches to effective assessments and treatments, and how to integrate these lifesaving tools into practice.

What You Will Learn

Clinical competencies to be mastered through the Cardiometabolic APM conference:

  • Utilize the functional medicine matrix model to develop an effective systems biology organization when taking a cardiovascular medical history.
  • Evaluate the evidence demonstrating the primary mechanisms underlying the relationship between endothelial dysfunction and the progressive development of atherosclerosis.
  • Identify the relationships between chronic stress and the development of dyslipidemias, hypertension, weight gain, and metabolic syndrome.
  • Evaluate and utilize new assessment approaches for identifying chronic inflammation, oxidative stress, autoimmunity, toxicity, and hormonal dysregulation in patients with cardiometabolic dysfunction.
  • Analyze the most practical and useful laboratory assessments and biomarkers necessary to evaluate cardiovascular risks and recognize functional patterns associated with metabolic disease.
  • Evaluate and utilize specific nutrients, phytonutrients, botanicals, pharmaceuticals, dietary plans, stress reduction techniques, and lifestyle interventions to improve the prevention and management of patients with hypertension, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes.

CME Information

Practitioner Testimonials

This APM was the most translatable to my formal medical training. I felt this APM addressed topics that would be the most easily translatable for an existing clinical practice today. I would highly recommend this APM for any clinician who is curious about functional medicine and is ready to dip their toes into the all-encompassing, evidence-based-medicine approach for the next generation in healthcare. It is a deep dive into physiology, pathophysiology, biochemistry, nutraceuticals and more that will not only reignite your passion to practice medicine, but also greatly benefit your patients. A true win-win.

Cardiometabolic APM 2024 Attendee

I had so many WOW moments in this course. I had no idea that so many solutions were available to offer to people, apart from "diet and exercise" And the ability to tailor solutions specifically to patient's issues. I took a different course before this one from a different provider that did not supply any evidence or science behind the solutions, which is why I decided to pursue IFM certification. I feel so much more empowered to help people with functional medicine. Also, it confirmed my reluctance to prescribe statins (unless truly needed)!
