Today’s Landscape

It is estimated that 25 million to 50 million Americans suffer from autoimmune diseases. Functional medicine teaches that immune imbalance, while often resulting from a genetic disposition, will generally arise in the context of one or more of the following: the habitual consumption of a proinflammatory diet; food allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances; microbial infections; hormonal imbalances; nutritional insufficiencies; and xenobiotic exposure.

Nearly 100 different diseases have been classified as autoimmune in nature, with 40 more suspected. While these conditions tend to be viewed as separate entities, a broader perspective may reveal that shared mechanisms are the underlying cause of these maladies. It is abundantly clear that environmental factors have important parts to play in the underlying etiology. In rheumatoid arthritis, for instance, genetic factors have been shown to be responsible for less than 50% of the risk. This means that environmental factors—and gene-environment interactions—must play a significant role. Despite this understanding, less attention has been focused on determining these other important causal factors.

Functional Medicine Advanced Practice Modules® (APM) Immune

This course will focus on chronic inflammation, systemic influences on the immune system, and the consequent dysfunction that may ensue. The Immune APM will supply you with an in-depth understanding of underlying immune mechanisms and enable you to develop effective interventions even in the absence of a conventional diagnosis.

  • Better diagnose systemic inflammation by recognizing subtle and often overlooked elements in the history and evaluation.
  • Determine the root causes of each patient’s chronic inflammation to personalize treatment.
  • Explain in plain language to patients how immune dysfunction is contributing to their current conditions to help motivate them and improve adherence. 
  • Identify subtle and often overlooked clues on conventional and advanced laboratory biomarkers that indicate inflammation or immune dysfunction. 
  • Develop more personalized treatments for chronic inflammation and immune dysfunction for each patient that include dietary changes, lifestyle modifications, and nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, and botanical treatments.
