Today’s Landscape

In the 21st century, two things have become increasingly apparent: first, we are exposed to a more complex array of toxic compounds in our air, water, and food than ever before. Second, it has been recognized that an individual’s ability to detoxify (i.e. biotransform and excrete) toxic substances is of critical importance to overall health. While the concept that toxicants accumulate in the body and are the cause of various health problems has long been a fundamental tenet of traditional healthcare systems around the world, we have learned a great deal in recent years about how toxicants and toxins affect us, where they originate, and how to improve our ability to detoxify in a toxic world. Understanding toxicity and taking practical steps to improve biotransformation and elimination are essential and critical pieces in any integrative approach to your patients’ health and well-being.

IFM’s Environmental Health (Formerly Detox) Advanced Practice Module

There is persuasive evidence that even low-level toxic exposures contribute to the development of a variety of chronic health conditions, including fatigue, endocrine disruption, and chronic degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s. Given the ubiquitous nature of chemicals in the environment, it is likely that the single exposure model of toxicology is more the exception than the rule. It is therefore critical for clinicians to learn how to assess both exposures and total toxic load to appropriately assess and address each individual’s toxicological situation.

Program Highlights

Our expert educator team reviews the foundational biochemistry and genetics associated with biotransformation pathways, connects organ system dysfunctions to potential toxic exposures, and details the useful laboratory evaluations for evaluating toxicant exposure levels and subsequent physiologic stresses in patients. Once these important clinical connections are made, the team will detail specific treatment approaches. This program also uses a case-based, integrated approach to effectively deliver the tools necessary for clinicians to diagnose and treat the toxic component of their patients’ total health pictures.

Additional Information

Program Highlights

  • CME credit
  • A step toward becoming an IFM Certified Practitioner
  • Course materials: MP4 videos of all presentations as well as MP3audio and PDF downloads.
  • Pre- and post-course interactive videos and webinars
  • More than 18 hours of lectures, Q&A sessions, and discussion (see the “Schedule and Educators” section for a full schedule of topics)
  • Business and Clinical Strategies for Successful Practice Implementation
  • 30-day access to IFM’s Toolkit with more than 430 downloadable clinician resources that can be accessed and used in practice immediately after the course (intake forms, patient handouts, and assessment questionnaires)
  • Opportunities to ask additional questions on a post-conference private Facebook group moderated by IFM faculty
  • Supplement Training Guide with clinician tools: “Brand Quality Checklist” and “Dietary Supplement Ingredients Quality Checklist.”

Clinical competencies to be mastered through the module:

  • Recognize the relationship between systemic disease and toxic exposures through a clear understanding of the pathophysiology of total toxic load and synergistic effects of both toxicants and toxins.
  • Identify diseases and dysfunctions potentially associated with chronic toxicity and specifically recognize the relationships between chronic toxic insult and neurotoxicity, immunotoxicity, autoimmunity, mitochondrial dysfunction, endocrine disruption, and carcinogenesis.
  • Apply the PURE principles for managing patients with toxicity concerns (Pattern recognition, Undernourishment, Reduce toxins, Ensure a safe detox).
  • Integrate screening questionnaires and detox-specific physical exam findings within a functional medicine intake to discover and assess relevant toxic exposures, and to also track individual’s responses to their environments along with therapeutic interventions.
  • Recognize and address the most important antecedents, triggers, and mediators of toxic overload, including impaired biotransformation, dysbiosis, impaired excretion, and nutritional deficiencies.
  • Appropriately apply and interpret reliable laboratory evaluations of toxic load and biotransformative capacity.
  • Develop personalized dietary treatment using the IFM Elimination Diet and Detox Food Plan suites.
  • Apply various nutraceuticals, botanicals, pharmaceuticals, and lifestyle interventions to increase mobilization, biotransformation, and elimination of toxic compounds in the body.

Registration, Participation, and Cancellation Policies

REGISTRATION POLICY

Program materials and CME certificates are delivered to you through your personal IFM online account. For this reason, you may not register multiple people or someone other than yourself. No registrations will be taken after 4:00 pm PT, October 27, 2022.

Participation

Live-stream participation from October 28 – 30 2022, is required for this IFM program. You must participate in the broadcast by logging in to your unique IFM account to receive CME credit and to fulfill IFM Certification Program requirements. Live-stream log-in information is unique and cannot be shared. Those who do not log in through their own IFM account during the live broadcast will be removed from the program and will not receive program materials, recordings, CME credit, or credit toward the IFM Certification Program.

LIVE-STREAM CANCELLATION POLICY

Cancellations must be received in writing no later than 4:00pm PT, October 27, 2022 to be eligible for a refund. Tuition is non-transferable. Failure to log in to the live-stream broadcast with no prior written cancellation will result in complete forfeiture of tuition and the course will not count toward certification (nonrefundable, nontransferable, no exceptions). Program materials are available only to participants. Just as is the case with in-person courses, participation is limited to the paid registrant. Log-in information is unique and cannot be shared.

Cancellation requests must be submitted to Jenniferstroh@ifm.org or 253.661.3065. IFM will reply with a written acknowledgement.

My registration for the Advanced Practice Module (APM) signifies that I have read and agreed to IFM’s cancellation policy found above. My participation in the APM is not a substitute for any licensing requirements that may be applicable to me and does not independently authorize me to render care, prescribe regimens, or prescribe medications or supplements.

Although we are confident that the quality of this program will be outstanding, there may be occasional interruptions due to the nature of online streaming. All recordings of the educational sessions will be provided after the course.

We ask that you understand the nature of the internet and refrain from unnecessary comments in the chat regarding your internet issues, or the issues of others, that may occur. IFM and Digitell are doing the best that they can to deliver this program, and we are confident that the event will be an overall success.

Thank you for your understanding.

Practice Implementation

In each of IFM’s Advanced Practice Modules we have added additional practical information to help you translate the laboratory and nutraceutical recommendations we discussed into action. You have access to two quick-reference guides which summarize condition-specific laboratory assessment and nutraceutical interventions, which will help you efficiently create personalized assessment and treatment plans.
