Nutrition / Neurology

Get at the core biochemical imbalances that cause back/neck pain, disc pain, headaches, cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, osteoporosis, arthritis and most other conditions.

This 12-hour seminar, taught by Dr. David Seaman, will deal specifically with:

Hour 1 - Introduction

  • Time Magazine [and other lay magazines] are up-to-date and focusing on chronic inflammation as the underlying cause of most diseases
  • Signs of chronic inflammation and related sicknesses
  • Palpation method that provides information about chronic inflammation

Hour 2 - Somatic and visceral pain patterns

  • Understanding pain generators
  • Spinal cord confusion and referred pain

Hour 3 - Homeostatic mechanisms run amok (part 1)

  • Innervation of muscles, joints, and viscera
  • How tissue innervation patterns control homeostasis

Hour 4 - Homeostatic mechanisms run amok (part 2)

  • How our biomechanical, psychological, and nutritional lifestyle determines tissue biochemistry and homeostasis
  • Introduction to related disease mechanisms - focus on neurogenic inflammation
  • Connection between neurogenic inflammation and "classic" inflammation
  • "Inflammation" as both a pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory reaction

Hour 5 - Intro to fatty acids and relationship to inflammation

  • Review of saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids
  • Pro-inflammatory n6 polyunsaturated fatty acids
  • Pro-inflammatory trans fatty acids

Hour 6 - How fatty acids reduce inflammation

  • Anti-inflammatory saturated fatty acids
  • Anti-inflammatory monounsaturated fatty acids
  • Anti-inflammatory n3 polyunsaturated fatty acids

Hour 7 - Eicosanoids, cytokines, chronic

  • Inflammation and musculoskeletal conditions
  • Herniated discs
  • Internal disc disruption
  • Facet syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis

Hour 8 - Dietary factors that drive inflammation

  • Inflammatory potential of grains
  • Inflammatory potential of grain-fed - animals
  • Inflammatory potential of soy

Hour 9 - Diet factors that reduce inflammation

  • Anti-inflammatory nature of fruits and veg
  • Anti-inflammatory nature of grass-fed animals and wild game

Hour 10 - Nutritional supplements to reduce inflammation

  • Multi-vitamins
  • Magnesium

Hour 11 - Nutritional supplements to reduce inflammation

  • EPA/DHA 2. Coenzyme Q10

Hour 12 - Dietary factors that drive

  • Inflammation
  • Ginger
  • Turmeric
  • Garlic
  • Bioflavonoids
