Fifty percent of Americans have at least one chronic disease, and it is estimated that 75% of healthcare costs go toward management of these diseases. Cellular and metabolic dysfunctions inherent to the pathophysiology of chronic diseases involve chronic inflammation, immune system dysfunction, and damage from oxidant stress.
During this webinar, we will review the scientific literature around the causes of chronic disease, how to use genetic testing to identify individuals who may be more susceptible to complex chronic diseases, and examine the role of advanced nutritional testing to guide creation of a therapeutic care plan for those with known risk factors.
In this webinar you will learn about:
— Assessing risk: Chronic disease is complex and warrants deeper understanding of the pathophysiology of underlying causes.
— Finding solutions: Use of advanced laboratory testing supports assessment of a patient’s risk for chronic disease.
—Helping the complex patient: Crafting a care plan that incorporates nutrition and fitness can work to mitigate disease risk.
