1. Understand the role of mitochondrial dysfunction, oxidative stress, inflammation, and antioxidant depletion in chronic disease
2. Learn about research studies on the connection between tick born disease and mitochondrial dysfunction, oxidative stress, and inflammation
3. Learn adjunctive treatment options for decreasing the underlying pathologic mechanisms in chronic disease
As chronic disease continues to increase, practitioners need new methods for prevention and treatment. Targeting symptoms can work for short-term issues. Understanding the underlying mechanisms involved in development of these illnesses offers long term prevention and treatment strategies. As research focuses more on pathology than symptoms of disease, the interaction between mitochondrial dysfunction, oxidative stress, and inflammation has been repeatedly shown to be a major factor. Luckily integrative medicine has treatments able to support mitochondrial function, combat oxidative stress and inflammation along with improving anti-oxidants in the body.
