Description

2009 Chemical Sensitivities on DigiVision :: 23 Lectures, 2 Full Days

This course will provide the practitioner with new diagnostic and treatment modalities to help improve treatment outcomes in a safe and cost-effective manner for many complex patients suffering from chemical sensitivities. You will learn to perform quantitative testing for chemicals, and how to test hymenoptera venoms, latex, and for antibiotic sensitivity. Also, how to utilize comprehensive treatments for chemical sensitivities: avoidance, nutritional, detoxification, sauna/heat, depuration, chelation of heavy metals, immunotherapy where applicable, etc.

Educational Objectives:

  • Review the basic principles of toxicology, homeostasis and environmental medicine;
  • Contrast the mechanisms behind chemical toxicity and chemical sensitivity;
  • Discuss the mechanisms of detoxication and detoxification;
  • Describe the manifestations of chemical toxicity and sensitivity from multiple chemicals such as pesticides, solvents, and heavy metals in major biological systems, including neurotoxicity and immunotoxicity;
  • Take a home and work history and perform a physician examination to assess chemical injury and toxicity;
  • Recognize the scope of indoor and outdoor air pollution, and food and water pollution;
  • Discuss the available methods for detecting chemical contamination of the environment;
  • Assess the patient for biomarkers of the effects of toxic exposures on various biological systems;
  • Perform quantitative testing for chemicals, and how to treat hymenoptera venoms, latex, and for antibiotic sensitivity;
  • Utilize comprehensive treatment for chemical sensitivities: avoidance, nutritional, detoxification, sauna/heat, depuration, chelation of heavy metals, immunotherapy where applicable, etc;
  • Utilize psycho-neurological assessments and treatments for the effects of neurotoxicity;
  • Benefit from illustrative case study examples for chemical sensitivities that stress interactive discussion between faculty and attendees.
