Statement of Need
Chronic diseases have become a tremendous burden in industrialized society. The mechanisms underlying many chronic diseases are complex and poorly understood by clinical practitioners. New information is coming out all the time, and it is difficult for clinicians to keep up with the science. It has been noted in recent years that mitochondrial function or dysfunction plays a very important role in a wide range of chronic disease entities.
The role of mitochondrial disorders in cancer, neurological conditions, environmental exposure to toxicants, and other chronic conditions is currently being explored. Strategies for addressing these conditions from the origin of mitochondrial dysfunction is not currently known to most physicians. This has created significant gaps in practitioner knowledge, competence and performance relative to the available information.
The goal of this conference is to bring a great deal of current information to light for attendees regarding mitochondria as a therapeutic target in many chronic disease states. The information presented will better equip attending practitioners with knowledge and skill needed to help prevent chronic disease in their patients, as well as identifying mitochondrial dysfunction and formulating a more comprehensive and effective approach to managing and even eliminating many modern complex chronic disease states.
- Determine normal mitochondrial function and identify the role of mitochondria in human health and physiology.
- Recognize the abnormalities of sleep, hormonal function, infectious conditions, and nutritional deficiencies in the etiologyof chronic fatigue syndrome.
- Recognize the role of alpha lipoic acid in the physiology of mitochondrial function and become proficient in the application of intravenous ALA and low dose naltrexone based on research and clinical case presentation.
- Determine how mitochondrial dysfunction plays an important role in tumorigenesis.
- Define the role that mitochondrial dysfunction, seizures, and other metabolic abnormalities play in autism spectrum disorders and other neurological disorders.
- Consider various laboratory assessments, biomarkers, and treatment approaches as they relate to mitochondrial dysfunction based on the latest evidence.
- Become familiar with the two main mechanisms by which mitochondrial dysfunction occurs and will be able to identify the common signs and symptoms of mercury, cadmium, and lead toxicity due to mitochondrial dysfunction.
- Recognize the difference between naturally acquired immunity and artificial immunization and how the latter affects the immune system in unintended ways.
- Evaluate the relevance of antioxidants in clinical practice.
- Identify the role of mitochondrial dysfunction and damage in bipolar disorder and related psychiatric disorders.
