GIG HARBOR, Wash., Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Metagenics Healthcare Institute for Clinical Nutrition (www.mhicn.com) announces a special clinically focused preconference session, The Clinical Nutrition Management of Chronic Diseases, during the 2016 Annual Integrative Healthcare Symposium in New York City. This session will present data and insights on the clinical resolution of chronic inflammation and return to homeostasis. This novel, evidence based approach differs from previous clinical methods that merely blocked or suppressed inflammation. Current research shows blocking the immune response actually hinders the body's innate ability for resolution through specific metabolic influences, and allows inflammation to become chronic, and in some cases, systemic.
Innovative clinical insights on resolving inflammation vs simply blocking it will be discussed during this exclusive event addressing a number of different chronic health issues. Of particular interest will be the emphasis on 'inflammaging', and the unique inflammatory complications that accompany the aging process. Dr. John Troup, CSO, Metagenics states, "an individual's vulnerability or resilience to inflammaging is influenced by many factors including nutrition, adiposity, genetic status and environmental insults and can result in poor health outcomes over time including frailty."
This special MHICN preconference at the 2016 Integrative Healthcare Symposium will address how healthcare providers can integrate targeted interventions to personalize management strategies and optimize patient health outcomes in chronic disease states. Presentations from leading authorities will include topics on novel medical nutrition approaches on cognitive health, probiotics and the gut-brain axis, the microbiome's influence on the brain and behavior as well as describing the critical role nutrition plays in genetic expression and specific health conditions. Faculty for this event include: John Troup, PhD, Dale Bredesen, MD, PhD, Joan Claria, PhD,
Mark Lyte, PhD, Nikky Contractor, PhD, Tasneem Bhatia, MD and Jennifer Stagg, ND.
This preconference event is being held on Wednesday, February 24, 2016 from 8am – 5 pm at the New York Hilton, Midtown, New York City, NY. Online registration for preconference only: http://www.ihsymposium.com/annual-conference/preconference/
