Nutrition for Parkinson’s Disease

Good nutrition is required for optimal physical health. But how is nutrition linked to neurological health? Which foods are best for people with neurological disease? This online lecture demonstrates how nutrition can contribute to Parkinson’s disease and provides resources to use nutrition therapeutically in people with Parkinson’s and other neurological diseases.

Core Program:

It’s well known that nutrition impacts brain development in pediatric populations. However, there’s a growing literature that demonstrates the direct and indirect role of nutrition on brain health during aging and neurological disease. This lecture course discusses the roll of nutrition and inflammation in neuroinflammation and neuroprotection, with a focus on Parkinson’s disease.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify nutrients and foods related to neuroprotection;
  • Predict symptoms based on immunological profiles;
  • Outline how the brain and immune system impact each other;
  • Summarize how the immune response to food impacts the brain.

Practicum: On-Demand, Self-Paced 2 Hour Course.

Evaluation of student performance: Estimated Effort:  2 hours to complete (video lecture presentation lesson, handout review, quiz).

Psychoneuroimmunology:  How Thoughts Impact Disease

How do our thoughts and moods impact disease? How do infections and diseases change our emotions? Understanding how the immune system interacts with the nervous system, the endocrine system, and the microbiome provides clinicians with a more complete picture of disease.

Lecture Full Description:

How do our thoughts and moods impact disease? How do infections and diseases change our emotions? Understanding how the immune system interacts with the nervous system, the endocrine system, and the microbiome provides clinicians with a more complete picture of disease.

Several systems in the body interact with each other to impact health, yet we often study them in isolation. As we have learned more in each of the fields of immunology, neurology, endocrinology, and psychology, the relationships between these fields has illuminated how they are intertwined. Understanding how the immune system interacts with the nervous system, the endocrine system, and the microbiome provides clinicians with a more complete picture of disease. Moreover, a knowledge of psychoneuroimmunology links modern biomedicine with historical constitutional types and provides variety of therapeutic approaches to a patient.

Learning Objectives:

As a result of this lecture, you will be able to:

  • Describe how the immune system, nervous system, and endocrine system interact
  • Report the relationships between cytokines, neurotransmitters, and hormones
  • Discuss the role of cytokines, neurotransmitters, and hormones in the brain and gut
  • List diagnoses known to have microbiome relationships
  • Suggest treatment possibilities based on PNI and microbiome relationships

Format: On-Demand, Self-Paced Course

Estimated Effort: 2 hours to complete (video lecture presentation lesson, handout review, quiz).

Endocannabinoids, Cannabis and Immunity

Do endogenous endocannabinoids and medical cannabis have the same effect? As medical cannabis becomes legal in more and more states, understanding how it interacts with the immune system is critical. The study of cannabis led to the discovery of the endocannabinoid system. These endogenous neuronal compounds have profound effects on the immune system. This online lecture will discuss the effects of endocannabinoids as well as medical cannabis on immunity.

The research on cannabis effects on the immune system has been slow coming. However, considering that cannabis receptor 2 is primarily on lymphocytes, there is reason to believe that endocannabinoids and cannabis have profound immune effects. Initially, the only studies of cannabis and immunity were only in people with HIV. Recently, studies of healthy individuals have been completed.

This presentation will examine the effects of endocannabinoids on immune cells and cytokines. We will then address how cannabis effects the same cells. Finally, we will look at how cannabis can be used in immune dysfunction, such as that found in pain, autoimmunity, and infectious disease.

Learning Objectives:

As a result of this lecture, you will be able to:

  • Discuss the immunological effects of endocannabinoids
  • Explain how effects of cannabis differ from endocannabinoids
  • Predict cytokine profiles stimulated by cannabis
  • List immunological diseases for which cannabis would be recommended and potential effects

Format: On-Demand, Self-Paced Course. Estimated Effort: 2 hours to complete (video lecture presentation lesson, handout review, quiz).

Beyond Holistic Medicine: The Biological Wisdom of German New Medicine for Practitioners  

In the early 1980’s, a physician made a revolutionary discovery that diseases – from a cold to cancer – are not “caught,” nor are they malfunctions or malignancies. Instead, they are significant biological programs that assist us during times of unexpected distress.

Firmly anchored in our knowledge of embryology, GNM is a new biological science that reshapes our view of all symptoms and diseases.

This course, designed specifically for practitioners, teaches the five biological laws of German New Medicine that explain the cause, the development and the natural healing of diseases and how to use it effectively in a clinical practice.
