WEEK II: Detoxification Strategies
Exposure to xenobiotics, endocrine disruptors and toxicants is ubiquitous in the United States population as documented by the Center for Disease Control database: National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals. This lecture will detail how some of  the top 12 toxicants end up in your patient's bodies and how they cause chronic disease. We will then review the toxicokinetics of these compounds, where they come from, how they are absorbed and excreted and what documented strategies clinicians can use to both increase the elimination of these toxicants and protect individuals who carry a body burden of these chemicals.

WEEK III: A Systems Approach to Cardiometabolic and Insulin Resistance
Insulin resistance is epidemic and cardiometabolic disease is an evident example. We will explore the documented etiology in diet and environmental exposures as well as updated methodologies of diagnosis and a nutritional approach to treatment.
