Level I Genomics

*Meeting the Clinical Future

Rapid changes in genomics, medical technology, medically oriented consumer electronics, biomaterials, artificial intelligence and tissue engineering are pointing the way to a radically different future for medicine. In addition to changing the way diagnoses are made and therapies applied, these developments will create a major shift in the traditional patient-physician relationship. The focus is moving from physician-centered to patient patient-centered medicine. Physicians who are not prepared for this disruption may discover that their opportunities for growth are significantly diminished.

Key Compounding Pharmacy through its Key2Health Professional Webinar Series is helping to foster awareness of these new developments and evolve their practices to meet the new clinical future. Through its blog, podcast and other media, Key Compounding Pharmacy is helping empower patients to navigate this new medical landscape.

Key2Health Professional Webinars is a series of accredited webinars presented by leading physicians and designed to help you build your clinical practice. All webinars are recorded and available for purchase from our webinar archives. Continuing education credits for these webinars are also available to pharmacists via the Washington State Association of Pharmacists (WSAP).

Paul S. Anderson, ND – Key2Health Genomic Webinar Program Chair

Paul-Anderson-updatedDr. Anderson has spent the past twenty years involved in teaching and research into biochemical physiology as well as that same time period in patient care. Just because “SNP Analysis” is a seemingly new thing do not think that some experienced physicians have not been employing these therapies for quite a long time. The ability to assess the genome is simply a wonderful addition to our understanding of the process! Dr. Anderson will use his extensive teaching, clinical and research background to bring these sessions to clinically relevant life.

Genomic Medicine: What is it? How do we test it? And what clinical applications can we make with it?

This session is the first of a six-part series that will break down this enormous topic into portions that any clinician can use to understand and incorporate this vast topic into their practice. The goal of this format is to use each session to build a progressive understanding of the topics involved while having time to process and implement the information.

Abstract

In this presentation Dr. Anderson will set the stage and introduce all of the players necessary to understand the inner workings of genomic medicine. This is not the typical “introduction” where common knowledge information is read to you! This presentation is designed to allow the participant to become knowledgeable with the various parts of the system so that they can quickly move to a working knowledge of the topics.

Genomic Medicine: What is it?(1.5 CE)
Genomic Medicine: What is it?(1.5 CE)
Price: $59.00
Learning Objectives

  • What is a SNP and how can it affect health?
  • What ways to assess related signs and symptoms do we have?
  • What testing methods exist and how do I use them?
  • What kind of timeline would be reasonable for different presentations?
  • Where do I start / or what do I do next clinically?

Methyl cycle and Related Pathway Abnormalities-Part I & II Combo

Methylation is more than just “MTHFR”. We all probably realize this but when one looks into the number of crossover points and related pathways as well as tissue specific activities it can become overwhelming. In this presentation Dr. Anderson will describe the “big picture” of the methyl and related cycles and their tissue specific locations. Then he will begin the process of placing appropriate therapeutics in their correct place in those cycles and tissues.

Methyl cycle and Related Pathway Abnormalities – Assessment and Treatment (3.0CE)
Methyl cycle and Related Pathway Abnormalities – Assessment and Treatment (3.0CE)

Detoxification: How Genomics affect it? How to use it to augument current therapies?

This session is the fourth of a six-part series that will break down this enormous topic into portions that any clinician can use to understand and incorporate this vast topic into their practice. The goal of this format is to use each session to build a progressive understanding of the topics involved while having time to process and implement the information.

Detoxification: How Genomics affect it? (1.5 CE)
Detoxification: How Genomics affect it? (1.5 CE)
Price: $59.00
Abstract

Most clinicians know (if only from the memories of Pharmacology classes) that detoxification is controlled by genomic predicates. “CYP” SNP’s have long been studied in drug metabolism to provide one example. All phases of biological detoxification are affected by genomics and thus all areas of detoxification support can be impacted by these genomic abnormalities. This presentation will take both a “top down” as well as a clinical “bottom up” look at the places most clinically relevant to genomic medicine and detoxification.

Learning Objectives

  • How do Phase 1&2 interact, and what SNP’s modulate them?
  • How about Phase-3 and accessory pathways as well?
  • What areas modulate chemical detoxification versus metal detoxification?
  • Clinically how do I troubleshoot a fast “Phase” detoxifier versus a slow or mixed one?
  • How do I incorporate this into my current depuration and detoxification programs?

Genomic Abnormalities and core organ function deficits: Effects on Immune System, Mitochondria, Vitamin D and A function, Vision, Thyroid, GI and other primary body functions

This session is the fifth of a six-part series that will break down this enormous topic into portions that any clinician can use to understand and incorporate this vast topic into their practice. The goal of this format is to use each session to build a progressive understanding of the topics involved while having time to process and implement the information.

Genomic Abnormalities (1.5 CE)

Price: $59.00
Abstract

As we can now locate and assess SNP defects that change the genome and epigenetics we also can assess and treat these areas for both preventive and disease specific outcomes. Do you ever wonder why some patients get “every infection” and their partner doesn’t? Why some take a dose of a drug and have horrible side effects and some do not? Why some families have thyroiditis or maculopathy “running in them” and others don’t? It is all of course multifactorial but it is also the interplay between the genome and epigenome. In this presentation Dr. Anderson will point out the signs, symptoms, family history and SNP’s to look into. Where early detection is critical, and how to clinically manage these areas.

Learning Objectives

  • These and other areas will be discussed:
    • Immune System – Allergy and Autoimmunity
    • Digestive System
    • Mitochondria
    • Vitamin D and A function
    • Vision
    • Thyroid
  • Clinical management and troubleshooting will be outlined for each area
“Final Project” – Going through a genomic report from “A to Z”

This session is the sixth of a six-part series that will break down this enormous topic into portions that any clinician can use to understand and incorporate this vast topic into their practice. The goal of this format is to use each session to build a progressive understanding of the topics involved while having time to process and implement the information.

“Final Project” – Going through a genomic report from “A to Z”(1.5 CE)
Price: $59.00
Abstract

This is equivalent to a “capstone” project in graduate school. We have spent the past five sessions dissecting the meaning of each part of the patients potential results and now we will see how it looks in a real life example with all the pieces in place. Dr. Anderson will view an 18 page genetic report and categorize and prioritize the results. Then he will match those results to therapeutic interventions.

Learning Objectives

  • Top down look at the big picture and how to relate that to the patient
  • Which categories come first and why
  • What are the time frame expectations for the “roll-out” of therapies
  • What cautions and follow up criteria should you have with the patient

Thank you for participating in Key2Health Nutri-genomics Series. Here,  we would like to invite you to the next level of genomic medicine mastery.

You have probably noticed that your chronically ill patients are presenting to you sicker and more difficult to effectively treat using tried and true methods that worked ten years ago. Genomic medicine is an emerging frontier the application of which can help you understand your patients’ pathology on a deeper level, and use that information to implement more effective therapies and treatment plans. Genomics profiles can be difficult and painstaking to interpret, however, and you may be overwhelmed by where to start, especially when applying information to complex cases. Lucky for you, Dr. Paul Anderson, NMD has created these webinars to aid you step by step in implementing Genomic Medicine into your practice model with his trademark humor and encyclopedic knowledge.

Tolle totum: Treat the Whole Person.

Your patients do not present as just one organ system and you will certainly benefit most by purchasing the original series, Introduction to Clinical Genomics 9.0 CE Price: $299 in its entirety with updated 2017 bonus webinar, although not 100% essential but Level I will give  an excellent background to Level II series as Dr. Anderson plans to use that information as a jumping off point for the webinar sessions.

Epigenetics: How to think about it (1.5 CE)
Price: $59.00
Learning Objectives

In this session we want to focus on two clinically relevant aspects of the use of genomics and SNP assessment in clinical practice:

  • How to employ key areas in tools you already are clinically using to assess a patients epigenetic load.
    • Patient and family history
    • Toxic exposures / Drug exposures and reactions
    • Dietary and other intake history
    • And more!
  • How to use the new longer SNP reports (such as the long version of “Sterling’s App”) and be able to read and discuss them quickly.
Immunology and genetics: Where to look on the SNP profile for immune affecting genetics and what you can do about them

Do you ever look at a patient history with autoimmunity or chronic infections and wonder if genomic assessment could help? Ever look at those parts of a SNP report talking about “IgG” or IgE” SNP’s and want to know how those things may fit into better assessment and treatment? In this session we will look at the relative value of those SNP areas and more, as well as discuss from actual cases how those results fit into a broader and more effective assessment.

Price: $99.00
Abstract

In this Webinar on neurotransmitter  function that are affected by known SNP’s, he will focus on clinical implications of neuropathology and immune-imbalance.  The overview of the central nervous system involves the synthesis, biological application, and metabolism of neurotransmitters.  The SNP groups can create faster or slower translations in these key areas resulting in physiological  imbalances. By adjusting the imbalance between excitatory and inhibitory pathways caused by SNP’s we can induce a better balance in the neurochemistry. The effectiveness of the CNS function can often be  achieved by knowing these SNP effectors.

Focused topics including; Serotonin, GABA-Glycine, Catecholamines, NMDA classes and much more.

Learning Objectives

  • These and other areas will be discussed:
    • Balance/Leveling Neurotranmitters
    • Catecholimines
    • Histamine Non CNS activity
    • glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD)
    • GABA -Glycine
    • SNP injured neuropathway
  • Clinical management and troubleshooting will be outlined for each area

A Neurophysiologic Approach to Eliminating Chronic Pain

Dr. David Hanscom, a spine surgeon in Seattle, has developed a patient-tested, revolutionary new program to eliminate the suffering of long-term chronic pain patients without medication, surgery or expensive therapies.

Over 116 million people in the United States suffer from chronic pain. The impact to patients’ lives—in terms of physical and emotional suffering, as well as lost productivity—is astounding. Recent research in neurophysiology and the psychology of pain is pointing the way to a new, vastly less expensive and more efficacious approach for not just reducing—but ELIMINATING—a patient’s chronic pain permanently. Based on this research and his 30 years of clinical experience, Dr. Hanscom has created a unique, patient-centered approach to eliminating chronic pain and successfully treated hundreds of patients with these new techniques. Some of the patients he has treated successfully were cured in weeks after having endured decades of intense, chronic pain even after multiple surgeries and other treatments.

Dr. Hanscom has shared this exciting new approach in his best-selling book Back in Control: A Spine Surgeon’s Roadmap Out of Pain. His breakthrough program offers real hope to those who have suffered the ravages of chronic pain.

For physicians, this approach offers the opportunity to direct their patients toward a solution that avoids the complications and risks associated with surgery, and build a stronger relationship with their chronic pain patients through the application of these techniques.

In this webinar, you will learn to:

  • Triage your chronic pain patients to determine which patients can be effectively treated without surgery
  • Understand the neurophysiologic basis of pain
  • Evaluate the factors that amplify and worsen the patient’s experience of pain
  • Develop a patient centered treatment plan to help patients eliminate the effects of chronic pain from their lives
  • Help the patient create new neural pathways which completely alter and mitigate their experience of pain
Updates Regarding IV Materials and Handling. Part I

Do you want your office to remain in compliance with legal guidelines for injection practices? – Of course you do! The world of sterile compounding is rapidly changing and its effects on the practicing provider may be poorly understood or at the least complicated. The goal of this presentation is to give an overview of implications to the practitioner of such regulatory rules set forth by the USP, CDC, OSHA and other agencies. These are important for practitioner compliance and patient safety. Never has the adage “This isn’t how I learned it in school” more apropos! Practical examples, illustrations from past experience and tips for compliance will be shared.

Questions dealt with in this session include:

  • What are current prescribing, mixing and compounding rules for the practitioner?
  • How do these rules affect peripheral injections, peripherally set IV therapies and central venous access?
  • What do new FDA and other guidelines mean in the doctors office?
  • What are the best ways to comply and remain profitable?
  • And many others

IV Prescriptions Requiring Special Handling. Part II

Most IV nutritional therapies are not only quite safe but also very forgiving in the compounding and administration arena. As our access to more advanced IV product grows the potential for interference with efficacy or outright patient harm grows if certain IV solutions are mishandled. Already in the past decade high grade adverse events requiring hospitalization and some ending in patient death have occurred. The purpose of this presentation is to point out the chemical issues with incompatibility of certain IV products as well as give guidelines for safe administration of those solutions.

Questions dealt with in this session include:

  • What IV products have more potential for misuse and patient harm?
  • How can these products be used effectively and safely?
  • What indications can these products be used for that justify their inclusion in IV practice?
  • And many others

The Unappreciated Role of Hormones and Gut Health

Abstract

This talk will discuss the role of estradiol, estriol, testosterone, and thyroid on gut health. We will go into detail in how junctional adhesive molecule – A (JAM-a) depends on estriol and how this relates to clinical disorders such as type-1 diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease and even chronic fatigue. The newly appreciated role of genderized microbiome and the bacterial/hormone link from Harvard will be shared. We will discuss the role of hypomethylators in the gut such as alcohol and 2-MEO deficiency. The forgotten role of thyroid, especially free T3, reverse T3, and thyroid autoimmunity and transit time will also be discussed and translated into to-do’s and don’ts into clinical practice. The role of herbs and nutraceuticals will also be discussed . The role of SIgA and sex hormones will be discussed.

Learning objectives

  • To understand why hormonal assessment is critical in gut assessment.
  • To understand the role of JAM-A in gut wall integrity.
  • To understand the role of the microbiome and hormones.
  • To understand the role of thyroid and transit time.
  • To understand the role of intracellular magnesium and gut transit time and why magnesium replacement can be very difficult in very ill patients.

An Underlying Cause of Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Abstract

SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) may affect a large proportion of patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). As a model, SIBO explains many of IBS’s peculiarities, including why gas and bloating are the most commonly described symptoms, why some patients experience diarrhea and others constipation, why additional dietary fiber exacerbates some patients’ symptoms, and why well-designed elimination diets do not always alleviate symptoms. Intended for healthcare practitioners, this webinar will review the present evidence around SIBO pathogenesis, associated conditions, detection and treatment.

Learning Objectives

  • The pathogenesis of SIBO
  • How SIBO is related to autoimmunity
  • What conditions are associated with SIBO
  • How to detect SIBO
  • Treatment options for patients with SIBO
