The leading edge of functional neurology

The purpose of this webinar series is to broaden your understanding of the immunological differences between innate and specific immunity and how those differences manifest in disorders ranging from gluten, and other food sensitivities, to more severe manifestations, such as celiac disease. In the upcoming lecture titled, The Leading Edge of Functional Neurology, Board Certified Neurologist, Dr. David Perlmutter will discuss the critical gut/brain connection and the role that gluten plays in the development of chronic neurologic, degenerative diseases.

Spectrum of gluten related disorders: People shall not live by bread alone

The purpose of this webinar series is to broaden your understanding of the immunological differences between innate and specific immunity, and how those differences manifest in disorders ranging from gluten and other food sensitivities, to more severe manifestations, such as celiac disease. And this lecture, titled Spectrum of Gluten related Disorders, Dr. Alessio Fasano, Chief of the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition for Massachusetts General Hospital and Director of the Center for Celiac Research, will be discussing cutting edge research on celiac disease and gluten-related disorders.

To gluten and beyond…the role of food sensitivities in chronic disease

Event Details The purpose of this webinar series is to broaden your understanding of the immunological differences between innate and specific immunity, and how those differences manifest, in disorders ranging from gluten and other food sensitivities, to more severe manifestations such as celiac disease. The next lecturer is clinician Tania Dempsey, and she’ll be talking about “Gluten and Beyond…The Role of Food Sensitivities in Chronic Disease.” Continue reading →

Explore the cell’s role in mediating adverse reactions: a scientific discussion on metabolic, immunologic and pharmacologic mediators

Event Details Food allergy has been long recognized and well documented. Other adverse reactions to foods first referred to as “toxic idiopathies” by John Freeman, co inventor of immunotherapy, at the early part of the 1900s can be mediated by and have their impact on the nervous and endocrine systems. It can also be mediated by pharmacologic mechanisms and can also affect any part of the body. There’s a great clinical need to accurately identify triggers of adverse reactivity as they have now been linked with even the most serious of modern maladies and diseases. In fact, inflammation is the… Continue reading →

Understanding Methylation, Gene Regulation and the MethylDetox Profile

Event Details This exciting educational presentation shines light on the methylation cycle and discusses the role of nutrients as a clinical strategy. This event will be in a round table format including in-studio discussion surrounding the topics presented. In this round-table, Dino Celeda, Ph.D is accompanied by Amy Pieczarka, RD, LDN, CCN, CDE and Andrew Campbell, M.D. To speak further in detail about any of these topics, schedule a peer call with one of our speakers >> Key Topics covered during this presentation: • Learn about methylation and methylation potential • Discover how methylation potential is correlated with neurotransmitter balance… Continue reading →

Increase your Understanding of the Pathogenesis of Gluten Spectrum Disorders

Event Details Recently, researchers at Harvard University, Alessio Fasano et. al., and the National Institutes of Health (laboratories of immunology and cellular and molecular biology), reported real-time microscopic observations of gluten-induced neutrophil activation. According to authors, ” To what extent neutrophil function adds to, or protects against, gluten intolerance is currently under vigorous investigation.” This presentation will shed light on this question. It will also review the Fasano study and examine the role of neutrophil function in multiple disease conditions, as well as explore how neutrophil function may also play a dual role in protecting the body from the untoward… Continue reading →
