The American Academy of Environmental Medicine holds the medical conference
“Integrative Solutions for 21st Century Medicine”
October 23-26, 2014 in
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Up to 26.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits can be earned at the conference.
The number of Americans with Multiple Chronic Conditions (MCCs) is rising (more than one in four). This problem is increasingly being addressed in Public Health forums, by the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Center for Disease Control. Clusters of diseases are occurring in the same individual and have been associated with various etiologies. The range of body systems affected is broad: immune, central nervous system, respiratory, endocrine, cardiovascular and musculoskeletal. These clusters of diseases have synergistic interactions.
This CME conference will explore the toxins, triggers and potential solutions for many of these Multiple Chronic Conditions. The etiologies are myriad: environmental influences include air; water; food and food additives; food preparation methods; ingestant chemicals; aerosolized toxins and toxicants; contact materials; electromagnetic force overload – in short, 21st century exposures affect the genome, epigenome, celluar and extracellular structures that produce the phenotype(s) of diseases we commonly see in practice. Physicians must become familiar with the complex mechanisms behind these problems, as well as how to accurately diagnose and effectively treat them.
“Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity as an Emerging Illness” is one of three all-day workshops offered on Thursday, October 23 prior to the main conference. It is designed for primary care providers, “including physicians, nurses and physicians assistants who manage complex patients.”
