The new version of this work is Vasquez A. Human Microbiome and Dysbiosis in Clinical Disease: An Integrative Functional Medicine approach to Understanding and Treating Microbial Imbalances and Chronic Infections. ICHNFM Publishers 2015 [ISBN: 978-0990620419]. The new book is the study guide for the online Continuing Education course taught by Dr Vasquez. Both books provide a 3-part Learning System of Text, Slides, and Video. This is an excerpt from Functional Inflammology: Introduction to Clinical Nutrition, Functional Medicine, and Integrative Pain Management [ISBN: 978-0990620402] the culmination of several thousand research publications combined with Dr Vasquez's many years of clinical experience and teaching graduate-level students and doctorate-level clinicians worldwide. With the photos, diagrams, acronyms, illustrations and explanations, Dr Vasquez makes it easier than ever for clinicians to grasp important concepts and then apply the basic science research and molecular biology in to treatment plans that can be explained and applied in "the real world" of clinical practice with patients. The associated video tutorials and recorded live conference presentations further help students and clinicians "get it" via Dr Vasquez's teaching style which embraces complexity while always emphasizing clinical applicability and psychosocial context. The Inflammation Mastery & Functional Inflammology series of books and videos translates important concepts and nutritional/biomedical science into easy and practical clinical applications for the prevention and treatment of disorders of sustained inflammation, which Dr Vasquez describes as "patterns of metabolic disturbance and inflammatory dysfunction" existing in three sequential and overlapping categories: 1) metabolic inflammation, 2) allergic inflammation, 3) autoimmune inflammation. This book includes access to video presentations which introduce the origin and components of the Functional Inflammology Protocol and FINDSEX® acronym. Post-publication updates to this information and important social and clinical contextualization are contained in the accompanying videos-hyperlinks and passwords are provided via newsletters and as described within this book.
