SYSTEMIC INFLAMMATION AND NUTRITION:
Saturday, November 10: 3:30PM - 4:30PM

ABOUT THE LECTURE:
Overeating is the primary dietary problem from which most people suffer. Excess sugar, flour, and refined oils are typically the calories we habitually overeat. The outcome is an immediate postprandial inflammatory state, and in the long term, a state of low-grade chronic inflammation that exists 24 hours per day, which ultimately drives the expression of disease and chronic pain. This session will address how to reverse the chronic inflammatory state with diet and supplementation. 

Learning objectives:

1. Outline the mechanism by which a pro-inflammatory diet alters body chemistry, compromises musculoskeletal and visceral tissue integrity, and promotes chronic pain and disease

2. Identify markers of chronic inflammation that can be tracked in clinical practice

3. Recommend dietary changes and nutritional supplements to modulate chronic inflammation 


David Seaman, DC, MD
ABOUT DR. SEAMAN:
During chiropractic college, Dr. Seaman became interested in what it was about patients who did not respond to traditional chiropractic care. This led him to investigate pain mechanisms in more detail after graduation. He sought guidance from pain researchers at the University of North Carolina and the University of California.
He ultimately published four scientific articles about barriers to effective weight management, pain syndrome classification, diet-induction of inflammation and pain, and pain expression in the context of the pro-inflammatory state created by an elevated body mass index.
These articles have been referenced by researchers from Harvard Medical School and many other universities in the United States, as well as universities in Canada, Brazil, Iran, India, Russia, Japan, Thailand, China, Australia and several European countries.
