MemBrain Research 101 Core Material
July 10th to 12th
101 Core Material: course introduces you to the intricate micro-world of membranes, phospholipids, fatty acids and bioactive lipids, and their relationship to neuro-metabolism. Accompanied by robust medical research and interactive visual learning, the clinical application of membrane stabilizing therapy will be highlighted throughout the course.
Phospholipids equal life. Because the body’s trillions of membranes are made from phospholipids, we will concentrate on their role in cell biology and physiology, and on the place of phosphatidylcholine (PC) especially in keeping the membrane’s outer leaflet flourishing and vigorous, simultaneously attending to the roles of phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) and cardiolipin as vital contributors to the architectural stability of mitochondria. Characteristics of the cell’s supporting players will be explored, namely lipid whiskers, aberrant lipids, the nuclear envelops, ceramides and lipid rafts. Optimization of peroxisomal and mitochondrial respiration will be discussed in detail.
The imbalance of fatty acids will be considered, in addition to the examination of the ‘lower order’ essential fatty acids—linoleic acid (LA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)—and how they are implicated in cell-to-cell signaling, immune system health, and gene regulation. Covered, too, will be cell regeneration and the genesis of anti-inflammatory lipid agents, including the specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs). Clearing DNA adducts and rectifying gene expression, particularly in neurological diseases, follow.
Bringing Functional Medicine to the highest degree, this course offers the chance to learn how to use membrane stabilizing therapy through targeted dietary changes and judicious oral supplementation, touching on the viability of intravenous phospholipids as an ancillary approach. Because the Neurolipid Research foundation continuously works to gather the most recent studies and reports to add to its library of more than a hundred thousand papers, you will be regaled with information scarcely available anywhere else.
To bolster your experience, we will explore nutrient dense food taken from the Membrane Stabilizing Diet will be provided for lunch and power snacks. Physicians who take this course often become colleagues, primarily because they find new ways to improve their patients’ health. Find out More Information HERE.
