Paradigm Shift: COVID as an Opportunity to Leverage Integrative Medicine into our Next Era of Health Care
This time of COVID is an opportunity to leverage integrative medicine as your tool for more robust health and to reduce risk factors you can control. The challenges of this pandemic have unmasked the key vulnerabilities of chronic disease and are a wake up call for all of us.
There are underlying conditions that seem to be higher risk factors for severity or complications from this coronavirus and include hypertension, obesity, immune compromise, high blood sugar and inflammation. These risk factors result from the complex interaction of individual genetics, lifestyle, environment, diet, and the social determinants of disease. Integrative medicine addresses these and we will in our session.
The goal of this program is to empower you.
review the principles and benefits of Integrative Medicine
provide tools to shift away from chronic disease risks
review risk factors and solutions through an integrative approach
look at chronic inflammation and its interaction with viral insult
share ways to pull out the integrative essence in all of us as we answer the wake up call and be proactive
remember that part of an integrative approach includes physical distancing, masks, hand-washing, and in some cases self-isolation.
