New Clinical Breakthroughs for Stubborn Brain Symptoms

Treating Neuroinflammation Course

May 18-19, 2019

As a health practitioner, you’ve devoted your life to helping people feel better.

But you’re frustrated. Because some of your patients suffer with symptoms like brain fog, depression, anxiety, fatigue, and memory problems.

And you’re hitting dead ends with these patients, despite doing all the right functional medicine protocols.

Why? Because even the best functional medicine protocols fail to address an underlying cause of so many stubborn symptoms: neuroinflammation.

Neuroinflammation is one of the most common — and least understood — mechanisms associated with a host of symptoms and disorders.

And it’s one of the main reasons chronic patients don’t get well.

But when you understand the clinical strategies and treatment options for neuroinflammation, you’ll be able to help patients you could never help before.

The Kharrazian Institute is honored to offer the world’s first comprehensive course on neuroinflammation.

In the Treating Neuroinflammation Course you’ll learn a step-by-step clinical model for identifying patterns and sources of neuroinflammation through patient history, physical examination, laboratory tests, and neuroimaging studies.

We’ll discuss factors that play a role in neuroinflammation, clinical strategies to address neuroinflammation, tools you can use with patients, and much more.

By the end of this course, you’ll have a clinical model you can immediately use to help your current patients and attract more patients to your practice.

The Missing Piece of Functional Medicine

The Kharrazian Institute’s Treating Neuroinflammation Course will help you deliver the latest in brain care your patients can’t get anywhere else.

That’s important. Because brain-based disorders have exploded in recent years and continue to skyrocket. And they impact every aspect of health.

Consider these alarming trends:

Fatigue has become epidemic among Americans. Many patients are chronically tired and fatigued.

Brain fog affects the majority of chronically ill and autoimmune patients and significantly raises the risk of dementia and other brain-based problems.

Anxiety disorders affect roughly 1 in 5 American adults, creating problems for people at home, work, and school.

The number of deaths from Alzheimer’s has increased almost 90 percent in the last 20 years. It is now the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Alzheimer’s kills more people than prostate and breast cancer combined.

The incidences of autism spectrum disorder has risen steeply in the last 20 years. In 1999, one in 500 children had ASD; today, it’s a startling one in 45. In fact, more children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with diabetes, AIDS, and cancer combined.

Major depression is on the rise in both children and adults in the US, but especially in children. Rates of major depression have gone up more than 60% in just the last six years. Antidepressants are one of the most commonly prescribed drugs today.

Despite these trends, both conventional and functional medicine treat these conditions “from the neck down”… often ignoring the crucial role brain inflammation plays in health outcomes.

This leaves both patients and practitioners feeling helpless, hopeless, and frustrated by a lack of solutions.

But the Treating Neuroinflammation Course gives you the missing piece of functional medicine so you can improve patients’ lives like never before.

Your Instructor

The Treating Neuroinflammation Course is taught by Datis Kharrazian, PhD, DHSc, DC, MS, MMSc, FACN.

Dr. Kharrazian is a Harvard Medical School-trained researcher with more than 20 years of experience using functional medicine to treat highly complex patient cases.

He’s also taught functional medicine seminars to health care practitioners for more than 20 years. And he’s known for showing practitioners how to immediately apply what they’re learning into their practices.

In the Treating Neuroinflammation Course, Dr. Kharrazian will give practitioners the knowledge and tools to manage the most common brain-based disorders today and immediately boost their quality of care.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Kharrazian for more than a decade and observing his professional growth and impact as a key opinion leader in the field of Functional Neurology. He is voracious in his pursuit of learning and skill development. His pursuit of post-graduate studies at Harvard in research methods has embellished his already significant expertise in systems medicine and its application to Functional Medicine. He has a unique skill in making complex information accessible to his students and patients alike, which is a measure of an individual who is a master of his field. Dr. Kharrazian is a humble, quietly competent leader who leads by example and his presence. The Functional Medicine field is rapidly evolving, and it is through the work and leadership of a select group of professionals, of which Dr. Kharrazian is a recognized leader, that it is growing in both its adoption and successful application to the treatment of complex chronic diseases. It is truly a pleasure to call Dr. Kharrazian both a colleague and friend in our mutual advocacy in the development and application of Functional Medicine.

How is the Treating Neuroinflammation Course Different?

The Treating Neuroinflammation Course is based on breakthrough research into the role glial cells — the brain’s immune cells — play in neuroinflammation.

Dr. Kharrazian has exhaustively studied this new research and developed new clinical models he’s used to treat his patients.

Now he’s ready to teach them to you.

In the Treating Neuroinflammation Course course you will learn:

The role of the brain’s immune cells, called glial cells, in maintaining the health of the neurons.

How focusing on the neurons but ignoring glial cells explains why functional neurology protocols often worsen symptoms or fail.

How glial cells that have become pro-inflammatory actually change in shape, anatomy, and function… and what to do about it.

Clinical strategies for disarming activated glial cells.

How to figure out what is causing neuroinflammation in each patient; it will be different for each.

How to stimulate the neurons to keep glial cells healthy.

How to prevent accelerated degeneration and loss of glial cells and take care of the ones you and your patients have left.

How to work backwards through a step-by-step clinical process to uncover each patient’s unique triggers for neuroinflammation.

How memory, cognition, synaptic function, neurotransmitter activity, and other vital brain functions are dependent on healthy glial cell function.

Research breakthroughs in what causes glial cells to become pro-inflammatory.

How to identify patterns of neuroinflammation on blood tests.

How healthy glial function supports positive neuron plasticity.

How gut bacteria directly communicate with glial cells.

How to use physical examinations and neuroimaging studies to identify neuroinflammation and track the progress of protocols.

Your Patients Need a Leader in Brain Health

Many, if not most, patients today suffer from brain inflammation. Their numbers will only continue to grow. Are you prepared?

The sooner you learn how to help them, the sooner you will dramatically change the lives of your patients and their families… and your practice.

Dr. Kharrazian has trained some of the top clinicians in the world and helped transform thousands of medical practices throughout the United States and Europe.

Now it’s your turn.

Join Dr. Kharrazian and a like-minded group of health pioneers in the Treating Neuroinflammation Course so you can start successfully helping the patients other doctors fail.
