Inflammation Mastery: Volume 1 (discounted black and white printing)
 

Introduction to Functional Inflammology and Integrative Pain Management

Authored by Alex Vasquez
Edition: 1

In 2016, this book has been updated and expanded as "Textbook of Clinical Nutrition and Functional Medicine, vol. 1: Essential Knowledge for Safe Action and Effective Treatment" (ISBN: 9780990620457); volumes 1 and 2 are published together in "Inflammation Mastery, 4th Edition) (ISBN: 0990620484). Inflammation Mastery (2014) is the initial printing in black/white/grayscale; the larger full-color version Functional Inflammology [ISBN 9780990620402] is now available and readers are encouraged to use this larger version with more information, full-color graphics and diagrams, more than 14 hours of video presentations and almost 300 presentation slides.

Inflammation Mastery: Volume 1 is the less expensive, grayscale-printed, and slightly shorter version-printed due to technical limitations of the current printer (limited to 630 pages in black and grayscale)-excerpted from the larger and full-color Functional Inflammology: Volume 1, 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 radiographs, photos, acronyms, illustrations, flowcharts, and detailed-yet-simplifying explanations, Dr Vasquez makes it easier than ever for clinicians to grasp important concepts in integrative care and functional medicine and then to translate the basic science research and molecular biology into treatment plans that can be explained and used 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 effective 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(r) acronym. Post-publication updates to this information and important social and clinical contextualization are made available in videos and online repositories (access provided in the book), and the e-newsletter available from InflammationMastery and FunctionalInflammology.com. This textbook also provides access, via reprints or hyperlinks, to Dr Vasquez's published articles-an example of which is his recent paradigm-shifting editorial published in the journal Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine (2014 January). The updated section on pain management allows students and clinicians to understand and apply manual, pharmacologic, nutritional and botanical medicine treatments for musculoskeletal pain, thereby providing better relief for patients and avoiding the hazards of NSAIDs, coxibs, steroids, opioids, immunosuppressants/immunoparalytics and biologics. Written with a modicum of style and humor, the paradigm-shifting revelations and plethora of clinical pearls are punctuated by biochemical insights and inconvenient political-environmental truths. In sum, Dr Vasquez's latest literary laxative disimpacts the dogma, shibboleths, and intellectual inertia that have held clinical medicine in a state of pathocentric pharmacodependent constipation for far too long; authentic long-awaited relief is now available for thousands of doctors and millions of patients.
