Functional Inflammology, volume 1: Addendum and Clinical Applications

Authored by Alex Vasquez
Edition: 3.5

This book has been replaced in 2016 by the new edition: Inflammation Mastery, 4th Edition ISBN: 0990620484; 978-0990620488 (1,180 pages in color, providing more than 20 hours of video access). Inflammation Mastery 4th Ed is the complete work updated in 2016; an excerpt has recently become available titled "Textbook of Clinical Nutrition and Functional Medicine, vol. 2: Protocols for Common Inflammatory Disorders" ISBN 9780990620440. According to the publisher, "Minimum list price for this title is $226.27." This volume is not meant to be used as a stand-alone reference because it does not contain the full details of the patient assessments, concepts, and clinical interventions that are detailed and contextualized in Functional Inflammology, Volume 1; this book-clearly an extension of the first volume-is being made available so that recent purchasers of Functional Inflammology, Volume 1 or Integrative Rheumatology, Edition 3 will be able to append or update, respectively, their recent purchases and thereby to access the most complete and up-to-date versions of the clinical applications. The full and complete update to DrV's rheumatology protocol is now available as a single volume of 900 pages: Naturopathic Rheumatology v3.5 (ISBN: 978-0990620426 / 0990620425).

This work-which originated from Dr Vasquez's teaching notes in the Rheumatology course at Bastyr University in 2001-is 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. In the complete work, using 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 Jan). In the complete work, 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.
