Searching for a Definition of Advanced Practice in Chiropractic MedicineContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 02/20/2020 at 1:00 PM (EST)
Join Dr. Christopher T. Arick, DC, for a webinar which will attempt to define "Advance Practice" in terms of the field of chiropractic. Advanced practice in chiropractic medicine stands as a progressive and evolving concept and credential within many health science professions. Advanced practice in health care is of interest in response to continued technological advances, increase complexity of health care, structural changes in health care delivery, and changing health care needs (Schober and Affara, 2006). These demands include the chiropractic medicine profession as a major health care discipline. Advanced practice chiropractic medicine has been prone to professional and political debate. However, to focus the intention of advance practice chiropractic medicine, a definition of its capacity and function within the profession and inter-disciplinary is required. This presentation will review the literature for the conceptualization and nature of advanced practice, acknowledge challenges for its development, and suggest its purpose-driven function in order to come to a recommended definition within chiropractic medicine.

A Common Link Between Alzheimer’s, Arthritis and Metabolic DisordersContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 04/30/2020 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
This presentation by Dr. Robert Silverman, DC will explore the commonalities between Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, and metabolic disorders. They can all be induced by systemic gut bacterial toxins. The pathogens involved in gut dysbiosis possess inflammatory toxins such as lipopolysaccharides (LPS) and cytolethal distending toxins (CDT). The release of these toxins in the gut opens intestinal tight junctions and degrades epithelial cells allowing for unfettered infiltration of LPS and CDT into the periphery. Once in circulation, the inflammatory LPS and CDT can travel throughout the body, opening the blood-brain barrier, inflaming joint tissues, dysregulating the thyroid, and initiating insulin resistance. This therapeutic opportunity applies to many of the patients seen each week. Detection of systemic bacterial toxins can guide an appropriate gut-healing protocol. Repairing and maintaining the intestinal barrier is a key component in combating many extra-intestinal disorders.
