About this course

We have recently reached a point of understanding that ageing is a disease! Research is suggesting that very specific processes are at the core of many chronic diseases and the process of accelerated ageing.

Metaflammation appears to be central to many chronic diseases and accelerated ageing. This is ‘Metabolic Inflammation’ also known as ‘Inflammation-Driven Ageing’. Understanding the factors that drive this process gives us insight into how to improve resiliency, durability and longevity of every patient. With the advent of epigenetic testing researchers now have the ability to look at the direct effects that genetics have on metaflammation.

In this webinar we discuss the latest nutrients, delivery systems and other strategies that can help your patients turn back their epigenetic clock. James LaValle is a Clinical Pharmacist and Board-Certified Clinical Nutritionist with over 30 years of clinical experience. He is the author of 19 books, over 200 articles and 3 databases. He has spent considerable time understanding human metabolism and believes that we have a new opportunity to help our patients by understanding the deeper aspect of pathophysiology.

The future health of every person is shaped more by their life’s decisions and environmental exposures than it is by their genetics. This presentation focuses on the key aspects of how to manage Metaflammation and Inflammageing through targeting the key disruptors to metabolism.
