CLM 2: NUTRITION & DETOXIFICATION

Core Learning Module 2 focuses on the role of nutrition and detoxification to maintain optimal outcomes and slow down the ageing process. You will review the effects of nutritional deficiencies and detoxification on the ageing process and learn the detoxification pathways and identify the effects of drug induced nutrient depletion and how to overcome them.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Understanding the effects of nutritional deficiencies and detoxification on the ageing process
  • Learn about the detoxification pathways and the consequence of the body's inability to detoxify
  • Review treatment protocols for detoxification and improving nutritional deficiency states to decelerate the ageing process
  • Identify the effects of drug induced nutrient depletion and how to overcome them

UNITS

  • UNIT 1: Detoxification & Toxic Load
  • UNIT 2: Heavy Metals
  • UNIT 3: Nutrient Depletions & Environmental Toxins
  • UNIT 4: Nutrients for Detoxification
  • UNIT 5: Oxidative Stress
  • UNIT 6: Protocols & Treatment Strategies

LECTURE TOPICS

  • Physiology of detoxification
  • Total toxic load detoxification and its effect on ageing
  • Assessment of toxic burden and detox capacity
  • Environmental toxins
  • Xenobiotics and heavy metals
  • Chronic disease and heavy metal toxicty
