Peter Greenlaw, University of Colorado Business Degree

The TDOS SyndromeTM (Toxicity, Nutritional Deficiency, Overweight, Stress) demonstrates the ways these factors combine to have a deadly impact. Our current health care system relies primarily on procedural interventions rather than preventative interventions. The TDOS ProtocolTM relies heavily on preventative interventional technologies and when needed natural procedural interventions. The TDOS ProtocolTM is an exciting new preventative interventional approach to attack the TDOS SyndromeTM .

Conference 2014, Cul - Culinary Day

How do we define “autism,” and what bearing does this have on therapy? What bodily systems and pathologies are primarily involved, and how do we make them better to improve health and function and in what order?

John Hicks, MD, will provide a broad survey of systems and symptoms and objective laboratory testing to consider in the treatment plan. Emphasis will also be placed on the use of less aggressive therapies as appropriate in a more sensitive patient population. Questions and discussion will be encouraged.

Thu, 05/22/2014 - 9:00am - 11:30am
AVEDON
Conference 2014

As an established physician, the CME Program student is familiar with the systems of the human body. However, how do we define “autism,” and what bearing does this have upon the physician’s perspective toward therapy? What bodily systems and pathologies are primarily involved, and how do we remediate these to enhance health and function and with what order of operations?

John Hicks, MD, will provide a broad survey of systems and symptoms, with emphasis on an insightful patient history, thoughtful assessment, and objective laboratory testing to guide the physician in an individualized treatment plan. Emphasis will also be placed on the use of less aggressive therapies as appropriate in a more sensitive patient population. Questions and discussion will be encouraged.

Learning Objectives:
The student will receive practical information that can be implemented in practice on:
• Taking a history/assessment
• Symptoms and development
• Therapeutic and nutritional diet
• Foundational physiological problems
• Objective laboratory testing for the immune system, GI tract, and more
• Treatments
• Therapies
• Appropriate follow-up

Juggling diets, supplements, IV treatments, IVIG, educational therapies and the rest of life is taxing under the best of circumstances and particularly difficult on a budget. Dr. Brown will provide tips and approaches for choosing which battles to fight and which can be postponed, as well as tips for recognizing which battles are bigger than the both of you and will require experienced assistance. He will also take a look at those biomedical interventions that can be started before you meet with a practitioner, how to initiate them safely and effectively and how to make the most of your therapy dollar.
