Tom Malterre MS CN How Common Foods and Herbs Guide Us 
Through A Toxic World
Food is full of signaling molecules that alter human genetics. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the food we eat helps us process the potentially toxic chemicals that we might come in contact with on a daily basis. The presentation How common foods and herbs guide us through a toxic world  will discuss the genius of nature and how it alters detoxification through our daily diets. Emphasis will be placed on vegetables (cruciferous and others), fruits, turmeric (curcumin), green tea, and milk thistle (silymirin). Detoxification,  Fall 2009

Walter Prozialeck PhD Mechanisms and Biomarkers of Cadmium Nephrotoxicity
Cadmium is an important industrial and environmental pollutant that is a leading cause of kidney disease in some parts of the world.  This presentation will summarize recent research findings regarding the mechanisms by which cadmium accumulates in the kidney and alters renal function.  Recent findings on novel urinary biomarkers of Cd-induced kidney injury and the implications of the findings to clinical monitoring and treatment of patients will also be discussed. Detoxification, Fall 2009
James Greenblatt MD Neuroactive Peptides in Food: A New Model for the 
Treatment and Prevention of Eating Disorders
This presentation will discuss diagnostic distinctions and therapies involved in the treatment of eating disorders. Although anorexia nervosa (AN) is a psychiatric illness characterized by severe weight loss from self-starvation, signs or symptoms of vitamin and mineral deficiencies are rarely studied or integrated into treatment. Research from the 1980’s has suggested zinc deficiency may play a role in the development of anorexia nervosa – what are the factors that dictate the rare use of zinc therapy in the treatment of AN. To complicate matters, studies have found that individuals with AN are more likely to have multiple coexisting psychiatric disorders than the general population. Recent clinical evidence suggests that neuroactive peptides may exacerbate the course of treatment. Specifically, the peptides casomorphin and gliadorphin (from incompletely digested dairy and wheat proteins, casein and gluten respectively) have been shown to be elevated in patients with eating disorders and even OCD spectrum. A multifaceted approach, including integrative nutritional support, which addresses specific deficiencies and the presence of neuroactive peptides, might be the optimal program for the treatment of AN.

Tieraona  Low Dog MD The Role of Herbal Medicine in Mental Health 
Mood disorders, particularly depression, have a high rate of co-morbidity with both mental health and medical problems.  Depressive disorders are common among patients with chronic medical conditions; even when appropriately treated, depression recurs in 50-70% of those affected.  Given the side effects of conventional antidepressants, many patients turn to the use of dietary supplements in an attempt to improve their mood and prevent recurrence.  Unfortunately, many patients do not disclose their supplement use to their provider, and most clinicians are not familiar enough with the evidence of safety and benefit of supplements to effectively counsel patients about their use. This session will update clinicians on the science regarding dietary supplements/botanicals commonly used for depression and anxiety.
