Bare Essentials to Inflammation

Overview
Our patients don’t leave their stressful jobs, poor sleeping patterns (insomnia, apnea, snoring), their physical fitness (or lack) or their eating patterns (mindless eating & evening feeding frenzies) in the car before they sit in our chair. In his high-energy presentation, Dr. Uche Odiatu highlights the science of how lifestyle and habits can increase or decrease inflammation.

Presenter
Uche Odiatu, DMD, is the author of The Miracle of Health, a professional member of the American College of Sports Medicine, an NSCA certified personal trainer, and a certified yoga instructor.

 

In this course, you will:
• Discover how eating habits have the ability to dial down or ramp inflammation and how it affects your treatment outcomes
• Learn why it’s important to identify the sleep deprived patient in your practice
• Understand why your sedentary patients don’t heal as well as your active living patients. ALERT 85% of your patients lead sedentary lives.
• Gain greater insight into the relationship between chronic inflammation & disease
• Develop a conversation style to positively impact your patient at the new patient & recare exam
