It is estimated that 56 million, or one in five people over age 20, have metabolic syndrome, a group of traits that are linked to overweight and obesity patterns and increase the risk for both type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Modern science also links these syndromes to dementia, polycystic ovarian syndrome and non-alcoholic fatty liver.
Dr. Carroll presents an updated and practical perspective on supporting patients with a wide range of these cardio-metabolic challenges and discusses cellular, systemic, lifestyle and environmental factors that lead to this pattern of breakdown. He also presents extensive validated research showing the effectiveness of Western botanical herbs as a therapeutic option.
The course is worth 6 CE/PDA credits.
