Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Internal Medicine Volume 60, Issue 33: Integrative Nutrition.
The goal of this program is to improve the application of integrative nutrition in cancer care and explore the potential association between vitamin D deficiency and cardiac disease. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Counsel patients on nutritional strategies to reduce risk for cancer.
2. Summarize data supporting the potential impact of a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids on the progression of certain cancers and the efficacy of chemotherapeutic agents.
3. Identify mushrooms with potential therapeutic benefits for patients with cancer who undergo chemotherapy.
4. Consider prescribing cannabis for management of cancer-related symptoms.
5. Monitor and correct deficiencies of vitamin D in patients at risk for coronary artery disease.
The original programs were presented by Donald I. Abrams, MD, Professor of Clinical Medicine, Integrative Oncologist, Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine; Chief, Hematology-Oncology, San Francisco General Hospital. Brandi J. Witt, MD, Cardiologist, Lakeview Hospital Heart Center, HealthPartners Medical Group and Clinics, Stillwater, MN.
