Hour 1 – Introduction

  • Time Magazine [and other lay magazines] are up-to-date and focusing on chronic inflammation as the underlying cause of most diseases

  • Innervation of muscles, joints, and viscera
  • How tissue innervation patterns control homeostasis

Hour 4 – Homeostatic mechanisms run amok (part 2)

  • How our biomechanical, psychological, and nutritional lifestyle determines tissue biochemistry and homeostasis
  • Introduction to related disease mechanisms – focus on neurogenic inflammation
  • Connection between neurogenic inflammation and “classic” inflammation
  • “Inflammation” as both a pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory reaction

Hour 5 – Intro to fatty acids and relationship to inflammation

  • Review of saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids
