Immunology and Genetics – The Future Basis of Medical Diagnosis and Management      

6 CEUs for NJ Chiropractors              

As we see patients undergoing treatment, diagnosis and therapies are under a new “scrutiny”.  Medicine has treated diseases for many years but sometimes the therapy is, and sometime is not, successful or there are unpredictable side effects.  A current biological scientific focus is on what underlies these issues and what could be predictable treatment – our immune system and our genetics.

Overview of the Human Immune System

  • What exactly are the components of our immune system – keeps us alive and functioning (most of the time).
    • What defends us from being eliminated when we get an infection or a viral attack (the common “cold”)
    • The two basic immune systems – Innate and Adaptive – our saviors.
    • However, at times, our “savior immune system” may cause body side effects or damage (eg. Allergy). Why?
    • Practitioners have had Hepatitis B and COVID-10 vaccines (hopefully) – what exactly is a vaccine, how does it protect us?
    • The pluses and minuses of an amazing system – you have survived bodily attacks for many years. Why is it that our immune system cannot prevent us from getting a cancer?
  • Genetics –– Who you are and what you are and what can lead to patient’s medical and dental disease.
    • What exactly is our genetic structure that builds our body parts or determines if we have blue or brown eyes:
      • DNA – the body cell planner
      • RNA – the body cell construction director
      • Ribosomes – the body cell manufacturer
    • What exactly is a gene? Our genes exert further control on the construction crew – so why does one have blue eyes and one has brown eyes?
    • Telomeres – what is the part of our genetics that contributes to aging?
    • How do our genes influence the potential development of cancer?
