Scott Bergman, DC, CTN, DAAIM; Director, Chiro Kinetics Over 50% of US adults report experiencing pain. Musculoskeletal conditions are a major pain culprit. When the musculoskeletal conditions plus their comorbid conditions (e.g. obesity, diabetes, and heart disease) are considered, the associated costs are estimated to be $874 billion annually. Dr. Bergman explores a common, underlying cause: inflammation. He contrasts current conventional treatments and their side effects with a novel healing approach for patients suffering from pain.

In Q&A Part 3, Dominic D’Agostino, PhD explains a conundrum: the evidence basis and clinical benefits of the ketogenic diet for certain chronic disease states are well known, however, there are many individuals who are unable or unwilling to implement a ketogenic diet. To address this issue, Dr. D’Agostino and others are researching the impact of exogenous ketone supplementation on raising ketone levels in the body. Dr. D’Agostino shares the latest research in this area and provides his expert perspective…

Dominic D’Agostino, PhD; Assoc. Professor, Dept. of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology, University of South Florida In Q&A Part 2, Dominic D’Agostino, PhD focuses his discussion on the brain. Dr. D’Agostino explores misconceptions that exist regarding brain physiology, such as glucose dependency. He focuses on the neuroprotective effects of intermittent fasting, reducing glucose and insulin levels, and increasing ketone levels. Dr. D’Agostino shares how a targeted ketogenic approach can reduce neuroinflammation, enhance brain energy metabolism, and activate genetic changes that support…

Dominic D’Agostino, PhD; Assoc. Professor, Dept. of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology, University of South Florida In Q&A Part 1, Dr. Dominic D’Agostino shares his personal experience working with the US Navy to research the cellular and molecular mechanisms of oxygen toxicity seizures, which are a significant limitation for Navy SEAL fighters using special breathing apparatuses. This research allowed Dr. D’Agostino to unearth the unique benefits of nutritional ketosis to target energy metabolism pathways, thereby limiting seizures in Navy SEALs, even during…

P. Michael Stone, MD, MS, IFMCP A 2014 study estimates that one in 68 children are being diagnosed with autism. There are many programs that support these patients but very few treatment options. In Dr. P. Michael Stone’s talk he explores what may be happening in these unique individuals and how doctors can better support this condition. In this broader view Dr. Stone discusses mitochondrial dysfunction, neurologic and gut inflammation, detoxification inadequacy, and much more. He reveals that there are…

Rob Silverman, DC, MS, CNS, CCN; Clinical Director/Owner of Chiro Care The brain is the most nutrient- and energy-dependent organ in the body. It consists of 60% fat and has on average 80 billion neurons. The brain also utilizes 20% of the blood and oxygen in the body. Dr. Silverman speaks about the vulnerability of the brain and how a concussion impacts the entire body. There are 3.8 million reports of concussion per year. In this talk, Dr. Silverman dives into how to treat…

Rob Silverman, DC, MS, CNS, CCN; Clinical Director/Owner of Chiro Care Dr. Silverman has based his practice on athletes and supports them to achieve an athletic advantage. In this talk, Dr. Silverman looks at injury and the injury cycle. He focuses on three simple phases of care: the acute, subacute, and wellness and prevention. This talk helps healthcare practitioners identify which phase athletic patients fall into and how to support them with proper nutrition interventions. Watch the full MAPS Talk: View Now…

Scott Bergman, DC, CTN, DAAIM; Ryan Lazarus, DC, MS, CNS, IFMCP; and Jeff Volek, PhD, RD Three key opinion leaders touch on the biological science behind ketosis as well as emerging scientific research that suggests the epigenetic benefits of a ketogenic lifestyle. To monitor progress during a ketogenic lifestyle plan, they explain how to check for ketone levels, the optimal range for ketosis, and which biomarkers to measure. To help supplement a meal plan, easy-to-consume exogenous ketones and MCT oil…
