In this presentation “Novel Clinical Insights on Inflammation: Resolving not Blocking,” Andrew Heyman, MD, MHSA shares clinical experiences and observations related to health conditions associated with increased inflammatory biomarkers. Dr. Heyman explores the role of specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs) in the clinical management of chronic inflammatory conditions, such as chronic pain and fibromyalgia, focusing on evidence from a multi-center case series investigation. Dr. Heyman concludes with insights on novel clinical targets for resolvins in neuroinflammation, in addition to providing a patient algorithm for SPM incorporation within a medical nutrition therapy intervention for inflammatory conditions.
Andrew Heyman, MD, MHSA is an integrative physician and Medical Director of Integrative Medicine at George Washington University.
