Dr Vasquez's "Functional Inflammology Protocol 2017, Part 3": A Short Extension and Review of Basic Concepts and Clinical Applications

This presentation should be considered "Part 3" in the overview and summary of the "Functional Inflammology Protocol"; the most important addition for 2017 is that of the fourth type of chronic/sustained inflammation, which is brain inflammation or neuroinflammation. Obviously, more details are provided in the Inflammation Mastery textbooks and in the more detailed videos, especially the program on Human Microbiome and Dysbiosis in Clinical Disease. See also:

As mentioned in the added text in the video, this presentation was being translated to French in real time (by my friend and colleague Margarita Hernandez Guzman ND), and these simultaneous translations always require me to speak more slowly and more selectively so that the translator can have a moment to digest and then translate what I have said; this 1) slower pace, and 2) additional mental filtering forces me to give less than my most assertive and entertaining presentation, but there it is. See Functional Inflammology Part 1 linked above and my other presentations for a faster and more fluid delivery. Recent peer-reviewed publications related to this material include the following:
