Microbiome and Clinical Dysbiosis course sample from Video #12 Gut-Brain Connections: Kynurenine tutorial (draft excerpt from video presentation in process)
Dr Vasquez introduces the CE/CME course "Human Microbiome and Dysbiosis in Clinical Disease" (Main page) (PDF syllabus)
Summary of this brief video excerpt: In this conversation, Dr Vasquez begins detailing the main considerations in the assessment, differentiation of subtypes, and treatment of gastrointestinal dysbiosis. This video of 2 hours is the section of the 4-hour presentation.
Overview: In this course, which details the molecular basis and clinical management of dysbiosis-induced disease, Dr Vasquez walks participants through the most important considerations and concepts for the successful management of various forms of dysbiosis, differentiated by metabolic impact and inflammatory consequences, as well as clinical phenotypes and prototypes, so that clinicians can truly master the impact of microbial imbalances in clinical care. The accompanying (sold separately at discount price, but also included in the program in plain text format) clinical monograph provides an additional 14 hours of video access for additional insight and clinical application. For a conceptual review in print, see DrV's translational review published in 2015 and his more recent letter published in Nature Reviews Rheumatology 2016.
Clinical pearls, starting with video #1: If you understand the pathophysiologic mechanisms involved in dysbiosis-induced disease, then you will know how to intervene more effectively, regardless of the identity of the microbes involved.
Note: This video is still undergoing edits and improvements; the updated version will be uploaded to this page very shortly, in the evening of Friday Dec 2 (2016).
FOR CLARITY: Chapter 5.1b from Inflammation Mastery 4th Edition was published separately as
Pain Revolution in color and later as
Brain Inflammation in discounted grayscale; the digital versions are identical.

Overview (Part 1) of the Functional Inflammology Protocol
Dr Vasquez introduces the "Functional Inflammology Protocol" at the 2013 International Conference on Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine (PDF brochure)
Dr Vasquez's "functional inflammology protocol", famously recalled by the FINDSEX ® acronym, is reviewed in this presentation for its application to the three general types of inflammatory diseases/responses: 1) metabolic inflammation, including glial activation and emphasizing the component of mitochondrial dysfunction, 2) allergic inflammation, including asthma and eczema, and 3) autoimmune inflammation, including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and the many other conditions that Dr Vasquez has detailed in his books starting in 2004 (Integrative Orthopedics) and 2006 (Integrative Rheumatology, now published as Inflammation Mastery, 4th Edition).
