  • This book is both 1) a stand-alone VOLUME TWO to follow the 2014 editions of Inflammation Mastery / Functional Inflammology, VOLUME ONE, and an excerpt from Inflammation Mastery 4th Edition, which is considered the "master work" of the updated and integrated protocols. Clearly, if you already have Inflammation Mastery 4th Edition then you do not need this book, because you already have it in Inflammation Mastery 4th Edition.

  • This work is written for clinicians already conversant in:

    • Chapter 1) Patient assessment, laboratory interpretation, risk management, hypothyroidism, hemochromatosis, 

    • Chapter 2) Wellness, Lifestyle-based Medicine, 

    • Chapter 3) Integrative pain management using nutrition, botanicals, and manipulative medicine, 

    • Chapter 4) Functional Inflammology Protocol: Diet, Polydysbiosis, Viral infections, nutritional immunomodulation, mitochondrial dysfunction, mTOR, ERS-UPR, orthoendocrinology, xenobiotic detoxification.

  • This most recent publication from ICHNFM.ORG is "Functional Medicine Clinical Protocols for Inflammatory Disorders: Functional Inflammology, Volume 2" (2016), which extends Volume 1 printed in color as "Functional Inflammology" (ISBN 0990620409) and grayscale as "Inflammation Mastery" 2014 (ISBN 1500545945); also updated and published in color in 2016 as a single volume as "Inflammation Mastery, 4th Edition" (ISBN: 0990620484). This work is the culmination of several thousand research publications combined with Dr Vasquez’s many years of clinical experience and teaching graduate/doctorate-level students and clinicians worldwide. With radiographs, photos, acronyms, illustrations, flowcharts, and detailed-yet-simplifying explanations, Dr Vasquez makes it easier than ever for clinicians to grasp important concepts in integrative care and functional medicine and then to translate the basic science research and molecular biology into treatment plans that can be explained and used in “the real world” of clinical practice with patients.

  • The associated video tutorials and recorded live conference presentations further help students and clinicians “get it” via Dr Vasquez’s effective teaching style which embraces complexity while always emphasizing clinical applicability and psychosocial context. The Inflammation Mastery & Functional Inflammology series of books and videos translates important concepts and nutritional/biomedical science into easy and practical clinical applications for the prevention and treatment of disorders of sustained inflammation, which Dr Vasquez describes as “patterns of metabolic disturbance and inflammatory dysfunction” existing in three sequential and overlapping categories: 1) metabolic inflammation, 2) allergic inflammation, 3) autoimmune inflammation. This book includes access to video presentations which introduce the origin and components of the Functional Inflammology Protocol and FINDSEX® acronym. Post-publication updates to this information and important social and clinical contextualization are made available in videos and online repositories (access provided in the book), and the e-newsletter available from ICHNFM.ORG. This textbook also provides access, via reprints or hyperlinks, to Dr Vasquez’s published articles—an example of which is his recent paradigm-shifting editorial published in the journal Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine (2014 January). Updated section on pain management allows students and clinicians to understand and apply manual, pharmacologic, nutritional/botanical medicine treatments for musculoskeletal pain, thereby providing better relief for patients and avoiding the hazards of NSAIDs, coxibs, steroids, opioids, immunosuppressants and biologics.
