​Essay in progress, meanwhile please see this PDF sample from Dr Vasquez's textbook.  Here are the facts: 

  1. Medical doctors receive zero training in clinical nutrition in medical school and residency; the only training that we receive in nutrition is the study in Pathology of nutritional deficiency diseases, but doctors have no clue how to use nutrition effectively in the interventional treatment of clinical disease

  2. Medical journals such as JAMA, NEJM, AFP and news outlets such as Medscape publish rubbish on nutrition (usually by medical authors who of course have no training and zero expertise in nutrition, ie the blind leading the blind), engage in active fear-mongering against nutrition, and essentially exacerbate confusion and ignorance among physicians rather than serving them appropriately with accurate and useful information.

  3. These organizations and publications should hire a real expert physician with doctorate-level training in clinical nutrition: Dr Alex Vasquez

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)
