Event Overview
Welcome message:

Immune Advanced Practice Module (APM) - The Many Faces of Immune Dysregulation and Chronic Inflammation : Chronic Infections, Atopy and Autoimmune Disorders is organized by Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) and would be held during Feb 04 - 06, 2018 at Loews Atlanta Hotel, Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event for immunologists, gastroenterologists, Microbiologists and Rheumatologists.


This course will focus on chronic inflammation, systemic influences on the immune system, and the consequent dysfunction that may ensue. The Immune APM will supply you with an in-depth understanding of underlying immune mechanisms and enable you to develop effective interventions even in the absence of a conventional diagnosis.


Conference Objectives are : 

• Broadly understand the physiology and pathophysiology associated with inflammation and immune dysregulation and their associations with systemic disease.

• Elicit and recognize important history and physical exam findings associated with immune dysregulation and inflammation.

• Evaluate and recognize patterns associated with underlying antecedents,triggers, and mediators involved in immune dysfunction and inflammation.

• Learn how to evaluate the most useful and reliable laboratory tests associated with immune dysfunction and inflammation.

• Develop and organize individual treatment protocols that include dietary changes, lifestyle modifications, and nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, and botanical treatments.


It is estimated that 25 million to 50 million Americans suffer from autoimmune diseases. Functional Medicine teaches that immune imbalance, while often resulting from a genetic disposition, will generally arise in the context of one or more of the following: the habitual consumption of a proinflammatory diet; food allergies and intolerances; microbial infections; hormonal imbalances; nutritional insufficiencies; and xenobiotic exposure.


Nearly 100 different diseases have been classified as autoimmune in nature, with 40 more suspected. While these conditions tend to be viewed as separate entities, a broader perspective may reveal that shared mechanisms are the underlying cause of these maladies. It is abundantly clear that environmental factors have important parts to play in the underlying etiology. In rheumatoid arthritis, for instance, genetic factors have been shown to be responsible for less than 50% of the risk. This means that environmental factors—and gene-environment interactions—must play a significant role. Despite this understanding, less attention has been focused on determining these other important causal factors.
