PREVENTING & REVERSING VASCULAR DISEASE
Research can demonstrate how food affects physiology in health and disease as well as how food can undermine or promote the rehabilitation process. This two-day translational course will present evidence-based strategies to effectively prevent, arrest, and reverse vascular diseases including:
- angina pectoris (chest pain)
- myocardial infarction (heart attack)
- intermittent claudication (leg cramping)
- gangrene (tissue decay/death)
- impotence (erectile dysfunction)
- hypertension (high blood pressure)
- cerebral infarction (stroke)
- senility (restricted oxygen to vital brain tissue)
- hearing loss (restricted oxygen and nutrients to tissues)
- visual loss (restricted oxygen and nutrients to tissues)
For rehabilitation and non-rehabilitation patients, this program may assist in prevention as well as initiate the reversal process of common vascular disease. For example, vascular disease is the number one cause of death in patients with a spinal cord injury. By providing patients with insight, knowledge, and motivation to improve their dietary lifestyle, spinal cord injury patients can modify their comorbidities such as overweight, hypertension, depression, and hypercholesterolemia.
Similarly, through intensive education and a better dietary lifestyle, stroke patients can learn to address their blood pressure to reduce recurrence risk and further deterioration.
To support the attainment of knowledge, competence, and performance, the learner should be able to achieve the following objectives:
- List the evidence on how food affects the physiology of health and disease.
- Identify means to effectively prevent, arrest, and reverse vascular diseases.
- Describe strategies for prevention and reduction of dietary risk factors for vascular disease.
