Course Overview
Phase I and Phase II detox mechanisms serve to explain many unique presentations for patients.  From multiple drug or chemical sensitivities, paradoxical reactions, extreme or rare side effects and even non-responses to therapy, all can serve as indicators of compromised detoxification pathways. And these compromises over time can lead to a variety of chronic diseases.  Thus, enhancing the physiology of Phase I and Phase II detoxification is imperative for short and long term health as well as the prevention of future illnesses.  Within this session we will closely examine key enzymes of Phase I and Phase II enzymes that can lead to extreme unique presentations.  We will explore various pharmacotherapy, methylation reports, allergies, food sensitivities, family history and personal history to create a comprehensive and targeted approach for improving the health of your patients.  Throughout this session pharmacotherapy, nutrition, botanical medicine and lifestyle support will be incorporated through lecture and case-based learning.  

Attend this presentation to confidently:

  • Describe the similarities and differences between Phase I and Phase II detox.
  • List at least two Phase I and Phase II enzymes that process estrogen.
  • Name at least two phase II detox pathways that metabolize histamines.
  • Identify at least 3 foods that can alter sulfation (positive or negative).
  • Provide possible therapies including lifestyle, nutritional, botanical, and pharmacotherapy to support key enzymatic variations for specific cases provided.
