Gordon Ko, MD - The “C.B.D.” approach to treat, avoid or reverse


Topic: The “C.B.D.” approach to treat, avoid or reverse problematic treatment methods in Autoimmune disorders by Gordon Ko, MD

Conference:Re-examining the Oath - Toronto, ON - September 9-11, 2016

Lecture Abstract: This lecture will introduce the four-component integrative medicine model of treating early autoimmune disease (fibromyalgia). Identification of the key root causes (structural, biochemical, psychospiritual and neurological) is the first step. Emerging treatments for each area include Medical Cannabis with appropriate CBD/THC ratios for neuro and immunomodulation. Platelet-rich plasma with adipose stem cell injections facilitates structural healing and also has a major immunomodulatory effect. Botulinum-toxin A injections assist with correction of muscle imbalances and also has an inhibitory effect on neuropathic pain mediators. Fundamentals in dietary and detoxification strategies will also be highlighted.

Learning Objective 1: Attendees will review the history and science of medical Cannabis (and the role of Cannabidiol) in fibromyalgia and autoimmune disorders (and its advantages over opioids and pharmaceuticals)

Learning Objective 2: Attendees will consider the scientific evidence for the use of injections: Blood—autologous platelet-rich plasma with mesenchymal stem cells and Botulinum Toxin-A for musculoskeletal pain and inflammation (and their advantages over traditional nerve blocks and corticosteroids)

Learning Objective 3: Attendees will apply key Dietary and Detoxification strategies that promote healing in such disorders

Learning Objective 4: Attendees will integrate the “four-component” approach for reversing chronic autoimmune disorders with illustrative case examples
