Neuroinflammation has finally been recognized as causing disruption of the neurochemistry responsible for our cognitive and neurobehavioral functioning. Alter the neurochemistry and we lose neurotransmitters, neurosteroids, protein synthesis and encourage neurodegeneration. What precipitates the development of neuroinflammation can be physical trauma as well as non-traumatic events such as chronic stress, surgery, medication and immunizations. This presentation will provide peer-reviewed articles unfolding the relationship of neuroinflammation and compromised functionality. Treatment will be evidential.

  1. What causes neuroinflammation
  2. How stress activates microglial dumping of cytokines
  3. The Fractalkine – Stress connection
  4. Cytokine and neuropsychiatric conditions
  5. Oxidative Stress
  6. Some means of controlling the melt down

Instructor

Originally residency trained and board certified in Family Medicine (1984), Dr. Mark L. Gordon continued his medical education in Clinical Orthopedics (1990), Cosmetic Dermatology (1993), and Sports Medicine (1995) prior to pausing in 2007 to write his first book on Interventional Endocrinology a term which he coined in 2003. His book, The Clinical Application of Interventional Medicine (2008), is recognized by his peers as a primer for the standards of care and assessment for Interventional Endocrinology (anti-aging medicine). He held the position as Voluntary Associate Clinical Professor at the Keck School of Medicine (1998-2013) and Medical Director of CBS Studios (2001-date), and has also participated on projects with HBO, ESPN, CNN, FOX, Good Morning, and a number of international news programs. Dr. Gordon has appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience (#438, #574, #700, #1056) to discuss Traumatic Brain Injury associated hormonal dysfunction syndrome which generated national and international interest. In May 2015, his book Traumatic Brain Injury – A clinical approach to diagnosis and treatment, was launched along with a three-day workshop attended by an international and national group of medical specialists seeking advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment of TBI. In January 2020, Dr. Gordon was invited by the United Kingdom’s Military Surgeon General to provide his perspective on treatment of blast wave trauma and why he was seeing high ranking officers from the UK in his office in Los Angeles. Maybe because they recovered from their symptomatic TBI when placed on the Millennium Treatment Protocol. Lastly, understanding the wealth of information needed to treat TBI patients using the science of neuroendocrinology and endocrinology, Dr. Gordon has spent the past 3 years writing a software application, the Millennium-TBI Office Assistant (MAO), an AI application that uses over 1000 algorithms to interpret the Millennium biomarker panel, medication, and past medical history. This allows for the healthcare provider to duplicate Dr. Gordon’s work and results in 15 minutes as opposed to years. Access to the application will be available in the first quarter of 2020. Dr. Mark Gordon is the owner and Medical Director of Millennium-TBI, located in Encino, California. www.TBIHelpNow.org.
