  • Understand the two stages of inflammation—initiation and resolution
  • Learn how SPMs influence immune cell functioning and promote inflammation resolution
  • Review factors that influence endogenous SPM production and when exogenous SPM administration is justified
  • Understand protocols and case studies utilizing exogenous SPM administration and their outcomes


In this master class you’ll learn from an experienced practitioner:

  • How SPMs, a class of signaling molecules derived from polyunsaturated fatty acids, can program immune cells to naturally resolve the inflammatory cycle
  • Why many anti-inflammatory approaches we currently employ can paradoxically contribute to long-term low-grade inflammation by inhibiting the resolution process
  • Practical tips and strategies for therapeutic management of inflammation in a clinical setting

We encourage you to bring your questions about protocols or complicated cases or any other questions you encountered in your practice. This is a peer-to-peer collaboration and your opportunity to get your questions answered.

Limited number of seats available for in-person attendance...or join us virtually!
