Understanding and Applying Allostatic Load Principles: A Model for Chronic Illness with Jeffrey Moss, DDS, CNS, DACBN


In part two of this two part series on allostatic load, more detail will be presented to make the concept of allostatic load more understandable, particularly in relation to the underlying hypothesis of this series. This hypothesis suggests that allostatic load principles can be used to not only better explain the true causational nature of virtually any client case presentation, but how to better and more cost effectively address the metabolic imbalances that are having the greatest impact on loss of quality of life. In particular, emphasis will be placed on simple and cost effective methods of assessment and implementation that can be used to both identify and optimize these metabolic imbalances.
