As physicians, we have a cohort of patients with chronic and complex health issues that challenge our ability to definitively diagnosis and bring to bear treatment that restores their health. How often have we found ourselves in the uncomfortable position of being unclear how to help a patient through our care and yet, at the same time, unclear of the specialist we could refer them to who could help?

Research has been consolidating the model of limbic kindling and central sensitivity syndrome (CSS) as the primary physiological phenomenon underlying the syndromes that include  fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, chronic fatigue immunodeficiency, myalgic encephalomyelitis, irritable bowel, migraine, multiple chemical sensitivity, post-traumatic stress disorder and others.

Research and clinical experience indicates CSS develops from sufficiently severe and/or chronic stress (physical, chemical, emotional) resulting in degeneration of limbic and associated systems. Chemical intolerance stress is a critical and often overlooked vector for this process.

Restoration of allostasis and homeostasis requires assessing and restoring fundamental body systems, such as oxidation/reduction, mitochondrial function, neuron depolarization threshold, neurotransmitters, catabolic/ anabolic, xenobiotic chemical metabolism, and autonomic tone.

All of these ideas will be covered in a way that is tangible and understandable. Patient surveys and diagnostic algorithms will be included. The information will be distilled down to a practical and actionable method for you to use in service to your complex and chronic patients immediately.


Dr. Mark Force is a graduate of the University of Western States (Doctor of Chiropractic, 1984), diplomate and instructor for the International College of Applied Kinesiology (DIBAK, 1990) and fellow and instructor for the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture (FIAMA, 2002). He has served as an editor and contributor for reference manuals on diagnosis and therapies for systems-focused healthcare and partner with the clinical nutrition industry such as index medicus listed research that led to the patent for Biotics Research’s A.D.P.® and patent pending ScentArest™

Very sick with ulcerative colitis, chronic fatigue syndrome and related conditions as a teen, Dr. Force was unable to recover with conventional healthcare and was driven to  nd answers on his own. Discovering The Stress of Life by Hans Selye, MD was the transformative moment that led to his healing and fire for learning and understanding how we, and our patients, heal. Dr. Force has been using a systems-driven model integrating conventional medicine diagnostics with natural therapeutics since 1984.
