  • This website is the main portal by which I share my expertise and passion for health, nutrition, and topics that are commonly known these days as integrative medicine, alternative medicine, and functional medicine. With more than a decade of clinical experience, three doctoral degrees (one of which is from one of the best medical schools* in the United States), and innumerable patient encounters and hours of post-graduate education, I've created my books to serve as clinically-oriented repositories of essential information and "clinical pearls" gained from professional training, personal experience, seminars, and constant perusal of various research databases.

  • Order fulfillment: Orders are filled with the most current version of the respective book(s) available. Given the intellectual and thus immediately transferrable nature of this material, and the fact that newer books provide password-protected access to copyrighted videos and tutorials, returns are for these reasons not permitted. We reserve the right to refuse service; in the rare event of such an occurance, customers can use for their orders.

Inflammation Mastery: Volume 1

  • Inflammation Mastery: Introduction ("Chapters 1,2,3,4") to Functional Inflammology and Integrative Pain Management is the culmination of several thousand research publications combined with Dr Vasquez’s many years of clinical experience and teaching graduate-level students and doctorate-level clinicians worldwide. With the photos, diagrams, acronyms, illustrations and explanations, Dr Vasquez makes it easier than ever for clinicians to grasp important concepts and then apply the basic science research and molecular biology in to treatment plans that can be explained and applied in “the real world” of clinical practice with patients. The associated video tutorials and recorded live conference presentations further help students and clinicians “get it” via Dr Vasquez’s teaching style which embraces complexity while always emphasizing clinical applicability and psychosocial context. The Inflammation Mastery & Functional Inflammology series of books and videos translates important concepts and nutritional/biomedical science into easy and practical clinical applications for the prevention and treatment of disorders of sustained inflammation, which Dr Vasquez describes as “patterns of metabolic disturbance and inflammatory dysfunction” existing in three sequential and overlapping categories: 1) metabolic inflammation, 2) allergic inflammation, 3) autoimmune inflammation. This book includes access to video presentations which introduce the origin and components of the Functional Inflammology Protocol and FINDSEX® acronym.
  • Due to technical limitations of the main publisher used, the largest book that can be printed is 630 pages in black/white/gray; thus you can see that this book reaches the limit at 630 pages. For color printing, especially for even larger books greater than 630 pages, we had to move to a different publisher (but only for color books >480 pages); the full-color version of this work is availble as Functional Inflammology Volume 1 available by a different publisher: see Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and additional details.
