•An overview of the disease pathology and epidemiology including; Aetiology, pathogenesis, pathophysiology and treatment of the disease from a western mainstream medical perspective. You will be expected to show high level of mechanistic detail in your exploration of pathophysiology and evaluate the evidence for efficacy of treatments, including side effects. •An overview of the disease process from a naturopathic and functional medicine perspective, including the possible drivers, causative agents and risk factors and integrated pathophysiological processes. •Ιnclude any conventional as well as functional laboratory tests that may be used to help discern different drivers that could affect the disease process. It is vital that you explain the rationale for these tests and critically evaluate the evidence base for these to weigh up the strengths and limitations of using these tests in clinical practice. •Evaluation of the current research of nutritional therapy and complementary therapies applicable to this condition. This is the most important part of the assignment and your word count should reflect this.
