2015 Updated Listing of Dr Vasquez's Recent Books, Videos, and Articles

Orientation to the books and updates: Thank you for your visit, and I will provide context to the system here. These books are provided/printed by different bookstores and publishers, hence the need for orientation so that you can know what is the best route and also the least expensive route.

  • The learning system: At this time and for the forseeable future, Naturopathic Rheumatology v3.5 is the "master document", the "mother lode" and the best single outline of the protocol at 900 pages printed in color. The full-color printing costs a bit more but is completely worthwhile because you're going to spend several hours with this book and will reference it frequently. A competent clinician could easily recoup this expense in one visit or one day. So if the 900-page book helps you with one or two patients, then the book has paid for itself and the rest is profit for the next many years.

MAIN TEXT of 900 pages in color: Naturopathic Rheumatology v3.5 is the "master document", the "mother lode" and the best single outline of the protocol at 900 pages printed in color. Naturopathic Rheumatology v3.5 contains chapters 1-5. Because publishing 900 pages in color required that I use a new/different publisher, I don't have the ability to provide a discount on that book; however, I encourage you to get that particular book because it contains the most data, in color, and in a clearly organized and sequential structure.  You can and should be able to recoup the cost of the book within one patient visit, or otherwise one day or one week. I published Chapters 1-4 (in black and white) and Chapter 5 (in color) in the separate books listed below.

 Introduction
  • 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 Amazon.com for their orders.

*Founded in 1970, the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine (TCOM) has emerged as one of the nation's leading osteopathic medical schools. During this time, it has received both state and national recognition for its efforts to meet the demands of underserved populations and excellence in education. These honors include:

  • Top 15 Specialty Ranking in Rural Medicine:U.S. News & World Report, 2013 edition
  • Top 15 Specialty Ranking in Geriatrics, U.S. News & World Report, 2013 edition
  • Top 20 Specialty Ranking in Family Medicine, U.S. News & World Report, 2013 edition
  • Top 50 Medical Schools for Primary Care Medicine, U.S. News & World Report, 2002 through present

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.
