Main Presentation: “Health Optimization Medicine and Practice (HOMe/HOPe)” by Dr. Ted Achacoso

Health Optimization Medicine is the new specialty that takes care of the health of the basic cell that is common to all cells in the body — the nucleus, cytoplasm, mitochondria and other organelles, cell membrane, endoplasmic reticulum, cytoplasm, microtubules, etc — which forms the base of specialized cells like muscle cells and neurons, and which in turn, makes up the specialized organs in the body like the heart and the brain.

“Illness Medicine” diagnoses and treats disease at the level of the organ, for example, cardiology and neurology. In contrast, “Health Optimization Medicine” or HOMe detects and corrects imbalances at the level of the metabolome, for example, mitochondrial metabolites. HOMe is for physicians and HOPe is for non-physician healthcare practitioners. HOMe uses the sciences of Clinical Metabolomics, Epigenetics, Bioenergetics, Gut Immune System, Exposomics, Chronobiology, and Evolutionary Medicine – subjects currently not taught in medical schools.

About Dr. Ted Achacoso

Dr. Ted Achacoso is a college graduate in biology at the age of 18 and a doctor of medicine at the age of 22, he is the founding pioneer of the clinical practice of Health Optimization Medicine and Practice (HOMe/HOPe), which is the detection and correction of imbalances at the level of the metabolome. Dr. Ted is extremely lucky with mentors. He was mentored by Thierry Hertoghe, the founding pioneer of Anti-Aging Medicine and Nutritional Medicine (Dr. Ted is double board-certified, Paris). He was mentored by William S. Yamamoto, the founding pioneer of Medical Informatics and an Artificial Intelligence researcher (Washington, DC). He was mentored by D. Wayne Silby, the founding pioneer of Socially Responsible Investing and Finance (Washington, DC). He was mentored by three Philippine pioneers in Interventional Neuroradiology, Neurology, and Pharmacology/Toxicology (Manila).

His representative body of work includes a book containing the first ever neural circuitry database (“connectome”) for an organism, journal articles, US patents, software, grants, and recorded interviews, webcasts, podcasts, and speaking engagements in the areas of: (1) artificial ethology, computational neuroethology,  biomathematical modeling of nervous systems, and computability of consciousness, (2) medical informatics, medical decision-making, connectionist systems, and expert systems, (3) computer-assisted imaging, edge detection algorithms, and telehealth, (4) virtual group dynamics, communication, and collaboration methods (He created the first wireless groupware), (5) parallel, cluster, cloud, and distributed emergent computing, (6) predictive complex adaptive system modeling of financial time series, and (7) health optimization medicine including metabolomics, epigenetics, bioenergetics, gut microbiota, exposomics, chronobiology, and evolutionary medicine.

He is based in Washington, DC, maintains a tricontinental HOMe practice (North America, Europe, Asia), and performs HOMe/HOPe lecturing and mentoring to doctors and practitioners. Dr. Ted provides international corporate consulting activities involving nutritional supplement formulation and the establishment of metabolomics, mitochondria, and microbiota laboratories. He strongly suspects that this world is an illusion projected as a hologram by the human biocrystal, and pushes to create deliberately sustainable, happy dreams instead of nightmares.

Short Presentation:”Eating, Gut Health, & Metabolic Endotoxemia”by Roland Pankevich

The gastrointestinal system or the “gut” as its commonly referred too has become a major new frontier of research and action when it comes to health and wellness. While many hear small sounds bites of action items here and there, very few are looking at this in a clinical way. In this lecture, Roland Pankewich CEO of Health Optimization Practice will paint the picture of how everything from the food we eat to the internal landscape of our “microbiome” plays a massive role in the overall status of our health and wellness. To round out the expose, the topic of metabolic endotoxemia which is one of the driving forces of sub-clinical inflammation will be examined as it has been connected to a multitude of chronic degenerative diseases.
About Roland Pankevich
Roland Pankewich is the CEO of Health Optimization Practice (HOPe). He lives in Toronto, Canada where he also will be opening the country’s first HOPe clinic this year. His background in clinical nutrition and functional medicine give him a wide scope of theoretical understanding on the topics of biochemistry as well as practical applications to client care. In addition to working with health-focused clients and athletes, Roland consults for health companies as an educator and content creator to support clinical practitioners all over the country while also maintaining his role as part owner/operate of RIPE nutrition, a Canadian-based organic food company.
