Doctors Launch Online Course To Fight Chronic Inflammation And Disease

CAPE CORAL, Fla. (September 28, 2020) – Tame Your Flame, LLC, founded by chiropractors Dr. Louis Scoma and Dr. Eric Gerken, has launched an online e-learning platform at to coach people on combating chronic inflammation, a leading cause of chronic diseases.  75 percent of the $3.5 trillion of healthcare dollars spent in the United States is for battling chronic disease according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This economic burden is the inspiration behind Taming your Flame.

“A recent study revealed that 66.5 percent of all bankruptcies were tied to medical issues. We want to teach people how to stay healthy and how to save healthcare dollars and avoid being wiped out,” said Dr. Scoma, president of Tame Your Flame and owner of Scoma Chiropractic.

Taming Your Flame is a series of five lessons that are self-paced. The program includes a self assessment tool to determine a personal baseline, in advance of the taking the five courses, establish a plan and re-assess in the future. Upon completion of the on-line lessons, students will understand the tools and tactics for mitigating chronic inflammation. A certificate of completion will be issued upon successful completion of the online classes signed by both doctors. A free course introduction is available on the Taming Your Flame YouTube channel.

The course outlines the progression of chronic disease from chronic inflammation to its culmination in named diagnoses such as Alzheimer’s, diabetes, obesity, heart, thyroid, and auto-immune disease. This chronic inflammation usually starts with dietary food allergies or sensitivities and stress, in combination with toxins, both internal and external. It always involves the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and imbalances between the external and internal environment, or the Microbiome.

“Chronic inflammation is at the intersection and is the common denominator of all auto-immune and other chronic diseases,” said Dr. Gerken, a functional medicine practitioner and diplomat of the American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M).

Subscribers to Taming Your Flame will also gain access to affiliates of Dr. Scoma and Dr. Gerken who share a like-minded philosophy toward diet and skincare. Affiliates offer pasture raised, truly free ranging, grass fed and grass finished meats and other non-GMO, organic or keto friendly products, free of paraben chemicals and glyphosate.
