Immune challenges are one of the most significant health concerns of modern life. The absence of epidemics for several decades – due to improvements in sanitation, hygiene, nutrition, and working conditions – has been replaced by a massive increase in chronic, low-level infections, which significantly contribute to a range of conditions, including autoimmune and cardiovascular disease. 

This seminar will present safe, effective, natural approaches to improving immune health – both preventatively and in patients with active infections. Drawing on current research, and the 27-year clinical experience of the presenter, this seminar will give health professionals effective, time-tested ways to help patients with a practical approach to natural functional medicine. Attendees will learn specific patient care strategies using diet, lifestyle, nutritional support and botanical medicine. Look forward to an engaging seminar that will provide practical tools that you can use the next day in your practice.
