Supporting Immune Function: A Lifestyle and Nutrient Approach
September 5th, 2017 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. (CDT)
In an age of escalating chronic disease and stress-induced illness, unravelling immune system dysfunction is one of the most challenging endeavors that health care providers face. Years of research have greatly advanced our knowledge and understanding of the immune system, providing innovative avenues for effective immunity support strategies. While many infectious diseases of the past have ceased to be major threats, new immune challenges have emerged on the battleground of patient care.
Join Dr. Thomas G. Guilliams Ph.D., author of The Standard Road Map Series, as he delves into:
- Mechanisms and Consequences of Immune System Function
- Clinically Relevant Advances in Understanding the Immune System
- Lifestyle Intervention Strategies and Targeted Nutrient Support for Immune Function
