Description

Natural Approaches to Healthy Immune Functions in a Novel Time – 2 hours

Robert G. Silverman, DC, DACBN, DCBCN, MS, CCN, CNS, CSCS, CIISN, CKTP, CES, HKC, FAKTR

With the advent of new research and management options surrounding the viral pandemic, many practitioners are deciding how to navigate the best direction to take with their patients.

As the pandemic continues, patients need additional help from clinicians to modify their lifestyle and dietary risk factors and improve their immune defenses. They need support in getting chronic inflammation and autoimmune conditions under control, moving toward a healthier weight (or avoiding additional weight gain), improving their diet, and improving their fitness through increased physical activity. These long-term goals are too late for the current pandemic's first wave, but later waves and new pandemics threaten. Patients who have experienced infection with a novel virus can develop long-lasting inflammation, leading to autoimmune disease and long-hauler syndrome. By helping your patients understand how to improve their immunity and reduce their risk, you give them the tools to enhance their ongoing health.

Join us for an insightful presentation with Dr. Robert Silverman, an industry expert. Dr. Silverman will discuss how to navigate this pandemic through multiple phases and share leading-edge protocols for improving patient outcomes. This presentation will cover inflammatory markers, protocols for calming systemic inflammation, optimizing the gut microbiome, and supporting mucosal immunity.

Learning Objectives:

  1. The influence of healthy microbiota on susceptibility to viral infections
  2. Functional medicine protocols for immunity
  3. COVID-19 infection and its association with the lung-gut-brain axis and microbiome dysbiosis
  4. Discussion of continuing healthy habits, addressing health concerns, and preparing one's health for return to the “new normal.”
  5. Recognize the link between obesity and COVID-19 morbidity and mortality
  6. Explain the importance of modifying personal lifestyle and dietary risk factors to reduce inflammation and improve immunity
    1. Protocols for supporting mucosal immunity
    2. Protocols for calming systemic inflammation
    3. Protocols for improving natural killer activity
  7. Recognize the possible rise in autoimmunity and increased inflammatory status following recovery from COVID-19 infection
