Immune Advanced Practice Module, Institute of Functional Medicine

The office will be closed March 5th and 6th while I attend the IFM conference on the immune system. This is another exciting course in Functional Medicine, and looks at one of the foundational causes of disease, the dysfunction our immune system. This has wide reaching implications for treatment and prevention. For example, inflammation is a root cause of heart disease and a dysfunctional immune system is a root cause of cancer. There is also the possibility of modulating an immune system gone haywire, such as in rheumatoid arthritis. As always, I am delighted to bring back more advanced skills to my practice of medicine.
