The Immune System: From Pregnancy to Allergy

Watch Now

Date:  Wednesday,  November 18th, 2015

Time:   7pm EST (4pm PST)

Summary:


The immune system requires a series of sequential events to occur, and any interruption or assault to this delicate system can result in imbalance. The immune system begins to develop from the first fetal cells, and interruptions in healthy development or natural progression can alter the immune system, resulting in asthma, allergies, autism, and atopic conditions. This webinar will delve into the intricacies of the immune system and will help you develop a deeper understanding of how imbalances can render disease in infants to adults. We will explore various SNPs (gene variations) in immunology that predispose individuals to certain conditions, while gathering a further understanding of the pathology. This knowledge and insight will, in turn, allow you to better convey the health and healing process to your patients.


Webinar attendees can expect to learn:

  • Intricate aspects of the immune system, such as cytokines and interleukins
  • How allergy and atopy develop from pre-birth
  • The importance of specific gene expression and sequencing in the predisposition of these conditions
  • Specific treatment and prevention to maximize health
