Saturday, April 23 | 9:00 – 10:30 am (Pacific Time) | Breakout Session
Restore Immune Tolerance for Optimum Survival
with Russell Jaffe, MD, PhD, CCN
Dr. Jaffe begins this exciting session by describing the importance of the two arms of the immune system, and how they operate to maintain homeostasis and health. An immune system preoccupied with defense is unable to repair, renew and restore. Inflammation, aptly termed “repair deficit,” is a well-recognized cause/amplifier of chronic, degenerative, and autoimmune conditions. The interrelationship between the microbiome, gut health, and homeostasis to combat repair deficit will be highlighted, including tests to detect delayed hypersensitivities. Dr. Jaffe outlines a comprehensive therapeutic plan of personalized nutrition, lifestyle modification and improved acid-alkaline balance, to allow the immune system to flourish.
