Immune Health and Nutritional Testing

Susan Blum, MD

Description

Immune dysfunction and inflammation are some of the primary driving forces behind complex, chronic disease and are often the root cause for patient symptoms. Common triggers include environmental toxins, intestinal dysbiosis, and oxidative stress. Finding and removing a patient's specific triggers is the central clinical approach in Functional Medicine. In addition, the immune system requires nutritional sufficiency for optimal function.

Dr. Blum will show you how to use NutrEval nutritional testing to find potential triggers, identify key nutritional deficiencies, and provide targeted treatments.

In this webinar we will focus on the following:

  1. Dysbiosis as a trigger of immune dysfunction
  2. Heavy metals and impaired metabolic detoxification
  3. Oxidative stress and need for antioxidants
  4. Nutrient deficiencies and their role in healthy immune system function

Keywords: immune dysregulation/ dysfunction – chronic disease – root cause – nutrition
