  • Mary Bove, ND draws on her lifelong experience working with the atopic child, especially children with asthma, and presents case studies for illustration.
  • Jillian Stansbury‘s lecture on gut permeability is included here to highlight the importance of repairing damaged intestinal walls and maintaining gut integrity for reducing immune hyperreactivity.
  • Kenneth Proefrock, NMD describes the development of hyperreactivity leading to asthma, and ways to normalize the membranes of the respiratory system to restore health. His therapies are, as usual, creative and unique and are based on years of experience treating this condition. (For clinicians only.)

Rebuilding Damaged Intestinal Walls and Treating Gut Permeability with Botanical Medicines
Jillian Stansbury, ND
When the permeability of the gut walls is altered, numerous systemic health complaints may result.

If these proteins are absorbed into the bloodstream, allergic and autoimmune conditions may manifest. This lecture offers herbal and nutritional therapies for repairing the intestinal mucosa and restoring optimal gut barrier functions. (Product Code: 16ME04)
