As healthcare providers we are educators for our patients “translating science into English” or the language of your choice. This presentation will provide every attendee with information that they have not heard or possibly considered before when it comes to preparing patients for seasonal viruses or historical effects such as COVID-19 pandemic on body and mind.
Bonus discussion will be on the synergy of some of my favorite botanicals and nutraceuticals that I have successful used since 1992 in my clinical practice.
