Learn the functional medicine approach to working with allergies. Through lab based assessments we can measure GI function and liver toxicity issues that relate to allergies. The basic model of antigen-antibody complexes will be reviewed and we’ll take a look at the concept of antigen overload and how this impacts Phase 1 and Phase 2 liver detox pathways.
Simple lab based supplement protocols for liver support will be explained which include antioxidants, herbs and sulfur containing amino acids. We will also discuss removing the sources of antigens including diets which remove allergy triggering inflammatory foods and herbal programs to handle GI pathogens to get your patients relief.
