Join Dr. Heather Zwickey, PhD and Professor of Immunology at National University of Natural Medicine as she discusses stress and the HPA axis, the communication between the gut and the central nervous system, whether cortisol is linked to stress or the circadian rhythm, and how to make therapeutic recommendations based on microbiome. After Dr. Zwickey’s presentation, join us for a live Q&A with Dr. Malisa Carullo, ND, Clinical Affairs Liaison for Metagenics.
In this webinar you will:
- Gain knowledge about how much our immune systems have suffered in the past 2+ years and how chronic inflammation contributes to depression, anxiety, and stress.
- Gain knowledge about the bidirectional relationship between cortisol and neurotransmitters, cytokines, metabolism, and sleep.
- Acquire skills in understanding how to address immune rejuvenation, and why we must address the microbiome and increase microbial diversity.
